Zula, a unified communications and collaboration mobile platform, has been accepted into Frost & Sullivan’s Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) Community and Global Congress.

A cross-platform mobile app, Zula enables teams to manage a task without needing to sit in front of a computer. By incorporating all elements of the average work flow, including file-sharing, group and one-on-one messaging, Zulu can offer a seamless on-boarding process and one-touch conference calling for an entire team.

Zula aims to help companies and teams engage, communicate and collaborate more easily, enbling internal and external employees and partners to contribute from anywhere. For example, users can share and review documents, links, images, and URLs; conduct real-time polls; hold open cahts and dialogues for group or private discussions; instantly launch VoIP calls or teleconferences; and send smartphone push notifications.

Brian Denker, vice president and global head of growth, innovation and leadership for Frost & Sullivan said, “We are delighted to be able to continue to welcome such pioneers like Jeff and Jacob to our growing community and advisory board.” Jeff Pulver and Jacob Ner-David are the co-creators of Zula.

“We are not just excited about how ’cool’ of a mobile application it is, but are very inspired by what the application itself represents and the ability to showcase this year's GIL theme ‘Disrupt, Collapse and Transform’ in a real-world technology innovation such as Zula, which we believe will radically change the way global businesses communicate, collaborate, and partner irrespective of geographic boundaries." Denker added.

Frost & Sullivan’s GIL community has added Zula into its Growth Alliance Partnership as a growth solution provider. Frost & Sullivan GIL Global Management, the Zula team, and  fellow Growth Alliance Partner Lenos Software will thus come together to launch a “GIL-only” conference version of the mobile application in Dubai, UAE on February 26th, 2014.

The new solution will be available as an integrated on-site mobile application and tool at all Frost & Sullivan GIL Global Congresses around the globe. It is expected to enhance the onsite GIL experience for conference delegates by delivering an optimized communications and collaborations solution.
