Chatpages is a mobile business directory launched globally in 2016 that enables live CHAT between customers and merchants.
Customers can browse businesses by location, category, keyword or company name, access details of a business, chat with the business and access discount coupons. Merchants can list their business for free on the app or subscribe to a monthly plan to get access to premium functionalities. The system also includes advanced analytics available to administrators and merchants as well as a referral programme that grants a commission to users that have referred paid listings. Methys was responsible to build the system supporting the service.
It included four interfaces: an Android app, a marketing website, a merchant panel and an administrative back-end.
