Japan-based communication platform for businesses, ChatWork, turns two years old today. It is a cloud-based solution for people to collaboratively do task and file management in a way that’s compatible on multiple devices. It’s somewhat in the same space as Yammer and Chatter.
In celebration of its birthday, ChatWork revealed some pretty impressive figures. Company representative Shuhei Tanigawa says that ChatWork has signed up more than 150,000 users since it launched in March 2011.
Some of its clients include KDDI, ZOHO, and Keio University. The company revealed that more than 30,000 users log on to ChatWork every day, with 71 million messages sent altogether so far. It also claims that the paid conversion rate is more than double that of Dropbox or Evernote.
To tackle the Southeast Asia market, ChatWork has partnered exclusively with Malifax Technologies to distribute its product in Southeast Asia. Founded in 1985, Malifax Technologies has over 600 business accounts in Southeast Asia. When asked about profitability, Tanigawa told me:
As a company we are already profitable enough to drive business. The partnership with KDDI is going good and our marketing effort is working good in terms of getting new customers. Percentage [of paid users] is growing and we strongly feel this is the reflection of market needs.
ChatWork also added in a new feature that allows its users to look for and add friends through their Facebook connections.
