Vonage pushed VoIP into the mainstream and has been a pioneer in the business communications industry since. True to its roots as a technology disruptor, Vonage has embraced technology to transform how companies communicate to create better business outcomes.
Developed back in early 2000, the service was first introduced to US consumers in partnership with Circuit City in 2004. Vonage was created by Jeff Pulver, an internet pioneer and investor, who previously created one of the first ever Voice over internet applications, known as Free World Dialup.
Vonage has grown extensively since its humble beginnings, and the provider went public in 2006. Ever since, Vonage has been innovating their platform, and expanded into the Business VoIP market by acquiring Vocalocity in 2013. Vonage grew their business service into a powerful cloud-first platform that enables users to collaborate virtually anywhere, any way.
Vonage has also expanded their platform beyond business phone solutions. By acquiring Nexmo back in 2016, Vonage brought together their robust unified communications solution with the agility of embedded, contextual communications APIs. This powerful combination enables businesses to collaborate more productively and engage their customers more effectively across messaging, chat, social media, video and voice.More recently, Vonage has also partnered with Amazon to include their Chime solution in their Vonage Business Cloud platforms.
