The story behind our name

We chose the name "Qwil" as a modern take on the traditional Quill pen: history's most prominent writing tool that pioneered the spread of written communication.

It composed our literature, affirmed our legal landmarks, and enabled commerce to flourish.

Now, in the digital age, its influence is embraced by Qwil Messenger . We continue this ideal of simple written instant communication to revolutionise how businesses interact with their clients.
