9 Reasons to Make Your Content Mobile

Feb 28, 2018 3:42:34 PM

In the past, many companies wasted valuable time with unproductive training classes. They dedicated countless hours to lengthy, slow-paced training sessions that could have been condensed into a much simpler format through a mobile-based program. Making the switch to mobile content will keep your employees engaged throughout the training process, and will save time and effort in the long run. If you’re interested in revolutionizing your company’s training program, here are the top 9 reasons to make your content mobile.

1. Mobile content is travel-friendly

Mobile content enables your employees to access training material anywhere, whether they’re sitting at their desks or traveling across the country. A relief for employees who travel frequently, they’ll no longer have to worry about carrying along laptops or finding access to a desktop while on a business trip. Since most people have their cell phones within an arm’s reach at all times, mobile content is the best  choice for modern companies.



2. You’ll save money,  paper and prevent unnecessary waste

In some cases, employers will go through thousands of sheets of paper during their training programs. By switching to mobile content, you won’t have to waste paper by printing endless copies of training material. This will save your company money in the long run—and you’ll be able to benefit the environment by reducing waste.

3. Save time by streamlining the onboarding process

The growing trend in training is to send small, easy-to-digest bits of content to your employees via SMS. You won’t waste time with lengthy training presentations that your employees can’t focus on. Instead, you’ll keep their attention throughout the training process and get them ready to perform their jobs much faster and more effectively.

 
 4. Your employees won’t have to deal with clunky handbooks

Mobile content allows you to offer a modern approach to the traditional employee handbook. Instead of having to leaf through countless pages of irrelevant information, they’ll be able to use the “search” feature on their phones to find what they’re looking for in an instant. And best of all, they’ll be able to access the information from anywhere.


5. Employees can access mobile training materials 24/7

Traditional training programs can only be accessed from 9 to 5. However, a mobile-based program gives your employees the ability to view training materials any time of day or night. If they’re looking to reinforce their training after the work day draws to a close, they’ll be able to review documents directly from their mobile phones. Since they’ll be able to browse training materials from anywhere, they won’t have to worry about forgetting them at work ever again.

7. You’ll be able to easily send out reminders to view new content

9. You’ll be able to provide incentives for employee engagement

Our reporting module allows you to keep track of which documents they downloaded, as well as how long they viewed the content. Additionally, you can view results from polls, quizzes, and surveys in our reporting module. It’s easier than ever to keep track of employee training progress with mobile content—and you can even gamify training stats by displaying points on the Leaderboard!
