This “WhatsApp for the workplace” app named Cotap is giving now the possibility to receive a message on Cotap.me via a URL without having to actually download the app.
Basically, this app helps work colleagues to communicate between them without having to share any phone number. Here is the statement of it`s co-founder, Jim Patterson “Cotap.me is an easy way to make yourself instantly accessible to all of your business contacts, without needing to share your personal phone number or ask anyone to download a separate app. It’s a fast, convenient way to start a conversation or expedite an issue that is stuck in email”.
There are a few apps on the market right now that are based on a web interface which lets people interact with clients. But these apps are focused on the consumer and not on the enterprise users. This new feature of Cotap has the mission to focus on the enterprise rather than the consumer. It raised about $15.5 million from Emergence Capital Partners and CRV.
