Convofy is a new corporate social network that strives to get businesses’ employees on the same page by introducing faster internal communications, sharing and collaboration while reducing email overload.
The latest entry into the rapidly growing social business space, the Adobe-funded startup will be going head-to-head against competitors such as Socialcast and Qontext. Convofy, however, claims to have created a new solution that enables collaboration on visual content such as images, files and Web links.
“We have re-invented the simple comment,” says Faizan Buzdar, founder and CEO of Convofy’s parent company, Scrybe. “It has never been faster or easier to discuss your images, files, docs, even Web links, and to reach decisions in an incredibly small number of cycles. Convofy’s in-context collaboration allows commenting and mark-up and lets you attach context to each comment. These comments take you to a specific section and literally point to the context.”
The Basic service is free, and the Premium service is free for the rest of the month of April. Beginning in May, Convofy Premium will cost $5 per user per month for administrative control, customization, compliance, integrations into existing solutions and priority customer service to harness the power of a company's private social network.
A recent IDC report predicts that the social business market will grow by 38 percent through 2014. For more information, view the Convofy demo.
