Marking the International Mother Language Day, Microsoft, has introduced the Bangla version of ‘Microsoft Kaizala’, a mobile app designed for large group communication, work management, reporting, and analytics, as a pilot project.

Kaizala is designed to optimize productivity in a world with intelligent cloud and intelligent edge, particularly in the emerging markets. The app, which has a simple chat user interface, allows up to 5 million people to join one group and allows users to communicate in a structured way. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in Bangladesh has already started using Microsoft Kaizala in its pilot projects.

Rajiv Kumar, Corporate Vice-President, Office Product Group, Microsoft, said “The Bangla version of Kaizala app was specifically localized for the country considering the potential we foresee in terms of unlocking economic opportunities through digital transformation and realizing the government’s vision towards a Digital Bangladesh overcoming the language barrier.

With Kaizala, unique capabilities like its ability to connect a large number of people through a simple chat interface, work seamlessly in even offline, collect data on-the-go using surveys and polls, skilling through simple mobile-based training, managing tasks and meetings over messaging will enable everyone to have structured yet convenient communications among the community.

Sonia Bashir Kabir, Managing Director of Microsoft Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Laos, said, “We have been working in partnership with the government on many initiatives supporting its Digital Bangladesh vision through making Microsoft’s technology available to government organizations. Piloting Kaizala in the local language will unlock massive digital opportunities breaking the language barriers as Bangladesh is home to 160 million Bangla speaking people. We are already working with Young Bangla, the country’s largest youth engagement platform, as partners in women and youth empowerment through spreading digital literacy and taking the Digital Bangladesh movement forward. To date, Microsoft has trained over 20,000 students through Sheikh Russel Digital Lab with Young Bangla, and with the introduction of Kaizala in Bangla, the plans are underway to further strengthen and scale this program with the help of robust and structured chat features of the app.”

This app is now available in Bengali for both iOS and Android. Interested users are welcome to download Microsoft Kaizala from this link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/kaizala/install .
