Microsoft introduces Kaizala to Kenyans; a IM app for Group Communications and Work Management

Redmond tech giant Microsoft has launched a mobile app to help large group and organization’s staff in Kenya to communicate easily with each other. Dubbed Kaizala, this app is designed to ease communication with a large group of users. It also comes in handy on other fronts like work management, reporting, and analytics.

Kaizala is integrated into the Office 365. Kaizala app goes beyond functioning as your typical chat app. Microsoft says it also enhances your business agility, teammates collaboration, and the total organization’s productivity.

Sebuh Haileleul, the Country General Manager for Microsoft East and Southern Africa, says the app tackles several challenges businesses in Africa deal with especially when managing staff remotely.

Task workers working on construction sites, or in manufacturing plants, retail shops and other industries, typically don’t have a dedicated work space, computer or even email address. As a result, they generally use pen and paper, or unsecure consumer-messaging apps on their personal phones for work-related communications” explained Haileleul.

“This makes it hard for managers to share and collect important information. Kaizala makes it easier and less time consuming for organizations to communicate, assign, and track work in real-time, and create reports based on aggregated data.”

Rajiv Kumar, the Corporate VP, Office Product Group, Microsoft said, “Using Microsoft Kaizala, organizations can connect with their employees and the extended value chain. The product offers a simple and familiar chat interface, but goes beyond to make everyone more productive using Surveys, Polls, Jobs, Meetings and other actions, right in your chat.”

The Kaizala app is available for both Android and iOS devices.
