Why manufacturers are investing in employee apps

1

Transforming internal communications

Staff feeling connected and informed is vital so there’s a real desire for quicker, easier, more real-time and targeted comms, news and messaging for every individual that will:

  • Get and keep everyone on the same page, regardless of role or location, and remove the cascade burden from managers and supervisors

  • Overcome the practical challenges around a distributed, non-desked and shift-based workforce with the onus on real-time comms and alerts

  • Contribute to sustained operational and QHSE standards as well as supporting and enabling the individual 24/7

2

Improving employee experience

Organisations want a properly people-oriented tool that has all the capability out of the box to:

  • Make life easier and better everyday with all your communications, information and occupational resources in one ‘go-to’ place

  • Assist, nurture and incentivise staff from day one, from pre-boarding new starters, on-demand video training and wellbeing support  to benefits, employee awards and thank you cards

  • Offer plenty of ultra-handy self-service options and digital ‘help’ such as epayslips, holiday requests, instant incident reporting

3

Modernising intranets 

No intranet? Or an old dekstop-only version? Manufacturers know that mobile has to be front and centre of any distributed workforce, allowing them to:

  • Create a common single sign-on platform across mobile app and desktop that delivers the requisite choice and flexibility for every user, from head office to control room to cab

  • Leverage familiar social media and consumer app styling to drive adoption and regular usage across all IT literacy levels

  • Re-energise the whole intranet experience with dynamic creative content as well as evergreen resources to maintain its relevance and value

4

Supporting digital transformation

Organisations are always looking at how best to transition from analogue to digital to:

  • Drive greater efficiency and performance while minimising staff churn, production waste, environmental impact and non-compliance

  • Enable and empower every staff member regardless of time or place

  • Be better equipped and more responsive to regulatory imperatives, market dynamics or customer demands
