Former Yammer executives roll out real-time communication tool for the BYOD era
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cotap, Inc. (www.cotap.com), a company bringing mobile-first communication to the workplace, today announced the launch of its Cotap App for iPhone. Unlike existing consumer mobile messaging apps, Cotap is designed specifically for business users to easily find and message anyone in their organization with just a tap of a finger.
People are increasingly using SMS and mobile messaging apps instead of email as their primary way of communicating in their personal lives. Cotap allows people to adopt this same behavior at work and will help companies embrace mobile-first communication for employees.
Key Features of Cotap:
With Cotap, employees don't need to search cumbersome employee directories or exchange mobile phone numbers. Instead, they simply download Cotap to their iPhone, confirm their work email address and immediately start a conversation with anyone in their organization. From last-minute scheduling changes to impromptu coffee runs, Cotap is designed to meet the needs of today's smartphone-enabled workers.
The diversity of mobile devices in the workplace has forced employees to rely on the lowest common denominators of communication: phone calls, emails and SMS. Companies and employees need a cross-platform enterprise mobile solution that provides both the simplicity and familiarity of consumer messaging apps and the security and reliability of a business solution.
"A company-wide mobile messaging system increases collaboration and deepens workplace relationships simply by leveraging the the device in everyone's pockets," said Jim Patterson, founder and CEO, Cotap. "Smartphone adoption and 'Bring Your Own Device' policies have created a huge opportunity for organizations to offer their employees a mobile-first channel to connect and collaborate with each other in real time, no matter where they are."
In the future, Cotap will release an enterprise-grade solution applicable to organizations of all sizes and industries. As part of this offering, Cotap will include premium features like user and device management, analytics and integration with core IT systems.
The Cotap App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.cotap.com/download.
