Message.io was founded in the spring of 2016 with the simple mission of enabling a write once and run everywhere philosophy for conversational interfaces (aka bots).
We believe that conversational interfaces represent the future. They will redefine how work gets done as more people spend time utilizing message platforms. Our strategy is to let developers add, syndicate, and then manage their bots across any end point.
