MangoSpring Launches Engage

By Jai C.S., TMCnet Contributor

MangoSpring, a provider of real-time messaging solutions, has reportedly unveiled its first social business communication product, Engage, which combines enterprise microblogging with enterprise-grade Instant Messaging.

Engage, according to the company, is a smart set of business communication and social collaboration tools to boost daily productivity. Added to the features like microblogging, follow/follower news feeds, user profiles, project team collaboration and file sharing, Engage also offers one-on-one instant messaging, group chat and presence throughout.

“Efficient employee communication is vital to every business. Over the last 15 years, employees around the world have relied on email, IM, intranets, and blogs to talk to each other, share news and information and collaborate on projects. Engage is the natural evolution of these communication and collaboration solutions. The current tools used to accomplish daily tasks don’t provide the open and immediate communication needed to conduct an efficient business,” said Anup Kejriwal, chief executive officer and founder of MangoSpring, in a release.

He clarified that all Engage networks are private and secure. Companies can control the membership to the network, customize it and manage the content posted by their users. All content (status, IM, files, profiles, projects) within Engage is securely archived and searchable.

This newly announced social business communication product is available in two Software as a Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) deployment options: shared and private and can be accessed in three ways: by web browser from any PC, by a desktop client that provides convenient, anytime access, or by a mobile client from an iPhone or an Android (News - Alert) device.

The SaaS version of Engage is offered with three pricing plans: Free, Standard and Premium editions. The Standard or Premium editions are priced at $3.99 and $4.99 per user, per month. The Premium Edition builds on the Standard Edition with more security features and the ability to add users outside the corporate email domain. The Standard and Premium Editions include enterprise-grade support.
