Jongla, the developer of the app Jongla – Social Messenger , announced today the release of their Delivered social messaging SDK and cloud service for companies and app developers. Delivered lets businesses leverage the same core technologies that have fueled Jongla’s successful apps: light and social messaging. With Delivered, Jongla aims to revolutionise user and fan engagement for entertainment, health & fitness and sports communities.
- Lite – Light SDKs and a new proprietary messaging protocol that saves bandwidth
- Scalable – A cloud service that auto-scales capacity from modest to massive user bases
- Social – In addition to 1-1 chats and groups, Jongla will make its popular community feature a first-class citizen of the Delivered SDK
Helsinki, Finland. 15th Nov 2017 – Jongla, the Finnish mobile messaging innovator, announced today that they will start offering their messaging technology for other companies and app developers. Known earlier for their world’s lightest messenger, Jongla, that gained popularity in emerging markets, the company now offers their latest innovations as a light messaging SDK and fully-hosted cloud service for Android and iOS.
“Chat is king – instant messaging has become the dominant form of person-to-person communication in the twenty-first century and mobile users expect an effortless, real-time user experience”, says Riku Salminen, CEO of Jongla. Consumers now spend most of their time online on mobile social networking and messaging apps. This has lately led most companies in the mobile business to consider adding messaging as part of their service. “App developers also face challenges with user retention and well built messaging features can improve that a lot”, Salminen continues.
The Jongla team built their own messaging protocol to make the solution consume as little data as possible. “By offering a light SDK and smart messaging protocol that consumes very little data, we make sure that our prices are competitive and any company can benefit from adding our messaging solution to their app”, Salminen explains. “Many of the entertainment, health & fitness and sports communities we target have users in emerging markets and we continue to care about the user experience of those users. Data cost and mobile network stability are real issues for these people.”
In addition to data saving, the new Delivered solution is about social discovery features and group messaging at massive scale. “We want to help companies build communities based on attributes like interests, events and location. With Delivered, they can build their own social network inside their app”, Salminen says and continues: “Users no longer have to leave those apps to socialise on instant messaging apps or social networks.”
Jongla’s first customer is PicMix, an Indonesian photo sharing app. “We have more than 30M users worldwide sharing photos, collages and videos. We use Delivered to turn our app into an active sharing community. Messaging opens up a new world for our users as it allows deeper interaction around their brilliant content” says Calvin Kizana, CEO and founder of PT Inovidea Magna Global, the company behind PicMix.
Jongla’s business model is a subscription-based fully-hosted cloud service and SDK. They are actively working with pilot customers and continuing to develop their service further.
Jongla is an innovative Finnish-based company, specialising in operator-, device- and platform-independent instant messaging. Established in 2009, Jongla was founded by entrepreneur Arto Boman. The company is owned by a group of private investors and management. To date, Jongla has received a total of €12M in funding. The company is headquartered in Helsinki, Finland and has offices also in Jakarta, Indonesia.
