Microsoft Kaizala: Secure mobile app for large group communications and collaboration


Microsoft Kaizala is a mobile app and service for communicating and coordinating work in large, distributed groups. Now available in the Philippines, Kaizala makes it easy to connect with large groups of people inside and outside organizations. These can include employees, customers, and suppliers.

Security remains a top priority for most organizations and Microsoft Kaizala provides the controlled access and data security that they need. Azure Active Discovery services authentication ensures secure access to the Kaizala Management Portal, where IT administrators can control membership of all groups, remove users in one instance and control user access to sensitive data. Microsoft Kaizala maintains user privacy and stores data in Azure datacenters that adhere to the industry standards for security and compliance.

Many frontline workers don’t have their own company email address or access to internal tools, which makes it hard for managers to share and collect important information. Microsoft Kaizala enables managers to easily reach very large numbers of users within and outside their organization, using a simple and intuitive chat interface. Organizations can broadcast information – such as announcements, photos, videos, or documents, collect data from the field hrough polls and surveys and see real-time analytics as results come in.

“Most businesses work with several partners, distributors, and stakeholders who are not on the company’s email address list, so communication can be slow and unsecure,” said Bertrand Launay, Managing Director, Microsoft Philippines.

“With Microsoft Kaizala, they can better connect and coordinate with the entire team. As internet usage increases, we believe it will be easier for organizations to communicate with all their stakeholders, wherever they are in the Philippines.”

Microsoft Philippines also announced the launch of its enterprise version, Microsoft Kaizala Pro that allows organizations to have full administrative control of their groups. Microsoft Kaizala Pro has additional features that include user and group management system integration and automation using Microsoft Kaizala APIs, advanced reporting and analytics, ability to publish custom actions, ability to create public groups and organizational profile and directory.
