Mumbai: Callify.ai, a smart calling platform that focuses on working professionals, has raised $560,000 (Rs 4.11 crore at current exchange rates) in a seed funding round.
Angel investment firm Malpani Ventures led the round, the Mumbai-based startup said in a statement.
Startup incubator and accelerator Venture Catalysts, the UAE-based Calega Ventures, The Chennai Angel Network, and Marvari Angel Network also participated in this round.
Callify.ai was set up in 2016 by Chetan Indap, who is the company’s CEO. Other executives include Sunny Sharma, its CTO, and Deepanti Kavi, its COO.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Indap previously founded Eazyhire. Insiders Research Solutions LLP acquired it in an all-cash deal. He has also worked with L&T Infotech and Birlasoft.
The startup, operated by Joule Consulting Pvt. Ltd, says it is an artificial intelligence-based voice-powered platform that helps working professionals automate their daily outbound phone interactions. It helps users with the ability to screen leads without calling, increase closure rates, reduce the cost-per-hire, and conduct performance data analysis.
It will use the capital it has raised to strengthen its presence in the human resources-technology segment and replicate its technological infrastructure to address use-cases across several other industries.
Callify.ai says it has worked with Infosys, Accenture, NTT Data, HDFC Bank, and Orange Telecom.
The firm’s investment is the latest bet on a startup leveraging AI to offer differentiated solutions to clients. Companies in the space have raised cheques of various sizes in recent months from both institutional and strategic investors.
