As part of this growth plan, the company is inclined to make accelerated investments in hosting tailored customer events, marketing meets and roundtable conferences to build its network of brand loyalists in the region. “The South African market expansion requires keen assessment and dedicated planning. Expanding in this region is an important way to magnify the size of the market we serve, and in an increasingly globally competitive marketplace, a necessary step for us.”

Jain further added how the Freshworks’ suite of industry-leading customer engagement products along with a growing customer and partner base in the region will augment the company’s local operations and transform the way businesses currently engage with their customers. “Our aim is to build rich, meaningful engagement with enterprises of all sizes that are looking for new cutting-edge solutions to power their customer and employee experiences.”
