Supporting every worker, from the back office to the frontline

Why retail organisations are investing in colleague apps


Transforming internal communications

Staff feeling connected and informed is vital so there’s an urgent need 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 rota-based workforce with the onus on timely updates and alerts

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


Improving colleague 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


Modernising intranets 

No intranet? Or an old desktop-only version? Today’s businesses know that mobile has to be front and centre of any multi-site, mobile 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 everywhere

  • 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


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, operational 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
