The company raised money last month from private angel investors. It has five employees in Hong Kong and one in Singapore. Its beta customers included a Chinese hotel and a call center in the Philippines, so hundreds of candidates were processed. (Customers’ feedback helped; in response, for example, Talkpush added a “share” feature to send a short audio file to a colleague).
