[INFOGRAPHIC] Deliver Interactive Reference Guides to Store Employees

It’s no secret that store employees spend a significant amount of their personal time on mobile phones. While on break, at lunch, or when the work day is over, chances are high that the first thing an employee does is check his or her phone to view new messages and find out what’s trending.

The prevalence of mobile devices today and the connected attitude of workers—both young and old—means that a powerful and real-time communication tool is always in hand when off the job.

Why not provide the same access to your critical operational content while on the job?

To demonstrate the power of bringing business content onto mobile, the infographic below speaks to the signs that tell you it’s time to modernize store operations and illustrates what business outcomes you can expect.

Mobile devices are used today to manage every aspect of our personal lives. Almost one-third of our time awake is spent on our phones, and apps are responsible for 90% of this mobile time, especially those apps that provide productivity tools and communication management.

The natural question arises: can employees use apps to manage their work lives?

Research shows that employees have the highest levels of job satisfaction when they are empowered to get things done, and technology is known to improve employee work performance. The outcome—happier store employees who are more engaged in their work—leads to high impact results, including 81% higher customer satisfaction and 50% lower employee turnover.

But how do you figure out whether or not your workforce could be happier?

Three simple questions help answer this query:

  1. Do you still utilize PDFs and downloadable files? What about binders and paper documents? Are online portals in the mix?
  2. Is it challenging to disseminate your reference guides and operational content to your remote store employees?
  3. Do you worry about customer satisfaction and inconsistent brand experiences across your stores?

If the answer to any (or all) of these questions is “yes,” then it’s time to modernize your store operations.
