The Dubber Corp Ltd (ASX: DUB) share price is on the backfoot this afternoon. The comes after the company announced a new partnership agreement.

During mid-afternoon trade, the cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) company’s shares are down 5.6% to $3.20.

What did Dubber announce?

Investors appear unfazed by the company’s latest win, sending the Dubber share price lower.

According to its release, Dubber has been selected by BT as the default recording and conversational intelligence provider.

Based in the United Kingdom, BT (formerly British Telecom) is one of the world’s leading providers of global communications services and solutions. The company caters to customers in 180 countries.

The multi-year partnership will see BT deliver unified call recording (UCR) to a number of large organisations across the globe. Both Dubber and BT have worked together on implementing UCR services targeting major financial institutions.

While the deal opens a new revenue stream for Dubber, additional revenues will depend on the uptake from BT customers.

However, the deal has done little to help the Dubber share price today.

Dubber CEO Steve McGovern commented:

The newly released managed service offerings will enable BT to continue to demonstrate its innovation leadership. Multinational organisations can now depend on BT for the high-performing secure connections it is known for, but now also for delivering outstanding value from the content inside every conversation on BT services.

For Dubber it marks another milestone in our journey to Dub the world’s leading networks, AI-enabling every endpoint, and creating high-value technology and distribution partnerships based on our Foundation model.
