EurekaSoft and Voxpilot Complete Merger
PARIS, France - Eureka Soft S.A. and Voxpilot announced the completion of their merger. The alliance of the two companies brings together 15 years of telco experience with deployments in 14 countries and pan-European experience in VoiceXML.
The newly created company, trading under the brand name of Voxpilot, offers a next-generation communications platform based on globally accepted standards and open architectures, which bridges IP/PSTN networks and enables flexible network evolution from 2G to 3G. Voxpilot solutions help carriers and service providers to improve customer loyalty and increase profitability through revenue-generating voice and network services.
The investors of both Eureka Soft and Voxpilot are providing funds to enable the company's international expansion and positioning. Following the completion of the merger, 2.5 Million Euro have been invested in the merged company by SPEF Banque Populaire, Innovacom and Netinvest.
Voxpilot is headquartered in Paris, with its R and D center remaining in Dublin. To solidify its presence in the European market, the company is opening sales offices in the UK (for Northern Europe) and Germany (for Central and Eastern Europe). A newly established sales office in the US facilitates Voxpilot's expansion into the North American market. Voxpilot currently has 50 employees world-wide.
Gilles Meyer, who has been nominated CEO by the board of the merged company, explains, "The merger between the two companies brings together complementary technology and know-how. It allows us to compete with the best in the market and strengthens our offering as well as our international presence through the expansion of our sales and marketing capabilities. I am confident that Voxpilot will be able to achieve its objectives and consolidate its position as a leading provider of carrier-grade open standards media platforms world-wide."
