Anytime, anywhere: The employee app from Flip has been networking all ROSSMANN stores in Germany since the beginning of 2021 - contributing to targeted and efficient communication. With the introduction and establishment of the app, the drugstore chain responded to the need for improved communication and organisation between the more than 2,260 branches across Germany: Via the app, they can communicate with each other and share relevant information.
"We have established a fast and intuitive communication channel for all sales outlets that enables us to get in touch with each other regardless of location," says Michael Rybak, Managing Director of Dirk Rossmann GmbH, emphasising the relevance and urgency of modern, digital internal communication. The more than 38,300 employees in Germany can provide feedback and suggestions for improvement directly and easily. In this way, everyday simplifications, product tips or even customer feedback are shared across all store locations. Initially, the motivation and enthusiasm was so great that the system capacity had to be increased in order to be able to process the amount of constructive information. With the introduction of Flip, all sales outlets have not only gained a voice, but also the possibility to quickly exchange information with each other and with the district manager via chat.
To ensure that the use of the Flip App of Dirk Rossmann GmbH brings even more benefits, the following points will be implemented in a timely manner: Tasks API in Q1/Q2 2023; Document management in Q3.
