7T’s business messaging app, SayHey Messenger®, received a mention from Inc. in a recently-published article titled, “How Entrepreneurs Can Better Identify Market Gaps.” Inc. writer John Hall, president and co-founder of Calendar, examines one of the latest trends amongst entrepreneurs who are seeking to gain a competitive edge: pursuing business opportunities in niches that represent a market “gap.”
The Inc. article points to SayHey Messenger® as one example of a business that serves what was previously an unaddressed use case in an existing market space. It’s just one of the strategies that Hall explores in the Inc. Magazine article, which also recommends conducting an in-depth gap analysis and keeping your finger on the pulse of regulatory and legislative impacts.
Instant Messaging for Business Communications: SayHey Messenger®
SayHey Messenger® is a business instant messaging app that allows for auditing and reporting, full ownership and control of messaging data and streamlined moderation within a full-featured admin portal, among other advantages. A messaging mobile app for business communications, SayHey Messenger® integrates into your existing enterprise software ecosystem and it also comes in the form of a stand-alone mobile app and web portal as part of a SaaS offering.
Instant messaging has become an integral part of the corporate landscape. In fact, messaging apps have been found to be some of the most effective business communication tools available. But you need to have the right app designed for business — not a consumer-grade messaging app since these platform lack the tools that today’s companies need to succeed. And in a highly-regulated industry such as the financial sector, you could find yourself in hot water if you use a consumer messaging app for business purposes. Nearly a dozen major banks were fined a collective sum totaling nearly $2 billion dollars after employees were found to be using WhatsApp, iMessage and Signal to communicate with clients. This resulted in record keeping law violations, which ultimately prompted the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to hand down these precedent-setting fines.
SayHey Messenger® is a unique and regulatory-compliant business instant messaging platform that solves this challenge and many others that companies confront when it comes to business communication. SayHey Messenger® features a familiar, user-friendly UI with a robust set of reporting tools, external SMS messaging capabilities, moderation tools and admin portal. The portal also allows for comprehensive data management, including exports, auditing tools and complete control over data retention.
The team at 7T developed SayHey Messenger® as a method for patching the holes in your company’s messaging situation. The platform features:
- Data sovereignty for control and ownership of all messaging data;
- Fully compliant instant messaging for regulated businesses;
- Seamlessly integrates into existing company software platforms;
- Admin portal for moderation, auditing, and inclusivity;

- Engaging, intuitive user interface for incredible adoption rates;

SayHey Messenger® offers two deployments: a SayHey Messenger® Business deployment with a mobile app platform (for iOS and Android) and web app portal. There’s also SayHey Messenger® Enterprise deployments, which entail storing all messaging data in the client’s private cloud environment and the platform is fully integrated within the client’s existing software platforms, including mobile applications. This allows users to access their instant messages without leaving the screen, leading to greater productivity, higher user adoption rates and better efficiency.
