A subsidiary of Econet Global, Cassava Fintech International (CFI) has announced the release of a voice and video conferencing service called ‘Sasai TeamTalk’, a channel that allows up to 20 people on one call at a time.
This service which came at the time when many countries have imposed restriction on the movement of people to limit the spread of Coronavirus will be accessible through Sasai.
The Cassava Fintech Sasai invention an all-in-one super App that will allow user pay, chat and explore an enormous collection of services and content.
Announcing the new service, the Cassava Fintech International CEO, Darlington Mandivenga said “We believe the timing of this mobile conferencing service could not have been more appropriate. Families, communities, social groups such as religious organizations, industries and nations have been impacted by COVID-19 pandemic. Lockdowns, working from home and social distancing have been introduced as some of the measures to stem the spread of the virus and flattern the curve.”
Mandivenga said Sasai TeamTalk will offer free voice and video conference service with secure end-to-end encryption that will connect up to 20 people on a single call, compared to Telcoms and most other social media platforms that offer between five and eight people on a conference call.
He added that for businesses, lockdown should not mean shut down and panel meetings must still take place if efficiency is to be maintained. And for families, friends and community groups, social distancing should not mean that they should stop ‘seeing’ themselves or stop talking to themselves. The use of Sasai TeamTalk conferencing service on the super application helps to stay connected and to stay productive.
You will recall that Sasai which was launched in August 2019 is already being used in 180 countries across the world, including every African country.
The App also offers a unique in-app language translator service with over 80 languages, 50 of which are African languages.
The Cassava Fintech International CEO said the improvement of Sasai TeamTalk offering “possibly the largest meeting room any social media platform can offer” was motivated by the need to accomplish business continuity and to “close the distance” created by social distancing.
Mandivenga said “Sasai TeamTalk offers a platform where families, friends and even religious groups can get together and interact freely, wherever they maybe even across continents.”
The Sasai super App which allows up to 250 people in a chat group bringing families closer by allowing international remittances from the United Kingdom, European Union and South Africa to over 30 countries across the world at the lowest fees available.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, businesses are expected to use their assets and proficiency to help fight the worldwide deadly disease. And also pitch in employees, teachers, students and other professional workers working from home has resulted in a sharp command for digital ‘telecommuting’ tools such as video and voice conferencing, chat systems and online collaboration.
Sasai Team Talk also allows multiple users to work together and chat virtually from anywhere in the world while staying knowledgeable and up to date with the latest news and information on the Sasai’s Explore feature.
To access and immediately use Sasai TeamTalk, you must download the Sasai super App on the Google Play store or the Apple App Store, start a chat and simply click on the voice or video camera icon.
Users of Sasai TeamTalk can among other things swap between the front and rear-facing camera, end the call when they are done by tapping the red phone button, mute the call.
Sasai Chief Operating Officer, Tapera Mushoriwa said “The Sasai TeamTalk feature was developed to address a critical need in the market. It sits in the all-in-one super App to provide users with efficient data usage compared to the use of separate, multiple apps.”
Mushoriwa said Sasai will be adding more features to TeamTalk in the coming weeks.
