Hey Ctelecoms followers! Just wanted to let you all in on an Office 365 app we’ve been using for the last several days. But, since it’s not as well-known as some other Office 365 solutions let’s start with the question:
Microsoft Kaizala is an Office 365 mobile app meant to empower first-line workers to be more productive. Firstline workers are those employees who are crucial to the success of a business but don’t necessarily work at a desk.
Kaizala is a phone-number based, simple, and secure mobile chat app that enables you to connect and coordinate work across your network – your organization, vendors, partners, suppliers, and customers.
Kaizala’s ability to work on low bandwidth is hugely beneficial to first-line workers who may be working in a rural area where high speed internet is simply unavailable.
In addition to providing firstline workers with a simple, intuitive interface for large group communications, workers can manage schedules, time sheets and more from Kaizala’s mobile interface, which is available for iOS and Android.
In Office 365, Kaizala offers large group capabilities to those both in and out of your organization. You can also share files, such as photos and documents easily. Furthermore, workers can create surveys, forms and quizzes. And broad, company or department-wide announcements can be made using Kaizala.
Aside from providing chat tools, the app also gives users the ability to make Actions. For example, it is possible to create a Poll, Job, or Survey within a chat. Responses to these Actions are presented in an easy to understand compilation.
Kaizala empowers Office 365 users with the following cababilities:
Communicate with people inside and outside your organization using only a phone number. Share text, documents, photos, and videos in a few taps. Customize group types to meet your unique communication needs.
Work using in-built apps such as poll, survey, job, training and more. Customize or build your own based on your needs. Gather insights from built-in analytics and reporting or customize as needed.
Use Kaizala’s open APIs to integrate with your line of business systems. Automate your business workflows with Office 365 integration such as with SharePoint, Flow, Excel, Power BI.
Use the Kaizala Management Portal to manage users and groups, assign group policies, enforce Azure Active Directory sign-in and more. Kaizala meets GDPR, ISO 27001, SOC1, HIPAA compliance requirements.
Well, that's not all. Stay tuned for more Kaizala Actions in our upcoming releases.
