YouMail's Mobile Voicemail Hits One Million Registered UsersPopular Mobile Apps Drive Adoption of Feature-Rich Digital Secretary (March 25, 2010)
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/10 -- YouMail Inc. (www.youmail.com), provider of cutting-edge "digital secretary" services for managing mobile voicemail, today announced its customer base has passed two key milestones reflecting the rapid growth of the company: one million registered YouMail users and over 300 million calls handled to date.
These impressive benchmarks were driven largely by broad adoption of YouMail's smart phone applications during the past year. YouMail has free applications available on the iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry platforms, as well as a paid application available for the Palm Pre and Pixi platforms. YouMail has consistently been listed as the top "Productivity" download on BlackBerry AppWorld
"YouMail users are largely service professionals, engaged with customers or in meetings all day, who can't afford to miss critical, time-sensitive calls," said Alex Quilici, YouMail's CEO. "They love having a 'digital secretary' to greet callers by name or personal message, route important calls as text or email messages, and take dictation from callers. YouMail increases their productivity and responsiveness, and gives their clients more personalized service."
YouMail's growth has also been driven through regional wireless and VOIP carriers who have recognized how YouMail vastly improves the functionality and ease of use of their traditional voicemail systems. Carriers such as IMMIX Wireless in Pennsylvania, Cellular One in East Central Illinois, Blue Wireless in New York, iSmart Mobile in Montana, VoicePulse in New Jersey, and Windy City Cellular in Adak, Alaska, have set YouMail as their standard voicemail service or are providing it as a featured option to their customers.
YouMail is available to post-paid mobile users in the US on all major carriers including AT&T Wireless, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile. YouMail can also be used to unify a user's mobile voicemail with their voice messages from VOIP service providers such as Google Voice, MagicJack, OOMA, and Vonage.
YouMail turns mobile phone voicemail into a "digital secretary" for handling unanswered calls. With personalized greetings, delivery through text or e-mail, voicemail filtering, and voice-to-text transcription, YouMail saves time, increases productivity, and improves reliability of message handling. YouMail gives users flexible control to retrieve and manage voicemail through mobile applications for iPhone, Blackberry, Android, and Palm smart phones, through a web browser, via e-mail or by calling in from any phone. YouMail provides an ad-supported free service, as well as a set of premium services, including voice-to-text transcription. YouMail is headquartered in Aliso Viejo, California, and backed by Vantage Point Venture Partners and Tech Coast Angels.
