Corporate Profile – Vivox
Location: Framingham, Massachusetts
Launch Date: August, 2005
In the company’s own words, what is it? Vivox makes online communication natural. Communication is the essence of community, yet today’s online communities lack the richness of human interaction that we experience in the physical world.
Vivox managed services generate natural and engaging online interactions that reflect the intelligence, power and nuance of the physical world. A Pulver.com company that launched in August 2005, Vivox has served behind-the-scenes as the industrial strength platform for Free World Dial-Up, also a Pulver company, which provides VoIP services to global subscribers. Vivox is chaired by Jeff Pulver, an acknowledged pioneer in the Internet telephony/VoIP industry.
