The investment will be used to accelerate product development in its software platform, as well as sales, and marketing efforts as the Company expands its global reach and cloud contact center service portfolio.“AVOXI is on a roll,” said David Wise, AVOXI founder & CEO, “and this investment is a testament to the work of our entire team.

We see significant growth opportunities in all phases of the AVOXI business.”
