Interactive Chat Bots
Chat bots allow you to create information retrieval systems that enable your users to get predefined answers to their questions right in Threema. For example, you can create a knowledge base or make schedules available. Users simply enter a command and instantly receive the predefined answer as reply.
Central Group Management
Group chats created in Threema or Threema Work can only be managed by their creator. Threema Broadcast, on the other hand, supports central groups, which can be managed manually or automatically using the API. This is to say that a group’s management can be carried out by multiple administrators and without a mobile device. Furthermore, group members can be added automatically, for example.
In order to achieve employee satisfaction and to make sure that employees identify with the organization, it’s necessary that internal communication reaches the entire staff. Instant messaging is the ideal channel for this purpose because employees without a computer or those who primarily work off-site are also easy to reach this way.
Threema Broadcast is the ideal tool for managing your messaging communication. Versatile features allow you to target employees in the most suitable way.

Threema Broadcast allows to centrally create and manage group chats. These chats can be managed directly from the Threema Broadcast interface on a desktop computer. Messages sent to such a group chat will also be sent to the Threema Broadcast server since the respective Broadcast ID is also a group member. However, if the setting “Save chat history” (see below) is disabled, the server will discard incoming group messages right away.
Groups can contain up to 256 members. To send messages to more recipients, please use feeds and distribution lists.Save chat history
