Swedish Startup TrueCaller is Building the World's Largest Phone Number Directory
STOCKHOLM, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Is it possible to gather all the world's phone numbers into one source? TrueCaller believes they have the formula in creating the world's largest phone number directory that covers a global scale. TrueCaller is currently the most used number lookup service in India.
In a fast growing mobile market like India, where there is no public directory and where several million new numbers are added each month, it is close to impossible for conventional number directories to be up to date. In addition to the volume, prepaid subscriptions with no name registration makes the situation only more complicated and harder.
Number lookup directories are in general very limited or even non-existing as soon as you step out of Scandinavia. Nami Zarringhalam, co-founder and CEO for TrueCaller explains; "We Swedes are extremely spoiled with public information and the ease of accessing information. But as soon as you take a step out and look at other countries like India or the UK, the number lookup services are severely limited or non-existing. In some other countries, there are options but only behind a pay wall, so not freely accessible like TrueCaller".
TrueCaller - much thanks to its number lookup database enhanced by its regional partners as well as its users - provides the highest quality search results among such services.
"Our vision is to create the world's largest and most accurate phone book. We have seen a huge demand for this kind of service and we dare to say that we are pioneering in the space with our global scale", says Alan Mamedi, co-founder and COO at TrueCaller.
True Software Scandinavia AB was founded in July 2009, Stockholm, Sweden, and launched the service TrueCaller shortly thereafter. TrueCaller has grown rapidly and today serves over 3.7 million users in countries from all around the world and performs over 50 million number searches per month. TrueCaller's mission is to provide the most complete number lookup service in the world with global coverage. TrueCaller is available for, iOS, Android, Symbian, BlackBerry & Windows Phone (http://www.truecaller.com/download)
