Africa’s first virtual communication and collaboration platform conceived and developed by Africans has been launched in South Africa. Glue Virtual platform – GlueVP – is the brainchild of Zimbabwean born Professor, Richard Chinomona a visionary and a passionate innovator determined to create solutions to further African economies and advance social impact solutions.
Designed by Africans for Africans GlueVP is intended among other purposes to assist African states in dealing with cyber security issues that are endemic in an increasingly virtual world.
The GLUE Virtual Platform (Glue VP) combines the functionality of major virtual platforms. It provides high quality and affordable access for users with real-time support and security. Communication on the platform is fitted and secured with an end-to-end encryption to protect users from third party infiltration.
“Have you ever imagined the security risk posed by having African governments conducting high level cabinet meetings that discuss sensitive or strategic issues about their respective country governance on a virtual platform that is managed and controlled in a foreign country? It is our hope that GlueVP will provide real time security to users, in ways that safeguard the integrity of African affairs” said Prof Richard Chinomona, founder of the Glue VP platform.
GLUE Virtual Platform will afford African governments the opportunity to keep all their information on their government secured servers. GLUE also provides secure information for private users on their dedicated organisational secure servers.
The Virtual Platform provides the user a wide range of features such as presentations sharing, video sharing capabilities, Multi-User Whiteboard, Screen sharing, Recording, Break-Out Rooms, Polling for users, Shared notes, Public and private chat rooms amongst others. It is built and intended for use by individuals, entrepreneurs, small and medium businesses, large enterprises, corporates, governments and their agencies, community and non-profit organisations, churches and educational institutions.
“It is our hope that Glue VP will be a solution to the urgent needs of African learners to access education at their own time and wherever they might be. Access to relatively affordable internet services and the right virtual platforms will make it possible for many learners to achieve their educational goals in an increasingly virtually connected world” added Prof Chinomona.
The GLUE VP Collaboration and Communication platform enables remote, agile teams and institutions to work efficiently by enabling them to schedule daily meetings to keep team members informed about current tasks, planning, and training. It is a comprehensive communication, collaboration, engagement and participation platform ready for use for meetings, government communication, education and training.
