It is one of these technology providers’ most important partners, and it is one of the fastest growing digital integrators in German-speaking Europe. FOCUS and Statista have elected NEXUS United Growth Champion for 2020 and placed it in the Top 25 of the fastest-growing companies in Germany.

The right solutions for each customer scenario
At the moment, valantic sees no single technology that is dominating the CX market. Instead, the company is assuming a regular distribution of market shares across several large CX software players and expects that this will remain so for the foreseeable future. “Each customer scenario is different. That’s why it’s so important to us to be technology agnostic and to have strong, technology-based teams. Only this way can we be in a position to offer the right solutions for each customer requirement. Thanks to the merger with NEXUS United, we are now even better positioned in the CX sector,” explains von Daniels.
