BroadSoft Acquires mPortal for Mobile UC Design

BroadSoft announced its acquisition of mPortal, a privately-held firm that offers mobile-centric design and development capabilities.  mPortal’s mobile-centric design and development capabilities will provide the foundation for BroadSoft Design – which allows service providers and enterprises to customize and differentiate UC solutions built around BroadSoft’s UC-One solution. mPortal is based in McLean, Virginia. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“It is increasingly clear that a ‘one size fits all’ strategy for delivering unified communications is insufficient for meeting the superior and differentiated end-user experiences that businesses demand,” said Scott Hoffpauir, chief technology officer, BroadSoft. “The mPortal acquisition and launch of BroadSoft Design reaffirms our commitment of simplifying how our customers sell, deliver and support UC services, innovating to give service providers a competitive market advantage and accelerating market adoption of unified communications through a superior end-user experience.”
