Over 150 content service providers currently use Plume’s cloud-based Consumer Experience Management (CEM) platform , and the company says it has has added over 100 new independent content sevice provider customers in 2020, across North America, Europe, and Japan.

According to Plume, over 25 million OpenSync-integrated access points have been deployed to date.
