Organizations across verticals are recognizing the power of advanced products and services in collaboration space. “It is a highly competitive market with a move towards convergence and tighter integrations between systems, and a strong focus on mobile-enabled platforms,” says Ted Katagi, CEO, Kenja Corporation. In order to fulfill the requirements of today’s market, Tokyo, Japan-based Kenja Corporation emphasizes on enhancing communications and collaboration platform through its incessant innovations. The company offers simple to use, customizable, and configurable visual user interface which is easy to integrate with products and services.

Having extensive expertise in collaboration landscape with a leadership team comprising of C-level executives from some of the largest organizations in the world, Katagi delineates, “People are becoming more social and want to be able to easily share ideas and conversations.” The collaborations market is geared up for mobile-enabled social meeting solutions with a steady growth and advancements in video conferencing technologies. To remain in sync with this new market trend, Kenja Corporation is expanding its mobile platform to build a new product for businesses to organize and hold meetings and brainstorms to share ideas with each other.

Kenja Corporation’s collaboration tool—Kenja Rooms— can be easily configured for numerous business functions such as intranet, project management, marketing, and Learning Management. “Kenja Rooms enables users to easily upload, organize, search and share the latest content with team members when configured into a Content-centric Enterprise Intranet,” says Katagi.

From finding and sharing data within the company to collaborating intuitively and achieving concrete results, Kenja Rooms is a powerful new way for organizations to achieve their goals. Kenja Rooms differentiates itself from existing providers with a visual user interface and an extensive API Services Layer. “Our visual user interface is consistent with consumer trends for visual information content presented in attractive card design formats that are popularized by social media platforms,” says Katagi. These Kenja Rooms consists of Tiles and each Tile contains a document, file, image, video, website links, tasks, and comments. “A Tile will generate thumbnails for uploaded content, and users can annotate and collaborate on documents, files, and images without downloading them to their computers,” explains Katagi.

Kenja Rooms can be deployed in the cloud and behind the enterprise firewall, with some customers preferring to white label Kenja as a joint offering to their customer base. Using its API Services, customers can easily integrate specific services (e.g. Real Time Video and Voice, Note Taking, Whiteboard, Document Annotation) into existing systems. In addition, Kenja has built connectors to link with enterprise and cloud services such as Microsoft SharePoint, Google Drive, and Dropbox.

Kenja Corporation has customers from some of the world's largest companies in Insurance, Banking, Transportation, and Logistics. To throw light on the advantages of Kenja Rooms,TEDxMarunouchiWomen, an official TEDx event, required a powerful event management system. The organizers approached Kenja Corporation looking for a solution that can help them carry out a number of activities such as registration, logistics, planning, budgeting, and marketing.
