ClearSlide’s Next Phase of Growth: Becoming a Member of the Corel Family

Today marks the next big step for ClearSlide. When Al and I co-founded ClearSlide in 2009, we were passionate about helping sales teams create truly amazing experiences with their customers. The goal was to make it easy for sales and marketing teams to find the best content, effectively communicate across virtually any touchpoint, and get insights into exactly how customers engage.

I want to thank you for your commitment to ClearSlide these last 8 years. With your help, we’ve become the Sales Engagement Platform leader with more than 2,000 customers, generating over 1 billion minutes of engagement, and a great set of partners using our APIs. Both Aragon Research and Forrester recognize ClearSlide as a leader in a market growing to $5 billion. The ClearSlide product has never been stronger – our recent Orion and Vega releases give customers even more reasons to use ClearSlide every day.

I am pleased to announce we have joined Corel Corporation to accelerate our vision to make ClearSlide the global standard for sales engagement. This partnership is fantastic for ClearSlide customers. As a result of this acquisition, you’ll see increased investment and focus on product innovation and customer success.

With more than 32 years of technical leadership, Corel has a robust network of partners that spans the globe. Like ClearSlide, Corel puts customers in the center of everything it does, and we share a mission to help people achieve new levels of creativity, productivity, and success. We are excited to use Corel’s reach and scale to take ClearSlide to new markets and empower more customers around the world.

I am incredibly proud of everything our team has achieved and I look forward to working with you during our next phase of growth as part of the Corel family. If you have any questions or want to talk about how we can help your company create amazing customer experiences, reach out to me at
