Kasookoo Communications announces a successful seed raise worth $500,000, led by angel investor South Southeast Angels Network (a member of the African Business Angels Network (ABAN)) and Launch Africa Ventures a Pan-African VC fund.
The company plans to apply the funds to develop its product offering, expand its Customer Service and build Brand Awareness in its quest to become a market leader in the fast-paced burgeoning world of Unified Communications, which is gripping the world and Africa.
The future of communications for businesses is a seamless unified interface that creates an all-immersive and interactive experience for the customer; where they are able to connect with businesses, through any channel they prefer without a break in flow of conversation and context.
Kasookoo Communications offers a cloud-based omnichannel contact centre solution and has entered into the space to give enterprises or smaller businesses the much-needed support for superior multi-channel engagement, boosting customer experience, raising overall customer satisfaction levels and eliminating expenditure outlays required to roll out traditional infrastructure.
African businesses are grappling with the limitations of GSM telephony which was not designed to provide the functionality of digital business communications. Today’s businesses are contending with better-informed clientele who are demanding to be serviced efficiently and professionally via various platforms of their choice.
According to co-founder and group CEO, Ahmer Javaid, “African businesses can truly realise their potential through the extensible and cutting-edge cloud services provided in one convenient interface. Kasookoo offers businesses a competitive advantage by providing a platform which enables them to resolve customer complaints faster and generate more leads using its cutting-edge features”.
