Restaurant Reservations Made Easy with Truecaller
One day, when I was working late in the office, I thought about ordering dinner. I called a local restaurant in Trivandrum, and the reservation staff answered the phone and asked, “Hello Mr. Sibi! How may I help you?”
I was shocked. This caught my attention, and I asked the guy how he knew my name? He replied that they are using Truecaller on their restaurant line to identify each customer’s name in order to provide quicker booking times for reservations, and also increase their quality of service. I proceeded with my dinner order, and before hanging up the phone, the restaurant guy told me “Sibi, you can now order food by just a text message, as Truecaller helps us know who our regulars are through text message too!”
Truecaller is truly a great customer service tool for any local business.

Being back in our headquarters in Stockholm has allowed us to reflect from our trip to India this past week. Here is what we learned:
- India is an amazing country full of sincere and respectful people.
- The food is 100% more spicy than Swedish food; but a real treat!
- Our Indian users showed us so much love and gave us inspiration to take back with us to headquarters
We were able to meetup with some users and entrepreneurs at TechSparks in Bangalore, and had the pleasure of chatting about the Indian startup eco-system.
Overall, India is a country we will be seeing much more of in the future. Our team cannot wait to meet more of our users and hear their stories. Thank you India for the amazing week and encouraging feedback to make Truecaller a stronger app in everyone’s lives.

Ranging from North America, to the Middle East, hitting Europe, grazing through Africa, and straight on to India. Our Truecrew ambassadors are teachers of Truecaller and role models in their communities.
Our visit to India would not be complete unless we met with our three Indian brand ambassadors!
What does being a Truecaller brand ambassador in India mean to you?
“It was a pleasure meeting and interacting with Truecaller’s team members from Sweden- Kim and Ted, India’s country head Kari, and Indian co-ambassadors Kanul and Anshika.

At the beginning of the week, our founders Nami and Alan traveled to India for the first time.
“We went to Delhi and Mumbai, and truly experienced Indian culture. The people we met were warm hearted, hospitable, and had a great love for their country,” said our co-founder Nami.
During their time in India, the duo took the time to meet up with some users to discuss Truecaller. Alan, our CEO, explained the importance of taking time to meet the people who use Truecaller, and of course, for the users to meet the people behind the app. It was also very humbling and exciting to the founders when they realized how many people recognized their Truecaller t-shirts or stickers on their suitcases.
“Traveling to India was a trip we will never forget and look forward to visiting again and again.”
