Founded in 1998, Kirkland, WA-based Who's Calling Inc. provides cross-channel marketing analytics technology and lead identification services. The service provider can track advertising performance and identify every lead generated across multiple channels including search engine keywords, telephone calls and closed transactions.

Who's Calling serves more than 7,000 clients in industries including automotive, financial services, media, travel and others.

Next month's acquisition follows an eight-year growth trajectory for Who's Calling, positioning the company as the leading provider in the evolving cross-channel marketing analytics category. Who's Calling's has 300 employees across North America and Europe.
