Our Story

In 2014, we set out to solve the world’s “email problem” – the outdated way many teams collaborate, which is slow, difficult to manage, and filled with time-wasting junk mail.

Ryver was the result – the best platform for teams to communicate, manage tasks, and automate business processes all in one app.
