Wheelings & Dealings: Voxox Acquires PokeTALK

By Michelle Amodio SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Cloud-based communication service provider Voxox announced this morning its acquisition of PokeTALK, a company whose services include the ability to make calls through Web-based and mobile applications, like iOS and Android.

The acquisition means that PokeTALK's more than 600,000 registered users will be invited to transfer their existing service to Voxox, and receive up to 100 minutes of free talk time.

Founded in 2006 as Telcentris, Inc., Voxox’s app provides users with free peer-to-peer voice and video calls; inexpensive VoIP calling to landlines and mobiles; intelligent call routing/screening functionality; texting; multi-protocol instant messaging; social network aggregation; faxing; large file transfer and even real-time IM and text messaging language transcription between approximately 50 languages.

With the acquisition, PokeTALK will continue to be supported until the credit of active and paying users is depleted. PokeTALK users will be invited to download the Voxox app onto their Android, iOS and desktop computer.

"We are thrilled to join Voxox in its mission to provide the most complete communication service to consumers and businesses across the globe," said Sruli Weinreb, president and CEO of E Mobile, PokeTALK's parent company in a statement. "We're confident this will be a smooth transition for our customers, and are excited to provide users with access to Voxox's extensive portfolio of services."

PokeTALK was advised by Source Capital Group, Inc., a boutique investment bank headquartered in Westport, Conn. with expertise in micro-cap growth companies in the energy, utility, and communications markets.

Voxox recently announced that its SIP Trunking solution is compliant with Unified Communications solutions from Avaya. In a release, the Company noted that the service is now compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Aura Communication Manager 6.3 and Avaya Aura Session Manager 6.3.

Voxox is a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect program, an initiative to develop, market and sell third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology.

"Technology Partners, like Voxox, are helping Avaya customers lower costs and increase profitability by providing comprehensive SIP trunking solutions. We are pleased to have Voxox join our developer community," said Eric Rossman, vice president, Developer Relations, Avaya.
