Microsoft on Wednesday launched an App Kaizala, a mobile application to convey messages for large group communication can enable messages to be sent to millions of people in a group simultaneously.
“Microsoft Kaizala, a made for India product, brings together the two disparate worlds of mobile only messaging apps and a digitally integrated modern workplace,” said Anant Maheshwari, president, Microsoft India.
He also stated that “Microsoft Kaizala has been optimized for 2G networks to enable connectivity in remote locations and offers features with offline support,”
It includes the feature of adding as many people in the group as you want. Further, you can also group to other groups. It also offers the ability to create polls, documents, and surveys. These can then be shared with the group to get a response from the masses.
Kaizala is powered by Azure Cloud platform, and the company has announced an enterprise version called ‘Kaizala Pro’ which allows organizations to have full administrative control of their groups.
Microsoft has been testing Kaizala with many other business companies. The company says, more than 30 government departments have signed up to the platform. More than 70,000 people from the state government are already using Kaizala for day-to-day work.
Microsoft Kaizala has seen significant adoption among Indian organizations such as YES Bank, Apollo Telemedicine, Republic TV, United Phosphorous Limited, and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan.
The app is available to download for free from both Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Microsoft Kaizala Pro is available to purchase at a price of Rs 130 per user per month.
