PRIMEPULSE Leads Investment to Grow Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business Software and Services
Bellevue, Wash., June 29, 2018 – Unify Square™, the leading provider of software and cloud managed services for Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business, today announced it secured roughly $10 million in Series C funding. PRIMEPULSE SE, a global investment holding group, led the round.
On the heels of its most successful fiscal year to-date, the new funding will allow Unify Square to accelerate go-to-market sales and marketing efforts and fuel new software engineering initiatives. The capital infusion will also work to accelerate and broaden the Unify Square PowerSuite software product line, especially across the Microsoft Intelligent Communications platform, and to further boost the set of Unify Square Microsoft Teams services.
“At PRIMEPULSE, we pride ourselves on investing in strong markets with growth potential as well as technology leaders and Unify Square checked all the boxes in the unified communications and collaboration industry,” said Klaus Weinmann, chairman of the board at PRIMEPULSE. “As unified communications technology continues to become more integral to global business, Unify Square has a clear vision for expanding its services to a broader audience. We are looking forward to helping them execute against that vision and acquire the next wave of customers looking to fully optimize their Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business strategies.”
“Coming off of being named a 2018 Gartner Cool Vendor and acknowledgement by Nemertes for top customer ratings, this investment is a tipping point for us to propel our growth and make an impact on large enterprises looking to improve end-user productivity,” said John Case, CEO of Unify Square. “In PRIMEPULSE, we’ve found the right partner that can help us make our vision a reality. In particular, PRIMEPULSE cleared the way to start a partnering dialogue with CANCOM SE, one of the leading providers of IT services and solutions in Germany.”
This investment brings Unify Square’s total funding to nearly $45 million following its Series B round in February of 2015. Earlier this year, Unify Square announced three new services for companies to successfully transition to and thrive with Microsoft Teams, including PowerSuite Cloud Managed Services for Teams, Teams Transformation Services™, and Teams User Adoption Services.
