๐Ÿ‘‹Hey Product Hunt, I'm happy to announce you our new product Ekko Now ๐ŸŽ‰ Let us know what you think!
Hello Hunters! We've been building messaging features for many websites and mobile apps in the past few years. We painfully realized that we were often "re-inventing the wheel", while the requirements were almost always the same: - Users want to be able to communicate in a familiar environment. - We'd like to be able to build messaging features quickly. - We'd like to not have crazy server bills because of running websockets inefficiently. That's why we decided to build our turnkey messaging solution Ekko Now! It helps adding messaging features in really short times to any platform and animate communities without having to be externalized. Please ask us if you have any specific needs! We'd be really happy to receive any feedbacks! On the roadmap, we have Ekko Now coming to React Native. We are also working on adding more and more customization features so Ekko Now could fit with any business with real-time messaging needs, without any complex development required.
Hi, I think this has amazing potential to replace current community forum software on the web if it can scale. Nice job guys, will be keeping an eye on this and looking into ways to integrate into our sites.
@skydeamike Thank you very much for your feedback, we are definitely working our best to become a replacement to "old school" community forums. There is still a lot of room for improvments but we have an exciting roadmap ahead :)
Looks like a interesting project congratulations on the launch! What would you say differentiates you from other similar products? Have i not seen an actual slack chat product?
@johndesk27 We think it's important that users are able to comunicate in an environment that looks familiar to them, that's why we got inspired by slack and are really working to provide the best UI/UX possible. We are really doing our best to be as cheap as possible, and as simple as possible to integrate. Our goal really is to help anyone being able to run their own "modern messaging features" on their platform, as it's more and more becoming a standard for many businesses.
Fast integration for a chat directly on the web ! Very nice
@alexandre_borel Thank you! Let us know if you have any other questions.
