Starting today, Convofy becomes available to everyone. Convofy is the most powerful private social network for your company. To sign up, all you need is your work email and you get set up in less than 60 seconds. The mobile web app is available at convo.com/m and runs on any modern mobile browser.
This is fresh out of the oven, and we will be aggressively pushing updates in the coming months, ironing out kinks, fixing bugs and rolling out some more features. Today the free version is available to everyone and the next major update from us, rolling out within this month, will include the premium version that enables administrative features for paid accounts.
So what is Convofy? Convofy makes it easy for you to stay on top of what is happening at work in real-time, share important information and content with your team, plan and delegate tasks and easily find relevant information and people within your organization. We think that’s pretty great, but Convofy does more than letting you share messages and status updates with your team. We are very very excited to introduce a brand new, never-seen-before collaboration experience that completely revolutionizes your work discussions.
We have reinvented the simple comment. Our comments carry more meaning. Each comment can now carry deep context about what you are discussing, attached in its metadata. Why is that important? Simply because people don’t think in words alone. Some research shows that only 25% of the world thinks exclusively in words (we find that 25% number a little exaggerated). The vast majority of people use, or need visual memory, cues, situational understanding for everyday sense-making.
People who follow you should be able to actually see what you are talking about. They should be able to almost see through your eyes while they process your comment. Collaboration experiences should closely emulate pulling a chair up to someone and talking face to face. This is what Convofy tries to recreate.
The Next Web has a very detailed post, and TechCrunch, ReadWriteWeb and GigaOM all have written great posts about the launch already. Thank you guys for taking the time to play with the application and writing about it.
We’d love to know what you think.
