Portfolio Strength & Strong Partner Base to Fend Off Competition
Zoom is one of the leading names in the unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) space, which is expected to witness a healthy CAGR of 27.8% during 2021-2026, per Mordor Intelligence report.
Portfolio expansion and strength in partner base are likely to have been the key catalysts driving Zoom on the growth trajectory in the second quarter of fiscal 2022. Its solutions combine video, audio, phone, screen sharing and chat functionalities and make remote-working and collaboration easy.
Additionally, the company’s strong partner base that includes the likes of Atlassian TEAM, ServiceNow and Dropbox DBX is expected to have benefited the company in winning enterprise customers in the fiscal second quarter.
However, this Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) company continues to face significant competition from the likes of Cisco CSCO, Microsoft and Google Meet. This might have resulted in loss of small and medium-sized business customers, which is likely to have hurt top-line growth.
