Technology giant, Microsoft has introduced Kaizala Pro locally, the firm’s latest mobile application that is said to streamline business communication.
Kaizala Pro app is available as a stand-alone or as a package integrated with Office 365, it is designed to connect millions of users with no membership limitation, making it possible for large companies to accommodate employees and even customers under a single platform and also gives its users ability to carry out multiple functions.
Kaizala group administrators are also able to restrict some actions including forwarding of messages within sub-groups and users can only access information or features that their respective organizations’ administrators have allowed.
The app’s capabilities make it suitable for large group communication, workflow management and coordination, reporting and analytics, as it helps companies to also gather information from surveys conducted in-app.
Microsoft Eastern Africa Country Manager, Sebuh Haileleul, said, “Mobile technology is enabling businesses to embrace the fourth industrial revolution and digitally transform their operations. Microsoft Kaizala is ideal for organisations that need to communicate with large number of task workers to enhance business agility, collaboration, and organisational productivity.”
“This means only you and the people with whom you are communicating can see what you have sent them. Microsoft Kaizala is currently Tier-A compliant and our engineers do not have access to any customer data,” Mr Haileleul added.
Companies or individuals can access the app through various Word 365 packages, for instance, Sh10, 999 per year for home service designed for two to five users, and Sh40, 000 annual packages for office and home for the PC 2016 package for a single device.
However, there are different prices for companies subscribing to varying service access and number of employees, but the app is enabled to work on low-end smartphones and any network including 2G.
According to Microsoft, the app is commercially available in 13 countries in the Middle East and Africa where customers using valid Office 365 subscription are eligible to use Kaizala Pro.
