Cloudonix – 9 March
Cloudonix’s smart voice calls enable frictionless experiences that drive better customer care and faster sales by merging voice and data into a complete service context. Cloudonix adds Cloud capabilities to your existing on-premise Call Center enabling your agents to work from anywhere in the world. Security, Privacy, and more – rapidly deployed and cost-effective without replacing your existing systems or retraining your team.
Cloudonix’s main competitors include Agora.ai, Twilio, and Nexmo. Cloudonix’s biggest advantage, however, is that they have a more predictable billing model, this is a drastic change from the way the current industry has been based on per minute, per device, and per connection pricing. This tends to lead to a very unpredictable monthly expense.

Originally, Cloudonix was bootstrapped and revenue-generating from day one. In 2017, an investor from one of their customers voiced an interest in investing in Cloudonix and thus became their first outside investment of $500,000. Later, Cloudonix participated in the ERA NYC accelerator and received a $100,000 investment that led to an additional $50,000 in angel investment in the summer of 2019.
In order to further fulfill their positive growth trajectory, Cloudonix is starting a seed round and is looking to raise US$3 million. The funds raised will be used to grow their sales team in order to expedite growth, with some additional development and support staff.
Cloudonix sells based on a flat rate model that is a combination of the number of concurrent agents and the number of connected devices or subscribers.
