Why apps are the next big thing for the digital age office

January 22, 2019 Sanjana Saluja

With over five million apps available across the world, just about every fathomable function of daily life can be aided by a finger-tap on a smartphone. As more companies look to improve productivity and engagement, they have started to leverage workplace apps. JLL Real Views finds out more.

     

Humans spend at least two hours a day on apps. But so far this U$1.3 trillion market has barely serviced the place people spend most of their waking hours: the workplace.

That’s starting to change. Workplace apps are increasingly being used for tasks like booking meeting rooms, ordering a morning coffee for collection upon arrival at work, or signing up for extracurricular activities like running clubs. The promise is increased productivity and better engagement with the company.

“As our professional and personal lives increasingly blend, there is a growing appetite for apps to communicate with us in the workplace,” says Michael Taggart, Head of Digital Solutions in Australia for JLL.
