Little know facts about Ozonetel

In this startup ecosystem, the people with the money generally can influence a narrative. So sometimes, we have to use our own publishing space to talk about ourselves :)
So this post is about that. It just reinforces some lesser known but important facts about Ozonetel.

Fact 1: Ozonetel is the company which first introduced cloud telephony to India. This fact is easily provable, thanks to the Internet web archive :)

Fact 2: First to cross a billion calls in cloud telephony in India

Fact 3: One of the very few companies in India which has an open API. Though documentation can be improved a lot, at least the API is open to the public. You can sign up today at http://kookoo.ozonetel.com and start building

Fact 4: Though we bootstrapped to startup, over the course of our journey, we have raised more than a million dollars of angel money. Mainly from families, friends and customers.

Fact 5: One of the few companies which have crossed $4 million in ARR with just Indian customers. Almost all our customers are Indian. This should change this year as we are looking at going international.

Fact 6: Most people dont know all the offerings we have. Many people don know that KooKoo belongs to Ozonetel :). Those who work on KooKoo dont know Cloudagent, the cloud call center belongs to us. Even few know that we have a basic cloud call center called as CA Lite for startups :)

Fact 7: The biggest IVR platform in India with more than 40 million subscribers runs on KooKoo,Ozonetel.

Fact 8: Cloudagent is not just for voice processes. We support even email and chat agents.

Will update this post with more facts when I remember them :)

Integrating Arborjs with Angular to create a live calls dashboard

Arborjs  is a cool graph visualization library. Angular  is one of the best JavaScript frameworks and we have been using Angular in a lot of our front end development. When you handle millions of calls, proper visualization becomes very important. Without proper visualization, you can get lost in the mountains of data. So we spend a lot of time to come up with good visualizations to represent the data. Since we loved the cool way in which Arbor represented graph data, we could not wait to hook it up with Angular. Because of Angular's two way data binding, when you hook up Angularjs with Arbor.js you can get a dynamically updated visualization of graph data with cool animations. To give back to the community, we have put up the code online at Github . Basically we have created an Angularjs directive for Arborjs. Please feel free to fork the code and add extensions and use it for your own visualizations. The code is self explanatory with comments inline. Best way to get s

Mashing up Freshdesk with KooKoo for customer support ticket management

Sorry for the delay in writing a blog post. I have been caught up in too many things since last month(we are growing, so its all good :)) Anyway, this week I thought I will look at how we can use the latest rockstar startup from India, Freshdesk . Freshdesk, as most of you know is one of the best "Social Helpdesk" systems out there. I am sure most of you are already using Freshdesk to support your customers. In this blogpost I will explain how you can add telephony to the mixture. In particular I will show some code which you can use to : Welcome the caller by name Ask him to enter his ticket id Play out the ticket status Connect the caller to the correct agent handling the ticket. Luckily for us, Freshdesk has a very well defined API and it was a pleasure to work with it. The engineers were also very supportive and answered all my queries quickly. So lets get into the code directly. 1. First we need to get the caller information. For this we need to a
