Chatway is an all-in-one instant messaging and project management platform that helps teams reach goals faster by connecting conversations with action items and enabling real-time collaboration.
Most instant messenger aren’t built for professional use, forcing users to mix business and personal communications under one platform. The platforms that are created for businesses purposes don’t serve the needs of low-tech companies; they are challenging to learn, don’t provide an all-in-one solution and require multiple integrations.
With this in mind, Chatway was founded in 2016 with the goal of developing a solution that anyone, at any company, could use – from small businesses to enterprises. As we built Chatway, we kept one thing in mind: the product had to be so easy to use that even our most tech-adverse grandmas could handle it without much effort.
We began by building a messenger interface that felt familiar and functioned similarly to the messengers we use every day to stay in touch with family and friends. We knew that we needed to connect conversations and decisions to actionable next steps, so we added in the productivity tools that every organization needs to thrive.
Today, Chatway has evolved into a powerful business solution that empowers teams to work smarter and faster by supplying them with a unified place to communicate and collaborate, manage complex projects and daily tasks, access company knowledge and maintain transparency.
