REDWOOD CITY, CA – May15, 2020: Simpplr, the employee communications and engagement platform marketed as today’s modern intranet, has announced data from customer usage that shows that nearly all employee users have logged in and depended on this as a critical resource. The uptick in usage can be contributed to centralizing crisis communication during this unprecedented time and shows that distributed work from home employees now more than ever need a source of truth to find critical information to stay informed of news and find experts to connect with across the organization.
“Organizations are in a transition as they adapt to a larger remote workforce,” said Dhiraj Sharma, CEO of Simpplr. “Simpplr is bridging the gap between leadership and the workforce by creating a virtual headquarters focused on critical information, curation, and personalization.”
The urgency to a work from home transition and COVID-19 show that intranets are a much needed solution to compliment the tech stack of 2020. On average, Simpplr sees adoption rates of 60% which is already 6x the industry average as organizations try to make sure that their employees stay productive and socially connected.
Solutions like internal communication platforms aren’t going to go away as we slowly enter the next phase with organizations looking at hybrid WFH solutions and plans for return to the office. Employees now more than ever need to be on the same page.
During this transition and shift in internal communications, Simpplr has seen a number of major milestones:
Growth in Adoption: Employees are looking for critical information and to remain socially connected. Active users are at an all time high of almost 90% which is up from an already high average.
Increase in Content Publishing/Readership: As news changes daily, content creation is vital in sharing updates with the broader organization. Content consumption has doubled year over year.
