Pexip Holding ASA (“Pexip”, Oslo Børs Ticker: PEXIP), a leading enterprise video communication platform provider, today announced the acquisition of Skedify, a Belgium based Software-as-a-Service customer engagement solution.

The utilization of video as a core communication tool has accelerated over the last few years, not only for internal meetings in organizations, but also increasingly in customer-facing applications across industries. Many organizations in sectors such as retail and financial services are opening their eyes to the huge potential video communication has to improve customer service and interaction.

The addition of the Skedify customer engagement platform to the Pexip portfolio enables Pexip to provide an end-to-end solution to meet the needs of customers in key verticals, such as Financial Services, High-Involvement Retail and HR & Recruitment. With Skedify’s capabilities for customer meeting scheduling and lead qualification and video engagement, customer-facing teams can now be equipped with a fully integrated solution by Pexip to enhance their lead generation, productivity and customer experience. This type of video enablement solution is a key strategic focus for Pexip and is a rapidly growing market.

“Pexip, with its secure and customizable platform, is leading the way in video enablement and central to this is providing end-to-end solutions that bring organizations and their clients closer together,” said Øystein Hem, Interim CEO and CFO at Pexip. “In its capacity as a Pexip solution partner, Skedify has already demonstrated successful growth by offering the Skedify platform and Pexip video as a single solution. With the acquisition of Skedify, we are taking this to the next level to offer our joint customers a platform that easily integrates video to offer a leading customer-facing solution. This will make it easier and faster for our customers to deploy a video-enabled digital customer journey. We are excited to welcome the Skedify team onboard as part of Pexip.”
