Trillian is lightweight and easy-to-use
Call us old-fashioned, but we're firm believers that messaging apps should not be using hundreds of megabytes of RAM when idle. That's why we continue to spend the extra time and effort necessary to build native versions of Trillian for every operating system we support to help keep resource consumption reasonable.

Trillian has centralized administration
Everything your users can do in Trillian can be controlled centrally, and an optional centralized chat history archive allows your business to stay on the right side of compliance and regulatory concerns. Small businesses and customers from highly regulated industries like healthcare alike are able to enjoy Trillian's full feature set while still staying compliant.
