YouMail just announced that it has answered more than 1 billion phone calls for its users, of which, 500 million has been handled since September 2010. YouMail is compatible with Android, iPhone, and BlackBerry as well third-party apps that bring the company’s Visual Voicemail Plus service to Windows Phone 7, Windows Mobile 6.5, and WebOS.
“I’m proud to say this call-volume milestone means that our Visual Voicemail Plus service has answered the phone on behalf of our users more than a billion times,” said YouMail CEO Alex Quilici. “And it’s all driven by consumer demand for feature-rich voicemail on their smartphones from a provider that treats callers well, and lets users have complete control over their voicemail.”
YouMail will continue to launch additional applications, expand the platform, and accelerate growth of Visual Voicemail Plus thanks to some additional funding by VantagePoint Capital Partners, Siemer Ventures, and Tech Coast Angels. Total equity and debt financing since 2007 is now at $12.5 million.
“This funding will help us leverage our platform and our growing user base to rapidly deploy additional applications and grow significant market share in the smartphone communications app market,” Quilici said.
