(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Teamchat, the app that has changed enterprise mobile messaging forever, today has been charged with the murder of “Reply All,” the email feature that inundated inboxes and bogged down business communications across the globe. Reply All was found strangled by a queue of thousands of messages left unanswered.
Police have strong evidence against Teamchat:
For years, Reply All generated clutter, impacting businesses and flooding messaging platforms with innumerable emails, text messages, alerts and notifications. Searching for an aggregate view of team activity – total sales for the day, call reports and other critical information – became a nuisance, if not an impossible task. Finding the newest version of an edited document or uncovering the status on a project became the proverbial needle in a haystack. Witnesses say Teamchat simply couldn’t take it anymore and just “snapped.”
“I think Teamchat just did what everyone else was thinking,” said one witness. “Standard business communication options, especially Reply All, were driving us crazy. It was only a matter of time before someone got rid of them for good.”
Teamchat, invented by Elance founder Beerud Sheth, eliminates clutter with organized, structured and smart enterpr ise mobile messaging. Intelligently streamlining communications, the app groups conversations by subject, tallies votes, aggregates sales figures and even prioritizes messages and alerts in an instant. Chat and video applications within Teamchat enable an unlimited number of people to communicate at once while providing a clean means of business communication without reduction of quality, something Reply All could never do.
Sheth, a pioneer in Web 2.0 corporate services, has no regrets about the monster he created.
“Look, I feel bad for Reply All, but it was holding the world back. Everyone, including Teamchat, knew it. Teamchat was just the one willing to get its hands dirty. With Reply All out of the picture, businesses can communicate more effectively and securely without the chaotic nature of other messaging apps.”
Police are allowing reporters to question Sheth at this time to learn more. Teamchat is still at large in both the iOS and Android app stores. Please report any information you have on Teamchat to the appropriate authorities.
