With this acquisition, the two companies believe they will be able to move quicker and innovate faster than others in the space in order to capture a significant share of the global digital workplace market which is expected to grow from $22.7 billion in 2020 to $72.2 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 21.3%, and the global event management software market which is forecasted to grow from $3.6 billion in 2020 to $6.4 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 10.0% according to research firm.
“This acquisition of The CXApp and its fusion with Inpixon’s products, immediately with mapping and on-device positioning and in the near term with our sensors and tags, is a transformative step to grow our business significantly,” said Nadir Ali, CEO of Inpixon. “Due to the increasing need for technologies that can support the changing demands of a hybrid workplace, The CXApp has experienced over 73% in revenue growth in 2020 as compared to the prior year and an even greater increase in demand and pipeline growth, and we are seeing this rapid growth rate continue into 2021. As a combined solution, Inpixon expects to see an increase in average selling price (ASP) by 10x over its existing mapping products currently offered to enterprise organizations, which we anticipate will result in substantial revenue growth. The CXApp’s platform for multi-location, live-streamed and on-demand events is another key market need addressed by Inpixon as a result of the acquisition. Leveraging The CXApp’s event management platform for the booming hybrid events category could further increase the expected revenues and help us to achieve added valuation metrics for this product line reflective of events companies recently, such as Hopin and Bizzabo.”
Leon Papkoff, EVP, Inpixon’s CXApp Division, stated, “With nearly one million end-user profiles deployed globally across a dozen countries, The CXApp has pioneered workplace technology for the last six years, leading innovative experiences across employee engagement, office solutions, and desk booking technology for Fortune 500 and other enterprise customers in high tech, healthcare, media, retail, and financial services. We are pleased to have joined Inpixon, and we look forward to continuing the mutual success with our great ecosystem partners as we help businesses bring their employees back to the office in a safe and efficient manner that carries over well beyond the pandemic.”
Soumya Das, COO of Inpixon, commented, “Inpixon is an innovator in the Indoor Intelligence space. We believe we were first to market with RF sensor fusion including UWB, Wi-Fi, BLE and cellular detection and positioning, displaying simultaneous RF and video integration, and incorporating artificial intelligence into positioning analytics. We’ve continued that leadership with our integration of indoor mapping and on-device blue dot tracking, and we recently added augmented reality – a technology with the potential to favorably disrupt the market – to our portfolio to support more immersive user experiences. And now with The CXApp, we can offer what we believe is the market’s only enterprise-class SaaS-based mobile app platform for workplace transformation and events management with deep integration of advanced mapping and positioning capabilities. We welcome The CXApp employees, customers and partners to the Inpixon team and look forward to continuing to fulfill our mission to do good with indoor data.”
