Our development team:

Saysimple is an omnichannel communication platform (SaaS) that allows companies to communicate with their customers through all communication channels, such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Instagram etc. from a central inbox.

Our stack includes AWS, NodeJS, TypeScript, VueJS, MySQL, Git, Kubernetes, and Docker.
