Mumbai, 26th February, 2016: Flock the enterprise communication and collaboration app by the Directi Group, garnered a ton of interest at the recently concluded SURGE Conference and Exhibition. Flock’s new features created quite a buzz across the conference among both startups and the tech community.
The Flock team used the SURGE event that was held in Bengaluru on 23rd and 24th February as a platform to showcase the new and improved Flock client with features such as video conferencing, screen sharing, to-do lists, polls and file sharing. The event was a roaring success for Flock, as it helped garner instant feedback from the market for the new features of the product, as well as getting a whole set of new adopters.
Among the attendees, the developers were particularly interested in Flock’s new ‘Webhooks’ - a tool that enables communication between Flock and an app or service in real time. A notable feature that won Flock accolades was its slick, clutter free and easy to use interface and its unparalleled user experience across devices and platforms.
Bhavin Turakhia, CEO and Co Founder, Flock said, “Web Summit needs no introduction, and we are extremely happy to participate and exhibit Flock in the first edition of SURGE. It is undoubtedly the epicenter of the finest entrepreneurial and tech minds, and we are glad that we got to showcase Flock to them. Many organizations are yet to realize the true potential of enterprise messaging and collaborative tools like Flock, and we wanted to reach out to them and create an impact. Flock managed to get a lot of attention and support from the tech community, which is a great achievement for the team”.
Web Summit, one of the most influential tech and startup events globally, launched its Indian edition as SURGE 2016. The summit saw convergence of some of the biggest and most influential names from the startup and tech communities from India and abroad. In its inaugural year, SURGE received over 5,000 attendees from more than 72 countries. Flock participated as an exhibitor, and got the opportunity to engage with an overwhelming number of attendees on both days of the conference.
Flock has recently added new features including Video Conferencing, To-dos, Polls, Code Snippet sharing and Webhooks to allow fast moving teams to collaborate efficiently.
