Ribbit unveils new communications suite

Includes voicemail transcription, smart call routing and web-based calling features

By CBR Staff Writer

Ribbit has released a cloud-based platform Ribbit Mobile, that provides a way to manage calls, messages and phones. It includes features such as voicemail transcription, smart call routing and web-based calling.

According to Ribbit, the Ribbit Mobile allows users to merge multiple phones, route mobile calls to other phones and answer their mobile calls on the internet. It also allows users to stay connected on their own terms and in any place and never miss any call.

The company said that the platform doesn’t require a new phone number, a new phone or a software download-and the it can be made active on any mobile phone in less than five minutes. It also converts voicemail to text and sends it to users via SMS and email. In addition, it also provides an online message inbox where messages can be managed and stored.

Reportedly, the platform also offers users a back-up phone online for those times when a users’ device is lost, stolen, broken or mobile service is unavailable. The web-based version of the mobile device enables users to make and receive mobile phone calls via an internet connection, regardless of their location or device accessibility.

Ribbit Mobile is built on the Ribbit Platform, a platform with open APIs that allows developers to add features to it. The company has also announced the developer rewards program which will compensate developers based on how much their applications are used, even if their applications are offered for free to end users. And they are rewarded on creating the most useful and popular applications that drive platform and network usage.

Ted Griggs, CEO of Ribbit, said: ”With voice and data networks merging, consumers, businesses, software developers and even traditional telecommunications carriers are exploring new ways to communicate and evaluating how to successfully manage multiple communication streams.

The challenge is that up until now the ways in which we most commonly communicate-voice, text, email, IM-exist in largely separate online and offline worlds. Ribbit Mobile is changing all of that.
