Dstny acquires Qunifi and takes a leading position in Microsoft Teams business integrations

The acquisition is an essential part of Dstny’s strategy in business integrations; accelerating how business value and innovation is added to Microsoft Teams users.

Brussels, 28 March 2022 – Dstny, the European provider of cloud-based Business Communication solutions, announces the acquisition of the leading UK-based Microsoft Teams integration specialist Qunifi. Qunifi’s Call2Teams platform is the global leader in Teams integration for UCaaS providers. Their service spans the globe with end customers in over 100 countries and organizations with over 2 Million Teams users relying upon Qunifi for their daily communications.

“We are always looking for talented companies that fit with our strategy and company culture and which we can help grow faster at the same time. This acquisition of Qunifi is a perfect example of that", says Daan De Wever CEO of the Dstny Group. "With the acquisition of Telepo and its UCaaS platform in the summer of 2021, we took a big step forward in the field of business communication solutions. The acquisition of Meridix in late 2021 was another big step, but in the area of communication analytics, and with Qunifi we are now doing the same again, this time in the world of business integrations. The Call2Teams platform was 'born in the cloud,' just like us, and it's a state of the art technology with a native integration which means an incredible user experience”, concludes De Wever.

Qunifi will become part of the Dstny for Service Provider organization and the team and management will be integrated within the Dstny Group. Joining the Dstny Group will enhance business opportunities, drive new product development, and accelerate growth for service provider customers, partners and both the Dstny and Qunifi teams.

“We are proud and excited to become part of the Dstny group”, adds Jeannie Arthur, CEO of Qunifi. “We will be in a great position to continue to support and grow the relationships with our existing partners, accelerate product development and innovation, and remain at the cutting edge of digitalized business integrations.” Dstny and Qunifi will align their roadmaps, so our respective partners and service providers get access to more innovative products.  Support for third party Cloud PBX solutions remains in focus and is aligned with Dstny's strategy. “Our partners will continue to be managed by the Qunifi team as before and as part of the Dstny Group, the additional group resources will allow us to focus on growth”

In Business communications, much like in other industries, individuals, teams and organizations of every size expect to be able to select the products that fit their individual needs and for these products to then work seamlessly together.  “Within the Dstny Group, it is our ambition to play well with others; to make it easy for our service providers to access to new innovations that provide value to their end users. In addition to the added value of Call2Teams for end customers, we also see significant synergies between our Dstny for Service Provider solutions and Qunifi's Carrier Automate service which bridges the gap between service providers and Microsoft Operator Connect. Qunifi's Automated Teams integration aligns perfectly with Dstny's FMC (Fixed-Mobile Convergence) technology for mobile operators ”, concludes Patrik Sorqvist, COO of the Dstny Group.
