Mumbai, India, November 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Remindo (www.remindo.com), a web-based, customizable Intranet service was released to the general public after a private beta phase.
Remindo.com belongs to a wave of 'Social Business Software' that share user experience philosophies with popular consumer sites and take them to the workplace.
On Remindo, users create an intranet for their company by signing up. When other co-workers sign up, they are automatically added to the same company's intranet. These users can then invite external people like clients, partners or freelancers into their intranet for streamlined collaboration.
Once an intranet is created, users can use their own company logos to brand their intranet. They can also claim a secure, customized URL for their company intranet as well. This is especially useful for small businesses and freelancers as it helps them appear organized and professional to clients.
The heart of the user interface is a “share” space that people can use to post status updates, hold discussions, share links or ask questions; much like on leading social networking sites. “Most such software fail to click with users because they need to learn something new, but Remindo has an environment they are already familiar with and this puts them immediately at ease”, explained Prateek Dubey from Remindo.
All events appear in a live activity feed that keeps users updated on what is happening in their company. This improves visibility of work progress across departments and teams, and everyone can stay in the loop without a deluge of emails.
Each intranet gets 3 GB of free storage space and also project collaboration tools like instant messenger, discussion threads, shared team calendars, milestones and task lists.
Files of up to 200 MB each can be uploaded or attached to discussion threads. Since email cannot support files of this size, Remindo acts like an extranet by making it possible for teams to share such files with their clients. This proves valuable to designers and advertising agencies because they can now keep their intellectual property on their private intranet without having to rely on external transfer services.
While anyone can sign up and start an intranet for their company, Remindo only accepts valid company email addresses. “Maintaining privacy is of paramount importance to any business so this permission based approach not only filters out unwanted people but also make intranets on Remindo, spam and malware free”, explained, Rehan Yar Khan, Founder and CEO of Remindo.
Security on these intranets is ensured by VeriSign SSL certification and each intranet gets a secure, fully https web address.
Unlike traditional enterprise software that need expensive installations, constant IT support and training, Remindo is based on the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model and uses Amazon Web Services. This means people can just sign up and start using their intranet from a web browser like any other website. Rehan explained, “Remindo was built to help businesses and freelancers save time and make more money without creating yet another IT related headache or compromising on security or privacy.”
With its social network sensibilities and powerful collaboration tools on board, Remindo helps tackle in a fresh way, the reigning irony of modern businesses: managers with overflowing email inboxes getting lost in the team communication they helped create.
Remindo is currently free for unlimited projects and users and upto 3GB of storage space. Paid and enhanced services on Remindo will be released soon, but all early users will get free access to them; so now is a good time to sign up.
