Guild, started by the co-founders of Econsultancy, Ashley Friedlein and Matthew O’Riordan, is “the WhatsApp for work”. Guild is a professional messaging app that is as easy to use as an everyday messaging app but built just for work. Guild is GDPR-compliant and advertising free. Guild was created in recognition both of the surge in mobile and messaging use professionally, and the timeless need for high-quality communication at work.
Guild is built for any professional group, network or community whose members want to communicate, share, learn from each other, stay in touch, develop and nurture valuable professional relationships. Simply put it is a messaging platform, as familiar and easy to use as WhatsApp. Recent research shows almost 40% of UK/US professionals use WhatsApp for work but that 75% would prefer an alternative messaging service for a solely professional context. Guild provides this, as well as being GDPR-compliant, properly private, and ad free.
