Weston Digital has been developing digital communications recording technology for over two decades. It is trusted by the UK national government and local authorities, as well as organisations including Avon & Somerset Police, BT, Investec, Boeing and Airbus.

The acquisition continues the “Group’s mission to aid hundreds of the world’s leading organisations to achieve better customer and agent experience, through its multi-award winning platform, storm”, said a statement.

The full share acquisition combines the existing customer engagement expertise in its cloud-based contact centre solutions provided by Group subsidiary Content Guru, with Weston Digital’s omni-channel recording and quality management capabilities. Weston’s screen recording and quality monitoring technology will now be available as part of the Content Guru suite of products.

Derek Townsend, managing director of Surrey-based Weston Digital Technologies, said: “Having worked with Redwood as a strategic partner, the synergies and complimentary cultures quickly became obvious. This is a match made in heaven, to become part of a large company that operates on a truly global scale.
