Knowlarity Communications, pioneers of Cloud Telephony in India, acquires Unicom Techlabs Pvt. Ltd, a cloud telephony start-up. Knowlarity, which is on an expansion spree, is India’s first ever company to acquire an associate telephony start-up in this domain.
Unicom Techlabs, starting out in May 2012, introduced their Cloud Telephony service, Cloud Line, soon after inception.

With this acquisition, Knowlarity acquires Unicom’s 200 plus customers in SMB, E-commerce, Real Estate, Healthcare, Education and media segment. Besides Unicom’s IT domain and customers, Knowlarity will get full ownership of intellectual propriety belonging to the company.
Shruti Agarwal, CFO, Knowlarity adds, “We at Knowlarity are overwhelmed to have successfully acquired Unicom. It is also a great learning experience for all the consequent deals in the pipeline for 2014 which will take us further towards our goal of market consolidation. Knowlarity is more than willing to help startups looking for an exit option in a fast consolidating market. We have more acquisitions planned in the coming year which is definitely a promising start to 2014 for all of us at Knowlarity.”
Puneet Kaura, Founder of Unicom says, “Owing to the competitive edge in the IT sector, we decided to take the initiative of seeking help from the industry experts and Knowlarity being the leaders were among the finest options we had. We drew the deal to expose our customers to a more refined outlook, expert technological advancements and advanced ways of servicing the customers.”
