Cloud-based HR & Payroll software provider ELMO Software Limited (ASX: ELO) to has launched a new communications module which will aid the growing number of work from home operations.
According to ELMO’s CEO and Co-founder, Danny Lessem, businesses in Australia and New Zealand can now seamlessly instant message and initiate Zoom conference calls all from within ELMO’s single, integrated cloud-based HR & Payroll platform.
Mr Lessem said that with the recent rapid widespread adoption of remote working, providing consistent and efficient communication to employees has become a key challenge for many businesses.
He said the latest module, known as “ELMO Connect”, enhances ELMO’s one-stop-shop solution to include the ability to start instant chat messages and launch Zoom meetings whilst continuing to manage the array of HR and payroll tasks.
In addition, to help customers during this unprecedented crisis, ELMO is making the latest module available for all of their existing customers for a six month period at no initial cost following which customers can opt into continue usage on an annual subscription basis.
ELMO Connect includes several key features including:
- Peer to peer or group chats with anyone within the organisation
- Group channels so organisations can rally teams around a shared project or initiative
- Send attachments through ELMO Chat so teams can collaborate in real time
- Schedule and launch Zoom meetings directly through the ELMO Connect module
We saw the need among many of our customers to manage how their employees are communicating and collaborating while working remotely,” Mr Lessem said.
“To help businesses through this unprecedented crisis we have expedited the release of our communication module and made it available to our customers at no initial cost for six months. Being able to instantly message or start a Zoom meeting with colleagues all from the one platform means businesses can improve their communication without having to burden their workforce with multiple logins and dashboards. The new module further strengthens ELMO’s value proposition and will provide an additional future revenue stream.”
