Remember when you first signed up to Hotmail? And you had an inbox that was row upon row of subject lines? And you clicked on one and you got to see that person’s eye-searing combination of fonts & colours? Yeah, email hasn’t changed that much. In fact, it hasn’t changed much in 40 years.
The three of us left Google to form Fluent out of a desire to create a communication product that is design-led, fast moving and — most importantly — pushes email into the future. A tool that accurately reflects how people communicate today and will adapt to what they want tomorrow.
To fulfil this vision we’re building a product based on six principles:
- Simple conversations
- Streamlined workflow
- Access anywhere
- Beautiful design
- Seamless experience for desktops, small screens and touch devices
- Communicating in the best way possible
That last point is a big one. We feel we’ve already built a product that ticks the first five boxes (go ahead, take a look). We’ll always make sure that Fluent is top of its game in those areas, but we think that communication is more than just a text box. We’ve got some great plans for how to truly integrate collaborative notes, file sharing, image manipulation & task management into your communication and we’d love to have your input.
Fluent is all about you and how you communicate. We’ve currently using our beta to get enthusiastic people on early and help us shape what the future of email is going to be. If that sounds good to you then sign-up, get using, and enjoy communicating like it’s the 21st Century.
