Contextual Communications

Contextual Communications Overview

By Kyle Howard-Johnson and Grady Kidder

The communications software market is undergoing a dramatic shift from legacy hardware- and network-centric systems to more efficient cloud-based tools that enable businesses to have more meaningful and informed contextual conversations with their customers.

Catalyst has seen this first-hand through its investment in Weave (recently named to the 2019 Forbes Cloud 100). For example, a common phone call between a dentist office using Weave and their patient has been transformed from “while I have you on the phone, is there anyone else in your family that needs an appointment?” to “while I have you on the phone, I see your children haven’t had appointments in over a year – should we get them scheduled next month as well?”

Weave’s solutions are just one example of how contextual communications are having an impact on how businesses communicate internally and with their customers – Catalyst believes we’re in the early days of a generational transformation and is excited to partner with more vertically and functionally focused businesses enabling contextual communications.

At Catalyst, we employ a proactive, research-based approach to investing, targeting sectors experiencing outstanding growth. If you are an owner, operator, or investor in a growth stage company innovating the way businesses communicate either with their customers or internally, we would like to hear from you.
