CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 2, 2012) - Kudos Inc. (Kudos) announced today they have added several new features to their service including a smartphone-friendly browser edition for iOS (iPhone), Android and Windows Mobile, and a Spanish version for the Latin American market.
The new features enhance the recognition engine and expand the social network functionality to improve customization, communication and collaboration. The most significant addition is the ability to send Kudos outside of your corporate network, so that any Kudos user can thank and recognize their clients, suppliers, contractors and business partners.
"Everyone appreciates a 'thank you'," said Tom Short, Kudos Co-CEO. "When you receive a Kudos message it makes a big impact, and now with the ability to thank anyone, Kudos has become an even more powerful tool for business."
Kudos' mobile web application expands the reach and effectiveness of the engagement platform. Even individuals on-the-go can now feel connected to their company and team. Kudos Mobile makes the recognition social network a more complete product that can be utilized by any business.
In addition to the mobile offering, the launch of Spanish Kudos has opened the doors for recognition and engagement in Latin America. In a recent survey by Aon Hewitt on "Global Trends in Employee Engagement," recognition once again ranked as one of the most important engagement drivers in Latin America, more than in any other region in the world. Spanish Kudos addresses a key need for all Latin American employers.
"A 'thank you' should be able to cross borders as well as cultures. We envision Kudos as the global currency of recognition in business and personal life," commented Muni Boga, Kudos Co-CEO. "We currently have companies signing onto Kudos from six continents. Our vision to change the world one thank you at a time is becoming a reality."
