Voxox a cloud based communication service providing VoIP, messaging, fax, voicemail and media sharing for consumers and businesses have announced their offerings for the African market.
In some quarters, Voxox has been termed as a rival to Skype and it is yet to be seen what kind of competition it will give the globally renowned VoIP service.
This might give jitters to some African states that have seen Skype as a threat to the telecom industry. Gambia in April gave mixed signals about Skype services in the country and quickly beat a retreat on its decision to block the service.
The company has partnered with Teleriliance Communication and Teleficient Communications to offer these services to West Africa countries including, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Gambia and Liberia.
“We are expanding the global presence of our award-winning VoIP and unified communications apps through long-term partnerships with innovative network operators,” said Bryan Hertz, co-founder and CEO of Voxox.
“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.”
“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.”
