7T’s messaging platform SayHey Messenger® is featured in a new KillerStartups article titled, “Texas-Based Startup SayHey Messenger Takes on Instant Messaging Giants,” examining the business messaging platform’s position within the fast-evolving instant messaging niche. Written by Maya Johnson, the article delves into the world of more than 23 billion text messages that are sent each day — that’s around 270,000 texts per second.
“This article really captures the incredible challenge we’ve taken on with this project,” explained 7T president and co-founder Shane Long. “Today, we’re focused on the nest step up the path, not climbing the entire mountain in one go. But make no mistake: SayHey Messenger® has momentum and we are going to reach the summit!”
KillerStartups explores the app’s features that set it apart from consumer-grade messaging platforms, such as data governance tools, in addition to a full suite of reporting and auditing tools that allow companies to establish and maintain regulatory compliance.
“A few years back, 7T Inc., creators of SayHey Messenger®, saw an immense opportunity in the shift away from voice- and email-based workplace communication. Today, despite sharing the space with Fortune 500 competitors like Microsoft, Salesforce (which owns Slack), and Meta (which owns WhatsApp), SayHey Messenger® stands out as a secure, private, and fully-compliant app for users in heavily-regulated industries like healthcare, banking, finance, and insurance,” the article explains.

Instant Messaging: One of the Most Effective Business Communication Tools
Instant messaging is critical for success in today’s highly-competitive corporate landscape. In fact, research has revealed that instant messaging is among the most effective business communication tools out there. But you can’t simply install any random messaging app. You need an app that’s designed for business use. Consumer-grade messaging apps can actually bring more harm than good, especially in highly-regulated industries such as the financial sector.
You could find yourself in hot water if you use an off-the-shelf messaging app to communicate with customers or clients. Nearly a dozen major banks were fined a combined sum totaling nearly $2 billion dollars after employees communicated with clients using apps such a WhatsApp, iMessage and Signal. The use of these apps created a situation whereby the financial institutions failed to comply with record keeping laws. This ultimately prompted the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to issue $1.8 billion in precedent-setting fines.
