"People still use the phone. Yes, crazy I know. Especially businesses. A company calledAircall says its the “easiest way for businesses to handle phone calls.” They claim 500 customers and $35,000 a month in revenue. Calls can be routed to a group of people or a group of numbers can be routed to one person. It integrates with services like Slack and other software you’d expect. You can call them at 415-712-0785 if you want. To us, it sounds like Grand Central but that got acquired by Google eons ago and was turned into Google Voice. There’s a shot for these folks."

Aircall, a company that presented at TechCrunch Disrupt today in San Francisco, wants to remove the complications around taking calls from customers.France-based Aircall is targeting companies that require a customer service operation. But rather than a traditional approach of creating a dedicated customer support office — something that takes time, is a significant cost and not particularly optimized — the service uses smartphones and Internet telephony trickery to make things easier and instant — not to mention cheaper.Instead of a physical customer support office with phone operatives, Aircall customers can use the company’s app to run a virtual customer support team. Customer support agents just need the company’s app — available on web and launching for iOS this week — which routes calls through."
