Cyara Achieves More Than 30% YoY Growth, Builds on Leadership in the Customer Experience Assurance Market
Cyara, provider of the award-winning Automated Customer Experience (CX) Assurance Platform, today announced it closed FY22 with more than 30% growth in revenue, a 95% customer retention rate, a Customer Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 70 and 10 billion seconds of synthetic CX testing traffic annually.
In January, Cyara received over $350 million in funding from leading investment firm K1 Investment Management (K1) to support accelerated growth, driving further expansion of the contact testing market. Following the funding, Cyara acquired industry-leading automated chatbot testing company Botium.

It is the only solution on the market offering seamless and comprehensive CX journey assurance from digital to voice agents. Botium enables brands to improve and continuously test the customer chatbot experience across all channels and platforms in all phases of the chatbot development lifecycle.
“In today’s digital economy, testing digital CX is a critical function for companies in every industry, so the release of Cyara Botium was a natural addition to our product arsenal. It has already made a positive impact for many of our customers,” said Alok Kulkarni, CEO and Co-founder of Cyara. “Our goal is to ensure that self-service CX solutions such as chatbots and interactive voice response (IVR) systems are improving customer journeys -- not causing customers additional frustration -- all while increasing productivity and minimizing costs.”

- Support for NICE InContact: Cyara released virtual agents for NICE InContact, enabling customers on that platform to test call routing and data passing functionality
- Greater Flexibility Scheduling Load Tests: Cyara delivered several features over the course of the year making it easier for its customers to schedule and run load tests, including a self-service booking calendar, as well as the ability to run small load tests without a booking at all. This helps customers reduce friction and increase the frequency of load testing to enable continuous testing.

Cyara continues to grow its employee ranks with headcount growing over 70%. The company strengthened its executive bench with several new hires in FY22, including Jeremy Braidish, Chief People Officer (CPO).
