MobileUp Software has released new functionality that provides groups within an association, school, or organization an easy and cost-effective method for communicating and conducting their business through mobile technology.
Every member- or student-focused organization relies on smaller groups (committees, chapters, clubs, etc.) to help individuals connect, contribute, and develop a sense of belonging.
Group leaders face immediate recruitment and communication tasks, often creating digital communities (e.g. Facebook groups, group chats, email lists, etc.) outside the networks of their organization or school and without coordination with other groups.
With its new Groups functionality, MobileUp is helping organizations and schools centralize group management within the confines of their own custom-branded apps in addition to the other functionality they provide as part of a mobile 365 engagement strategy.
“Group leaders can now communicate and organize their activities in an app their members or students already have,” said Tom DeBacco, President and CEO of MobileUp Software. “Our Groups functionality helps our customers provide a convenience to their group leaders, many of whom are volunteers and in need of tools to engage members and drive participation in activities.”
As app users, members and students access a listing and information about the available groups in their association or school from a link on the home screen.
They join or follow groups that interest them with a tap. The app then builds a live feed that organizes the latest announcements, notifications, events, photos, polls, and discussions from their groups in chronological order.
App administrators and group leaders create posts for the feed using browser- or app-based tools. They also have access to built-in reports that show their members’ overall participation levels and details such as RSVPs for specific events.
Groups is available as part of a 365 Engagement solution.
