  • "One of the things that I think is really stellar about MyELC is the native mobile app. It is the first time we've had the entire intranet actually on mobile, not just a subset of it, and it's organized well so you don't get lost and you can actually find what you need. I've worked on intranets off and on for a long time and I've never seen a mobile experience this strong before."

FAQs

What is an employee app?

An employee app – also known as an employee engagement app, workplace app, employee communication app, or internal communications app – brings communications, productivity tools, integrations, and search features to a native app for employees to use on their mobile devices. It is a mobile application that brings the full power of your digital workplace to the palm of every employee’s hand. They are fast becoming an essential part of the modern employee experience.

For businesses with deskless workers, an app solves frontline employee disconnect to ensure that every worker gets an equitable experience. Whether used to connect your employees with business-critical updates on-the-go, bring productivity tools to those without computer access, or power administrative tasks like rota scheduling or holiday booking, an employee app or mobile intranet is the reliable mobile companion of the modern employee.

Why do companies use employee apps?

Enterprises use employee apps to bring equitable employee experiences to every employee, no matter where they work or what device they prefer. Today, 80% of the workforce is deskless. That means 2.7 billion employees are without regular access to a computer. An employee communications app removes barriers to access by putting the full power of your digital workplace into the pocket of every employee.

Internal communications apps allow all employees to stay connected to company news, essential knowledge, and critical business applications wherever work takes them. Whether it’s receiving a critical update, searching for knowledge mid-meeting, or finding a helpful colleague on the commute, an employee app lets your people work how they want, when they want.

What are the benefits of an employee experience app?

Traditional internal communication channels favor office-based employees, leading to engagement gaps between business units. Enterprises with remote, hybrid, and frontline workforces know all too well the difficulties involved in aligning and engaging these hard-to-reach audiences. An employee app removes communication barriers and gives every employee access to the same powerful experiences, no matter where they work.

As a new generation of workers joins the workforce, mobile experiences are set to become more important. The next generation of digital natives prioritize flexibility and convenience, and getting ahead of these demands means having the right mobile intranet strategy today.

Why is an employee app an essential tool for remote teams?

Remote employees struggle with isolation, and when employees feel disconnected from the wider organization, engagement suffers. In the work-anywhere world, workplace apps enable connection with company news, knowledge, and applications anywhere, anytime. The more flexible work becomes, the more our technology needs to adapt. Employee apps allow enterprises to create more flexible working environments that nurture culture and engagement with powerful digital experiences for everyone.

What is a SuperApp & what are the benefits?

A SuperApp is not unique to employee experience - it is any single app which unites multiple apps within it. For example, when booking a train ticket there will be an integrated payment system, a scheduling system, and a seat booking system. Uniting all of those databases in one app creates a seamless experience for a customer. A super app in the context of employees, stands out amongst the ever-increasing amount of enterprise apps. An employee SuperApp similarly combines mutliple systems into one seamless user experience - that could be viewing a payslip, to rota scheduling, to finding the latest company announcements - all in one place.

What is the difference between an Employee App and Mobile Intranet?

The difference between an employee app and mobile intranet is that an app is a native experience built for mobile. It uses common app functions that we know and love, and are used to experiencing as customers of other services, e.g. mobile navigation, push notifications, and ux elements like 'swipe to delete'. Mobile intranets are where a desktop intranet is reskinned to be accessible via mobile, whether that be via shortcuts or browser access, these are generally much more basic as they are typically designed desktop-first.
