Intellect wins CIO100 Award for UnMail’s mobile feature
UnMail’s on-the-Cloud implementation went live with approximate 30% of users on-boarded in the very first month. To drive up the user adoption and increase it usage outside the office, UnMail Mobile App was deployed. With today’s workforce being largely a mobile-centric user community, mobility is no more an added feature, but the core need to effective communication and collaboration. Thus, mobility becomes a ‘force multiplier’ that enables seamless collaboration on the go. This has reflected in the use of UnMail in the organization jumping from an initial adoption rate of 35% to 80% at the end of 6 months. As on the date of adoption of UnMail is complete at 100% - touching all 4000 employees across team, departments and geographies.
The objective of making UnMail mobile, was to extend the main collaboration features of a Cloud-based solution to a handheld device such a smart phone or iPad. Native apps were developed for Android and IOS hand-held devices (to cover most of the employees) for anytime, anywhere access to notifications from day-to-day work updates (team broadcasts, team discussions, milestones, team appreciation, etc.), organization announcements, workflow conversations and approvals, private conversations, connections and knowledge discussion circles.
