Where the Spearline story began

The Spearline story began in 2003 when the company was founded by college friends Kevin Buckley, CEO and Matthew Lawlor, CTO.

What our product does

Spearline and its product has hugely evolved since the business started. Today, the Spearline product is innovative, yet simple - we independently monitor toll-free and toll numbers. We support business sectors, such as contact centers, conferencing services and other applications, in successfully connecting with their customers. With the Spearline SaaS solution, our enterprise, unified communications and telecoms customers can test audio quality and connectivity globally.

The journey towards today

In 2009, Spearline developed the first automated number test and partnered with global conferencing company PGi. At the time, we had servers in 15 countries worldwide.

In 2013, we launched manual tests as a SaaS with servers in 35 countries worldwide. This was a turning point in the Spearline story as we know it today.

In 2016, we introduced a new development team in Romania, a new testing platform, and mobile offering online. At this stage, we had servers in 60 countries worldwide.

Why we are a success

The main ingredients of the Spearline success story are the knowledge of our team, an outstanding product and brilliant customers. Spearline has resilience born through learning from challenges and an ability to adapt, persevere and innovate.
