Communications Tools Comparison Chart
Compare the communication tools and technology options to consider when building a strategy.
Communication channels and tools are a huge component of a deskless employee communication strategy. One of the biggest mistakes that organizations make is assuming they can share information with these workforces in the same way they would communicate with office or deskbound employees. Frontline workers require a much different approach to ensure that information is being shared when and where they need it.
But what tools and channels are right for your organization? Our communication tool comparison chart will help you weigh your options. This chart outlines the top nine communication tool types, complete with pros and cons for each.

These workers need a specialized communication strategy, and an audit is the first step.
