Actimo - Bridging the gap between managers and mobile-first employees 

 

Actimo is redefining internal communication processes across the retail, trade and industry sectors by offering a responsive digital platform that addresses the challenges of a modern workforce – more often than not, comprised of geographically dispersed non-desk employees.

Our intuitive design makes it easier than ever for employers to connect with their frontline staff through mobile on-boarding and app-based training, delivered straight to their phones.

Actimo’s approach is not simply focussed on getting the message out there, but rather, ensuring staff engage with timely and relevant updates that equip them with the necessary information to do their jobs more effectively. We believe that maintaining this sort of top-to-bottom dialogue is key to enhancing performance outcomes.

 In five short years, Actimo has demonstrated a commitment to technical innovation by developing all-encompassing communication solutions for high-profile clients such as Vodafone, Danske Bank and Bosch. We have a dedicated team of 30+ employees based in Copenhagen, and are rapidly expanding to new markets in London, Barcelona and San Francisc.
