What’s in the report

We spent hundreds of hours assessing 17 of the best mobile apps against our framework, compiled from real-world business requirements. In the report you will find:

  • 17 app systems independently assessed – we don’t focus on features, we focus on capabilities
  • Dozens of screenshots, showing you the inner workings of products
  • Review commentary that explains what our independent reviewers found tricky and delightful, technical tables and a price bracket indication in each review.

What, exactly, is an employee app? We’ve defined employee apps to differentiate them from simple single-task apps, like expense apps or messaging apps.

Five pages in a fan, from one review, showing product features and commentary.

Here’s just five pages (from an 18-page review) showing how we explain and assess an app.
