ZipDial is the pioneering marketing + analytics platform for mobile marketing via missed calls. Marketers and advertisers love ZipDial to transform their brand campaigns into highly interactive and viral, while building a loyal customer base.

Simple interfaces like a missed call to ZipDial numbers, ensures interactions from 100% of the customers -smart or feature phone users, kids or adults, urban or rural dwellers.
