Cloud Telephony startup Exotel has silently launched a new product called Dialmonk. The launch of this new product comes at the time when the market speculations suggests that team behind Exotel is going through a rough patch.
Dialmonk is an app that allows you to sync your mobile phone and computer. You can save more than 10 sec every time you make a phone call by using dialmonk. No more copying numbers from the browser, no more memorizing numbers you want to call. All you need to do is click and the call goes out from your mobile phone.
On top of that the app gives you real-time insights on your calls. Know exactly how much time you spent on your calls, the number of calls you missed, the callbacks you have lined up and a lot more, all presented to you in an easy to interpret and visual format.
Here’s a quick video explaining the concept:
Dialmonk seems like an interesting little project, albiet a useful one, as of now. Some possible options can be integrating this with Exotel’s cloud telephony and move towards a SaaS model. Let’s see how the Exotel team plans to take this forward.
The Bangalore based startup has been in the spotlight for the last two months as one of it’s co-founder, Vijay Sharma, quit recently and there have been some rumors about Exotel looking for an exit.
In a post on Quora last month Vijay Sharma had mentioned about Exotel working on a new product but kept other details un-said. Vijay said, “I am sharing office with Exotel, who is doing well and are coming out with some new products they’ll surely talk about.”
The startup had raised series A funding of Rs 2.5 crore ($0.5 million) from Mumbai Angels and Blume Ventures in 2012 and since then it has not been able to pick up any further funding.
Exotel was launched in 2011 and currently has about 600 paying customers across India. It has grown from INR 12 lakh in the first financial year, to about INR 5 Cr. for the last financial year.
