- Request and approve holiday’s, plan remote meetings, find meeting room,…
- Simplify complicated procedures for product orders, absence requests, homeworking approvals,…
- Setup a community or group chat via the app
- Store company updates, policy documents, guidelines or training session info in one place
2. Enterprise Mobility Management
Taking the next step in your mobile journey? To manage anything on a mobile platform you’ll need to start with Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM).
Drive the emergence of new productivity sources by connecting mobile devices to enterprise workflows no matter the device numbers and types.
- Mobile Device Management: Remotely manages the lifecycle of mobile devices and their respective platforms.
- Mobile Application Management: Manages mobile applications instead of hardware.
- Mobile Content Management: Enables professionals to access content on mobile devices.
EMM is extending into unified endpoint management – combining EMM functions with PC and laptop client devices, from both a company-owned device and BYOD perspective. EMM platforms are also extending to nontraditional connected endpoints, such as IoT-related scenarios
