INTRODUCING FLOCK: THE BUSINESS CHAT APP THAT SEPARATES YOUR WORK AND PERSONAL LIFE
Easy-to-use and completely free business chat service helps workers get stuff done and keep work and personal lives separate
September 25, 2014 (London, UK)–– Today marks the launch of business chat application Flock (http://flock.co). Flock is a completely free and simple messaging application that lets teams communicate quickly and effectively at work and eliminates the need to blend work and personal messaging tools. This means users will never again receive messages from both colleagues and friends on the same service – or worse, get mixed up between the two.
As the pace of work gets ever quicker, workers require a better way of communicating and collaborating than email and many have resorted to using personal messaging services at work, with varying degrees of success and more than a few embarrassing moments. Meanwhile,
employers are searching for ways to help their people cut down the time spent managing their inbox and instead be as productive as possible.
Flock is created for those fast moving teams and organisations. It does not require any IT administrators to set up and is the fastest and easiest way for teams to connect, share documents and communicate with each other, clients and partners across all computers and devices. Flock is always free for unlimited users and usage and is available for iOS, Android, Windows PC, Mac and Linux.
With its simple and easy-to-navigate interface, Flock provides a user-friendly way for users to chat one-to-one or in groups. Unlike popular instant messaging applications, Flock allows employees to sign in using their work email, and automatically syncs the entire office directory to every employee’s device.
“Many of the so-called communications tools out there actually create more work for the people who use them and slow them down. We are all about helping people to get stuff done and communicate effectively and enjoyably,” said Bhavin Turakhia, CEO and founder of Riva, the maker of Flock. “Flock is also completely free and has no limits on how many people use it or how many conversations are saved – no other service can say the same.”
Flock’s features include:
- Mobile and desktop applications
- File and image sharing within the application
- Group chats: create temporary or permanent groups for teams or projects
- Secure encrypted messaging
- Ability to bring third paries such as clients or partners into conversations
- Auto updated company directory
- Synced conversations across multiple devices
- Read and delivery receipts
- Unlimited chat history
- Admin interface to manage employee exits
“Flock gives employees the opportunity to chat in real time in a single place without mixing their personal and work messages,” said Ninad Rawal, Flock Product Manager. “Public instant messengers were never meant for workplace communication. Flock eliminates any chance of accidentally mixing your work or personal messages, or sending your personal ID to clients.”
Flock is available on Windows, Mac, Chrome, iOS and Android platforms worldwide. To download it, please visit flock.co or download it via the Apple App Store or Google Play.
