Call Trunk’s goal is to make it easier for businesses to record and store important phone calls in the cloud. Many times, people may be more forthcoming with details or promises on a phone call rather than through e-mail. All Call Trunk recordings can be accessed online via the browser or through its mobile apps. The audio can notably be stored and accessed using Dropbox, Evernote, Box and SugarCRM apps.
The company debuted its service last year in the U.K. but now is ramping up operations in the U.S. with the new Skype recording for U.S. users. Its Dropbox integration is new and works globally.
“In the past, only large organizations could afford sophisticated call recording technology,” co-founder and CEO Paul Murphy said in a statement. “Today, the launch of our Dropbox integration and U.S. Skype service are two more steps towards creating a more accessible and disruptive technology that will make the spoken word as tangible as written words.”
Pricing for the service varies in the U.S., depending on how much recording time you need. On the high end, up to 5,000 minutes of recording a month runs $80 while its smallest package is $5 for 50 minutes a month. The company said its most popular plan is for 2,500 minutes a month for $50.
London-based Call Trunk is self-funded currently. Outside of London, the company has offices in Dallas and Montreal. The company’s exec team is led Murphy, COO Tim Tokarsky, co-founder and VP of operations Angela Clarke, co-founder and chief scientist Darcy Brockbank and VP of marketing Richard Newton.
