Yay: the complete business communication cloud

Tuesday 29th November, 2022

Yay was founded in 2014 with the objective of providing businesses with a high-quality voice platform. Today, it is recognised as the most advanced and reliable communications platform available. It recently received a private equity investment from Queen’s Park Equity (QPE), the London-based fund that provides capital and expertise to high-quality, entrepreneur-led businesses. Marriott Harrison is pleased to have advised Yay on its investment.

Yay enables businesses to have reliable, high-quality calls wherever they are with its softphone app. The UK-based start-up also saves its customer’s call costs with its state-of-the-art hosted VoIP service and feature-rich Cloud PBX. With several APIs and webhooks, Yay helps its customers increase productivity and efficiency.

The investment from PQE will enable Yay to drive a class-leading centralised communications platform to TelcoSwitch’s rapidly growing base of channel partners. Russell Lux, TelcoSwitch Founder & CEO, said: “We’re delighted to be able to work with Yay.com to expand our offering to channel partners and meet the demands of their end-customers.”

Commenting on Marriott Harrison’s involvement in the deal, Matt Mansell, CEO of Yay, said, “David and the team at Marriott Harrison are nothing short of simply on it! They recognise what’s important in the immediate to keep a deal moving and highly intellectual in approach, covering all bases throughout. I can’t recommend them enough.”

David Baverstock led the Marriott Harrison team, which included Troy Featherstone, Katerina Heal, Rory Duthie and Sofia Gottgens.
