En route to massive mobile engagement via finely tuned apps
Consumers are utilizing millions of applications in their everyday lives in order to facilitate their consumption of goods and services.
This expectation is rapidly moving to the workplace as well. Workers on the go need ready access to the applications that power their roles within an organization.
Why not a Mobile Website?
What’s the Difference?
Many organizations consider having a mobile-friendly website as their way of “going mobile”. It is important for a company’s web site to be optimized for mobile use, but that is not equivalent, nor can it provide all of the capabilities of a mobile app.
We are used to accessing apps such as LinkedIn or Chase Bank through our mobile devices. Based on statistics and consumer behavior, employees having access to a similar icon for their organization readily accessible on their home screen will influence behavior and increase engagement.
For building on-going engagement, mobile websites can’t:
- Send push notifications
- Best leverage device capabilities
- Offer online access to content and functionalities
- Design an intuitive mobile experience beyond standard website constraints
- Take advantage of placing a valuable app icon on their users’ phones
What attracts workers to mobile?
- Push Notifications vs. Emails
Receive reminders to take action on employee tasks or be notified about important company announcements
- On-the-Go Access vs. Desktop Bound
Easily access files from anywhere with full desktop functionality
Set up preferences to streamline operations and create favorites
- Usage of Phone Features
Utilize built-in security, QR code scanners and GPS to enhance app usability
Making the Shift
The ever-changing state of the employment market is driving worker engagement and enhancing employer communication with these individuals.
