75 Million People Have Now Used YouMailOne-Third of US Population Has Interacted With Service, Demonstrating Continued Shift in Telecommunications Services From Carriers to the Cloud (June 07, 2012)
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/07/12 -- YouMail, a leading provider of cloud-based enhanced telecommunication services, today announced that 75 million unique users have now interacted with the YouMail service at least once -- more than one-third of the U.S. adult population (206.8 million) and about a quarter of the country's total population (313.5 million).
These users have participated in numerous unique aspects of the YouMail experience, including:
- Hearing a "smart greeting" that uniquely greets them by name when they call, or hearing one of nearly 25 million "personal greetings" that were created just for them.
- Hearing "This number is out of service," (or another similar greeting) and then not being able to leave a message. YouMail has ditched nearly 10 million callers so far.
- Getting a voicemail receipt, which provides a caller with a copy of the message they left (that they can play with a single-click), a brief personalized message, and a look at how their caller ID appeared, which they can then edit and improve. YouMail has already sent over 10 million receipts, which lets callers know their voicemail hasn't just gone into a black hole, a feature that has proved popular with both those leaving and receiving messages.
- Seeing and/or playing a voicemail or missed call that has been shared with them through Twitter, Facebook, or even by e-mail or text message.
"It's staggering to think one-third of all the adults in the United States have now interacted with our service," said YouMail CEO Alex Quilici. "This not only reflects the growth of YouMail itself, and our nearly 3 million registered users, but also of cloud-based voice services in general."
YouMail began developing mobile communication applications in 2009, and has now evolved into a total cloud and mobile management platform, with apps available on every major mobile OS.
