History[edit]

Creditcall Limited, originally Creditcall Communications Limited, was founded in 1996. Later, a North American subsidiary, Creditcall Corporation, was incorporated in 2005. The name Creditcall is derived from the name of Creditcall's first product, a telecommunications service that enabled callers to bill telephone calls to their credit or debit card.[1] Creditcall won 3i's Business Catapult Award in 1998 along with an initial investment in the company.[2]

In 2012 the management team completed a management buyout of the company backed by FF&P Private Equity and Bestport Ventures.[3]

On 21 April 2014 Creditcall was awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise.[4][5][6]
