Jason Roos, CEO of the newly merged company said; “We are extremely excited about the merger of Cirrus and TelXL. Our channel partners and customers trust us to provide transformative customer contact solutions with unrivalled uptime and scalability. The merger significantly increases our development capacity and will allow us to bring even more exciting products and solutions to market in ever shorter timescales.

In 2015, TelXL acquired 51% of Cirrus and this merger is the next step in our journey together. We have successfully traded as a Group for many years and merging will bring us even closer together, with common goals and a shared vision of the future.
