Industry leader SchwörerHaus relies on MEXS CompanyMessenger
The MEXS CompanyMessenger will be the digital solution for mobile corporate communication at SchwörerHaus in the form of an employee app
From now on, 1,850 employees of the Schwörer Group will be able to communicate quickly and easily with each other via chat in their own community using the MEXS CompanyMessenger. And all this in strict compliance with the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Schwörer employees use the newly developed employee app either as a desktop app on the browser of their computer or tablet or on their cell phone.
A unique feature of the CompanyMessenger is that no personal cell phone number of the employee is required to use it; instead, communication takes place exclusively via a unique user ID. CompanyMessenger accesses the central contact book of the Schwörer Group and not the employee’s personal contacts.
And this is how simply the new CompanyMessenger works for all Schwörer employees: The employee downloads the app from the Apple or Google app stores onto his or her chosen end device and can start immediately by entering the personnel number and individual login data.
In addition to chat communication, Schwörer’s marketing department also uses the so-called “News Editor” and sends push messages to all Schwörer employees or just to one of the seven Schwörer plants. The employees can all be reached easily, promptly and directly in this way.
The SchwörerHaus assembly teams, which are deployed throughout Europe, can organize and exchange information in chat groups within CompanyMessenger. Even an employee’s personal time account can be quickly accessed via CompanyMessenger. In the near future, it will also be possible to include external users, such as suppliers or subcontractors, in the Schwörer chat community.
“What was important for SchwörerHaus when selecting CompanyMessenger as an employee app was first and foremost a similarly simple operation of chat communication as with WhatsApp®, so that no training of users is necessary when rolling out the app. Everyone can use WhatsApp® in their private lives and can therefore intuitively find their way around CompanyMessenger,” says Markus Schwörer, Head of IT at SchwörerHaus.
Thomas Teufel, MEXS Managing Director and Member of the Board of UMT AG, adds: “The novel MEXS CompanyMessenger solution enables companies today to involve all employees, including those in production or field service, in communication via chat. And if desired, the push messages can also be muted using the so-called “after-work button” if the employee does not want to be bothered.”
“We are pleased to expand our customer base with SchwörerHaus and at the same time to welcome our first customer on the new SaaS platform from MEXS. With SaaS (“Software as a Service”), we are opening up a new dimension of scalability for our business model through lucrative subscription models. However, development is not standing still: We are already working on a concept that allows messages from different messenger systems to be exchanged. This will put MEXS in the league of unified communications providers,” continues Thomas Teufel.
UMT AG is building a scalable business model with the MEXS messaging platform and in the future will offer the newly designed CompanyMessenger solution via attractive subscription models, especially for German medium-sized businesses.
“The CompanyMessenger, as a “Made in Germany” product introduces companies to chat communication without any worries about protection and confidentiality of their data. With this solution, UMT has entered the growing market of chat communication for mobile working and thus sees extraordinary growth potential for MEXS,” said Dr. Jürgen Schulz, Spokesman of the Board of Management at UMT AG.
