Kaizala was originally started as a Microsoft Garage project. The Government of Andhra Pradesh was one of the first government organizations in India to use Kaizala for real time governance. Today, more than 30 government departments and over 70,000 users in the AP State Government use Microsoft Kaizala for day-to-day work. Realizing its potential, Microsoft officially launched Kaizala as a standalone product offering in India in July last year.
Kaizala is a mobile-only product designed for large group communications and work management. It enables organizations to seamlessly communicate, collaborate and complete tasks, bringing together desktop users and mobile-only users who may be within or outside their organizations. Microsoft Kaizala users can simply get connected using their mobile phone numbers as their primary unique ID. For businesses which need more control, Microsoft is announcing the launch of its enterprise version, Kaizala Pro that allows them to have full administrative control of their groups.
In its latest update, the application now supports Bangla on both iOS and Android, with the Prime Minister’s Office in Bangladesh already a user of the app.
