The company is headquartered in London, UK, and has offices in multiple countries around the world including Canada, France, Germany, India, The Netherlands, United States and Switzerland.

Publicly acknowledged customers include BP, Hearst, the Met Office, Skyscanner, Ströer and Time Inc. Cloudreach also owns two software systems developed in-house: Sceptre, an infrastructure automation suite for AWS; and Connect, an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS).
