CommuniGate Systems turns the pages on Internet Communications for 25 years!

3 March 2016, San Francisco, California - Berlin, Germany - CommuniGate Systems, the leader in compliant web and mobile Unified Communications technology for Contact Centers opens another chapter in the evolution of Internet Communications. The company is proud to have served a fiercely loyal customer landscape and global partner network spanning over 200 million end users for two and a half decades of innovation.

Moving thru 25 years in any industry requires not only the capacity to adjust and compensate for change, but also deliver compelling products for customers that might not have existed in previous product cycle generations. The company has sailed thru more than 2 decades of profitability with no outstanding debts and remains determined to open new markets with innovative products that were not possible to envision circa 1991.

Today the Internet has moved into a model where people not only are mobile in terms of their physical work habits, but also the devices are oriented towards mobility slipping into the pocket or pouch vs laying on the desk. Furthermore, we all typically have many devices connected to services today, compared to when the desk PC was not only king, but it was normally the only device a user had. Adding to the expansion of mobility, the devices now themselves are becoming "connected" thru the so called "IoT" or "Internet of Things" phase of the evolutionary process.

The chief milestones of reflection for the company is mirrored to the phases of the evolution of the Internet itself. Since the company's focus has always been around Internet Protocol communications, as these protocols have improved, or entered the market, we have adapted and evolved ourselves.
