In Southeast Asia, there are many tech messaging applications in use, and most customers choose these over email when contacting businesses.

The largest apps, including WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Line, Viber, Telegram, and WeChat, all have a common dashboard on Respond.io. The tech business announced that it has secured $7 million in Series A funding. Which was led by Headline and included contributions from Sterling Oak Group, AltaIR Capital, Smart Partnership Capital, and Calendula Ventures.

More than 10,000 businesses currently utilize Respond.io, including Klook, Decathlon, Abenson, Yoho, Roche, ShareChat, and Bigo.

The dashboard from Respond.io combines all the communications a company receives so the appropriate person can view them. It processes more than 140 million messages each month. Additionally, it has capabilities for selling, marketing, and customer service. It is also capable of automating workflows like creating chat menus, drip campaigns, internal pipelines, and calling on external actions. Using a central dashboard allows administrators to immediately identify dropped conversations and restart them.

Response.io has increased its income 25 times since its last round of fundraising in January 2020. With the help of its most recent capital, it hopes to grow outside of Asia. And into the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America in order to continue luring big businesses.

In order to act as an omnichannel message inbox, Gerardo Salandra, NUST Alumnus; Hassan Ahmed, and Iaroslav Kudritskiy founded Respond.io in 2017. Respond.io uses consumer feedback to develop its tech platform as part of its product-first philosophy. Respond.io helps clients prioritize deployments by allowing them to vote on the features they want to see on a public roadmap.

For instance, Respond.io was recently localized in Spanish since a significant portion of its users—about 30%—live in Spanish-speaking nations. They requested that the platform be made available in that language.

Its Contact Merge tool is yet another illustration. Customers frequently message across numerous channels, therefore this indicates that their chats are spread out throughout other profiles on the network. Even if they start utilizing a different channel for messages, the Contact Merge tool employs an algorithm to detect repeat clients.
