Because not everyone at my company has company phones and much of our workforce is mobile, EasyGrouper makes it simple for us to remain connected. We invite employees to join EasyGrouper, and then each person can update their own contact information and share that with the company. It's especially helpful for me to contact employees when I'm scheduling an upcoming weekend shift. I can easily locate key contacts from our service groups and then call, text or email those contacts directly through the app to check their availability.
We’ve said goodbye to using spreadsheets and even email distribution lists to keep our employee contact information current and organized. We wanted a tool that was simple, collaborative and affordable. EasyGrouper is exactly that. Using technology which we already have (smartphones and computers)—our employees can manage their own information with the confidence that the whole company will automatically and instantaneously view any revisions—wherever they are.
I’ve been using EasyGrouper for about a month now and I love it. I didn’t realize just how much I would use it but I have to say having all my co-workers’ contact info at my fingertips is great. You don’t think you will need someone’s personal contact info until you actually do! The status feature is the fastest way to check on someone who is not around, you can quickly scroll through the list of everyone and see if someone is working from home, on vacation or at a doctor’s appointment. Also, as soon as some winter weather hits I know the alert feature will be used to notify everyone if the office has to close due to a storm.
*Adding users to the service was a quick, one-time process. *The location feature is useful even if you have just one location. Handy spot for info. * I like keeping all my work contacts separate from my personal contacts.
*You will have to remind new users about using it at first, until it becomes part of their routine. *If a user doesn’t have a smartphone then they won’t be able to use the app. But most people have smartphones nowadays.
