Fast and secure communication for all

Communication in retail

How about real-time communication?

You know how it is: Cumbersome communication that never reaches everyone? Fluctuation in the retail trade is high, and private mobile phone numbers have to be exchanged time and again. Employees can either not contact each other at all or not in real time. Shift plan changes do not always reach all affected persons in time or cannot and must not be accessed on a mobile basis. Communication with other branches is often still done via the intranet, by email or through lengthy correspondence.

Secure communication that reaches everyone quickly ÔÇô thanks to stashcat┬«

stashcat┬« meets the needs of the retail trade for fast, targeted communication and the exchange of data, information and shift plans. stashcat┬« combines the functions of messengers and Cloud applications like WhatsApp and Dropbox. The highly secure messenger can be used according to the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) principle for all employees and on all mobile devices ÔÇô be it your private or business smartphone, and for a 3-month temporary worker or branch manager. stashcat┬« is hosted in Germany or in your data centre.

ThatÔÇÖs why you need stashcat┬« for your retail!

Secure communication that brings you closer together. .

stashcat® enables secure communication via app, web or desktop client and is not bound to the private telephone numbers of employees. Channel communication provides a simple, centralised distribution of information, both industry-wide and across all branches. Urgent messages are exchanged in real time with all parties concerned thanks to push messaging. stashcat® promotes the shared experience and togetherness of employees through group-wide solutions and direct, timely communication with employees.

Simple and efficient for everyone! 

stashcat® can be implemented on demand, is easy to use and is reminiscent of conventional messengers in terms of how it is used, so no training is required for the end user.
