Carii’s groundbreaking social community platform solution has driven unprecedented early success and top industry accolades

Carii, the new mobile and web enabled social platform for true community collaboration and revenue sharing, announced today that it has reached significant milestones and is launching further expansion plans for the company's platform. Successfully launched in September 2014, the new Carii user base has been growing at a month-over-month rate of 57%.

Carii’s groundbreaking social community platform solution has driven unprecedented early success. Since its pilot launch late last year, the company has signed up over 600 communities worldwide with an overseas market as its fastest growing market who see the vast potential in the social business revenue-sharing marketplace.

"Meeting our launch goals of creating a better way for people to collaborate and build successful communities online, we are seeing an incredible growth rate in the number of users,” said Denise Hayman-Loa, CEO. “By establishing high quality relationships with key influencers and partners, we’re confident that 2015 will continue the rapid growth of our active membership and communities.

"We are excited about our 2015 expansion plans which include engaging international partnerships that reach over 360 million users worldwide through their active membership, web site redesign, and exciting new features to enrich customer experience.”

Milestones

  • Successful launch of Carii Android and Apple IOS mobile apps, incorporating new video sharing.
  • Recruited chief marketing and new business executives for customer acquisition with new redesigned home page and Facebook integration.
  • Raised funding for additional resources in product development and marketing/sales

2015 Expansion

  • Strategic global partnerships, expanding potential audience reach to 360 million users
  • Major Facebook advertising initiative to drive US based growth
  • Adding new features to increase engagement and new web design for easy registration

According to Gartner, enterprise social networks will become the primary communication channels for noticing, deciding or acting on information relevant to carrying out work. And by 2016, 50 percent of large organizations will have internal Facebook-like social networks, and that 30 percent of these will be considered as essential as email and telephones are today. However, Gartner estimates that through 2015, 80 percent of social business efforts will not achieve the intended benefits.
