Solgari is at the centre of the cloud software revolution transforming global business communications.

Our Story

Not since Alexander Graham Bell’s invention of the telephone in 1876 has technology unleashed such a huge change in how companies are communicating.

The 150 year old telecommunications industry is currently being massively disrupted by the movement from hardware to digital, cloud based software. For years businesses around the world have been putting up with the pain and costs of disjointed, unintelligent communication systems. But the cloud has changed everything. And this is where Solgari has developed our vision of offering all business communications and related compliance requirements through an integrated cloud software platform.

Today, Solgari powers all our customers digital communication channels - voice, video, chat & SMS - while automatically meeting related regulatory compliance requirements around GDPR, MiFID II and HIPAA. Our customers use whatever services they need through any device that connects to the internet, avoiding the need for expensive, disintegrated hardware, software and carrier solutions. Our customers enjoy a huge leap forward around business intelligence and productivity while removing or avoiding significant old world communication costs.

The future of business communications is here.

Led by a team of driven entrepreneurs building a market disrupting cloud software business.

Solgari's leaders have particularly strong knowledge and expertise in the fields of technology, financial services and corporate finance. We are applying decades of experience with Level 3, Texas Instruments and Citigroup as well as the invention of incredible cloud telephony, WebRTC and biometrics software to now revolutionize business communication services globally.
