Microsoft has launched a new Mobile App in Kenya dubbed Microsoft Kaizala to help better communication amongst businesses and larger groups.
The app which has been designed for large group communication, workflow management, reporting and analytics, is integrated with Office 365.
It aims at improving the way businesses communicate and collaborate, a challenge faced by many businesses.
According to Sebuh Haileleul, County Manager for Microsoft in Eastern Africa, “Mobile technology is enabling businesses to embrace the fourth industrial revolution and digitally transform their operations.”
And as such, Microsoft Kaizala is ideal for organisations that need to communicate with large numbers of task workers to enhance business agility, collaboration, and organisational productivity.
Kaizala extends beyond a mere communication function, it only requires a mobile number to sign a user up.
The app is also optimised to work on any network including slow 2G networks.
Kalso provides actionable information through analytics and reports, while complying with industry security best practices.
The app is currently Tier-A compliant and as a result, engineers do not have access to any customer data.
According to the company, customer’s messages, photos, video files, audio files, documents, polls, surveys, and other data is protected by encryption in-transit and at-rest.
