About the Client

Muzicall provides outsourced, end to end RBT (ringback tone) services to some of the leading operators in Europe, including Orange, Vodafone and T-Mobile. The funding will enable Muzicall to further implement its vision of making RBTs – usually a piece of music that replaces the ‘ring ring’ sound a caller hears before their phone call is answered – available to all European mobile phone users. Muzicall’s RBT.4.ALL platform enables customers to create their own content library, giving them the ability to assign a different tune for different callers, thereby creating a very rich and personalised experience.
