Engage frontline employees with mobile access

Frontline workers, such as those in a retail or manufacturing environment, often find it hard to engage with their wider organization due to lack of access to technology. Supplying these workers with a powerful mobile intranet experience can revolutionize engagement, providing a direct channel of communication between head office and the shop floor. Not only does this rejuvenate the employee experience, it also provides frontline workers with access to key information and policies that can help them deliver better service to customers. With beautiful experiences across any device, the intranet is now more accessible than ever.

An internal site to match your external brand

Your brand is a powerful tool for customers, helping you stand out in a crowded market. However, the rapid innovation that customers now expect when shopping is often not reflected internally within a retail organization. This means that those tasked with delivering the brand face-to-face, such as the shop floor staff, are often poorly equipped to do their job brilliantly. Unily can be branded to your exact guidelines, allowing you to represent your brand as perfectly internally as it is externally. From colors to logos to creating your own intranet sub-sites that perfectly match the personalities of your teams, your Unily intranet is a powerful tool to bring your diverse workforce closer to your brand.

Great user experience is also central to Unily’s design, with every experience highly designed to make digital tools easier for your users to understand and use. With consumer-level experiences across the product, your users will get to grips with Unily with minimal training. Unily also looks great and works seamlessly across tablet and mobile devices, ensuring that your extended workforce who don’t have access to a desktop can stay as connected to the organization as your Head Office workers.
