Bigtincan Acquires Zunos
Bigtincan, a provider of mobile, artificial intelligence-powered sales enablement automation, has acquired training and enablement platform provider Zunos. The deal, valued at $8 million, was made possible by Bigtincan's recent $15 million funding round.
Bigtincan's sales enablement platform will be combined with Zunos' mobile-first learning and onboarding.
"Bigtincan is excited to welcome the Zunos team to our family," said David Keane, co-founder and CEO of Bigtincan, in a statement. "The unique technology and market presence of Zunos adds to Bigtincan's vision of empowering sales and service professional to be more successful and productive every day. Leveraging Zunos' unique approach to partner enablement, this acquisition also furthers our market reach to include the traditionally extended and often neglected network of our customers."
In addition to Zunos' learning capabilities, this acquisition also adds American Airlines, Sony PlayStation, and Telstra to Bigtincan's customer base. And, as part of the integration, Bigtincan will leverage Zunos' expertise to shape its comprehensive learning platform in the Bigtincan Hub, focusing on micro-learning strategies to ensure retention, gamification to boost engagement, and partner enablement to ensure holistic dissemination of content and knowledge across partner teams and organizations.
"Zunos' technology improves the performance of individuals by taking learning and skills development to the next level, truly engaging people with a unique learning experience," said Stefan Teulon, CEO of Zunos, in a statement. "In pairing our expertise with Bigtincan's innovative, AI approach, expansive go-to-market team, and global presence, we are excited to shape the future of learning and sales enablement for a growing global market."
