Today we are proud to announce the release of the Apple Watch Bonzai App called BonzWatch - The Intranet on your wrist. We have been hard at work creating an Apple Watch App out for Bonzai so that people can have an amazing intranet experience on their wrist. BonzWatch leverages the power of two organizations that we greatly admire: Microsoft's Office 365 platform and on the Apple Watch.
So what features did we manage to squeeze into BonzWatch? Here are but a few:
Free Food Alert
What's more important to employees using your Intranet than knowing when there's free food? Whether it's cake for someone's birthday, meeting leftovers, lunch n learn goodies or the remains of a donut in the kitchen, this information is vital to employee satisfaction.
BonzWatch has a built-in food notification feature that any Intranet contributor can use to share the status and location of tasty morsels with others in the organization. Simply open the BonzWatch app, swipe to "Free Food", add details like type, location, quantity and more, and we do the rest. BonzWatch will automatically post an alert on the Intranet that shows both the description and location of the free food.
Additionally, if your Intranet users have BonzWatch installed, they can quickly and easily navigate to the food source via Google Maps.
Haptic Feedback on News Stories
I think that we can all agree that basic stats like views and time on page are a thing of the past. BonzWatch monitors in real time an employee's heart rate, breathing and perspiration level while they're viewing a news article. All this data is sent to the content author so they can see the physical impact their news story had on each reader. Our unique "Heart Rate Dashboard" allows users to quickly and easily see the information that they need.
Now authors know if their news story gets people’s hearts racing, inspires anger, or bores them to tears. This real time feedback improves company Intranet communications beyond belief.
Siri Rating Integration
Thanks to Bonzai Intranet's rich Yammer Integration and social integration, BonzWatch can now be used to rate content that's published on your Intranet. If an employee finds something they like, all they need to do is to shout "I LIKE THIS" to their Apple Watch and BonzWatch shows that they really liked the article.
Conversely, if there is something employees don’t like, they simply shout "THIS SUCKS" or "WHAT A PILE OF CRAP” and Bonzai unlikes the item and send an abusive email to the content creator. We believe that this will bring enterprise social networking on Intranets to an entirely new level.
Real Time Form Feedback
My favorite feature on BonzWatch is the real time form feedback mechanism. Imagine you are about to fill in a paper form given to you by HR. Simply point BonzWatch at the form and in real time we will access your Intranet to check whether you're using the latest version of the form.
If you forget to do this, no problem - BonzWatch will automatically start to emit low electric pulses to your wrist to let you know that the form is out of date. If you continue to fill out the old form, BonzWatch will begin broadcasting an audible message of "THIS GUY IS USING AN OLD FORM. WHY ISNT HE USING THE RIGHT FORM." You can customize the content, language and decibels of the message. All organizations have huge issues ensuring that the latest version of a form is used - BonzWatch is the solution!
Coffee Machine Cam
What causes more lost productivity than waiting in line for the coffee machine at the office? With BonzWatch you can now see in real time the status of the coffee machine so that you know when its possible to get a coffee quickly. If you don’t have time to check your wrist all the time, simply enable the "Tell me when I can get a coffee" feature and BonzWatch will alert you when the coffee machine is free.
BonzWatch integrates with all major coffee machines and we are in talks with various hipster baristas around the world to extend this experience to your local coffee shop as well.
We are so very, very proud to launch BonzWatch. We believe that we have the power to change how Intranets are used one wrist at a time. If you're interested in seeing a demo of BonzWatch and the deep integration with Bonzai Intranet for SharePoint, please contact [email protected] .
