Groupe.io, a mobile employee communication app, has launched new automated features designed to help non-desk employees improve and streamline their daily workloads. The Task Manager, Data Checklist and Biometric Authentication tools can help retailers ensure enterprise-wide compliance, operations and security, as well as provide insights on workforce management and increase overall productivity.
Each part of the suite serves a role in assisting day-to-day operations:
- Task Manager helps managers assign targeted associates or groups particular tasks with the option to set deadlines and priorities and track progress in real time until completion;
- Data Checklist lets operational managers create customized digital checklists for processes, and attach supporting images, spreadsheets or documents to keep teams aligned with their roles; and
- Biometric Authentication, made available through a partnership with ThumbSignIn, lets non-desk workers log into devices across multiple using a fingerprint or facial identification, with no information stored or transmitted.
Groupe.io also compiles and analyzes data from users on the platform on the backend, which allows retailers to make data-driven decisions. The tool’s dashboard lets users view automatic performance reports based on daily work habits and missed deadlines.
