Under the acquisition agreement, Altigen has acquired the intellectual property for the CoreInteract platform in exchange for annual royalty payments, in the form of cash and Altigen stock, to be made to Blue Panda based on revenue generated by the CoreInteract platform over a three-year period. In addition, Blue Panda retains responsibility for its outstanding liabilities, and key Blue Panda management and engineering personnel will transition to Altigen.
According to Mark Allen, former CEO of Blue Panda and now Vice President of Technology and Alliances at Altigen, "I'm very excited to be joining forces with Altigen due to their reputation in the industry and ability to accelerate the business opportunity with the CoreInteract platform. Although we're still in the early stages of the product life cycle, having access to Altigen's sales and technical resources as well as their base Microsoft channel partners, are huge factors in driving the adoption of the CoreInteract platform."
"Our business objective is to become the leading provider of cloud communications solutions and services for Microsoft Teams", said Jerry Fleming, President and CEO of Altigen. "Mark Allen stands out as a true industry visionary. We're really pleased that Mark and his Blue Panda ownership group decided to join the Altigen team. The CoreInteract platform is spot on as the enterprise digital customer engagement platform for Microsoft Teams. Combined with our FrontStage Teams Contact Center solution Altigen will now uniquely be able to offer the most complete and progressive suite of advanced communications solutions for Teams - addressing the requirements of office personnel, work at home employees and corporate contact center agents."
