With increased smartphone use, voice apps are becoming increasingly popular among African users. Nigeria’s BeepTool is a local voice app that claims to have passed the half million user mark. Russell Southwood spoke to its CEO and Founder John Enoh about this home grown product.
Founder John Enoh had the idea for BeepTool several years ago when he was working for Ericsson as an engineer and started the company in 2014. He was struck by how expensive international voice calls were and wanted to find ways of reducing the cost of communicating.
