How to successfully communicate with employees in over 120 countries at the same time?

A multinational company faced challenges of reaching all employees in 120 countries at the same time, was no challenge at all for PLAYipp . Read on to find out the prerequisite for success.

The problem

As a geographically dispersed company with employees in over 120 countries, getting everyone to pull in the same direction has long been a challenge. The ability to communicate information through one single channel is a prerequisite for success.

Why PLAYipp for digistal signage?

We felt that we wanted to intensify the flow of information. That’s when we started looking for a communication system that could achieve just that. We then opted for this type of information screen and chose PLAYipp as supplier, explains Chief Marketing Officer at the company.

The solution

The information screens are used to quickly distribute information to the entire organisation as well as partners. A wide variety of content is published, including information about new business, new partners, updates from internal and external meetings, new employee presentations, and an information feed with news from our website and LinkedIn. It catches the attention and interest of people passing by and provides a fantastic insight into the breadth of work our company delivers.

– Besides the screens, we also have an intranet, newsletter and webinar for our sales people. For major things, we send out an e-mail to concerned employees, says Global Communication Manager.

Impact of the solution

The firm conducts regular surveys among its employees about what they think about the information channel in order to constantly develop, improve, and sustain interest.

To meet this demand, more film content has been published, a process for information about new employees has been introduced and they are constantly trying to vary the content and its appearance.

– PLAYipp’s solution is a smooth, easy and fast way to communicate information to the organization, which is more fun than just sending out a regular email. The screens are by far the channel we share the most internal news through on a regular basis at our company, says the Manager.

How did PLAYipp digital signage help with internal communication? 

The multinational firm has been collaborating with PLAYipp for just over three years. When they were looking for a supplier, it was critical that employees in the organisation could easily and quickly manage the system’s content. It was also important that the supplier was geographically close and able to provide support quickly. PLAYipp fulfilled all of these requirements. The rollout in the organisation was done in stages, with the primary focus being on sites within its own company before the company installed screens at its partners.
‘We now have a communication feed that is visible to all employees worldwide. The decisive factor is that we can always ensure that all employees receive the latest news and that everyone receives the same information at the same time’
You can use built-in tools that create content for you in addition to figuring out what type of content your audience wants to view. These engines only require a few details to generate content that is tailored and optimised for a digital screen. From time-zones around the world, currency, stocks information, live news feeds to travel information of bus, train and tram services directly surrounding the individual. This form of content is actually valuable, which reflects well on your company and marketing efforts.
