In 2017 197 billion apps were downloaded and usage on cellphones overtook desktops in 2018 - 58% of site visits were from mobile devices and in some countries this number reaches 72%.
Ensuring that your employees are compliant is an essential part of many businesses, especially those in regulated industries. The challenge falls when these organizations have to keep every employee up to date with policy and regulations or that all employees and compliance teams can quickly send and approve requests.
Compliance can be complicated, but it should not be. Nowadays technology allows companies to keep up with the changes in regulation and interact with the rules while keeping all employees compliant.
While commuting to work, attending meetings or waiting for a flight at the airport, employees says that mobile is their go-to option. Smartphones and tablets are used everywhere and all the time. The projection is that app downloads will reach 353 billion in 2021.
Mobile Experiences Improve Compliance
Mobile user interfaces are improving, and employees are becoming more accustomed to them. Half of all employees expect their employers to provide a solution, such a mobile friendly tool to make their lives easier. That is why is so important to focus on mobile usability, friendly interface and added features.
When an app provides your employee with an easy to use, fast and intuitive way of complying on the go, they are more likely to take action quickly. Desktop remains very important but creating the possibility to access software from every device is essential.
If you are an organization that need to keep compliant, an app is a solution to reach all your employees on their smartphones, no matter where they are at a given time. This technology has the potential to maintain your team´s compliance regarding regulations, policies and rules.
