I’m very proud to announce that Aircall just raised a seed round of $800k to make phone support insanely easy for all SMBs. We’re launching!
Startups and SMBs in need of an easy solution to speak with their customers
We started Aircall back in June 2014 inside eFounders startup studio. The project emerged from the experience of Fotolia’s team. At the time, they were struggling with multiple Skype numbers in many countries and couldn’t find an easy and scalable way to manage phone support. That’s what triggered the launch of Aircall, with the vision to make phone support as easy to manage as any other business workflow: online, anywhere, and collaborative.
Aircall crackerjacks phone support in one single software and raises funds to grow internationally
Aircall runs on one ambition: making phone support as easy to manage as email support. For 11 months, the team has been developing its core features and ensuring product stability – a strong challenge since the technologies used are new and complex. The team tested its product with hundreds of beta users in 25 countries. We are very grateful for all the feedback that our users provided.
Aircall now offers instant phone numbers in over 30 countries, provides a collaborative phone app to let teams share and follow-up on calls, and connects to any CRM or customer support tool. Plans start at $29 per month, making it available for any business with big ambitions.
We just reached the 300,000 calls mark! And raised our seed round of $800,000. Providing a stable product was the “trigger for growth” for us: the funds will be used to finalize our mobile app and start marketing efforts to develop in areas where the product already shows traction: the US, UK, Spain, Germany, France, and Australia.
Newfund and private investors, including Michel Meyer, Oleg Tscheltzoff and Theo Martin, as well as the startup studio eFounders, took part in the seed round. Our partners support our greater ambition to change the way voice-based communications are handled at the enterprise level.
Thank you for participating in this adventure!
