A note from George

founder & impster-in-chief

I founded imp because I was tired of unwanted calls on my landline.

We live in New Hampshire, where it can feel like our phone is ringing all day long.

And most of these rings are from calls we don’t want.

I am sure you can relate.

After signing up for the "Do Not Call List," trying every call-blocking strategy on the Internet (looking at you, *60), and buying all of the call-blocking devices available, I came to realize two things:

  1. 1. Call-blocking simply doesn't work
  2. 2. No one is doing anything about all of these unwanted landline calls

With unwanted calls being the FTC's biggest consumer complaint (as well as mine), I decided to do something.

Something different.

Instead of worrying about all of the unwanted calls, what if we chose to focus on the calls we actually want?

So we spent the next two years focused on exactly that.

The result of this new approach to the old problem is imp - our smart call-filtering system for landlines.

Now, I actually look forward to my phone ringing.

Our small, but mighty team has been, and remains, hard at work to deliver you this amazing, new technology.

And we look forward to having you join us in our mission to save the world from the scourge of unwanted callers.
