Imagine Whatsapp for businesses. Back in 2018, that’s essentially what founder Ashley Friedlein came up with. The future of work is only going to get more digital, more remote, more mobile, and Friedlein has concocted software to capitalise on this.

Guild is an online messaging app designed for companies who need something simple and affordable, but still secure enough for business use. Crucially, unlike workflow platforms like Slack and Teams, Guild can be used inter-personally across organisations. For example, any business with a subscription to Slack can (in most cases) only send messages to its own employees. Get Guild, and you can contact any other business in the Guild-o-sphere!

Guild’s starter plan is pretty generous, too – businesses who want to give it a try can get a one month free trial. Then, if they’re happy with their first whirl, they can make that whirl last a whole while longer, paying a monthly or annual fee based on the number of users they have.

Guild currently has hundreds of customers across a variety of different sectors, and you only need to take one look at Guild’s swish website to see that these guys really know their tech.
