YouMail Achieves 2 Million U.S. User MilestoneCompany Doubles YouMail Adopters in Just Over One Year (July 26, 2011)
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/26/11 -- YouMail, Inc. (www.youmail.com), a leading provider of cloud-based communications apps and services for smartphones, has reached the key milestone of 2 million registered users in the United States. The 2 million mark comes only weeks after YouMail announced that the company has now answered more than 1 billion phone calls for users, including 500 million since September 2010.
The company, whose service is currently only available in the United States, has steadily grown its user base since launching its initial Visual Voicemail Plus smartphone application in 2009.
"What really makes this milestone special is how much of our growth is organic and how active our users are," said YouMail CEO Alex Quilici. "The increasing user base is primarily from satisfied YouMail users bringing on their friends, as well as users exposing others to YouMail by sharing voicemails or using personalized greetings. And the fact that our 2 million users have generated over 1 billion calls shows how much call activity is going through our service."
Along with the user and service milestones, YouMail recently disclosed it has achieved another key goal in its growth trajectory by receiving new funding that brings its overall total of equity and debt financing since 2007 to $12.5 million. Participating in the latest funding were VantagePoint Capital Partners, Siemer Ventures and the Tech Coast Angels. YouMail will use the latest financing to roll out a network of mobile applications and services, expand the platform and accelerate growth of Visual Voicemail Plus, its flagship service.
The YouMail platform supports applications for smartphones such as iPhone, BlackBerry and Google Android devices, plus third-party applications developed for other mobile operating systems, such as Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 6.5 and WebOS, as well as for the iPhone and Android platforms.
