April 11, 2023 / Microsoft Teams Blog

In today’s rapidly changing business landscape, frontline workers play a crucial role in driving customer satisfaction and business success. However, managing and engaging frontline employees can be challenging for organizations.

While Microsoft Teams is a popular tool for collaboration and communication, it may not be the best fit for frontline workers. In this blog post, we will explore how WorkJam can provide a better solution for managing and engaging frontline workers, and ultimately improving the employee experience.


What is WorkJam?

WorkJam is a comprehensive digital frontline workplace that enables organizations to manage and engage their frontline workforce more efficiently. The solution is designed to provide frontline workers with everything they need to succeed, including scheduling, task management, communication, training, and more.


Why WorkJam is better than Microsoft Teams for the frontline workforce?

Tailored to the needs of frontline workers: WorkJam is purpose-built for the frontline workforce, with features and functionalities specifically designed to meet their unique needs.. On the other hand, Microsoft Teams is a more general collaboration tool that can be better suited for desk workers and may not be as relevant to frontline workers. WorkJam helps employers manage their frontlines in ways that Microsoft Teams cannot. For example:

    • Robust scheduling and task management capabilities: WorkJam’s scheduling and task management features are powerful tools for managing frontline workers. With WorkJam, managers can create schedules, assign tasks, and track progress in real-time. This level of visibility and control helps ensure that frontline workers are productive and efficient, which can have a positive impact on customer satisfaction.
    • Noiseless communication: WorkJam’s employee communication tools offer advanced features and granular controls in comparison to those available on Microsoft Teams. WorkJam enables businesses to have more control over channel membership, access to channels based on compensable time reducing risk of liability to the organization, and the ability to create company-wide channels.
    • Limitless channels: With WorkJam, you can easily launch special program channels for over 25,000 users. Teams’ limitations of 25k users per channel causes enterprises to suffer from disjointed communications across the organization. This level of control allows businesses to better manage their frontline communications and ensure that messages are delivered to the right people at the right time.
    • Training and development: WorkJam offers a range of training and development tools that can help frontline workers improve their skills and advance their careers. The digital frontline workplace provides access to online courses, training videos, and other resources that can help employees acquire new skills and knowledge.
  • Analytics and insights: WorkJam’s analytics and reporting tools provide managers with valuable insights into their frontline workforce. The platform tracks key performance indicators, such as productivity and attendance, enabling managers to identify areas for improvement and make data-driven decisions.

In conclusion, WorkJam’s super app is a better solution for managing and engaging frontline workers than Microsoft Teams. With its tailored features and functionalities, robust scheduling and task management capabilities, noiseless communication, training and development tools, and analytics and insights, WorkJam can help organizations ensure that their frontline workforce is productive, efficient, and engaged.
