How it works
App:IC lets you take your internal communication stories further and work harder.
Our product delivers news articles straight from your intranet or other news platform to a branded app on company or personal mobile devices.
An app made through App:IC does not need a new channel or content management system, instead it complements your existing platforms. Once it is setup, any stories you post to your news platform will move automatically – meaning no extra effort is required – to your app or you can select what news to share.
Frequently asked questions
How secure will my app and information be?
All content is encrypted with AES (advanced encryption standard) before leaving your network. It is only ever stored in fully encrypted format and the decoder is compiled into your app which is set only to your employees mobile devices.
What happens if an employee leaves my organisation?
We can provide an enterprise level mobile device management solution or integrate with your Active Directory if preferred. So whether it’s a company device or an employee’s own you can cut access any time.
What is the difference between push notifications and message notifications?
Message notifications or “badges” are the little red numbers that appear by an app telling you there are updates. Push notifications popup on the phone’s screen to tell you a specific message. With the mobile device management system you can send message that popup and tell people there is new or special content – or even use them for standalone mini notices.
How do employees download the app?
There are several different ways to get your app onto your people’s devices and the solution can fit with or around anything you already have in place but we also provide mobile device management system which will make the process simpler.
