KorbytGO was recently unveiled at a major Internal Communications conference hosted by Microsoft in conjunction with Ragan Communications. Ragan Communications is the leading consulting organization and publisher of information about internal and employee communications in North America.
“Everyone is on mobile,” said Mark Ragan, Chief Executive Officer of Ragan Communications. “As we’ve seen in our research, mobile communications is a critical component to the future of internal communications, and I’m excited to see clients experience how impressive KorbytGO is. We look forward to the continued partnership with RMG through 2018 via conferences, virtual events and with exceptional thought leadership.”
After RMG’s participation at the recent Ragan event at Microsoft, RMG is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at Ragan’s next event (The Role of Communications in Creating Best Places to Work) being held in conjunction with Genentech in San Francisco.
The launch of KorbytGO is anticipated to open significant new opportunities for RMG, as the addressable market includes global companies with 1,000 or more employees. Correspondingly, KorbytGO has the potential to impact tens of millions of employees. According to a recent survey conducted by RMG and Ragan, 83 percent of internal communicators noted they were not currently using mobile, yet 66 percent thought they should focus more on mobile. Ragan’s research indicates a trend in mobile communications as a major player for the future of internal communications.
KorbytGO is the mobile and desktop extension of Korbyt™, RMG’s powerful, next-generation visual enterprise communications platform, that the company launched in October. KorbytGO leverages Korbyt’s seamless content creation and management platform and enables organizations to leverage truly multi-channel communications to desktop, mobile and digital signage. Further, the mobile app is backed by Korbyt’s rich data and analytics capabilities that enables organizations to effectively track employee engagement, and a robust API set that helps enable data integration with virtually any enterprise-level data sources.
“With the launch of KorbytGO, RMG plans to gain momentum in this exciting and significant addressable market, mobile internal communications,” said Robert Michelson, President and Chief Executive Officer of RMG. “KorbytGO empowers impactful multi-channel communications and is designed to truly be a daily touchpoint for all employees. KorbytGO is not just another app — the solution provides an experience that integrates with employees’ day-to-day life and is crafted to become an integral part of daily workflow.”
