An Employee App for Retail: Reach the People Who Influence Your Customers

Keep Your People Up-to-Date

In retail, shift plans and schedules are often in flux depending on days off, holidays, or even the weather. Being able to make adjustments spontaneously and immediately push them out to your employees saves time and effort.

Product Training

With frontline employees spending most of their time on the sales floor, opportunities for training and briefings are rare. An employee app lets you upload important information about the next campaign, inform your employees about new products, and spread your brand promise.

Create Store Culture

Your employees are in direct contact with your customers—and their morale directly affects customer experience. A employee app for retail helps you foster company culture, spread common values, and improve the character and atmosphere your stores.

Customer and Employer Brand

Creating a customer brand is what retail has always been about. It's a big reason why people return to a store again and again. But the same goes for your employees. Creating a positive employer brand is the first step toward creating a positive customer brand, and an employee app for retail will set you on your way.
