According to J2 Global’s press release, “The Landslide acquisition reflects continued execution of our plan to expand our array of cloud-based services for business,” said Hemi Zucker, CEO of j2 Global. “Landslide brings us a proven CRM platform for small to mid-sized businesses and an established customer base. It also provides us an additional value-added service to sell through our existing sales channels and into our existing base of more than 2 million paid cloud service subscribers.”
J2 Global is one of the largest providers of online and internet based fax services with more than 2 million paid subscribers, bringing popular brands such as efax and myfax to the faxing world. As Landslide Technolgy’s background is primarily CRM and cloud based technology, this opens up a number of interesting potential avenues for updates to J2 Global’s platform.
