Chaitanya C, the Principal Architect at Ozonetel, told Medianama that the acquired customers from VoiceGain have been assigned to its business phone solution BizPhone and its contact centre solution Cloud Agent, depending upon the nature of service required by the customer and around 95% of the customers have been assigned to BizPhone.

With this development, Resolvity will be winding down its operations in India, barely a year after entering the country. The company had entered India in February 2012 and had launched a cloud telephony solution for Indian small and medium enterprises called VoiceGain. The company had said that this solution will allow businesses to store, manage and track telephone sales enquiries and leads.
Chaitanya said that Resolvity has now shifted its interest from the Indian market and plans to focus on other markets outside of India. He also mentioned that Resolvity employees have been absorbed into Ozonetel and the Resolvity office is expected to be shut down by the end of next month.
Ozonetel currently offers a cloud telephony platform called Kookoo which allows developers and businesses to build voice apps for web applications by integrating its API. The company had tied up with doorstep cash payment network Gharpay to offer offline payments through IVR (Interactive Voice Response) in December 2011 and a voice-based Facebook update service called Voice Buzz in February 2011. Ozonetel claims to have over 250 paying customers and over 3,000 registered developers who are using the platform to build voice apps.
