About us

Reaching out to customers by telephone is one of the last surviving human and personal touch points left in our digital age. However, it is riddled with scamming and spamming and the increasingly diminished public trust is hurting the experience and efficiency of this important medium.

Our mission is to fix enterprise calling and allow as many qualifying companies as possible to benefit their customers with a safe, bespoke, and premium call experience. This is why our team, investors, and advisors comprise of individuals who have consistently marketed and supplied novel solutions to large blue-chip clients.

Smartcom secures the phone call from spoofing scams and brands the call screen so that call recipients can feel informed, empowered, and safe when they are being called. We have reams of data records from live commercial environments that demonstrate the revolutionary behavioural change from call recipients in Smartcom environments.
