What we do: Roost is a push notification platform for websites. Roost offers a sophisticated set of features, integrations for several digital publishing and e-commerce platforms, and an analytics dashboard.
Why it's a big deal: With the emergence of mobile apps, push notifications have become the preferred method of content consumption within apps. However, desktop push notifications are too cost and resource prohibitive for publishers to integrate with their websites. Roost solves this problem by offering an affordable platform for websites to send push notifications to their users, opening up a critical avenue for audience engagement.

First introduced with OS X Mavericks, Safari’s push notifications allow users to remain engaged with the websites they care about by opting in to notifications – in a similar way to how you opt in to push notifications within mobile apps.
