Telappliant snaps up hosted telephony provider Orbtalk

Cloud comms firm Telappliant has snapped up Brighton-based hosted telephony provider Orbtalk, creating a business with more than 5,000 SME customers.

Orbtalk's Userve portal enables customers to progress from an online enquiry to a live hosted telephony service within minutes, claims the company, which has multiple points of global presence.

Tan Aksoy, Director of M&A at Telappliant, added: "The purchase of Orbtalk will enable us to build on the existing southern England business and build on the skillset and intellectual property that Orbtalk has built up over the years."

Telappliant MD Muhammad Nasim said: "The combined organisation helps us to deepen our focus on UK SMEs, as well as position us for the continued execution of our growth strategy."
