Sangoma Recognized By Leading Analyst Firm For 7th Consecutive Year
Sangoma Technologies Corporation (“Sangoma”) (TSXV: STC), an industry leader in delivering cloud-native Communications-as-a-Service solutions for businesses of all sizes, today announced that they were named to the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide. This is Sangoma’s seventh straight year being recognized. The Gartner Magic Quadrant assesses UCaaS providers worldwide to identify Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries, and Niche Players.
Sangoma was positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the 2021 “Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide”. Sangoma is one of only fourteen other companies to be evaluated and placed in 2021, and one of six companies to appear consecutively for the last seven years. We believe Sangoma’s value-based pricing, complete UCaaS suite, expansion of Sangoma’s reachable market, and their CPaaS and applications that augment partners’ vertical offerings and customer experiences led to our recognition.
“We are thrilled to be recognized in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant,” said Bill Wignall, CEO of Sangoma. “Sangoma has grown rapidly for many years in the industry and is now among the top tier of cloud communications companies, so it’s very gratifying to be recognized in this manner. Our clients appreciate the industry’s most complete set of cloud communications services, cloud-based and on-premise deployment options, and exceptional customer service, so we believe this award will be reassuring to our customers and prospects alike.”
