SendHub, a business-focused call and messaging solution with a long-term goal of replacing PBX systems with mobile apps and online dashboards, has raised $3 million in Series A funding, the company is announcing today. The round was led by Bullpen Capital, and included participation from Menlo Ventures, Kapor Capital, 500 startups, China Rock Capital, plus angels Alexis Ohanian, Garry Tan, Harj Taggar and Kenny Van Zant.
SendHub provides businesses with phone numbers, including toll-free lines, which can route calls to personal cell phones, similar to Google Voice. It also supports a variety of advanced options, like voicemail transcriptions, call forwarding and transfer, contact sharing, group texting, SMS short codes, and more. Today, it’s adding support for file attachments, too – a feature that allows users to send any file type – PDFs, Office documents, etc. – via SMS.
