COMAPI (the trading name for Dynmark), a fast-growing business focused on the omni-channel messaging and cloud communication market, has been acquired for a cash consideration of £11 million.
Headquartered in Cheltenham with approximately 30 employees, COMAPI has built a scalable software platform that allows businesses to communicate with their consumers across multiple conversational messaging channels including the growing market for live chat.

COMAPI is a successful brand with strong growth and revenues within the CPaaS market and, with dotdigital’s full support, will continue to work directly with its customers, which include Gap, eBay, TSB, British Airways, Carphone Warehouse and Collect Plus. dotmailer and COMAPI already have numerous shared clients which include Superdry, Hayes Recruitment, Daisy Group and betting giant Ladbrokes.
