Looking for a multi-channel messaging tool. It should have an Android app as our agents will only be using phones. It would be great if it also had a shared inbox, agent routing, and ticketing functionality. Relevant channels: SMS, WhatsApp, WhatsApp calls, and Phone calls.

Hello everyone, I plan on building a platform that supports 100s of forums out of the box, it would give the user the ability to create forums, where other users can comment, post images, and videos (the size of videos would be limited). Each forum would have the ability to trend. I have been doing a lot of research and I have arrived at Golang and Erlang as the backend languages and PostgreSQL as the DB. Erlang would be used for the routing of chats and messages, while Go would be used to manage the forums. We would also be implementing a one on one chat system like WhatsApp chat, where users can add contacts.

Please I would like to know if the languages picked are appropriate for this project. Suggestions would be appreciated.
