Instant Business Communication Made Possible on the Apple Watch
Avaamo, a provider of mobile solutions designed to reinvent the way businesses communicate in today's mobile-first world, has today announced the first secure business messaging app developed specifically for the Apple Watch.
The Avaamo for Apple Watch has been approved by Apple and will now be available to download from the App Store in conjunction with the launch of the Apple Watch on 24 April 2015.
This will come as exciting news to enterprise users of mobile technology that are looking for ways to leverage the exciting wearable devices which are beginning to gain momentum in the market.
The Avaamo app combines an optimised user experience with enterprise-grade security, data protection and administration capabilities. Among the key features are the ability to speak into the watch to convert speech into text and send or reply to messages instantly. Users can also view files, pictures, videos and other content on their smartphones simply by tapping the two devices together, and can monitor conversations in the Apple Watch Glance interface.
"Working closely with Apple helped us define the interaction model for secure messaging experience on the Apple Watch," said Ram Menon, CEO and Co-Founder of Avaamo. "Instead of building a stripped-down phone application, the Apple Watch gave us an opportunity to re-think human interaction from the ground up. We have tremendous interest from our customers and users in the enterprise community who believe wrist-mounted technology will improve productivity and safety at workplace."
