The Collage Outlook add-on aggregates notifications from business apps, documents and social tools into Outlook. When viewing an email message in Outlook, Collage surfaces key topics contained in the message and displays related notifications from other sources of information such as Office 365, Salesforce, Zendesk, Yammer, and more.
Collage also fits in very nicely with the new direction Microsoft is taking to incorporate AI into workers daily workflows as Collage introduces various key technology innovations like machine learning and artificial intelligence-based topic generation and matching across cloud apps. These are features not found in any other third-party vendor solutions. In addition to being the first third-party solution to leverage the Office Graph API, Collage also utilizes the most extensive set of Microsoft APIs of any vendor.
Our CEO, Yaacov Cohen had the following to say on the win: "It is the highest honor to have Collage be recognized by Microsoft for this prestigious award and we are truly excited to see how our new, genre-breaking application can help lessen the information overload plight experienced by workers every day. Collage leverages the popularity and universality of email to provide information workers the context they need to get their jobs done without forcing them to learn or add a new tool to their work experience. In today's app-centric user experience, meeting workers in their email comfort zone is key to adoption and functionality. Collage addresses this increasingly best-of-breed cloud world and makes sure every email is coupled with all other relevant updates from the across the business."
