Perzonae Aims to Vastly Improve on Apps Like Outlook or MSN
AMERSFOORT, The Netherlands, April 8 /CNW/ - The new Dutch Internet
communication service Perzonae is ready to compete with major international
software companies like Microsoft, Google and Apple in the coming years.
Today, Perzonae Unified Communications launches a innovative service that
allows people to combine emails, chats, and later, calls and teleconferencing,
in a more efficient manner, regaining control of their Internet
communications. Less management, less junk, fewer distractions and
interruptions, all saving users more time.
"We have calculated that an average Perzonae user saves 36 minutes each
day. Annually that's fifteen days; a complete vacation," says Chris Troost of
Perzonae Unified Communications. According to founder and technical lead Paul
Sijben, Perzonae is the salvation from the communication overload people are
exposed to on the Internet. He and his team see Perzonae eventually replacing
services like Outlook, Thunderbird, MSN, Hotmail or Gmail. "Our frustration
with these services triggered the idea," Troost explains.
Perzonae expects knowledge workers who like to try out new software - the
so-called life hackers - to be the first to download the new software. Their
number is estimated at 50 million worldwide. The new Internet service
functions differently from most communication applications, using Zones in
which the user creates different identities, e.g. a Zone for business, spare
time or private communications. If you don't want to be disturbed by private
messages or calls during work, you can shut off that Zone and view these
messages later on. Perzonae funnels unwanted messages to Zones that are rarely
viewed, neatly handling spam and email-overload at work.
"It's a single sign-on service that's always up to date across your
devices. It combines e-mail, chat, and in the future phoning or
videoconferencing. Unlike other programs we communicate from human to human,
not from computer to computer," Troost says.
The service is available as of today and can be downloaded from their
website at http://www.perzonae.com.
