“This investment from two of the most successful venture capital firms in the industry allows us to accelerate growth in all areas of our company to meet the increasing global demand for UCaaS that we are seeing in the market,” Thinking Phone Networks president and chief executive Steven Kokinos said in a statement. “Cloud communications adoption has become mainstream, with thousands of midsized and larger enterprises already benefitting from the significant business process improvements and cost savings that cloud deployment brings.
