Podio's Work Platform Available in Seven Languages on Web, iPhone and Android

Company Expands Global Reach to Workers Across Europe and Brazil

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK--(Marketwire - Jan 30, 2012) - Podio, the replacement for all your project management software and collaboration tools, now has translations in seven different languages; German, English, French, Danish and Spanish, including two new translations in Brazilian Portuguese and Italian. All language translations are also now available in Podio's Android and iPhone apps.

With employees from 14 different countries across its San Francisco and Copenhagen offices, Podio's DNA is inherently global. Less than a year after its launch, Podio is already used in more than 170 countries by internationally dispersed, multilingual teams, making language translations a key priority in expanding the service and meeting the needs of its international users.

"It takes a global team to reach the global workforce," said Podio CEO Tommy Ahlers. "Our goal is to empower as many workers as possible, all over the world, to build their own work tools, work the way they want to and be more productive."

Podio customer IZO operates in six countries, with more than 200 professionals speaking three languages -- Spanish, Portuguese and English.

"Podio not only facilitates the relationships and communication between our employees in any part of the world, it's the core of our knowledge management, allowing us to create specific spaces for our clients, centralize communications and, more importantly, integrate them in the day-to-day of our IZO community," said Jose Antonio Iglesias, chief financial officer of customer experience management company IZO. "With Podio in Portuguese, we'll be able to collaborate with our clients in Brazil and extend Podio to the rest of our employees in their mother language."

Podio offers core features like document sharing, activity streams, task management, contacts, reporting, webforms and calendaring, as well as a simple but powerful app-builder. Using drag-and-drop functionality, Podio users can create purpose-built apps for project management, lead management, business development, HR, communications and anything else they are working on.

Since launching in March 2011 Podio has won the TechCrunch Europas Award for Best Business Startup and added thousands of new organizations to its platform. To date, more than 45,000 apps have been created or modified from Podio's free App Store.
