  • Android and iOS App for Notification Management

    An app for users to manage all their (existing) app notifications, organize SMS (coming soon), and most importantly, choose what type of notifications, in which fields, and from which companies they are open to receive them. It provides a unified platform for the user to gain complete control over the content he/she receives. The entire product range is divided into several categories (e.g., food, fashion, education) and further into sub-categories to filter down needs and requirements.

    Businesses are our customers. We help them communicate with users without the need to develop a platform from scratch. Our business portal facilitates user segregation based on their chosen fields. Our primary medium is a notification, so user feedback can be collected in different forms (click time stamp, engagement time, feedback buttons, etc.), offering a higher engagement experience.
