If you’re using Microsoft 365 for your frontline employees, it’s likely you’re missing out on its full potential. Microsoft 365 is a solid suite that offers tons of value. But when used on the frontline, adoption rates are low (between 5-20%)
Blink solves this. We streamline the power of Microsoft 365; integrate its capabilities; and add complimentary features — all in a single app.
Display and access all SharePoint sites from the Blink Hub.
Display folders and document previews with Universal Search.
Display your daily agenda by bringing your calendar directly into Blink.
Create and join and ad-hoc Teams meeting from Blink chat.
Fragmentation: Microsoft 365 functionality is split across multiple applications, with both Sharepoint and OneDrive used for storage. While this may be acceptable in an office environment, frontline workers are unlikely to download 6+ apps onto their personal phone.
Confusion: For anyone new to Microsoft 365, the applications are far from self-explanatory. Frontline workers don't automatically know which tool they need to perform a particular task, meaning additional training is required.
Desk-based UI: Microsoft’s desktop-first interface requires screen real estate that’s unavailable on mobile platforms. It’s impossible to offer frontline workers the slick, frictionless user experience they have come to expect from mobile-first consumer apps.
You can add SharePoint site libraries, folders and files to the Blink Hub, making them easier to access and view.
Blink supports using Microsoft accounts for login and user management for licenced users. For those without, we offer One-Time Passwords and manual bulk account management.
You can add Power Apps to the Blink Hub as shortcuts. The user must have the appropriate licence, and the Power App must have been shared with them.
Yes! Many of our customers have made a significant cost saving by removing Microsoft 365 licences after deploying Blink. Improvements currently in test will allow you to share stored Sharepoint documents with all Blink users, regardless of whether they have Microsoft accounts.
