BetterVoice Acquires Calltrunk
We are excited to announce that BetterVoice, an Austin based telephony company has acquired Calltrunk.
Over the last four years we've enjoyed working with you, our users, to innovate and bring better services to telephony.
BetterVoice is a feature-rich service, and we're confident you'll love it.
BetterVoice integrates with your address book just as Calltrunk did. Their outbound calling system uses your phone's outbound line, which is a more natural experience than Calltrunk's dial-back.
BetterVoice's inbound support is truly remarkable, and goes far beyond anything we planned to build at Calltrunk. BetterVoice allows you to redirect any inbound number through their system, so it is automatically recorded. They've built a very sophisticated call routing system that allows you to automatically send calls to voice mail, approve calls before accepting them, or route them to multiple numbers. All of these features can be turned on or off depending on time or day, or the caller's number. Few businesses have this type of capability on their office systems. With BetterVoice all those features are available to any telephone.
In addition to supporting standard telephony, all BetterVoice calls can optionally be routed over the Internet (VoIP) in order to avoid toll charges while traveling.
Thanks to the Calltrunk acquisition, BetterVoice has incorporated Calltrunk's search capability into their platform. It not only indexes your recorded calls but also your recorded voicemails.
All of us at Calltrunk have been heavy users of our own service, and we are very excited to be able to start using all of these new features of the BetterVoice service.
We will be ending the Calltrunk service on Friday, 8th May 2015. This means that you will only be able to continue using Calltrunk US to make and record phone calls until 8th May 2015 at midnight EST.
At that point it will not be possible to create new recordings with Calltrunk US. You will still be able to login to your account until 15th May 2015. That's when the Calltrunk service will be completely shut down.
We recommend signing up for BetterVoice, as soon as possible, so you don't lose any important calls. When you sign up with BetterVoice you will automatically get 1 month free to try out their service. You will be able to migrate ALL your recordings to your BetterVoice account after May 11th 2015. We have put detailed instructions for signing up and migrating your data into the FAQ.

Once again, we are excited to be bringing you this news and we thank you for all your support.
