Content Guru will be among 1200 organisations exhibiting from across more than 25 countries, and will once again have the opportunity to demonstrate the award-winning features of its storm solution to a US and global audience.
Sean Taylor, CEO of Content Guru, says:
“2016 was a landmark year for Content Guru and the whole Redwood Technologies Group. We not only posted growth of more than 50% in pre-tax profits and 30% in revenues; we acquired a whole new slate of household name customers and gained industry-wide recognition by winning a number of key awards. It’s no surprise that we feel this is the perfect time to push on with our global expansion strategy. We are thrilled to be making our debut at these three nationally-renowned US events.
“The USA represents the world’s largest contact center market, and it is contested by the world’s leading technology companies. Therefore it represents the ultimate stage on which to scale up our storm business. The Redwood Technologies Group has had a long and successful history in the US. I started my career as a software engineer in Silicon Valley and I’m thrilled to be coming back to this country now, at the head of an award-winning cloud provider, equipped with world-beating communications integration services.”
