Digital Transformation: Corporate Directory

As mentioned last week, we are going to highlight a Team on the Run feature and it’s use in the digital workplace.

Corporate Directory

Team on the Run provides businesses with their own corporate directory within the app and online. The corporate directory allows you to provide information on each employee including number, name, email, position and groups that they are a part of.

Build a Strong Team

Having a corporate Rolodex of your co-workers at your fingertips makes both new and old employees feel more comfortable within their work environment. Need to get In-touch with someone from HR? Just look up the HR group in your directory and instantly get in contact with the right person. Stuck working from home one day and don’t have a co-worker’s phone number or email on file? With Team on the Run that strain of hunting down a co-worker’s information is gone.

Establish Open Communication

One of the keys of having a corporate directory through Team on the Run, is for its ease of use when establishing open communication across departments and teams alike. When bringing on a new employee a strain I noticed in the past, using other messenger services like Skype, Slack, and Microsoft Lync, is you have to add people yourself.

When a company utilizes Team on the Run and brings on a new employee, once they download the app they have instant access to the entire directory of their company. They can simply be placed into Marketing, Sales, HR, or whichever channel is needed and instantly feel comfortable.

Having access to corporate groups aides in cross communication between multiple departments which leads to better overall performance within a company.

Streamline Processes

Within the directory, you have the option to set up group chats with co-workers and even title the conversation. Having the ability to title conversations is a good way to stay on top of projects, and with the ability to add people to the group chats you can make sure that everyone needed for the project is receiving the same messages.

In my role, having access to groups in the directory makes it simple to send documents, calendars, and tasks to multiple departments with just a few clicks. The goal of our corporate directory is to streamline all your business processes through it. Whether you need to touch base with someone from marketing, send a document to sales, or set up a project across multiple departments, Team on the Run gives you the ability to handle all, instantly, through one singular app.

Keep your Business and Personal Communication Separate

Team on the Run’s corporate directory runs side-by-side with your own contacts, thus allowing you to keep both your business communication and your personal communication separate from one another. No need to worry about texting the “right Mike” and being unsure if it’s rec league basketball Mike, or work Mike.

Team on the Run takes the simplistic approach to giving you an all-in-one corporate communications platform across all your devices. No matter where you are, just log into your Team on the Run account and you’ll have instant access to your company without the hassles.

With Team on the Run, our aim is to relieve you of the pain points of the digital age and help aide you on the transition to the all digital future.



Each Monday, over the course of the next several weeks we will highlight a feature provided by Team on the Run and it’s place within a company’s digital transformation.

What is Business Process Management?

The term “BPM” or “Business Process Management” is thrown around a lot nowadays, and rightfully so, but what does it mean? What can BPM do for YOUR business?

Business Process Management, or BPM, is a systematic approach to making an organization’s workflow more effective, more efficient and more capable of adapting to an ever-changing environment. A business process is an activity or set of activities that will accomplish a specific organizational goal.

To break it down further:

Business: a person, partnership, or corporation engaged in commerce,manufacturing, or a service; profit-seeking enterprise or concern.

Process: a continuous action, operation, or series of changes taking place in a definite manner:

Management: the person or persons controlling and directing the affairs of a business, institution

Therefore the main purpose, and point of BPM is to simplify ones business. By enabling a software that helps with the automation of ones business you are choosing to curate and create simplistic ways of navigating your business.

With a BPM solution you can take HR documents, vacation request forms, time sheets, design docs, ect. Store them all in one solution, send them out, fill them out, approve or deny straight from one piece of software. The list is truly endless and made to fit your organizations needs. Gone are the days of filing away endless paper work, wondering where you saved a certain document, or sending out project requests, then having to print said request, then copying it back on a computer for storage.

With a BPM solution you can have the ease of mind in knowing, not only that your documents are safe, but all in one place and easily accessible. BPM is aimed at improving workflow and communication within a company.

Managing tasks and projects has never been easier within a BPM solution. Next week we will dive into how Team on the Run aims to be your all in one BPM solution.

Digital Transformation Made Concrete Part 2: How it can Protect your Business

*Digital Transformation Made Concrete: Part One was made to examine the ‘what’ portion of Digital Transformation, part two will cover the ‘why.’

When we look at the Digital Transformation and how it is shaping companies, one of the most important things to take in is the protection aspect. Company data, files, and even standard emails are at risk on any given day.

In a study done in 2013 by TechTalk, 95.6% of commuters put their company data at risk. This can be done by sending emails over “free” WiFi, or even sending data over 4G. You don’t realize in doing so that you are in fact putting your companies data at risk.

Timothy Francis, enterprise lead for Cyber Insurance digs further into the premise stating, “62% of cyber breach victims are small to mid-size businesses, which are at the greatest risk for an attack. Their level of preparation is low, and the costs of customer notification alone can be enough to do a small company irreparable financial harm.” In the same article which written by Rosalie L. Donlon, goes on to explain that the cost of a data breach in just legal fees alone can be crippling for a business.

So what we are looking at now is employees who are unintentionally putting their business at risk just by doing their job. Having a chat over texts or email while at the local coffee shop on their free WiFi is a danger to your company. This is why the digital transformation is important for businesses small to large. This is also where Team on the Run comes in, to help protect your company’s data with our state-of-the-art encryption capabilities.

Our company branded messenger can be used both on mobile and on web, that way you always know that your employees conversations and data is safe at all times. Team on the Run allows you to have your entire company contacts stored in our encrypted platform allowing you to safely send information between co-workers wherever you are.

When it comes to the digital transformation of a business, making sure they are safe and secure for the future is at the forefront. Team on the Run enables you to make sure employees can be accessible to each other, on a safe network, and at all times. No one wants to be the company that has it’s information stolen because employee B needed to send an email to employee A on Dunkin Donuts WiFi, all while using a Gmail account.

Digital Transformation Made Concrete: Part One

Digital transformation, business mobility, mobile enterprise, and some other related buzzwords.

Let’s start by defining the term. I found this definition by Agile Elephant that I think explains the term very clearly:

“Digital transformation is the process of shifting your organization from a legacy approach to new ways of working and thinking using digital, social, mobile and emerging technologies.  It involves a change in leadership, different thinking, the encouragement of innovation and new business models, incorporating digitization of assets and an increased use of technology to improve the experience of your organizations employees, customers, suppliers, partners and stakeholders.”

A few means of digital transformation include the use of analytics, mobility, social media and smart embedded devices to improve on traditional techniques and technologies to aide in smoother, faster and more intuitive internal processes and external customer relations.

The digital transformation is already a reality and the “transformation” side should not be taken lightly, as Phillip Tracy points out in What is Digital Transformation:

“Leading companies of this concept can be found in nearly all industries, with disrupters like Uber providing extreme examples of what digital transformation can achieve. In fact, in 2014 MIT interviewed 157 executives in 50 large companies — typically $1 billion or more in annual sales — and spanning 15 countries. Approximately half of the interviewees were business leaders such as CEOs, line of business managers, marketing heads or COOs, while the other half were IT and technology leaders. The companies interviewed were moving forward with digital transformation at varying speeds and experiencing varying levels of success. MIT found the best companies – those they refer to as “Digirati” – combine digital activity with strong leadership to turn technology into transformation, or what MIT considers reaching “digital maturity.”

As businesses look to integrate these process management tools into their arsenal to improve their companies function, Team on the Run is here to help. Team on the Run provides businesses with a company branded messenger platform that includes features like Push to Talk, NFC tag check in, secure VoIP calls and Geolocation.

The main point of the digital transformation is to reshape the modern enterprise and automatize the processes you go through on a daily basis. Eliminate the hassle passing documents by hand, or logging driver miles for fleet management by digitizing your processes and letting the technology improve your day to day.

One example for Team on the Run and Fleet Management customers is our ability to get rid of expensive outdated equipment by making their processes quicker and more efficient. When you have less steps in a process you can save time, so when you look at something like Geolocation and PTT (Push to Talk) they save time by utilizing both on one device and in one app as opposed to using Walkie-Talkie equipment and a GPS.

In our next post we will look at how the digital transformation can protect your business.
