SabSe Technologies, the voice-over-internet-protocol service provider that bought competitor Jaxtr three months ago, has acquired voice-activation calling service company Mobivox — continuing a trend of consolidation that has changed the VoIP landscape over the last year. The Mountain View, Calif., company says its new buy will allow it to quickly deploy voice-activation and voice-to-text features to its current users worldwide. Mobivox also allows users to access contacts, initiate conferences and transfer calls all via voice.
Based in Montreal, that company previously raised $11 million from Brightspark Ventures, Flybridge Capital, IDG Ventures China, IDG Ventures Vietnam and Skypoint Capital. SabSe does business as Sabsebolo, and has long had the goal of offering cheaper phone service to people around the world.
