We caught up with Joseph Puopolo of PrintChomp at TechCrunch Disrupt to learn more about his company and how they use SendGrid to power email communications with customers.
PrintChomp allows customers to order business cards and then have the job sent to available, nearby printers thus giving the customer higher availability and more choice when it comes to location.
Joseph shared that he finds SendGrid valuable to their business because it’s easy to scale as the number of emails sent increases simply by changing their plan.
SendGrid supports many popular languages including Ruby, Python, Php, Java and Node.js. The same goes for frameworks with one of the most popular ones being our Ruby on Rails support as Joseph says in the video above. PrintChomp’s platform stack is Amazon AWS, Heroku, Ruby, Rails and SendGrid.
Joseph’s startup is offering this tool via the web but will soon offer a mobile version so people can place orders from their phones.
For parting words of advice to startup entrepreneurs considering TechCrunch Disrupt for next year to launch their products, Joseph recommends you be prepared to communicate at the booth. You may be approached by potential customers, partners, investors or developers who want to join your team, and you need to be able to talk about your product.
Thanks for watching!
