Voxox Expands Service to Africa

By SIP Trunking Report Contributing Writer

Voxox, a San Diego-based mobile cloud communication service, partnered with Telereliance Communications and Teleficient Communications to provide VoIP, messaging, fax, voicemail and media sharing for consumers and businesses in Western Africa. The companies will roll out the service in Ghana, Sierra Leone, Gambia and Liberia.

Self-described as “Skype on steroids,” Voxox’s flagship app provides free peer-to-peer voice and video calls, inexpensive VoIP calling to landlines and mobiles, call routing/screening functionality, texting, multi-protocol instant messaging, social network aggregation, faxing, large file transfer and real-time IM and text messaging language transcription between approximately 50 languages. The hosted cloud communication service powered by Voxox will be co-branded as ChatMore in Ghana and AwiKoneKt in the other countries.

"Together with Telereliance and Teleficient, we will embark on tapping into the fastest growing market segment in telecommunication by serving the citizens of Ghana, Sierra Leone, Gambia and Liberia with the most advanced and affordable unified communications solution in the world, Voxox,” said Bryan Hertz, co-founder and CEO of Voxox.

The companies said revenue generated from this partnership will be shared. Telereliance and Teleficient will also market Voxox’s Beyond Rich Communication services to other mobile network operators in the region to expand its presence and adoption in Africa.

"We are very excited to begin offering the Voxox service in Ghana under our ChatMore brand name," remarked Renee French-Onumah, president and CEO of Telereliance. "The advanced services and features that are enabled by the Voxox solution will fundamentally transform personal and business communications in Western Africa."

"The way people communicate in Sierra Leone will change dramatically with the availability of our new and enhanced AwiKoneKt service powered by Voxox," remarked Al Turay, founder and president of Teleficient Communications. "We are really excited to offer the citizens and businesses of Sierra Leone the most advanced unified communications solution in the world."

ChatMore and AwiKoneKt will be available on the App Store soon.
