Convo Launches Next-Gen Mobile App for Growing Mobile Workforce

New Features, Design & Interface to Equip Employees With the Tools Required to Do Their Job Effectively, From Wherever and on Any Device

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2015) - Convo, the leading enterprise-ready mobile messaging and collaboration platform, today announced the all-new mobile iOS and Android versions of its next-gen collaboration platform. This announcement follows the recent launch of the web and desktop app and further highlights Convo's mission of simplifying work conversations for large, globally distributed organizations.

"It's expected that by 2018, 50% of all team communication and collaboration will happen on mobile apps. We are already seeing that trend with current users, as more than 40% of teams in large organizations primarily use Convo on mobile," said Convo CEO Faizan Buzdar. "I take great pride in the fact that we have built both a web and mobile collaboration platform that companies can utilize to unearth even greater opportunities for efficiencies across their organizations. There is nothing stopping them from doing everything in Convo mobile -- from casual chats to file collaboration to profile settings and key decision-making."

The new Convo mobile app is now available for download on the App Store and Google Play.

New Convo for mobile
Convo has taken a mobile-first approach in building a platform that delivers a phenomenal experience for the connected and always in-control worker. This app is not just a companion to the web/desktop app but has features and functionality designed specifically for the mobile workforce.

  • User-friendly redesign - Based on the same premise as the web app, the new mobile app is much more beautiful, intuitive and interactive.
  • Instant search - It now takes just moments to search for a specific conversation, document or post. Start typing and Convo instantly brings you search results from all your posts, links, chat messages, or groups.
  • Easy sharing - You can add Convo to the iOS share sheet and easily share photos or links with your team, directly from other apps.
  • Manage user profile - Editing and managing profiles via mobile is super simple. Modify your contact info, update your picture and bio with a few taps.
  • Custom notifications - Control when and how you would like to be notified of important activities in your network.
  • In-app notifications - Quickly review all important conversations, updates, and required actions from the new notification center.
  • Enhanced group management - Set privacy and permissions for new groups or edit previous group settings from within your mobile app.

Enterprise security
Convo's desktop and mobile platforms have the highest level of bank-grade security enterprise organizations require as they adapt to the way Generation Y wants and expects to work, which is 'mobile.' In addition to at-rest encryption and ediscovery, Convo also provides network administrators the most advanced controls over user management, data and IP domains on the network.

"We are delivering significant enhancements across both iOS and Android platforms with this release," Faizan added. "Even though iOS is the overwhelming platform of choice for majority of our customers with Executives using Convo on iOS 75% of the time (technical roles have slightly higher usage of Android), our focus is to simplify team communication irrespective of the mobile platform they use."
