CX Consulting Acquisition: Avtex Buys CPI’s Assets

Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Avtex has acquired the assets of Communications Products Inc. (CPI), an Indiana-based contact center and communication solutions provider. Financial terms were not disclosed.

This is M&A deal number 227 that ChannelE2E has covered so far in 2020. See the complete M&A deal list here.

Avtex, a major Microsoft Dynamics partner, provides customer experience (CX) consulting and technology services. This acquisition involves CPI’s portfolio of Genesys customers. Genesys sells CX and call center technology to mid-sized and large businesses. CPI has leveraged the Genesys platform and eMite portfolio to create customized contact center solutions for its clients.

Avtex and CPI both have a longstanding relationship with Genesys, joining as partners in 1997.

Cliff Arellano, CEO and founder of CPI, added:

“Since 1983, we have worked exceptionally hard to build a team of contact center experts who are passionate about helping our customers reimagine how they interact with their customers.
