Infotech Lead India: Citrix Podio Chat is set to help Indian enterprises.
Citrix, announcing the launch of Podio Chat enabling instant messaging, cited the following benefits.
The addition of one-to-one and group instant messaging (IM), as well as one-to-one video and audio chat enables enterprises to benefit by instantly connecting.
Key benefits of Citrix Podio Chat
First, Indian enterprises can get responses and make decisions faster by connecting whole company and/or team. Podio Chat lets team members see who’s online and available to chat – including displaying time zone information – granting immediate access to people in users’ core teams as well as coworkers across the wider organization, helping to ease business silos and connecting dispersed teams like never before.
Second, Indian enterprises can ensure unify communications on Podio by enabling teams to communicate in different ways to get work done, all without email or third-party communication tools. Users can message one-on-one or in a group, use audio-only chat for quick discussions, hold one-to-one ad-hoc video meetings as needed, comment and “like” status messages, tasks and projects. To stop receiving IMs, users can simply close the chat pane and messages will divert to the Podio inbox.
As a third benefit, Citrix says power mobile workstyles and enable dispersed teams to chat from any iOS or Android device, anywhere, anytime, with Podio’s mobile apps for Android, iPhone and iPad. Switch between computers and mobile devices with ease, continue chat sessions on the go and never miss the chance to connect with a teammate.
Indian enterprises can retain information, discussion history and ideas while easing the pain of having “too many tools” for collaboration. Use Podio Chat instead of email and third-party chat services, save conversations, files and decisions in one place and make use of message search to surface information you need, whenever you need it.
In addition, Indian enterprises can share files seamlessly and instantly as needed from all Podio-connected file-sharing services, including: Sharefile, Google Drive, Sugarsync, Dropbox, Box, Microsoft SkyDrive, UbuntoOne and YouSendIt.
