“It's important to have an ecosystem of connected tools instead of a list of standalone utilities. We like that we're able to integrate YouEarnedIt into our other tools, so it's even easier to use.”
AUSTIN, TX (PRWEB) April 13, 2016
To meet the real-time demands of today’s workforce, HR software solution YouEarnedIt completed a full integration with messaging platform Slack, allowing customers to seamlessly use its recognition and reward system via the popular communication tool.
The Slack integration means YouEarnedIt customers can send employee-to-employee recognition without moving from one application to another. YouEarnedIt executives believe this announcement is another advancement in their ongoing mission to provide a technology-first solution that will keep the ever-evolving workforce engaged and happy in the workplace.
“We make it a practice to seek feedback from customers on how we can make the product better fit their needs,” said Autumn Manning, CEO of YouEarnedIt. “Slack’s popularity just keeps growing, as did our customer requests for an integration. We decided to build upon and expand the framework of a Slack integration developed by Spredfast, one of our first adopter customers. We built for the customer using a foundation built by a customer.”
The integration with Slack makes sending and viewing employee feedback and recognition, and linking back to the core YouEarnedIt platform, seamless. This frictionless experience increases employees’ ability to connect to others, send real-time feedback, and better immerse themselves in their company’s culture. Leaders at Spredfast expressed that the ease of accessing YouEarnedIt’s open API helped them lay the foundation to lower the recognition barrier.
“One of the best ways we can recognize when our coworkers go above and beyond is with YouEarnedIt,” said Tom Grochowicz, Engineer Manager for the social software company. “It's important to have an ecosystem of connected tools instead of a list of standalone utilities. We like that we're able to integrate YouEarnedIt into our other tools, so it's even easier to use.”
Grochowicz said that so far approximately 400 users from his company have authorized use of the app, and nearly all of them have used it to send points.
In addition to the Slack integration, which is now available to all YouEarnedIt customers, the company has released the third version of their mobile app, updated with real-time notifications, enhanced analytics, and a user-friendly interface for mobile-centric employees.
A recent report from HR expert Josh Bersin on technology trends in the workplace called apps the future of the workplace, suggesting that software will take a backseat to HR applications that are as easy to use as Facebook or Instagram. YouEarnedIt’s simple and engaging platform caters to employee's preferred communication devices, including desktop, iOS and Android, and now Slack. Companies that use YouEarnedIt see an improvement in sales, employee retention, customer service, KPI's, and company profitability.
