Kami Wins at New Zealand Innovation Awards 2015

We are very excited to announce that we received the “Innovation in Information Communication Technology and Cloud Solutions Award” for 2015 at the New Zealand Innovation Awards last 21st of October.

Here at Kami, we are a team of passionate innovators. We seek to improve the way people work. Whether in business, education or in a personal capacity, we want to provide a platform for a seamless bridge between document workflow needs for all our users.

We believe that the Innovation Awards will help us share our story to other New Zealanders. This recognition showcases the innovative technology that we are building. While we have a wide user following off-shore, especially across North America, we have yet to share our story to our fellow Kiwis.

Since our Kami launch in 2014 (previously Notable PDF), we’ve seen phenomenal growth, recently celebrating over 2 million installs in the Google Marketplaces alone. As our user base grows, we need to grow with them. We are excited to take on new, innovative developers and other entrepreneurial young Kiwis, who are open to challenging our status quo. While we seek to grow our team, we’re staying put here in New Zealand. We believe that New Zealand is a great place to learn and grow as a startup within the Tech space.

About Kami

Kami aims to create the next-generation online document tool for everyone. As millions of schools, enterprises, and professionals now work from the cloud, Kami is currently the best alternative to the traditional desktop applications. Kami is accessible via any browser, using our web-based app, Google Chrome Extension, Google Chrome App, and Google App. With aesthetic clarity and simple functionality, anyone can easily use our app to create, edit, annotate and share his or her valuable content.

Our vision for the next year is to improve further the application, and we seek to become the world’s leading online office productivity tool.
