Why now is a good time to consider deskless workers

Employee apps - more than just chat tools.

Why now is a good time to consider deskless workers

We have just updated our employee mobile apps report to help guide you through the busy marketplace of options. These products are ideal for that subset of workers in many businesses that are labelled ‘hard to reach’. Often this label is applied to deskless, untethered, frontline workers, as their needs are so different and so much more challenging than those of desk workers. However, over the past few years employee mobile apps have emerged as a new breed of employee communication and productivity tool.

What are employee mobile apps?

Employee apps draw together news, team communication, workflow and information access to create a pocket-sized digital workplace. They are particularly effective for firstline workers to digitally equip them with a tool for daily use.

More than that, employee apps can serve the strategic needs of the business across multiple departments through just one product. They are often cheaper than their intranet cousins, while also being lighter, leaner, and therefore easier for frontline workers to engage with.

What’s new in V1.1 of our comprehensive report

We’ve created a quick video to explain what’s included in the report.

There are hundreds of employee apps and intranets on the market. You need to select the right one(s) for your business, which can be difficult to do when dealing with enthusiastic vendor salespeople or when you’re unsure exactly how to search for them in the first place.

We have created a series of reports to help guide you through the options, including one dedicated to employee app products. We have reviewed 30 products in total, and you can download a free sample to get an idea of what you would be buying.
