Will it look like us?

Absolutely.  It will look and feel like your company, using your colours, logo, images, etc.  And all the content will be specific to your organisation.  

Do they need to download The Induction App™?  

No, The Induction App™ is web-based so it is easily accessible without the need to download anything.  Being web-based, also means you can use it on any device through your email and password.

What sort of content can we have?

Inside the app, you can have text, images, videos, links to documents or webpages, checklists and task-lists, fillable forms, notepad, clickable tabs, drop down accordions, flipping cards, review questions and assessment quizzes.  And there’s more to come…

Can we personalise the content for different people?  

Yes!  If you take the Enhanced or Premium option, you can have multiple groups (eg. locations, teams, etc) and change out the sections, tiles or content chunks to give them specifically and only what relates to them. Let us show you how that works.

Will it streamline new employee paperwork?

Yes, new employees can complete just one online form which then creates and sends the IRD and payroll forms, making it easier for everyone.

Can we edit and maintain inhouse?

Yes absolutely.  The easy to use Content Manager gives you control over your induction process and content, so you can quickly update whenever you need to keeping it alive and accurate.

What if they’re not allowed to use phones at work?  

That’s okay.  Your people can easily access The Induction App™ from any device, like their desktop, laptop or tablet.  Until they start, they can still use it on their phone, or any other device.

Can they use it on their desktop or laptop too?

Absolutely.  Being web-based means you can log in and use it on any device, and it will resize for the device.    

What if we don’t want them using their Gmail to access our information?

Once they start, they can use their work email instead.  But before they start, you will be communicating with them via their personal email, so they’ll most likely start by signing in with their personal email.

Can we integrate with our other systems (eg. ATS, HRIS, LMS)?

Yes, it just depends what’s important to you.  Talk to us about your integration options.    

Which browsers does it work on?

This is an html5 platform so the latest versions of common browsers (including the mobile variants) of Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Edge are fully supported.  Other browsers or less recent browsers may still work, however if you have a specific browser requirement, just let us know and we’ll test for it.

The Induction App™ by Optimism is simply brilliant. It is allowing us to re-induct our entire team after a merger, plus allows us to induct new team players in a consistent manner; without forgetting crucial elements for certain locations like M.P.I requirements. Any changes we have requested have been meet with enthusiasm by the Optimism developers, and it is pleasing to hear about all the planned enhancements for the app. I would recommend it for any company.
