Integrations Turn LumApps Platform into a True Employee Hub

Employee experience is a top CEO priority . It’s one of the most important factors impacting the ability to deliver on business objectives. Organizations need to create a supportive, productive work environment with efficient ways for their employees to access the right information, collaborate and share knowledge.

Typically, the average employee navigates between four or more applications to execute a single business process. Most workers toggle between apps 10 times per hour, resulting in 32 days per year of lost workplace productivity .

Consequently, companies want “integration with existing investments in cloud office, collaboration and business applications,” stated Gartner, which is why “Intelligent workspace solutions have connectors to everything that the worker needs including line-of-business apps, enterprise applications such as ERP or CRM, and vertically-focused apps”, according to the IDC.

35+ pre-built integrations with collaborative suites, search engines, ID providers and business apps

And when it comes to integration, it’s not a mere link to a splash page or just an iFrame! LumApps provides 35+ pre-built integrations with mission-critical tools and business apps so that employees have the right tools and information at their fingertips to efficiently perform work, in context.

The LumApps Employee Experience Platform comes with uniform, comprehensive integrations with both Microsoft and Google collaborative suites; search engines powered by Google, Microsoft or Coveo to complement LumApps native search when needed. Identity providers, such as Okta , create a secure and seamless digital working environment.

LumApps also provides pre-built connectors to organizations’ preferred HRM, employee services, communication, and other business apps (Slack, ServiceNow or Zendesk to name a few) to streamline communication and boost employee’s productivity. The ability to capture and share knowledge from and to the tools employees use everyday enables workers to get the job done, in context.
