Where Steve, the co-founder of loyalty app Smile.io, bumped into Oisin O’Connor. The pair started talking about their respective apps (Oisin runs the ReCharge subscription app) and realized they had a lot in common. “We were both going through the same thing, trying to get our apps out there, and we really hit it off. By the end of the night, we exchanged advice back and forth on everything from marketing advice to product advice to support.” They exchanged emails and kept in touch. At first, the boys met and continued to share advice, but eventually their relationship and mutual respect turned into asking each other for advice and using each other to exchange ideas. Although ReCharge and Smile.io are complementary apps, Steve says that integrating the two wasn’t really a priority at first.

“We always knew it was something that would be useful, but it was never the purpose of our conversations,” says Steve. Eventually, an agency partner asked the two companies to consider a collaboration; It turns out that several Indian Business Fax List merchants who use ReCharge also use Smile.io. The duo agreed and started building in November, opened its beta in December, and fully launched in January 2017.
