Truecaller, a Stockholm-based startup which has created one of the world’s first collaborative global phone directories, just announced that its users are searching for half a billion names and numbers each month.
The young company, which was founded in 2009, makes it easy for people to get in touch with other people and businesses around the world. Truecaller is built by its community who help keep the dynamic database evolving all the time by sharing information and helping other users worldwide.
Together with users, Truecaller is aiming to reinvent the way people contact each other and get in touch. Truecaller has higher coverage and accuracy than any other online or traditional paper directory, and users are always in in control of who can see their contact information. Whether you are wanting to know who that missed call was with reverse number lookup, or finding your old business colleague through name search, Truecaller provides one place for the world to go to search for reliable contact information.
Truecaller’s co-founder and COO Nami Zarringhalam stated: “Half a billion searches a month is a testimonial to us being on our way to fulfilling our mission of being the world’s largest global phone directory that is intelligent, accurate and easy to use. We are very proud!”
