WhatsApp for Work: This App May Change the Way You Communicate With Co-workers

By far, the easiest and most efficient way to communicate in 2014 is via text. But, unless you have all 50 of your closest co-workers’ numbers saved in your phone and really want to bridge that personal-professional barrier, you probably don’t use it much in the office.

Until now.

Cotap, a new app that’s akin to WhatsApp for the workplace, is a quick, casual, and secure way to text with your co-workers—but with the comfort of knowing your conversations are separated from your personal messages.

[post_ads]Available for iOS and Android, the app lets you send one-on-one or group text messages to anyone with your company’s email domain. So, when you want to give your comrade in accounting a heads up that you’ll be five minutes late for a meeting or ask your team member to remind you what the conference line access code is, now you can do so with a quick text—without even knowing their phone numbers.

Best of all, there’s little setup required—your co-workers automatically appear in a global company contact list as soon as they download and join the app. And not to worry about Fran in finance not wanting to use a newfangled app—anyone at your company without Cotap can participate in conversations via email.

Cotap is free for individuals, if you want to give it a whirl before selling your boss on it. From there, pricing is tiered depending on team size.

Tell us! Have you tried Cotap? What do you think?
