LONDON, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

MindLink, provider of secure Chat Enabled Collaboration (CEC) tools for global businesses, today announces the availability of its next-generation software and User Interface (UI) - redefining how messaging and chat applications for businesses is essential and cost-effective for organisations.

The redesigned messaging app makes sharing knowledge and retrieving information easier and more powerful. It enables real-time collaboration of information without ever overloading the user and allowing access to knowledge in a highly structured and customised way.

"The new software and interface has been a significant investment for MindLink. We have increased our engineering capacity by 30% and have spent 6 months, end-to-end, to make this a reality", comments Harpreet Gosal, CTO, MindLink. "Close to 50% of our annual revenue was invested in developing our new UI using the latest, cutting-edge programming platforms and technology stacks to make sure our application is future and bullet proof."

The announcement comes one year after changes in the board and management including the appointment of a new CEO. In his tenure software revenues grew 70% year-on-year, MindLink signed some major resellers and recently raised additional US$1million in funding - telling the growth story of a highly successful UK start-up and an answer to social and team messaging competitors who fail to meet corporate security and compliance standards. Today's product announcement is another step-change in MindLink's expansion plan.

"We have worked extremely closely with our corporate clients in financial services and beyond to ensure that we meet highest standards in terms of usability and functionality. It wasn't about cartoony consumer and social features, this was about corporate usability and efficiency - secure but user friendly for successful corporates", says Justin Forrest, CEO, MindLink.

Working with clients and key financial firms, MindLink has captured and incorporated feedback, ideas and efficiencies. The end product provides a visually engaging work interface on desktop and mobile, that maintains powerful enterprise level functionality: integration with internal and external systems via chatbots and connectors, regulatory compliance and some of the most advanced security features available of any chat tool on the market.

This comes on top of elevating Unified Communication platforms like Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business whose messaging functionality MindLink now significantly enhances.

MindLink, founded in 2011, is a Microsoft Gold partner and offers a fully rounded enterprise-ready messaging platform for businesses. The new interface has been released from beta and will include further major feature additions on a two-week release cycle.
