In continuation of its effort to enhance theEMPLOYEEapp mobile platform and based on feedback and requests from its customers, APPrise Mobile today announced the release of Version 8.3 that brings social and networking functionality to its mobile app communications and workplace solution.
Through Version 8.3, customers of theEMPLOYEEapp now have the option to:
- Allow employees to “Like” specific pieces of content and information (via a thumbs up button)
- Comment on specific pieces of content and allow for an ongoing conversation around designated information
- Allow employees to view a company’s employee directory through the app in order to search for other employees and email and call them directly from their mobile device.
“Since our founding, theEMPLOYEEapp has been utilized by companies of all sizes and across all industries as a way to take advantage of mobile technology to distribute content and information to a company’s workforce in an organized, easy to consume and instantaneous way,” said Jeff Corbin, Founder and CEO of APPrise Mobile. “Up until this point, our technology has been an employer-to-employee solution that gives Communications and HR professionals a cost effective way to implement a mobile communications strategy. Our new version takes our platform to the next level by giving the employee the ability to interact with and engage others in their organization by liking and commenting on content that is placed on their company’s branded app.”
He continued, “Version 8.3 also gives companies the ability to open their employee directory within the app so that employees can find and communicate with one another. As can be seen by Microsoft’s recent acquisition of LinkedIn, the ability to network within a company is critical in today’s digital workplace. Providing open access to an organization’s employee directory furthers our effort to make theEMPLOYEEapp a practical tool within a company’s business. At the same time, it sets the stage for future innovation and development that we look forward to bringing to market in the months ahead.”
