Latest release of SocialChorus app personalizes the news and content that employees need to know today, creating more informed, productive and engaged employees.
SAN FRANCISCO – September 28, 2015
SocialChorus announced the latest release of its software, the first and only daily news app for work. The latest release solves the problems created by the overwhelming amount of content employees receive daily while creating more informed, productive and engaged employees.
Providing relevant content to employees is a daily challenge for every enterprise, who spend nearly $120 billion annually on content creation. Not surprisingly, 80% of all employees are overwhelmed with information at work, according to Deloitte.
The SocialChorus daily news app for work centralizes news and content from in and outside the enterprise and personalizes delivery for every employee.
“Consumers love news apps. We built one for the enterprise,” Says Gregory Shove, Founder and CEO. “We built the only app that combines best-of-breed user experience with any enterprise’s “what matters” content to produce an inspiring, daily-read that enables employees to be more informed, productive and engaged.”
SocialChorus daily news app for work provides the news and content employees need to know today. The latest release:
– Combines content discovery, consumption and social sharing into a newsfeed layout similar to popular consumer applications.
– Notifies employees of the content and news they need to know today – in a format similar to the best consumer newsreaders.
– Supports non-sharable internal content like employee surveys, weekly highlights and employee culture updates.
– Simplifies the administration process by allowing users to customize their content – while allowing enterprises to maintain control over content distribution.
– Creates frictionless sharing – new content card designs makes reading and sharing easy for any employee.
“All companies want to unlock employees as brand advocates via social media,” Says Gregory Shove, Founder and CEO. “We know that you must first engage employees with relevant and timely content.”
Altimeter Group agrees. “We advise against viewing employee advocacy as simply a button to push, with the output being an instant expansion in brand’s social network reach.” – Charlene Li, Principle Analyst at Altimeter Group, a Prophet Company
SocialChorus’ latest release puts employee engagement first in employee advocacy. This approach has attracted many of the world’s largest enterprises and high-growth companies including Aetna, Reebok, Comcast, Purina, Shell, Nestle, Staples, Walmart, Target, CDW, Gap, ServiceNow, and over 100 others.
