Our platform can process all kinds of content from video to audio, from links to text posts or image and image galleries. You can integrate any source or news feed with a few clicks and automate your publishing workflows the way you want. Our platform sees itself as a thing layer on top your existing content stack, that empowers small teams to serve and engage with their audience through a daily mix of up to date content or news. Within the app you can open web content that is directly delivered from your website or you can use native content formats that provide a premium user experience that users like.

Automatically import content from your existing content management system

tchop provides a powerful integration feature that lets you import content from a huge variety of sources: from RSS feeds to social media, from website scraping to podcasts or newsletters.  There is so much valuable content out there – why not let that content work for you! Curate, comment and provide valuable context for your target group with automated workflows.

Our integration methods allow a high degree of automation, so that content is flowing seamlessly through our system directly to your users – wrapped in a great mobile experience.

Provide a premium mobile experience for your most valuable users

We all know: A good user experience is key on mobile. Users love native apps. That’s why we provide you with truly native apps for iOS and Android in the look & feel of your brand (no HTML or cross browser framework!). Our apps are based on the most successful patterns people are used to from the most loved apps out there. Users benefit from features like push messages or native sharing, that lets them share content out of other apps with a few clicks. Our live chat is a real native mobile chat, which empowers you to connect and engage directly with your most trusted users.

Benefit from a flexible multi channel approach that lets you serve multiple learning programs – in one app

We believe that meaningful engagement often happens in smaller groups and micro communities. That’s why tchop lets you set up a flexible multi channel structure that is highly dynamic and flexible. Provide the right content to the right users, assign rights and roles independently for each channel and create a content offering that perfectly fits your learning programs.

Use a real time chat to engage and connect with your community

We believe that conversation around content is what creates a valuable community. This is why we provide a full, secure real time chat that comes with all the features you know from the most popular chat apps (public and private group chats, 1:1 chat, content sharing, push notifications etc). As we believe in full editorial control you can decide how and where to use live chats based on a detailed roles and permissions scheme. You connect with your community, but you can also let users connect with experts, teachers or with each other – in the way you want! You always have full control how and when to use it. But experience shows: there is no better way to connect on mobile!

Keep users engaged and coming back for more with the most powerful retention loops

Apps offer the unique option to to reach users outside of apps itself on their lock screen or message center. tchop allows you not only to send such push notifications and link to any content at any time, it also includes the retention loops that Facebook, WhatsApp&Co are based on: users get push notifications for each chat message they receive or if someone liked their comment or content. If you want you can link push messages to your surveys or tests that are core part of your learning program. For instance remind users to fill a test or to go through a certain course.

Use surveys or quizzes optimized for mobile to engage with your community and get feedback to any topic instantly

tchop lets you integrate any survey or feedback tool with a few clicks. You can link it to a courses, content or just create standalone feedback spaces, where you engage with your audience. Based on our default Typeform integration you can see live results and understand what your audience thinks on any topic you are interested in (but it´s easy to use any other given tool or service you are already using). All wrapped in a friendly mobile experience that invites more answers and engagement.

We believe in privacy, security and business models that are not solely based on tracking and advertising
