Employee App Success for Winter Storm Crisis
Did you have a way to communicate with employees during the Winter Storm? When 3 million households lost power in Texas, employees charged their smartphones in their cars to stay connected.
Enspire employee apps connected businesses with employees for crisis response during the storm. “To reduce risk, improve safety and stay connected businesses need to communicate with employees where they are – on their smartphones” confirms Amanda Wiles, Enspire CEO. Enspire clients stay connected with target push alerts and personalized app experiences on every smartphone.

+ Real-time Campus closure alerts
+ Superintendent messages
+ Target app experiences
+ Employee Surveys to identify when it was safe to open each campus.
