New wave of enterprise messaging
Now, the startup team behind GupShup has pivoted and launched Teamchat, an enterprise messaging app focused on employees who need to stay connected when on the road. GupShup app is being shuttered.
The NextBigWhat blog notes that Teamchat allows working groups of unlimited sizes, making it a better choice for working than SMS or any other messaging app. TeamChat also has backend APIs and access points to enable integration with existing ERP, CRM, and other enterprise systems. It’s fairly minimal and mobile-only, in contrast to most online team collaboration tools.
But enterprise messaging is far from an area bereft of rivals, so the GupShup team might have jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire. There are plenty of good options out there for online teams, such asWrike, CatchApp, Convo, or Podio. Or there are more established tools like Yammer.
Teamchat is free on Android, with apps for other OSes in development.
