Vonage (Nasdaq: VG), a global leader in cloud communications helping businesses accelerate their digital transformation, has been named the Leader in the Omdia Universe: Selecting a CPaaS Platform 2022* report. Omdia calls out the strength of Vonage’s CPaaS platform, its community of more than one million registered developers, wide geographic reach, enterprise-grade services, and robust global communications network.
Noting Vonage’s history as a pioneer in the Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) space, Omdia also recognizes the Company for its prominent status as a global leader in providing a cloud-based communications platform and applications, like unified communications and contact centre, to enterprises.
Also noted is Vonage’s strong and steady growth in its CPaaS business, reporting a 42% increase for 2021, as well as its ability to integrate with the power of the full Vonage Communications Platform (VCP) to provide enterprise communications solutions. VCP is a unique and powerful combination of CPaaS, Unified Communications, Contact Centre and Conversational Commerce solutions, all of which are increasingly critical for businesses to perform better, connect easier and create more meaningful customer engagement.
Pamela Clark-Dickson, Principal Analyst, Advanced Messaging and Communications for Omdia, commented: “In this increasingly digital world, CPaaS capabilities have become a must for businesses across industries that want to make meaningful connections with customers and to keep those loyalties in an incredibly competitive landscape. Vonage has been ranked as a leader in the Omdia Universe because it scored highly across a range of categories for its CPaaS capabilities, including APIs, value-added services and packaged solutions, access and integration, and use cases, among others.”

As one of the largest CPaaS vendors by revenue, Vonage is a Market Leader taking the top spot in eight of the ten categories that Omdia scored, including access and integrations, use cases, and partnerships with the highest results coming from APIs (95%) and technical support (92%).
