Ameyo, a Bangalore-based company providing omnichannel customer and contact centre solutions, has raised around US$5 million in Series A funding from city-based private equity firm, Forum Synergies.

The funds will be used to expand to the US, as well as to add new products in the contact centre and sales acceleration technology space.

As part of the funding, Samir Inamdar, Co-founder, MD and CEO of Forum Synergies, will join the Board of Drishti, parent of Ameyo.

“Contact Centres are undergoing rapid transformation both in terms of impact to the core business and movement to cloud. This represents a US$3 billion global opportunity. Telesales and inside sales teams are adapting sales acceleration technology which is a US$12 billion opportunity and growing very fast. This fresh funding will catalyse our larger participation in both of these fantastic market opportunities,” said Bishal Kumar, CEO of Drishti.
