CallRail’s history of innovation spans more than a decade, with the company recently celebrating its 10th anniversary. The company was founded by CEO Andy Powell, then a small business owner. Unable to find the call tracking technology he needed for his online business, he built it instead.
Over the past 10 years, CallRail has evolved from a call tracking product to a comprehensive marketing platform that helps small businesses market smarter, drive more high-quality leads, centralize communications, and turn leads into loyal customers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of technology that helps SMBs engage with their customers and adjust their strategies to a changing environment. To close out 2020, CallRail received a $56M investment from investors Sageview Capital and Leaders Fund, showing a strong vote of confidence in CallRail’s growth trajectory and the value its platform continues to provide its customers.
