NEW YORK – May 10, 2016 – APPrise Mobile, the native app platform for mobile communications and creator of theEMPLOYEEapp® and theIRapp®, today announced that it has been named a “Cool Vendor” in Gartner’s 2016 Cool Vendors in the Digital Workplace report.1 APPrise Mobile is included as one of five new and innovative vendors, products and services that “tell the story of the employee’s journey through the digital workplace.”
“Since we were founded in 2012, we have worked incredibly hard to develop a technology solution that gives communications and HR professionals the ability to incorporate and take advantage of mobile as a strategy for communicating with internal and external audiences. The relationship between IT and a company’s business units is critical to its operational and financial success. We are proud that Gartner, one of the leading and most influential technology analyst firms, has recognized APPrise Mobile as we continue our efforts to further this cause,” said Jeff Corbin, CEO and Founder of APPrise Mobile.
He continued, “One of the key findings of the report is that ‘mobile-centric mechanisms for handling internal communications make it easier for employees to access information that keeps them aligned with their leaders’ vision, stay up to date on news and initiatives, and provide feedback.’ theEMPLOYEEapp directly addresses this finding as it provides an easy to deploy and cost effective solution for organizations of any size – small, medium and the enterprise.”
The APPrise Mobile technology platform was founded and developed by communications and HR professionals. It enables those who are not necessarily tech-savvy to have their own company branded app without the time and expense associated with app development.
Corbin concluded, “We consider our inclusion in Gartner’s report as further validation of not only why our solution is important to the corporate communications, PR and HR industries, but also why the need exists for organizations to rethink how they communicate with internal and external audiences. As Gartner recommends in the report, HR and IT leaders should ‘Reassess how their organization enables two-way communication between leaders and subordinate employees. Think beyond traditional portals and email to enterprise messaging platforms and apps that enable a more agile, dynamic, engaging and continuous feedback loop.’”
