Microsoft India launched Microsoft Kaizala, a mobile-only product designed for large group communications and work management today. The company also announced its enterprise version, Kaizala Pro that allows organisations to have full administrative control of their groups.
The app makes it simple for organisations to communicate, collaborate and complete tasks thereby bringing together desktop and mobile-only users who might be within or outside their organisation. Since nowadays they are spreading out across the country, connectivity has become a priority. This is especially evident in industries like construction, manufacturing, insurance and healthcare. Kaizala will help organisations easily coordinate tasks across the value chain and gain actionable insights by just using their mobile number as their primary unique ID.
Microsoft Kaizala is powered by Microsoft Azure which is Microsoft’s cloud platform. Currently it is being used by YES Bank, Apollo Telemedicine, Republic TV, United Phosphorous Limited and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, who are piloting it for their internal teams. The Government of Andhra Pradesh is one of the first government organisations to use it for real time governance.
The Pro version has additional features that include user and group management, system integration and automation using Microsoft Kaizala APIs, advanced reporting and analytics, ability to push custom actions, ability to create public groups and organisational profile and directory. The pro version has a charge of Rs.130 per month for each administrative user.
