GetApp ranks Team on the Run as a top 25 App for Messaging & Chat

Team on the Run comes in at number 13 on GetApps rankings of the top 25 apps for messaging and chat.

GetApp’s quarterly ranking showcases the top 25 Instant Messaging & Chat apps based in the cloud. Each app is scored using five factors, worth 20 points each, for a total possible score out of 100. These factors include user reviews, integrations, mobile app availability, media presence, and security. Each app’s score is independent of commercial interests and existing relationships that GetApp has with app vendors.

“Team on the Run makes its debut in GetApp’s new Category Leader ranking for Instant Messaging & Chat. Coming in strong at #13 with an overall total score of 34, Team on the Run showcases its strength when it comes to its security protocols and mobile apps, scoring a solid 13 points for each. An additional 4 points for reviews solidifies Team on the Run as one of the leading Instant Messaging & Chat solutions in the cloud,” says GetApp researcher Suzie Blaszkiewicz.

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.

Group Messaging: On the Run

Group messaging is the best thing since sliced bread. Long gone are the days of copying and pasting the exact same text message ten separate times to ten different people. Or the confusion of making plans with a large group of people, the difficulty of notifying everyone about any changes and keeping everyone on the same page.

It is one of the things we take for granted, but I don’t think anyone can imagine a world where group messaging did not exist. This is why messaging apps such as Facebook Messenger & Groupme have become so popular in our society – they make group messaging easily accessible with the tap of a few simple buttons.

Team on the Run provides an entire new take on group messages. One of the basic concepts of the app is that it is one huge group chat between you and all the members of your company or business. Conversations can literally take place with every single person in one place at one time, no matter how big or how small of a company it is.

In addition, TOTR includes another feature, in which there can be smaller group chats for the different groups within the company, for example a Marketing Department group chat or a Sales Department group chat, or even a group chat to place a lunch order for all the members in office on a particular day. Not only can you communicate with colleagues around the country, but you can even include members from all over the world. Group collaboration has never been so easy!
And again, unlike Groupme, Facebook and other messaging apps, any information exchanged through Team on the Run is always protected by our state-of-the-art encryption system, and therefore will always remain 100% confidential.

Web chat to mobile: On the Run

Imagine a typical day in the office. You’re currently working on a business deal with a client online when all of a sudden, your babysitter informs you she can no longer pick up your son from school. Or maybe you lost your phone in the clutter of your desk while in the middle of an extremely important conversation with your boss.

No worries – that’s exactly the problem that the web-to-chat feature of Team on the Run targets.

If you have an iPhone and a Macbook, you know exactly how useful this feature can prove to be. With iMessage, every conversation updates instantaneously between iPhone and Macbook, and vice versa, so that your conversation can continue whether you are lounging around in bed on your laptop, or on the go with only your phone. Which is perfect since we live in an era where no one goes anywhere or does anything without their phone in hand.

Similarly, with Team on the Run’s WebChat feature, all conversations, whether they are group chats or individual chats, sync in real time from phone to desktop, and vice versa. However, unlike iMessage, these chats remain secure while being synced – just another guarantee provided by Team on the Run.

In other words, through Team on the Run, it is extremely easy to communicate from mobile devices via our secure app OR on laptops/desktops via our secure web browser log-in. No matter where you are and no matter what device you are using, your data will always be synced and ready to take care of!

Walkie-Talkie: On the Run

Walkie-talkie’s are an age old tool that have been used for nearly half a century to transmit communication from one device to the next. Nowadays we have walkie-talkie mobile apps to help aide but they may fall flat in terms of encryption, ease of use or the ability to be fully cohesive with your business and employees.

With Team on the Run, turn any smartphone into the Ultimate New Generation Cloud Walkie-Talkie. Team on the run offers businesses enhanced Push-to-Talk for Drivers, Dispatch Managers and other Field and Remote Personnel (And more!).

wy-vs-totr-virtual-wt.png
A comparison between TOTR and traditional Walkie-talkie’s

Team on the Run Walkie-Talkie also eliminates the proximity issue allowing you to connect team members wherever they are located around the globe. This makes it a valuable communication solution not only for teams dispersed in the field but for office workers as well, providing a cost-effective alternative to expensive long distance conference calls / IP phones or vulnerable free conferencing software.

The best part is TOTR wasn’t just built out as a walkie-talkie but offers so much more in the form of VoIP calling, secure messaging, and file sharing, just to name a few.
