Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

From Facebook to selfies and everything in-between, our phones have become our primary connection to the rest of the world. No wonder more and more organizations are migrating from the physical world to the mobile realm. And so should you. Here are 4 ways in which the Netpresenter employee app can benefit your corporate communication.

Reach non-desk workers

Research shows that 2.7 billion employees don’t work at a desk and only 13 percent of them feel engaged at work. What’s more, a whopping 84 percent of these under-engaged workers don’t believe they get enough information from management. With the Netpresenter employee app, being out doesn’t mean being out of touch. Whether your workers are behind their desk, on the road or in the field, they will stay informed about what’s going on at the office. You can easily reach them by sending company news and other relevant information directly on their mobile devices.

Publish directly from your phone

In the knowledge that today’s workforce likes to use its mobile device for anything and everything – sidelining laptops and desktop computers altogether – the Netpresenter employee app includes a nifty ‘easy publishing’ functionality. This functionality allows users to create messages right from their smartphone or tablet. They can post them on any Netpresenter communication channel: app, digital signage, and screensaver. A great corporate communication tool right in the palm of your hand to post content anywhere, anytime. It’s no longer just a desire, but a reality.

Instantly notify

Push notifications let you keep in touch with your workforce in a non-intrusive way  – whether or not they are using the Netpresenter employee app at that time. Similar to text messages, push notifications are mostly read within the first three minutes. This makes them the perfect tool to inform your employees on urgent matters such as weather emergencies, roadblocks or office issues. By segmenting alerts based on location, you can even notify only those in a specific office, city or region.

Remote workers

The Netpresenter employee app is about connections – connections between people, teams, offices, information, and ideas. These connections extend beyond company walls. The Netpresenter employee app lets remote workers be part of the conversation. By liking and commenting on news items in our employee app, non-desk employees make their voice heard. On top of that, it gives management the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with the people they get to connect with the least in person.
