The five year old company also announces that, through its service provider customers, it has 10,000 active users of VoIP lines in small businesses. Service providers have deployed the silhouette software to businesses located throughout Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the Caribbean.

This round of funding, in which all existing investors participated, was led by Wesley Clover and BDC Venture Capital, and brings the total investment in Natural Convergence to US$29M.

"Our product was designed from day one to provide a simple, compelling offer ideally suited for mass market distribution.

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
