Benefits of Using Mobile Apps for your Internal Crisis Communications | Practical Insights | Scoop.it

Here are 5 benefits of using a mobile app for your internal crisis communications - and which industries and types of organizations would best benefit.

 

Intranets are a great tool for large organizations that have offices all around the country and the world, but what about when you have workers on the ground? Workers on the ground don’t necessarily have a computer in front of them at all times, but what they definitely do have is a mobile phone.

Steven Chen's curator insight, August 21, 2013 7:40 AM

We all know how important it is for people to communicate with each other, and it goes the same for workers all around the world. The communication with workers and their supervisor is the crucial key to success. The reading is about how mobile apps should be used more during crisis communication plans. Sure internet is very useful in modern life style but not everyone has a computer with them all the time, and as technology improves most people starts using smart phones which include internet access on it. The reading also talk about when a large company has workers and offices all around the world, these companies should consider more putting mobile apps inside their internal crisis communication. Using mobile apps allows workers to access and reach every member in the team at any time and place, also they can share links and images to increase speed of communications, at last the apps can make or change to suit how the company runs so there won’t be a limit on what they can do on the apps.

Hi, Steven, thank you for share this article. This is article talking about the benefit of using mobile apps for your internal crisis communication. Everyone need communicate with each other. People can communicate with each other through Internet, mobile phone or computer. I agree with Steven’s insight, not everyone have a computer with him or her all the time, but people have smartphone with Internet. Internet is a great tool for lager international organization that has employees all around world. So creating an app designed for company internal communication will let employees to improve their work efficiency. Use mobile apps allow works to contact to their team member at any time, send message and notification at particular time, share image, link and video and this app also can include some unique functions for your business. Using mobile technology for internal crisis communication can bring many benefits for the company and works.

This is a good insight, mobile phone is getting more and more handy these days especially when everyone has smart phone on them, the internet access become another way of easy and cheap way of communication. We all know how hard and expensive it is to make a call overseas not to mention we have to calculate the time difference, so I totally agree to making a phone app that can help during unpredicted circumstances especially for big business that have companies all over the world. I also agree with the facts that worker need to have effective communications and if a phone call is missed it might delay things for days while a phone apps can hold the information and wait until someone read it when they get a chance. When it comes to internal crisis communication I think a multipurpose phone app can actually bring a lot of benefits for communication in a business.
