Infratel is set to build telephony solution for channel & cloud providers serving the SOHO market. This solution is meant to help small businesses in North America and Europe that have a website but don't have a basic telephony presence.
This lack of telephony tools results in significant business losses as they are unable to freely interact with customers.
To this end, the company has secured $3M in Series A funding from Prostor Capital and Runa Capital. These funds will be used to strengthen the company's presence globally in addition to build out Infratel's cloud telephony platform for small business.
"Our goal in closing this investment round with Prostor and Runa is to bring intuitive, easy to use communications solutions to help these small businesses grow and prosper," said Bryan Goode, CEO of Infratel.
Runa Capital international venture capital firm is focused on investing in cloud computing, internet-services and virtualization software companies such as NGINX, Ecwid, and Jelastic.
"The unique technology platform and business model make Infratel a significant acquisition for our portfolio," said Serguei Beloussov, senior founding partner of Runa Capital venture fund. "Our long-term relationship, hosting service providers network, and technical expertise can help Infratel in the cloud telephony market to provide unique solutions to millions of small businesses around the world."
Prostor is a global investment firm with deep knowledge of the telephony and service provider industry.
"Infratel's innovative, cost effective offerings together with its high technology platform will bring Infratel's customers to the next level of communication with their clients," said Alexey Solovyoy, managing director of Prostor Capital.
Infratel makes solutions that connect small business with customers. The company was recently in news for introducing ClickConnect for websites enabling small businesses to convert more visitors into customers.
