Switch Communications is a cloud-based phone service provider that operates on the Google Apps platform. The company offers a simple and consolidated phone system for businesses, allowing users to be reached at a single number across any device. The service is integrated with Google Apps, allowing for synchronization of the users contacts and information.
While initially targeted towards smaller enterprises, the company has experienced high demand from larger corporations, and has moved towards a broader marketing base. Switch has raised $53 million total over three fundraising rounds. The most recent, in May of 2015, raised $35 million towards financing and expanding their enterprise sales team.
The company was founded by three former Google engineers. Craig Walker, CEO, previously founded GrandCentral, which was acquired by Google and rebranded as Google Voice in 2007. Both John Rector and Brian Peterson, the other two founders, were previously engineers for Google Voice.
