Texts and email are always good for communication in business and social lives, but what happens when your team in all based on an away mission and texting (or emailing) is just not practical. Mobile teams need to get the work done and often rely on quick and accurate communication. As always in business, time is money and it needs to be saved.
You can connect with any employer or team member by using a designation – no mobile phone number is needed. Freshteam lets you see exactly where the team member is, right down to the actual address. The premium version even alerts you when one of them gets close to a location you have pre-requested.
There is no time wasted wondering who is where. Let us say you have a team of engineers working out at night on the rail network, you need to know where the engineers are in the field, so Freshteam lets you know right away. Imagine the time and effort to call or text each one and ask what their current location happens to be?
We liked the idea that the geolocation of members is private. And you can control who you share the information with and when. For any office or business which has roving team members working independently from the head office, this has to be the best. We know so many businesses are asking colleagues to work from home as waiting for them to turn and get to the office is often touted as non-productive. However, so too is a colleague working from home who has decided to swan off down to the shops or spend too long at a café during a lunch break. Freshteam is like a spy in the business that keeps all your working staff members who are home based as closely monitored as the office-based staff colleagues.
It will only take a quick glance at the app to see who is online and look at the chats tab to see where the communication is actually happening – within the Freshteam conversations or on the chats tab. But what we loved about Freshteam is the high definition sound produced when you create a group to have a business meeting through the app.
It means you no longer bother with those PIN numbers, dial up before a conference call or waiting to be connected. Freshteam has so many features that any business using employers out on the field should take a closer look, we will.
