About us

Mission

Empower automotive businesses with world-class AI.

Story

We’re Monik and Anthony. We've been friends and worked together for many years before starting Toma.

Toma began because we believed that voice AI was the best way for busy businesses to interact with their customers, instead of putting them on hold or making them wait for an email response.

After a foray into various industries including healthcare and banking, we fell in love with the automotive space because of the hard problems and wonderful people we met along the way.
