Full Experience: Full access to the company intranet & Office 365. Microsoft 365 license.

Empower and Support Frontline Workers

48% of frontline workers are not digitally empowered! Unlike their desk-based colleagues, field workers often don’t have access to communication and collaboration tools, like an intranet. That means they lack access to internal news and events, making it harder to feel part of the company culture. Providing a shared space tailored to frontline workers’ roles boosts feelings of belonging, helping foster inclusivity and engagement.

[FAQs]

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

An intranet application gives employees access to the company intranet anywhere and anytime, even on the go. Doing so enhances internal communication, collaboration, and information within an organization. It provides a secure platform for authorized employees, promoting transparency and engagement. Features like document sharing and project management tools enable seamless collaboration and boost productivity. It is an organizational knowledge repository, allowing easy access to important documents and procedures. Integration with other business systems simplifies workflows and enhances efficiency. In summary, an intranet application offers a secure, centralized platform that improves communication, collaboration, knowledge sharing, and productivity for every employee – those who work in an office or the field, with or without a desktop.

 

To customize an intranet application for your specific company needs, follow these steps:

  1. Identify your organization’s communication, collaboration, and information-sharing requirements through assessment and feedback.
  2. Choose a customizable intranet solution with a mobile app that has options for templates, branding, and layout customization.
  3. Configure the intranet by creating custom sections, pages, and widgets and integrating necessary tools and applications.
  4. Utilize user permissions and access controls to ensure appropriate information access based on roles, e.g., tailored for frontline, field or office workers.
  5. Regularly seek user feedback on the app and any improvements they could like to see in terms of layout, content, or experience.

To maximize the adoption of an intranet application by employees, focus on the following key steps.

  1. Firstly, ensure that the app is user-friendly and intuitive by offering a simple and visually appealing interface.
  2. Provide thorough training and support to employees, highlighting the benefits and demonstrating how to use the intranet effectively.
  3. Let employees know whether they can download the app on their personal phone or if it is to be used on their professional phone only.
  4. If employees can download the app on their personal phones, outline best practices and guidelines to ensure intranet security and digital wellbeing.
  5. Hold an information session for employees, so they can ask any questions about the app.
  6. Encourage active participation and engagement by creating a culture of collaboration and recognizing contributions made through the intranet.
  7. Continuously communicate the value and relevance of the intranet, showcasing success stories and addressing any concerns or feedback.
  8. Finally, regularly update and improve the intranet based on user input and evolving needs to keep it fresh and aligned with employees.

 

 

When it comes to your intranet application, it is essential to adhere to specific security recommendations:

  • Install Powell Apps only from your company’s designated app store or reputable public stores.
  • Avoid jailbreaking or rooting your devices.
  • Employ Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions to manage and secure company devices. MDM provides centralized control, allowing for efficient enforcement of security policies, remote device management, and data protection.
  • Utilize Dual Factor Authentication (DFA) for accessing critical apps installed on your mobile devices. DFA adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide two forms of authentication, such as a password and a unique verification code.

Returning to the general security recommendations for your intranet application:

  • Utilize encryption protocols to protect data both in transit and at rest.
  • Regularly update and patch the intranet application to address vulnerabilities. Keeping software up-to-date helps protect against known security flaws and ensures that the latest security enhancements are implemented.
  • Conduct periodic security audits and assessments to identify potential risks and promptly address any vulnerabilities. This proactive approach helps maintain a secure environment and prevents potential breaches.
  • Train employees on data security best practices and enforce strong password policies. Educating users about potential risks and promoting responsible behavior reduces the likelihood of security incidents.
  • Regularly back up data and establish a robust disaster recovery plan. In the event of data loss or system failures, having up-to-date backups and a well-defined recovery strategy is essential for business continuity.
  • Stay informed about the latest security threats and industry best practices to adapt security measures proactively. This ensures that the security measures implemented stay relevant and effective against evolving threats.

By implementing these comprehensive security measures, including those specifically tailored to the mobile app, Powell Apps can provide a robust and secure environment for accessing Powell Intranet while protecting sensitive data from unauthorized access and potential breaches.
