Efficient staff communication with an app

Dear Sir or Madam,

Companies working shift duty or decentralized might encounter problems reaching all employees equally. Not everybody has a personal mailbox and black boards are fixed in one location and have to be specifically sought out by the staff. The app IK-up! on the other hand brings news from the company directly to the staff’s smartphones. Learn more about this app and how it is used by the Malteser Hilfsdienst (a relief organization in the healthcare sector) in Mainz, Germany, in our latest video.

Enjoy watching!

While optical scanners are already used for some of these measurements, others are still performed through manual labor and craft to create molds of the body. 3D scanners are changing this.
