No terms of the deal were disclosed, but it is understood that the new firm, 30 percent owned by Comverse, will trade under the e-go brand.
Although many companies offer IP-based unified messaging, e-go provides the user with full interoperability with other users worldwide, regardless of their ISP or telecoms network operator.
"Through its cutting-edge exploitation of IP technology, e-go systems is well-positioned to benefit from the expected growth in the ASP-based enterprise unified messaging market," said Kobi Alexander, chairman, president and chief executive, of Comverse Technology.
"We have many synergies with the services which Telemesser provides, and the newly merged company will be better placed to exploit our position as leaders in the IP-based unified messaging arena," said Roberts.
Roberts will continue as chief executive, while Atzmon Lifshitz, the former chief of Telemesser will become chief operating officer.
Despite the merger there will be no redundancies, say the two companies. In fact, because of their rapid growth they expect to be hiring more staff in the near future.
Telemesser, a partnership between Comverse and the Israeli media group Yedioth Aharonoth, specializes in telecoms value-added systems and services. They include not only messaging but also interactive voice response (IVR), intelligent call agents, and mobile content management systems.
