Streamlining Frontline Operations: Why WorkJam Outperforms Yoobic for Complex Organizations
May 8, 2023 / WorkJam vs Yoobic Blog
This week, we will compare WorkJam’s functionality to Yoobic’s as we continue our blog series taking a closer look into WorkJam-style frontline solutions. There are differences that buyers should be aware of when comparing WorkJam’s super app to Yoobic.
One of the key differentiators is that WorkJam is an all-in-one app that offers the “four operational pillars of frontline work”, as described by industry analysts: communications, scheduling, training and learning, and task management. We call this total Workforce Orchestration® because these features work in harmony with one another to ensure that your entire organization is on the same page, working towards the same goals, and that every employee is utilized to their full potential. Workforce Orchestration® streamlines operations, minimizes disruptions, and maximizes productivity, making it an essential feature for businesses looking to stay ahead of the competition.
In comparison, Yoobic’s platform lacks complete frontline orchestration as it focuses primarily on task management and execution, with fewer features for communication, training, and development. While this may be suitable for certain businesses, it may not meet the needs of more complex, enterprise organizations, those of which are looking for a more comprehensive solution.
Another advantage of WorkJam is its user-friendly interface. The platform was designed with frontline employees in mind, to be intuitive, easy to navigate. And, described as “social media for the frontline” by an employee at one of America’s largest multinational food, snack, and beverage corporations. With a mobile-first approach that allows employees to access the platform from their devices, this is crucial for businesses that have thousands of employees and dozens of locations. WorkJam’s 89% frontline adoption rate further exemplifies the ease of use and the high employee engagement WorkJam customers are benefiting from daily.
WorkJam offers a more intuitive interface than Yoobic, which is critical because it leads to less training and support for your employees. This reduces cost and frustration within your organization.
WorkJam’s highly customizable platform allows employers to tailor the app to meet the specific needs of their business, including target audiences, deep analytics, branding, workflows, and permissions. This level of flexibility allows businesses to create a digital frontline workplace that truly meets their unique requirements.
With more limited options and functionalities, buyers should be aware that Yoobic’s solution may not be able to offer the transparency and visibility that their robust organization and HQ ultimately need to connect with their frontline.
Overall, WorkJam’s 4 essential operational pillars and Workforce Orchestration offer a more comprehensive and integrated approach to workforce management than Yoobic’s product. From communication and scheduling to task management and training and development, WorkJam’s platform allows employers to manage all aspects of their workforce in one place, leading to increased productivity, engagement, and job satisfaction.
As stated in the recent global study, Elevate the Frontline to Elevate the Business, “a mature frontline reaps business results. The more advanced an organization’s adoption of frontline operationalization technologies is, the more likely they are to overperform on revenue and overall business goals, including increased operational efficiency, customer experience CX), brand differentiation, and reduced costs.”
