About

Convergence’s mission is to help people work and play together remotely by providing the world’s most powerful collaborative application development platform, enabling software developers to create the next generation of real-time, collaborative applications.

The
Opportunity

The workplace is becoming increasingly decentralized. Over the past decade, telecommuters have increased four-fold in the United States. Workplace tools have not caught up because collaborative software is so difficult to create.

We’d here to change that. Never before has there been a development platform with a singular focus on true collaboration, enabling people to work together, simultaneously, on the same things.

Our mission is to enable the future tools of work. The opportunity is clear. We’ve done the hard part, now what will you create?

The State of
Real-time Collaboration

Google Docs. Microsoft Office Online. Apple iWork. What do these have in common? Office productivity functionalities, sure, but in the last few years they’ve all added real-time collaboration (at a considerable expense). These apps are used by tens of millions of people. Users are starting to expect real time collaboration in the software they use, and the applications that lack it are starting to look clunky and outdated.

But let’s face it, real-time collaborative software is HARD. Rich collaborative editing of arbitrary data structures requires sophisticated distributed concurrency control algorithms. Supporting effective communication and collaboration requires building many other features like messaging, chat, presence, collaboration awareness, and permissions. All of these things distract developers from focusing on their core domain expertise.

We want to bring real-time collaboration to the masses. You don’t have ultimate cash to burn or an infinite timeline — why should real time collaboration be limited to those that do? Convergence can enable the killer features that will set your app apart from your competitors. Your business is in your DNA; real time collaboration is in ours. Build an app that your users will love. Let Convergence bring you users together.
