At our Client they are on a mission to modernize voice with trust, identity, and intelligence. They are protecting everyday people from spam and fraud calls, connecting businesses with their customers, and helping carriers secure their networks for all. In 2015, the Company founder saw the increasing need for innovation in the voice channel and began building the first caller ID and spam blocking apps for mobile while at Whitepages. In early 2016, the Company spun out of Whitepages and brought its technology to market through Samsung Smart Call, the first-ever network-based spam solution with AT&T, and the our Client's consumer app. Three years later in 2019, they brought our Client connect to market, a B2B branded call service that enables enterprise companies to connect to the consumers they are trying to reach. The combination of Protect, Connect, and the app has resulted in the world's largest Voice Performance Platform with over 200M monthly active users.
