Monday 27 March 2017 | 12:32 CET | Author: Maarten van Vliet | Background
The Dutch company RingCredible launched a few years ago a cheap alternative for international calls. A year after its launch, the app had passed 1 million downloads, and thanks to a number of strategic partnerships, had positioned itself as a global leader on the VoIP market, with quality and user-friendliness as its USP. Since then RingCredible has changed name to Talk360 and is targeting the African market. Africa offers a great many opportunities and possibilities, CEO and founder Hans Osnabrugge told Telecompaper in an interview.
