“Companies are increasingly adopting cloud-based contact center solutions as they undergo digital transformation and modernize their approach to omnichannel customer support,” said Jai Das, Managing Director and President of Sapphire Ventures. “This trend began taking shape before COVID-19, but the pandemic accelerated the need for a cloud-native, all-in-one omnichannel contact center solution like UJET. We believe UJET is uniquely positioned to lead a new wave of contact center companies tackling the challenge of finding a better way for customers to connect with brands.”
Das joins the existing UJET board of directors that include investors Jason Krikorian, General Partner, DCM; Ted Schlein, Partner, Kleiner Perkins; and Karim Faris, General Partner at GV.

The fundraise comes on the heels of remarkable growth for UJET, having seen its total number of licenses increase by 400% over the past 12 months while also furthering its expansion into sectors including on-demand services, e-commerce and retail, financial services, healthcare, IoT, and more.
“Today’s digital-first customers expect a hyper-personalized experience where they can effortlessly connect with a virtual or live agent, and have their issues resolved in a fast, efficient, and modern manner,” said Founder & CEO, Anand Janefalkar. “We’re thrilled to continue investing in our mission of developing cloud-native and smartphone-centric solutions with scale and security as cornerstones, to facilitate the reimagining of consumer journeys that build trust, loyalty, and drive higher customer satisfaction.”
