Thrive releases new app to help businesses communicate rapidly during the outbreak

  • Belfast-based tech firm Thrive has launched its new Thrive.App rapid deployment communication app to help businesses communicate during the outbreak.

    The COVID-19 outbreak has heavily impacted the way that businesses communicate, both internally between staff and externally with partners and stakeholders. More businesses are now working remotely and need scaleable ways to communicate with staff, and for many that means deploying a custom company smartphone app.

    Belfast-based commstech firm Thrive announced the launch of its new communication app platform Thrive.App this week, which allows businesses to rapidly deploy their own communication service for staff. Companies can create customised themes for their brands and select from a number of pre-defined content templates to customise the communication environment for their particular business needs.

    The app is available for iPhones via the Apple App Store and Android devices via the Play Store, but companies will need to become clients of Thrive to access them. The service is charged to companies using a simple subscription model based on a price per user per month, helping it scale to fit both small businesses and large organisations.

    Thrive CEO James Scott commented on the launch: "Our newest Thrive.App will help many companies manage the complex work required to move comms from noticeboards to mobile phones. It’s engineered to make the setup, sign off and success of introducing a digital communication channel easier than ever before, taking the risk and worry away from launching a new solution."

    "In this new world, in the wake of Covid-19, business transformation is happening everywhere and each organisation is relying on technology more than ever before. With over 80% of the world’s workforce being deskless, employee communication apps are playing key roles in keeping front line teams informed, engaged, supported and recognised."
