About Us

Background

In conceiving and developing theEMPLOYEEapp, it wasn’t a group of techies looking to take advantage of the vast employee communications industry. Rather it was communications and human resource professionals with decades of experience consulting for organizations with real communications challenges and who realized that with the proliferation of mobile technology, an opportunity existed for their profession to be more efficient and effective in their work.

Starting in 2011, the APPrise Mobile team came together to create a turn-key solution that would allow non-tech professionals to take advantage of the fact that pretty much everyone now has an iPhone, iPad, Android or other web-enabled mobile device.  We moved quickly to develop a solution that would allow for the implementation of a mobile communications strategy that didn’t require heavy IT involvement, was cost effective and secure. We did so based not on what we thought was needed in a technology solution, but rather based on what our clients told us they required.

We are proud to have pioneered the use of mobile technology in the communications industry as well as our client list that consists of many great organizations who have embraced not only the importance of mobile technology to their work, but also theEMPLOYEEapp as a best-in-class and easy solution for doing so.  We are committed to continuing to develop and offering the very best solution (software and service) to the industries from which we come — Corporate Communications and HR.
