Making Communications More Meaningful Since 2004
We may have a fresh take on how enterprises need to stop talking at their customers and start having a conversation with them, but we’ve been helping them communicate more effectively for a very long time! The world has changed significantly in the past 16 years, with digital becoming more front and center and customers becoming more in control, but our focus has remained consistent—helping our customers become industry leaders in getting the right information to the right people at the right time while maintaining compliance and the most stringent security measures along the way.
Leading the Cloud Evolution
Only offerings purposefully built for the cloud can deliver the speed, agility, business-user control, reduced total cost of ownership and potential for the more cohesive customer experience that has made cloud-based solutions so desirable. To make this vision a reality, we delivered our hybrid-cloud solution in 2014. Yes, 2014! And this was just the start of our commitment to the cloud which today also includes Pure Cloud deployment via AWS.
A New Name and New Commitment to Scale the Conversation
In 2016, with the backing of Accel-KKR, one of the world’s premier tech-focused private equity firms, Smart Communications as it exists today was born - and we didn’t waste any time!

With a renewed focus, we forged ahead, developing innovative product features and unmatched professional services offerings designed to help the world’s largest enterprises – in all kinds of industries – improve internal efficiency and increase ROI while delivering more meaningful communications to their customers. This is what is means to scale the conversation!
