Contact us

Using an employee app is the best way to streamline human resource processes and deliver more service to your employees. A well-built employee app has the potential to transform the employee experience for your entire workforce, for example by automating many repetitive tasks. Appronto possesses a vast amount of experience when it comes to building employee apps. Want to know what an employee app is and how such a solution can benefit your workforce? Read on…

What is an employee app?

Share information quickly and easily with your employees and reach everyone! Develop high-quality target content and create interaction by sharing news, activities or an interactive video. Send messages to all employees or only to selected groups or individuals. Or attract attention with push notifications to quickly get everyone’s attention on important news. An employee app makes all of this possible. As an added bonus, you also get a number of extra benefits:

  • Send fewer emails and reach all of your employees directly, wherever they are!
  • Create interaction and increase employee engagement.
  • Share news and activities simply and quickly.

The building stones of success

Employee apps are far from new, but they’re still gravely underused in many professional working environments. How do you ensure that your employee app becomes a hit? Be sure to include the following elements in your development and implementation process:


  • Avoid complex onboarding processes to speed up adoption.
  • Make sure the app works intuitively. Take a careful look at social media ventures for inspirational examples.


  • Share and communicate all information about your app with your entire team.
  • Provide attractive and working functionalities, such as content, video and polls.


  • Make sure the app is available anytime and anywhere.
  • Use the app to get rid of long queues of unread emails.


  • Integrate the app with your existing tools and systems. Consider, for example, systems for time registration, HR applications and leave systems.
  • Choose an app that is available out of the box and has custom integrations.


Appronto has a standard employee application that we can tailor to the specific desires and needs of your organisation. The basic version is already very richly equipped and has the following functionalities:

  • The app has an easy-to-use CMS.
  • There are plenty of options to add beautiful content, images and videos.
  • Employees can send and receive personalised messages.
  • You can send push notifications and polls.
  • The application allows deep linking and lets you share messages on social media.
  • You also have ample opportunities to share information about and within your organisation, such as contacts and locations, information about your activities, event overviews, access to your favourite apps, incident reporting, protocol overviews (SEHQ) and checklists (SEHQ).
  • The app is native mobile on Android and IoS.
  • The app has a secure login that uses biometric identification.
  • You have the option to delete content from your device quickly, easily and securely.
  • You will receive an engagement dashboard and feedback on the app.

When we set up the employee app for your organisation, we ensure that it will perfectly align with your business and specific technological needs by providing:

  • The integration active directory
  • Its own corporate style (logo, colours, fonts)
  • A solid and streamlined integration structure
  • Slash screen and app icon
  • A QR code for the installation

SPIE Nederland is a subsidiary of the SPIE Group, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the fields of energy and communication. SPIE Nederland assists its customers in the design, implementation, operation and maintenance of network systems, industrial installations and energy and building installations. SPIE Nederland is one of the top three technical service providers in the Netherlands.


SPIE has about 5,000 employees, many of whom work on location. To manage the communication flow, SPIE already had an employee app called inSPIE. But it no longer met today’s needs and requirements. For example, the old system was slow and had limited user-friendliness. Therefore, only a minority of the company’s employees actually used the application on a regular basis.

Since it is important to keep the entire team involved and informed about what is going on in the company, SPIE has opted for the user-friendly Appronto employee app. The new app contains all the necessary information, focuses on interaction and makes communication easier and much more fun. In addition, the app serves as an effective central communication and meeting tool for all employees, regardless of whether they work in an office-based environment or outside.

Do you want to work with an employee app, just like SPIE Nederland?

Appronto is happy to think along with you without obligation!
