Microsoft launched the Kaizala app last year in India to provide a seamless mobile collaboration experience. It is designed for large group communications and work management. Today, Microsoft announced that they are bringing digital payments services on Kaizala by integrating the payment services of YES BANK and MobiKwik. This new integration will enable users to quickly send or receive money without having to leave the Kaizala app.
With Microsoft Kaizala, users have the option to make peer to peer payments in one to one and group chat conversations via the MobiKwik wallet and via YES BANK’s state-of-the-art Unified Payment Interface (UPI) integration.
This new feature will enable organizations to disburse micro-payments, enable bill expense re-imbursements, and pay travel allowances on the go.
Rajiv Kumar, Corporate Vice President, Office Product Group, Microsoft, said, “When we launched Microsoft Kaizala for India in July 2017, we provided consumers as well as businesses with a secure chat platform to collaborate and be productive, on the go. Microsoft Kaizala is used by thousands of organizations across different industry verticals for their day-to-day workflows today and is growing. Payment transactions within the app was a key demand from our users for getting work done and we are happy to offer it today in collaboration with YES Bank and MobiKwik.”
Ritesh Pai, Chief Digital Officer, YES BANK, said, “YES BANK has been a pioneer in UPI and we have emerged as a leader in the UPI ecosystem by leveraging our strategic partnerships, as well as the Bank’s first-of-its-kind API Banking Solution. We are glad to collaborate with Microsoft Kaizala and bring seamless payments to businesses and users by employing our state-of-the-art UPI Platform. The addition of payments makes Microsoft Kaizala an even more compelling platform for collaboration.”
