About

  

  

   

 

 

 

We support the latest email standards for secure email delivery and receipt. Optionally encrypt all your emails with a private key. Automate using filters and our development API.

Events are customized to your needs. Share your screen or video, edit content together, track assignments, and share attachments. Whether it's a business meeting or a public concert, your event is better with EndFirst.

Whether you're in the office or around the globe, secure access to files is key to a successful business. Your files are always available and always stored and transmitted with the most secure encryption available.

Contacts help us stay in touch. With EndFirst you'll always have access to your employee directory as well as your own personal and business contacts.

With pervasive remote working, video collaboration has become a must-have for many businesses. EndFirst makes it possible to connect effortlessly and share seamlessly.

Tracking work that needs to be done doesn't need to be a chore with EndFirst. There are individual to-do lists as well as project, team and company lists. Manage your work how it makes sense.

Sometimes it's just quicker to ask a question over IM than it is to pick up the phone or send an email. Chat securely with co-workers and enjoy the "instant" in messaging. 

Editing content with a team via email is so yesterday! EndFirst brings collaborative content editing to everyone. Reduce re-work, copying and pasting, and re-formatting. 

 

Better communication saves you time and money. Hold virtual meetings with ease, automate takes, securely access information you need from anywhere and more. Now you can focus on changing the world.  

Your data is yours and yours alone, and you deserve reliable and secure access! No government, organization or individual should have unauthorized access to your information. We use industry proven encryption and host on our own servers to keep your data safe.    

Branding helps companies build a trusting relationship with customers. Build that trust by having your own domain name for your website, email and communications. Allow EndFirst to manage all the confusing DNS records and domain settings for you. No hassle and worry free.  

No one likes to be kept in the dark. What do other communication providers REALLY do with your data? With EndFirst you don't have to guess because our source code is open for review at any time. Open source fosters innovation, unrivaled security, and trust.

People thrive when work and play are exciting. EndFirst helps to automate the monotony, and brings new life to events. Connect better with customers, make events more fun and engaging, and speed communication. Bring happiness to your workplace and customers.  

Try counting to 1000 without making a mistake. While humans may not be good at tasks like this, computers are great. EndFirst gives you tools and computing power to give repetitive communication tasks to the computer where they belong. Error rates go down and satisfaction goes up.  

Ever stopped to count how much time you spend each day communicating? EndFirst helps you automate and make communication more effective. Spend your time delighting customers instead. 

  

In order to meet our meet our low price goals, we are hosting EndFirst on our own servers in a state-of-the-art data center. We can't host in the cloud (like AWS) because our hosting fees would exceed the costs we are charging customers. So we created a custom server design to deliver you rock-solid reliability, high performance and low cost for our service. But, that means we have a HUGE up-front cost to enter the market. We set our goal to $200,000 since that is the lowest we can go and break even. 

We want to build a sustainable business that you can rely on for years to come, and we refuse to raise additional money by selling your data to advertisers. By setting our funding goal to $200,000, we know that we have a sustainable business model, and you know your data will be safe for years to come.

We will be releasing capabilities in a staged manner so that we can ensure a great customer experience for all of our capabilities. Customers desiring to get early access to new features will also have the opportunity to participate in our product betas before general rollout (not just the 1.0 beta listed below).

 

Risks and challenges

EndFirst has been operating in stealth mode since 2015 developing our product, and we've already been beta testing many of the pieces of our software. The core pieces of the application are already working, and the demo in the video was done with test versions of our product. Our job now is to order and install servers and put the final touches on the software.

While we are confident that we can deliver on time, software is hard, and unforeseen problems almost always come up. We have done our best to account for uncertainty in our time estimates. We are excited to finish up our work and make this dream a reality.
