He conceived of the idea after realizing that no IP based phone systems were aiming to bring unified communications to small businesses and that much of the difficulty of integrating UC into small businesses could be automated. Together with his partner from Nuovotel Corp, Nabeel Jafferali, they received funding from Brightspark Ventures. Currently, Jazinga is one of only two small office phone systems sold in the Skype Store and has won numerous industry awards.
