San Bruno, CA: May 8, 2018 – Today Sapho, the only employee experience portal designed for the digital workplace, announced a key integration with Microsoft Windows 10 to enable enterprises to deliver event-driven notifications and micro apps natively in Windows in three ways: 1) using toast notifications, 2) through the Action Center, or 3) as an app within My People. When using Sapho Employee Experience Portal with Windows 10, users are able to access and act upon important tasks and data from their existing enterprise systems, directly from Windows 10 without them having to open a single application or log into any systems. The result for employees is a consistent experience across applications, faster task completion, and better access to data, leading to increased employee productivity and engagement.
Sapho Employee Experience Portal uses event-driven notifications and micro apps to surface personalized and relevant tasks and data to employees. These micro apps, built by IT on top of their existing enterprise systems, are delivered to employees in a single interface on any device, intranet, or messenger service. The integration with Windows 10 is the latest endpoint integration from Sapho, and one more step towards fulfilling its mission to deliver critical work to employees wherever they are.
“Windows 10 users in enterprises often switch between multiple applications to assemble the data they need to complete their work,” said Steve Teixeira, General Manager, Partner Application Experiences at Microsoft. “Sapho on Windows 10 enables enterprise knowledge workers to do more by enabling them to securely complete high-priority tasks and view key insights from their legacy, on-premises, and SaaS applications.”
Sapho’s integration with Windows 10 enables Sapho to send actionable toast notifications to users with the Windows Notification Service. While this type of workflow is natural for mobile users, Sapho translates that workflow into a Windows desktop experience that is optimized for the enterprise. The Windows Action Center then organizes these notifications in a familiar location. In addition, Sapho has added a native Sapho Bot integration to the popular My People functionality in Windows 10, which gives enterprise employees access to all of their work systems from a single, interactive icon located on the taskbar.
“With Windows 10, Microsoft has made a strong push towards empowering employees to reach their potential with human centered workflows that are powerful, intuitive, and familiar,” said Sapho CEO and co-founder Fouad ElNaggar. “Even better, Microsoft has enabled Sapho to integrate notifications and micro apps directly into the operating systems to give users the feel of a native windows experience. This unified experience will better engage employees as they will have instant access to important information and tasks without having to change context – an activity that wastes hours of employee’s time every week – while pulling even more tasks out of their email inboxes.”
The integration between Sapho Employee Experience Portal and Windows 10 is the latest between the two companies, all of which are designed to enable Microsoft customers to get work done quickly from anywhere on any device. Last year, Sapho announced support for Microsoft Teams and Actionable Messages for Microsoft Outlook, on top of its existing support for Microsoft SharePoint, and other intranet and messenger services, and mobile devices.
