Callision Raises $100k Second Angel Funding

Callision a NYC-based start up that offers click to call widgets for business websites, has raised a 100k second round of angel funding.

Investors remained undisclosed.

The company intends to use the new capital to expand the distribution of its browser-based click to call widget.

Founded in 2011 and led by CEO Jay Jideliov and CFO Alex Kleyner, Callision aims to help businesses increase the level of interactions with consumers in their own target markets through a call button on their websites. It allows a consumer to be instantly connected to the business via phone and quickly receive sales support, customer service, or technical support. An interactive control panel makes it easy for clients to configure multiple call buttons and track their usage, enabling further analysis of each button’s performance.
The company, which currently employs seven people, is a member of Startup America Partnership and Microsoft BizSpark.

  • This crossed my radar and I looked this company up because I wanted to know exactly how this works since the article isn’t very detailed. All the end consumer needs is a microphone. The click on a button on a company’s website when they want to talk to customer service or support and they’re connected to a telephone agent according to Callision’s website. Software behind the scenes and internet telephony do all the heavy lifting. It’s a great idea, especially in the world of smart phones where people are already surfing sites and they have a mic right there in their hand. Now when they have a question, they’re not searching for a phone number or leaving your site in frustration. You have to love that! I can’t wait to see this technology hit the market and see it in action. A former employer, a business to consumer performance auto parts retailer, is going to be very interested in this.
