Company profile

DeepBlueSea is a new brand from an established VoIP telephone company that was founded by two successful entrepreneurs in 2004. Kooi Lim and Bill Nesbitt were two friends that had built and sold their high profile tech companies in South Florida. They were looking for a new challenge so they combined their talents and architected an exceptionally scalable, reliable telephone platform. Over the years this platform was adopted by tens of thousands of companies worldwide under a white label/private label arrangement so that the company was powering millions of calls a month. It can work effectively for your company too.
