I’m involved with a VC funded startup based in Scottsdale, AZ that’s trying to innovate it’s way to the first fundamental change to email in the last 20 years. We’ve designed a product best described as “Collaborative Email” that builds on the app most used by business people – email – and adds in task management and collaborative tools. Here’s a brief description from the website:
“Collaborative email is email built for the way we work today. No more trying to make your current email do task management, file management and group collaboration. No more being forced to use single-point solutions to accomplish what traditional email can’t.
Contatta is a complete re-imagining of what email should be. Shared contacts, tasks, files and collaboration tools are built right into your email, the center of where you spend your day. The result is you and your team drastically reduce the amount of time spent in the inbox, and spend more time working on the things that move your business forward.”
The initial response from Press and Analysts has been very encouraging, I’ll keep you posted. Learn more about Collaborative Email at http://Contatta.com and sign up for a free trial that will be available soon.
