Shai Berger, Fonolo’s CEO and Co-founder, wrote on his blog that “this is a huge win for Fonolo and comes as a complete surprise (OK I may have known about it a few days before it went live…). Seriously, it’s thrilling to see how well Fonolo resonates with the public. It’s further proof that we’re addressing a point of pain felt so deeply by so many people.”

Haven’t tried Fonolo yet? If you get frustrated calling big organizations with complicated phone menus to navigate through before you can get to a real person, you’ll appreciate Fonolo. Their technology lets you skip past any annoying phone menus that stand between you and the people you need to talk to. Instead of going through all the “press 1 for this” and “press 2 for that”, you can navigate the phone menu visually (on your computer or mobile device) and click on the end point you want to reach. Once you click where you want to be directed, your phone will ring shortly after with your connection to that point. No complicated navigation. No time wasted. No hassles. And the best part is: it’s free.

Congratulations to Fonolo on making’s 50 Best Websites 2009 list!
