Notwithstanding these difficulties, AudioCodes continued to make a significant contribution to its overall revenue in both the fourth quarter and the whole year—nearly 90%—in the enterprise market. The expansion of its Microsoft-related operations, particularly in Teams, which saw a 10% quarterly increase and a 13% yearly climb, was especially remarkable.

Moreover, AudioCodes identified customer experience (CX) and conversational AI (CAI) operations as significant growth pillars.

CX growth accelerated to over 40% year-over-year in the fourth quarter and reached 19% for the full year. Conversational AI bookings surged by over 50% for both the quarter and the full year. Notably, Voca CIC, its Azure-native CCaaS solution for the Teams ecosystem, secured two substantial opportunities in North America, driving growth in this segment.

Furthermore, the company’s Meeting Insights, an enterprise-grade solution for the meeting space, also witnessed solid growth. Looking ahead, AudioCodes is optimistic about its prospects, particularly in the UCaaS, CX, and Conversational AI markets.

With increased focus and investments in these areas, supported by strong Live bookings, especially in Teams, Live CX, and Voca CIC, the company believes it is on track to achieve revenue growth and improved profitability in 2024.
