MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PPLCONNECT today announced closing a seed round of funding with lead investor Sherbrooke Street Capital (SSC) Inc. and the latest release of its award winning mobile solution.
PPLCONNECT is an integrated communications solution for the multi-device environment we live in today. The previous beta release of PPLCONNECT integrated traditional SMS and calling with an OTT “over-the-top” free messaging service, available simultaneously between PC and device.
With the latest release, available today on the Google Play store, PPLCONNECT is the only mobile app which centralizes all messaging app notifications. PPLCONNECT users are able to receive their WhatsApp, Viber, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, and other communication app notifications live on their computer or tablet when logged in to PPLCONNECT, without any software installation required beyond the PPLCONNECT mobile app.
PPLCONNECT Co-Founder Jenviev Azzolin explains: “We know people use multiple messaging apps to communicate with all their contacts. Our goal is to make it easier for them to receive all their messages in 1 place cross-device. We believe PPLCONNECT is the desktop dashboard for your phone.“
PPLCONNECT already lets users send and receive SMS and make calls with their phone number from any device; now they can get notifications for key social media and messaging apps too, including: Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Skype, Instagram, WhatsApp, Viber, Snapchat, Hike, Line, WeChat, KakaoTalk, Kik, Tango, Nimbuzz, MessageMe, and ChatOn.
PPLCONNECT first launched its solution at SXSW 2014, and was nominated as one of the top 8 new mobile startups that will change the world.
PPLCONNECT lets users send/receive their SMS as well as free PPLCONNECT messages, all in a single thread. Users can then continue the conversation on their computer, tablet, and more. Users can also call with their phone number from any device. This is made possible via the PPLCONNECT App which links a user’s phone to the web. Users then have the option to log-in to PPLCONNECT on any device via the browser at: www.pplco.mobi and have access to their live SMS, Calls, Contacts, and more.
