The insta24™ is a native app technology platform for internal communications. With a robust user interface and easy-to-use content management system (CMS), the insta24™ integrates with a company’s active employee directory or other HR information system (HRIS) and provides direct access to its employees through their mobile device. The insta24™ allows companies to push important information and content (multimedia and documents) to their employees instantaneously, no matter where they are located directly to their employee's smart phones and PC’s An organization also has the ability to define groups within the app and restrict access to specific pieces of content based on these groups. At its essence, The insta24™ is the mobile communications intranet for all types of organizations as it allows employers to increase engagement by establishing a direct line of communications with their employees via the mobile device. Access to the insta24™ app is completely controlled by the company, which can add or remove employees from accessing the app at any time.
Companies worldwide face a major challenge when it comes to communicating with their workforce. Since most employees are not beholden to a desk and are becoming more mobile, employers have difficulty communicating simultaneously and instantaneously with their workforce.
Whether they are on a business trip, in the field, in factories, or on the road, the only means available to communicate with employees simultaneously and instantaneously is via the one thing they all have in common — a mobile device.
Employee engagement and communications is increasingly becoming more difficult given the global nature of business. In a recent survey conducted by Fortune Magazine, 84% of “non-desk” workers at U.S. companies with more than 1,000 employees said they don’t get enough information from management, and 75% said their employers aren’t telling them enough about changes in policies and goals. Almost the same number (74%) said “consistent” messages from senior management are important to them. However, according to the Fortune survey, 83% of those surveyed are not on their companies’ email systems.
Given the fact that almost everyone has a mobile device, a solution for the vexing problem facing internal communications professionals now exists with insta24™. No matter where an employee is located, a company can instantaneously and simultaneously push information into the palm of their hand.
Unlike most corporate intranets and other social collaboration platforms, insta24™ is independent of an organization’s network and requires no systems integration. All the company needs to provide is a logo and banner image. insta24™ provides the company with a simple and intuitive content management system (CMS) through which a database of employees and content is added.
A company’s employee database or active directory is simply uploaded into a secure interface in the CMS and is then managed by the company. Before an employee is able to gain access to the app, the platform authenticates the employee using a unique employee identifier (e.g. email address, employee number, etc.) If an employee no longer is employed by the company and is removed from the database, they no longer are able to access the app.
Content (multi-media and documents) can simply be uploaded to the app through the CMS. By simply clicking the “ADD” button, content is instantaneously made available and a push notification/alert is sent to the mobile devices of employees located anywhere in the world.
