What does the LiveTiles app do?
The LiveTiles app is our cloud service helping employees to stay connected and informed by enabling organizations to reach and align all staff via a mobile app (on all iOS and Android devices) or a browser, communicate important updates, send out alerts, gather feedback, find and stay in touch with colleagues and share work instructions, knowledge and information. The LiveTiles app does not require any base technology to be in place and works well with both Office 365, Microsoft Teams and Google, or even without any such platform.

Whether you are hit by restrictions preventing normal work routines or need to restructure your team to prepare for such an event, this will have a major effect on both your ability to communicate and on the psychological state of your staff:
Why use the LiveTiles employee app and not Email or WhatsApp?
|Problem||The LiveTiles Solution|
|Not all employees have a corporate email account||The LiveTiles employee app does not require corporate user accounts but accepts any email account (incl. Gmail, Outlook, others).|
|WhatsApp does not provide good user and group management features
Maintaining mailing lists or WhatsApp groups is cumbersome and error-prone.
|The LiveTiles employee app provides powerful user and group management and comes with integrated Azure AD and an Azure AD B2C user directory.|
|Neither email nor WhatsApp are suited to distribute information in structured way (e.g. policies, work instructions, emergency plans that always need to be up to date and found and accessed quickly over a longer time)||The LiveTiles employee app supports various content types such as structured pages, documents, news, alerts, social posts and events and allows to push update notifications to users if required.|
|Content in mailboxes and WhatsApp groups is often lost in information overload or spam||The LiveTiles employee app is a dedicated mobile communication channel in a separate app controlled by the organisation|
