Does it Make Sense to Have Your Own Chat App?
Messaging apps have certainly changed the way we communicate. They give us the opportunity to send messages to our colleagues, friends and relatives at lightning speed. But the data sovereignty and security of public applications don’t always meet the requirements of companies.

Can a recommendation be made?
The way your own messaging app will look is limited only by your imagination. Dozens of factors must be taken into account and many functions must be implemented.
If you need intensive data sovereignty or a flexible app with deep integration into existing systems and short release cycles, it makes sense to develop your own app. If your goal is an in-house messenger and data sovereignty isn’t particularly relevant, you can simply use an existing “white label” instant messenger service. These services can be easily customized and cover basic features like messaging, login and integration of the company logo.
