Knowlarity Acquires Unicom Techlabs

knowlarityGurgaon-based cloud telephony company Knowlarity Communications has acquired Unicom Techlabs, a startup in the same sector, for an undisclosed amount. Unicom had more than 200 customers who will now be handed over to Knowlarity along with all the intellectual property it developed.

Started by Ambarish Gupta and Pallav Pandey in 2009, Knowlarity currently has products such as SuperReceptionist, Smart IVR, SuperFax and SuperConference. It’s not clear what products and IP Unicom developed or in what way they differ from that of Knowlarity.

Knowlarity has about 6,000 paid clients in 65 countries and is backed by Sequoia Capital which invested Rs 34 crore in the company in January 2012. It had also received funding from Emergic Venture Capital in the past. Unicom was started in May 2012 and was on course to breach the Rs 1 crore milestone in revenue for 2014 before it chose to go with Knowlarity.

Knowlarity is expecting revenue of Rs 75 crore in FY-15 and has clients such as Asian Hospital and online food guide Zomato. The company is looking forward to take over more companies in the field to help expand their operations into emerging markets, starting with Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.

There are several other Indian companies in this sector such as Ozonetel, ExotelIntelliverse, VoiceTreeMicrotel among others.

Last year Ozonetel had acquired the Indian customers of Resolvity Information Technologies, another cloud telephony player barely a year after entering the country. Ozonetel had also absorbed all the employees of Resolvity in India. It is worth noting that Resolvity had closed India operations to focus on other markets and Knowlarity also seems to be focusing on the same markets now.
