A new app for businesses on the iPhone and iPad has been receiving attention. The Razzn app by independent South Florida based Razzn LLC makes it easier to keep in contact with your teams while they’re on the road, and to plan schedules and initiate responses to client calls.
At it’s core Razzn is a messaging app, but the features go well beyond what you’re accustomed to seeing. First, there are the calendar and scheduling capabilities fully integrated into the messag-ing core. Making it easy to send meeting invitations without the fear of lost emails. To gain the full power of the application we suggest creating a Razzn Workgroup™. Once your team members are a part of your workgroup, setting up and sharing weekly schedules is a breeze.
The user interface for the Razzn Easy Schedule Creator™ couldn’t be simpler. At the click of a button send reminders, or notify the team of schedule changes. Although the app is only available on iPhone/iPad at the moment (an Android version is expected in mid 2017), the workgroup schedule can be shared with team members on other platforms via traditional text messaging. Simply add users from your device phonebook, and Razzn will format a text message containing the weekly schedule. While the calendar and scheduling features of Razzn are rather impressive, the thing that makes it stand out is the visibility it gives you while your team members are “on duty”.
When you have your team registered on the Razzn app, it will keep track of when your team members are scheduled to work and during those hours keep a log of their location . At any in-stance you can view the current location of all on duty members of your team. Visibility into your teams’ current location can be a powerful tool in improving efficiency. Razzn includes tools aimed at just that. For example, while viewing the current locations of your team simply type an address and get travel routes and times for each. Razzn will highlight the route for the team member with the shortest travel time, to help choosing the right person to respond and also provide a more ac-curate ETA to your customers.
Razzn will log the location of team members during a shift, with this capability assigned users can review activity at the end of a shift . You can view a trail of the entire shifts activity, or play/rewind/pause the trail as the logged location activity is played on the map.
