Yesterday was an exciting day as we celebrated the announcement (Thanks to Memeburn)of what we’ve been doing over the past three years. The public announcement of JamiiX (Meaning “Social Exchange”) as a new Web 2.0 product that has been developed on the Cape Flats in Silicon Cape would prove to be more than just an average aggregator for Social Networks and Instant Messengers but will come with a little dash of colourfulness that will certainly change communication channels using Web 2.0.
JamiiX is a Web based tool providing organizations/ businesses/ government/ individuals to manage multiple conversations from different Social Media, Text Messaging and various Instant Messaging platforms. Some benefits using JamiiX are:
1.Lower Cost to User
3.Communication is easy as the users use mediums that they are comfortable with
4.Manage multiple conversations at a time.
5.Reach audience on both PC and mobile devices
6.Counselors or Advisors are able to provide support via JamiiX remotely using an internet connection.
7.Easy setup and low cost to operate.
MoVigo Technologies (Pty) Ltd. have taken the task of commercialising possible the first Cape Flats Community-Driven Innovation from the ground to a global product. Already with business partners and offices in the United Kingdom, Malaysia and Finland along with its strategic partners Reconstructed Living Lab (RLabs),MXit Lifestyle and ISLabs, JamiiX could well be a technology startup fairytale encouraging open collaboration with communities in developing innovative solutions. MoVigo Technologies has already acquired some seed funding (R1.4 million) from SAFIPA (SOUTH AFRICA – FINLAND KNOWLEDGE PARTNERSHIP ON ICT PROGRAMME) with the goal of establishing JamiiX as an international brand.
