Video conferencing firm, Zoom has announced a multibillion dollar deal with cloud-based call centre operator, Five9.

Zoom announced the $14.7bn (£10.7bn) deal in a post on Sunday.

The company’s boss, Eric Yuan said the deal would allow its customers to “re-imagine the way they do business”.

The acquisition marks the firm’s biggest takeover, and comes even though staffs are beginning to return to the office.

 The covid-19 pandemic prompted a shift in the work culture to a remote work for many businesses, transforming Zoom into a household name.

Zoom expects sales to rise more than 40% this year, reaching more than $3.7bn (£2.66bn).

In December of 2020, sales were up 370% compared to the same period in 2019, hitting $882.5m in March.
