Lee’s Summit-based startup ProfessionalChats has been acquired by Ruby Receptionists, the company announced Tuesday.

ProfessionalChats, founded in 2016 by Scott Hansen, handles outsourced online chats for businesses, especially in the areas of medicine, dentistry and orthodontics. The company currently has 130 employees, the Kansas City Business Journal reports.

Ruby, a Portland-based live calling service, hopes the acquisition will help it move into the digital communication sphere.
