Once you register (integrated with Google Apps), you can add your employees/create projects/Tasks/Repositories etc) – the company even has built few relevant applications like Employee Recognition, Birthday Gifts and most importantly apps across devices (they have desktop application as well as iPhone, Android, Blackberry and iPad apps).
The US based based company (with Product Management/Engineering office in Pune) recently launched new features like enterprise grade micro-streams, instant messaging and group messaging capabilities to single click updates. What’s commendable is the way team has modularized the product, especially feature based pricing plans – one of a very few À La Carte models one gets to see.
You can buy the complete suite or individual modules like MangoTalk (microblogging), MongoDocs (document management), MongoTask (Task Management) to MongoProjects, MongoIdeas and MongoEvents.
The product is free for 10 users and offers following features
- Enterprise Grade Microstreams, Instant Messaging and Presence: MangoApps seamlessly combine business social networking with enterprise-grade Instant Messaging to enable open and immediate communication. With MangoApps 2.0, teams can now instantly start group chats or conference calls from directly within any of the MangoApps applications.
- Comprehensive Deployment Support: MangoApps supports all three major deployment models: multi-tenant SaaS (fully outsourced), single-tenant SaaS (your own instance of MangoApps), and on-premise (locally hosted behind a firewall), providing organizations with both the flexibility and security requirements that they demand.
- Application Modularity: MangoApps allows users to purchase applications in an a-la-carte fashion. Since many teams are not comfortable committing themselves to an entire suite of products all at once, this allows them to use just what they need and add more functionality as desired.
- Integration with Third-Party Applications: MangoApps is built on the MangoSpring Engage platform and version 2.0 makes it a snap to integrate popular third-party platforms such as Google Apps, the ability to automatically sync from the desktop, and two-way integration with email.
The team claims that the pricing is 33% cheaper than Yammer and almost 90% cheaper than Salesforce Chatter.
