Gone are the days of arranging times for an international telephone or video conference calls, with Sazneo, you only need to “nudge” the people you wish to speak with and send him, her or them a message. As this application makes use of all Internet browsers, there is no need to download and install software; you simply sign up from the Sazneo homepage and start “talking”.

This private discussion can be done without the others in the group knowing; basically it is akin to whispering during a movie.
If, you have to leave a chat half way through, you need not worry about missing out on decisions made, ideals exchanged or plans for the future. Sazneo stores real-time communications into “channels” depending on value. This means that important chats may be stored in a channel labeled “Important” whereas not so important – in the “Not so important” channel. You are then able to read the text of the meeting, you left in the middle of, in your own time.
Prior to the start of the chat, you, the user, must tell the application which “channel” to store the discussion; Sazneo stores all discussions. It is important to note, that saved data is able to be deleted by you after you deem is necessary. This “channeling” system is also handy for the training of new recruits, as they are able to eavesdrop into meetings on company policy, etc.
As mentioned above, Sazneo allows you to communicate in real time without the problem of trying to reconfigure your hardware to circumnavigate a firewall or some other intrusive security shield. Sazneo has built-in protection for you and the person or people you are contacting, thus there is no need to download extra security.

These channels can be either company channels (formed by the company itself) or privately added by yourself, making you the “channel leader”.

Or you may want only a few of your close colleagues to know of its existence, by clicking on the option menu you will find various methods of keeping it either a secret from the boss or only making it available to a select few. Channels are able to be closed at any time and the data exported to another destination.
