Telcentris, Creator of Voxox, Undergoes Dramatic Growth with Local and Global Expansion
April 25, 2013
Company nearly doubles headcount in a single quarter and continues to seek new talent through 2013
SAN DIEGO – April 25, 2013 – Telcentris Inc., a leader in cloud communications and creator of VoxOx, VoxOx In Business and VoxOx For Operators, today announced that the company has expanded its operations in San Diego, as well as internationally. Telcentris has recently experienced dramatic growth after generating two and a half times its revenues in 2012 as compared to 2011 and receiving $5.3 million in institutional funding. In the first quarter of this year, the company has nearly doubled its staff since December 2012, and is expected to continue its expansion in the coming months. Telcentris is currently seeking new talent in IT, customer support, software development, core network engineering, channel sales and more.
"As the demand for our cutting-edge cloud telephony and rich communication solutions for consumers, businesses and wholesale customers rises, our need to grow a world- class team intensifies," said Bryan Hertz, CEO of Telcentris. "The team we have assembled so far possesses passion, talent and drive, and we are looking to add more exceptional talent to our group, which will contribute to the growth of the local San Diego economy."
In December 2012, Telcentris had just over 40 employees. Since then, the company has grown to 70+ employees – a 75 percent increase in a matter of months. Additions were made to the technical staff, sales force and executive team, as well as customer care, marketing, and accounting departments. Twenty-two of these positions were filled in San Diego, one nationally, and five worldwide in Africa, India, Latin America, South Asia and the Middle East. The company is aggressively recruiting to fill even more positions in the near-term and planning for a larger expansion by the end of the year.
A combination of factors contributed to this rapid growth. In January 2013, Telcentris announced that the company secured $5.3 million in funding with the assistance of investment advisory firm, Pepperwood Partners, and private equity fund, SBD Global Fund. Additionally, the company's revenues for 2012 showed nearly a 150 percent increase over 2011, with a similar increase in monthly revenues from January 2012 to January 2013. The company also observed a 65 percent increase in enterprise customers between January 2012 and January 2013.
Telcentris develops leading-edge cloud communications products and services for consumers, businesses and operators. The company's flagship product is VoxOx, an application that unifies today's key communications channels – voice, video, text, fax, and more. VoxOx delivers carrier-grade VoIP, rich messaging, social network integration, intelligent call routing, language translation, voicemail transcription, fax, personal assistant, and other disruptive cloud services.
Telcentris also has a business services solution suite, VoxOx In Business, which provides hosted virtual PBX phone systems and SIP trunking for small and mid-sized businesses looking to upgrade to more affordable, next generation phone systems. Other solutions featured in the business services suite include a hosted contact center, wholesale SMS and origination and termination services.
Recently, the company launched VoxOx For Operators – a new program that empowers global operators to neutralize the OTT threat and monetize services that go beyond rich communications. Through a white label or revenue share partnership, VoxOx enables operators to deliver RCS-compliant and advanced cloud-based communications services Over the Top (OTT) to mobile phones, tablets, personal computers, and IP telephones worldwide. All Telcentris products and services are backed by its award-winning unified communications service delivery platform and robust network infrastructure.
"Our growth is demonstrative of the global momentum and influence of the IP-based cloud communications market, and we're proud to be in San Diego, an increasingly important technology hub, always on the forefront of innovation," said Hertz.
