A software firm in Bangalore has launched a one-of-a-kind personal communication tool for your computer that carries out multiple tasks in the same software.
The software, ‘KwikTools’, brought out by the company Sysnet Associates (India) Private Limited, allows users to check multiple email accounts, send free SMSes, chat services, RSS feeds and File Transfer Protocol (uploading and downloading of files from a web server) in one single package.
Speaking to presspersons here on Wednesday, General Manager of the company, A. Krishi, claimed that it was a one-of-a-kind software which could allow people to pursue so many tasks simultaneously.
“One can send SMSes by connecting the phone to the computer or SMSes where normal rates may apply. There is also a free SMS option available,” he said.
However, sending bulk messages is unavailable in the free SMS service, due to security reasons, he added.
The tool allows you to access 12 email accounts at the same time. One difference between a regular internet browser and the software is that KwikTools allows you to access multiple email accounts in the same service (e.g. Gmail or Hotmail) which browsers may not allow. He added that multiple versions of the software could be used by different people on the same computer, as each user’s account will be password-protected.
The senior manager of the firm, Chandrashekhar S.B., however stated that the tool is currently restricted to Windows.
“We plan to extend the service to other OSes (operating systems) in the following year,” the manager said.
According to company representatives, the software is available for free from the websitewww.sysnetindia.comand occupies only 1 MB space,.
