Our current times increasingly see information going digital, calling for systems which enable smooth sharing of such vital digital information.In an office setting, this is especially relevant as transmission speed of work- related information such as links of relevant websites and news, excel and ppt files, can either make or break profit.When we think of existing systems which facilitate sharing of such information, then e-mail and platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp come to mind.But these systems cannot be used for dissemination of work related info because of the following reasons :
1)Security concern: These accounts can be hacked and you wouldn't want your office related data to be gone away with the hands of a hacker
2)Lack of Customizability: Having specific company centric features on a social platform, meant for company employees, such as company news, is a good idea.
3)Distraction: When employees use popular platforms such as WhatsApp for office related work, there exists a probability that they use it for personal stuff, thereby getting distracted
Thus, a web based platform for company employees, where they can share relevant information is very necessary in this day and age. Now, with the increasing smartphone penetration and apps, giving a quicker and more enjoyable experience to users, a social media app can be even a better option over a social media platform on desktop.This gives a great scope for social media application developers. Let us see which features are highly recommended to be in your for-company social application:
1)Events of The Day: If you a big company, then you most likely are having many events such as meetings, conferences, training seminars and etc. in a single day. You can inform all your employees about the various events of a day, through this feature.
2)Pre-Defined User Registration: Give all employees exclusive access to the app, by providing a unique login password and thus, ensure security of essential office data.
3)Push Notifications: Let your employees know about the latest company news and event updates through push notifications.
4)Chat: Make communication between employees super-fast by providing the chat feature. This will allow vital info to be passed with speed, thus, making work super-efficient.
5)News: Let employees know about the latest press releases of company’s success stories through this feature, thereby keeping employees motivated and inculcating a sense of ownership.
6)Note Pad For Personal Reference: Such a feature will allow employees to scribble work related notes and ideas and keep them safe in the cloud.Such notes can be referred back to by an employee or can even be shared with other employees.
7)Gallery Section: With this section employees can view and post photos of company events, thereby establishing a sense of connectivity among everyone.
Along with these essential features, the application should also provide an intuitive and user friendly user experience.To ensure smooth working of all features and provide a user friendly experience, a company must hire a team providing services of social media application development in India or elsewhere.A smoothly running company centric mobile application will ensure both, productivity and employee engagement.
