Chookka - Simple Conversation Tool for Everyone

They started with a simple idea – everyone should be able to communicate smarter. Specifically, they set out to solve the problem of inbox overload, reducing time lost processing and searching for emails. Taking their collective knowledge as computer science and language experts - all three of them are computer science Ph.D.’s – with international scientific publications and patents relating computational linguistics, data mining and search, they created Chookka. Knowing that the average person spends 28 percent of our work week or 13 hours a week reading and responding to email according to a report from the McKinsey Global Institute, they want to increase productivity for anyone who uses email. A study in 2007 revealed that a group of Microsoft workers took, on average, 15 minutes to return to serious mental tasks after responding to incoming e-mail or instant messages. By providing a system to keep conversations organized so all communication is contextual, Chookka reduces time wasted from going through emails in your inbox. They added other cool features like the ability to view all shared files in a conversation in one place. They believe that by integrating the best of email (sharing files, images, videos, and creating groups, subgroups) and social media (using # and @) and introducing the ‘&’, the first symbol to designate a conversation, Chookka is a simple yet powerful tool for conversations.
