The rapid development of technology is changing our lives: online shopping, electronic signatures, bank transfers. It has also fundamentally changed the way people do business. With the advent of the fast internet, convenient websites, and mobile apps, it has certainly become easier to do business, as well as more comfortable to shop, conduct business communication, etc. It has also made life easier for the usually busy corporate worker.
An interesting fact, as stated in a study conducted by Pew, in the world 60% of the adult population has a smartphone with stable access to the Internet. Obviously, that number will grow every year. Mobile applications are slowly penetrating large corporations and the latter are starting to use them more and more for corporate needs. Today let’s talk about the mobile alert app and how it makes doing business more comfortable for everyone.
Defining the mobile alert applications
Do you remember a time when a boss couldn’t ask his subordinates to do a task while sitting in his office? Or when you had to gather in a meeting room to have a job interview or discussion? Today, with mobile apps, you can interview or hold a meeting from anywhere in the world. This is especially relevant if you have an international company with thousands of employees around the world. Skype and other similar apps have made video conferencing very convenient and accessible.
For convenience within the company itself, many use notification system apps. Such apps make communicating and informing employees within the company less complicated and more efficient.
A mobile notification app is an app that sends short messages with important information. This message appears on the smartphone screen even when the phone and the mobile app are not in use. This way you can get your employees’ attention, and it is much more effective than other communication channels. Alert apps can be used in emergency situations to share information and warn of potential danger.
Main functions of the mobile notification apps
Many corporations create their internal communication channels, but the constant use of them causes employees to lose their vigilance, and in emergencies, an employee may simply not see an important message. That’s why you should use a separate application to inform your employees in case of an emergency.
Emergencies, unfortunately, are common in all companies in every country. Terrorists, natural disasters, fires, and many other things constantly threaten humanity. Every company should be ready to promptly inform all its employees and get everyone out of the building safe and sound. But it is not always possible to catch all employees at their work monitors, and there is simply not enough time to call everyone. Then notification applications may be needed. This is especially true if you have employees who are out of the office (couriers, movers). With the app, they will be notified of an incident. Alert notification can be in the form of a push message or text SMS. Moreover, notifications via text and push notifications will definitely reach all employees.
- Real-time communication and sharing of the information
Since telecommuting is popular these days, with many employees not visiting the office, such notification apps can be used for emergency information and important communication for each day. You can also remind employees about important online meetings. Wherever a person is, he always has his phone close by. Email is no longer an effective means of communication, many companies have stopped using it altogether. Mobile alerts can be sent directly to an employee’s smartphone or tablet to tell all news and company policies. In addition to being able to share important information, such apps can also impact employee engagement and comfort in the workplace.
