INSPIRED BY KIWI INNOVATION
Helping organisations communicate with their staff more effectively. SnapComms uses digital technologies to cut through the clutter and deliver the right messages to the right staff, at the right time. These unmissable channels (and formats) ensure staff are informed of news that’s relevant to them.
Information overload is a significant and growing problem. It prevents organisations from being operationally effective and employees from being well informed.
SnapComms was quick to spot this growing issue, and more than ten years ago, signed up its first customer - Vodafone New Zealand - to use its simple, user-friendly digital solution for internal comms. To this date, there is still no other supplier in the world who offers the breadth and depth of internal communication channels that SnapComms does. Its purpose is to help large organisations break through the clutter of daily communication and deliver important messages to employees – in ways they can't miss.
Based in Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore, SnapComms provides solutions to solve internal communication challenges. Its employee communication software platform provides seven digital tools. Mobile/desktop alerts, scrolling tickers, screensavers and digital newsletters are just some of the comms channels available to internal communicators, all of which bypass email completely. These help businesses deliver internal messages to staff in the best way and at the right time.
Co-founded by Sarah Perry and Chris Leonard, SnapComms is a self-funded, privately owned business that has grown from small beginnings. The majority of its clients are US-based, with a growing client list in Europe and the rest of the world.
Innovation is at the heart of the company’s DNA. This is achieved through a number of initiatives. For example, working closely with universities to attract and recruit interns and graduates each year so that fresh ideas are tapped into; regular customer workshop sessions hosted by our Lead Innovator (this often means jumping on planes and spending quality face-time at customers’ premises); and attending relevant conferences around the world to ensure the SnapComms team remains at the forefront of digital communication technology and retain its competitive edge.
The business is now a global market leader - serving more than 1.5 million paid enterprise users in 75+ countries (including several Fortune 50 companies). It’s a Deloitte Fast 50 and Fast 500 international company. It won the ICT Exporter of the Year Award in 2015. www.snapcomms.com
