Move aside desktop and mobile operating systems. 2017 will see the rise of chat operating systems. Flock, the leading enterprise messaging platform, announced the arrival of its latest innovation—FlockOS, just a week before 2016 ended. With its debut, FlockOS becomes the world’s first Chat Operating System (COS).
Flock switched territories from a live message platform provider to an app-based ultra-powerful COS developer swiftly. The latest COS will enable app developers to build enterprise-centric chatbots, intelligent assistants and integrations with Flock messenger forming the backbone of enterprise messaging platform. FlockOS will enable the apps to seamlessly blend with the native messaging channels. At the same time, Flock groups and individual users can send customized notifications and attachments based on task updates.

It will also enable app developers to add widget and To-Do buttons to provide an interactive dashboard view.

Flock currently competes with Slack, Facebook for Business, VMWare Socialcast, Salesforce Chatter, Google+, Cisco Jabber, Jostle, Microsoft Teams, Jive, Glip, IBM Connections, SocialText and Tibbr. All these messenger platforms offer distinct engagement features using a server or cloud-base app.

FlockOS boasts of superlative UI and app-building capabilities, making it a top-of-the-game team messenger channel compared to other incumbents. With an in-built OS capability, enterprise app developers can focus on enhancing user engagement and productivity.
