For the first day of Web Summit callstats.io had an Alpha booth in the Builders area of the Royal Dublin Society complex. The area hosted plenty of different types of software products that help running a modern digital business. For example, next to the callstats.io booth was LiveAgent, a helpdesk and livechat software solution. A really nice bunch of guys from Slovakia with a product that is competing with Zendesk. Another startup in our viscinity in more ways than one, was Contriber from Estonia. Contriber is an online collaboration platform looking to beat Slack. Both of these amazing teams got callstats.io T-shirts to take home.
At the Web Summit, it was encouraging to see several WebRTC startups. We typically classify WebRTC companies into three categories: WebRTC apps and services, video conferencing, and WebRTC SDK providers.
WebRTC apps use video and audio as a feature, i.e., it is integrated into a larger service or app, good examples are healthcare, language learning applications, and team collaboration.
