Donut is a well known app for Slack. It's mainly known for its random coffee feature to push people to meet in an organisation. It also provides a feature for birthday and work anniversary celebrations. However, today, we'd like to introduce you to a newer and better option: Billy, the birthday bot.

Created in 2023, Billy offers a modern solution for wishing birthdays with a human touch and a friendly yet professional tone. Unlike BirthdayBot, Billy prioritizes the personal touch over the robotic element, making it the ideal choice for modern companies using Slack to communicate. By using Billy to wish birthdays, you can improve employee recognition and create a more engaging work environment. So, if you want to make your employees feel valued on their special day, choose Billy for an unforgettable birthday celebration!

Billy is 10x cheaper (for 40 people, Billy costs $10 per month whereas $119 for Donut)

We believe that we provide a better service. We also propose a cheaper solution and a longer trial period. Billy's not just 2% cheaper, it is 10 times cheaper than Donut. Trial is not just longer, it's doubled.
