Zapty is an online teamwork and project collaboration tool, combining core features and productivity tools to provide users seamless collaboration, discussion and document sharing. It puts conversations at the center of work, and from there, users naturally discover and manage work while conversing/collaborating with anyone inside or outside the organization. It is more effective than email, providing organization and structure to conversations and teams, and at the same time creating transparency and accountability in tracking the completion of tasks and projects.

Zapty Inc., is a privately held Internet software and service company with head office in Sunnyvale, CA, USA and development office in Bangalore, India. It was founded in 2014 by Arvind Agarwal and Sanjay Shah. In a previous venture, the founders experienced collaboration issues during a rapid growth stage of the business, and soon after being acquired by a company with multiple offices without a single tool to tackle the problem. An idea to create a new platform was born and Zapty was launched, allowing the employees to converse in the context of what they are doing.
