New Name, New Functionality. Meet APPrise Mobile.

The Mobile Revolution continues to change how we work, live and interact. To better capture the power of mobile and our position in the marketplace, today we announced that we have changed our company name to APPrise Mobile. While our product names will remain the same (theIRapp, theEMPLOYEEapp, theCONFERENCEapp, theCOMMSapp, etc.), our new corporate name better positions us to grow and showcase the role that we are playing in helping the public relations, investor relations and communications industry use mobile technology to transform the way they keep their audiences “apprised.”

That’s not all! Today we also launched version 7.0, a major technology update to our platform. Version 7.0 consists of a redesign of the app with a more modern look and enhanced user experience.  We also have included the ability to take notes on documents and the ability to push broadcast alerts directly to the coveted home screen of an individual’s device.  At APPrise Mobile we do not develop in a vacuum.  Our product development pipeline extends well through 2015 and is based on the feedback and needs of our customers and prospective customers.  We welcome your thoughts!

To learn more about our new name and Version 7.0 we hope you will listen to our Vlog.

Webinar: Engaging the Mobile Employee Beyond Email

Keeping employees engaged is one of the biggest challenges internal communicators face today. According to Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace study , only a fraction of employees are engaged at their job.  However, mobile technology unlocks new opportunities for communications professionals as more employees are using mobile devices regardless of the type of work they do.  Knowledge workers are no longer anchored to a desk with a PC and just about all service workers are completely mobile and often they are using their own device (BYOD).  The majority of part-time employees don’t have corporate email addresses. These factors combined underscore that internal communicators can no longer rely on email as a primary communications method.

To learn about ways to increase engagement, join us for a free webinar  on August 14 at 2pm ET. The Business Development Institute has organized this exciting event that will include Jeff Corbin, Founder and CEO of theEMPLOYEEapp, Tracy Imm, Director of Internal Communications at Erickson Living and Kristen Ritter, VP of Internal Communications at 21st Century Fox. We will discuss how leading organizations are moving beyond email and embracing technologies including mobile apps to communicate with their workforce and keep employees engaged.

We encourage you to participate in this event. Registration for the event is now open. Please register here. We hope you’ll join us!

iOS 8 – The Biggest Release Ever

Earlier this month, Apple unveiled iOS 8 at its annual Worldwide Developer Conference which is set to launch in the fall.  As Apple puts it, the new mobile operating platform is huge for developers, delivering more than 4,000 APIs, advanced graphic technology, expanded security and productivity features and a new programming language (Swift). iOS 8 is the biggest release since the introduction of the app store providing developers with new tools and opportunities to take advantage of iCloud, Touch ID, and more.

So how does this affect the consumer and end user?  It means that we have lots of new exciting apps – for work and play – that will contain never-seen-before capabilities.  These apps will now be able to take better advantage of the native functionality that Apple is incorporating into its operating system.  By utilizing features such as multitasking capabilities for the iPad, a smart keyboard to suggest contextually appropriate words and the ability to add voice to a message or send a video of what you’re seeing in real time, native apps that fully incorporate these technological advances will rise to the top of the App Store charts.

Check out the video below to see what else Apple has in store for this new upgrade.
