Cloud Telephony Pioneer CallFire Surpasses 50,000 User Milestone, Sets Sights on Reshaping Telecom Space | Open Web Magazine [cached]

"As voice API, voice broadcast and text messaging technology advances and cloud computing becomes increasingly sophisticated, more and more business - across all core market sectors -- are discovering why cloud telephony is the future," said Dinesh Ravishanker, CEO and co-founder, CallFire. "We've added a significant number of new customers in recent months alone, including premier multinational brands, and we're now helping these companies to achieve their communications goals with unprecedented cost-efficiency."

Founded in 2007 by Ravishanker and a small group of talented computer science graduates from the University of California, Irvine, the University of Southern California and Harvard University, CallFire has achieved just under $10 million in sales, is profitable and has built that substantial user base-all without venture funding.
"While our competitors have been chasing telecom rates to zero, we have kept our focus on delivering value in both our software and our services, which supports superior margins while providing customizable solutions via our software and API suite," he said.
Company founders, led by Ravishanker, made the strategic choice early on to bypass venture capital. "Choosing to bootstrap over raising venture capital has forced us to build a profitable business," he said.
