New app packs to support the next normal
Over the last few weeks and months, we have been working closely with customers and partners as they prepare to operate in the next normal of a complete remote or hybrid digital workforce. One of them being Citrix internally, as we are using our own technology to collaborate, get work done and help employees around the world return to office in a safe manner when allowed by the local environment. In the EU, we have been able to slowly re-open some locations whereas all employees in the US are still working remote.
With this first hand experience, we are able to share some of the best practices we have laid down in Citrix and used internally in close collaboration with employees, legal, security, facilities and others.
We are using Podio apps to organize areas such as:
- Conducting employee readiness surveys
- Identifying and managing the moments that matter most to employees upon returning to the workplace, such as where will they sit or how team and customer meetings will be handled
- Executing safety protocols
- Performing health screenings and self-certifications
- Designing communications strategies
The recommended surveys, communication or self-certification apps can be delivered using Podio, public webforms or from micro-apps within Citrix Workspace for a consistent and secure employee experience across any SaaS or virtual application used in your business.
You can download the new available free Podio app packs from the app market here:

Here is a video to showcase of the use cases delivered in Citrix Workspace powered by Podio and delivered from our partner Brick Bridge Consulting:
Our local partners can help you create a solution to fit your company needs or deliver the apps alongside Citrix Workspace. Let us know here if you would like to be referred to a partner for these new options.

Definitely Back to Office use cases in many cases seems mostly relevant to Enterprises or larger businesses, however the tools here can also be used for smaller businesses in a different context.
For example, the employee NPS survey can be used to survey customer experience - sharing survey link via automated email or link to understand customer satisfaction. This would be helpful for any business big or small. Office news can be used for company news or process updates for both big and small clients.
I am sharing more details to how we use the apps at Citrix here (8000 employees - so yes this is a bigger deployment): https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2020/09/14/ensuring-employee-and-community-safety-with-citrix-workspace/
We are still making updates and improvements to the product however we also want to share and inspire new use-cases when possible.
We have already seen hundreds of downloads of the new apps so definitely see demand on our end.
Thanks for sharing.
