The plazz AG Employee App
The road to the plazz AG employee app
As a provider of No Code Software as a Service solutions for the event market, plazz AG is an established partner for over 250 customers, including 14 DAX-listed companies. With our solution, we have already successfully accompanied thousands of events nationally and internationally and are considered a specialist when it comes to event technology.
Due to the abundance of features of our event app solution, the realization of other use cases emerged, such as an employee app. This would simplify the flow of information and promote communication at the same time.
The no-code format also eliminates the need for programming expertise and ensures scalability for small and large companies.
Development of the plazz AG employee app
As a team, we stand completely behind the products we develop & sell. That’s why we launched our event and community platform “Polario” as an employee app.
With the “My plazz” employee app, we promote our internal communication and invite interaction. Currently, we are focusing on providing information within our company.

In the plazz AG employee app, for example, our intranet, which previously used SharePoint, is displayed. The staff can find information about our mission/vision, a list and details about our benefits, the regulation of working hours and many other topics.
The calendar provides an overview of team events and other dates. Currently, you can find our planned hiking day or the on-site services of the customer support team.
The app menu of the plazz AG employee app simplifies navigation considerably. There are also sub-items for documents. For example, we have created a page with background pictures for video calls in our plazz design which can be downloaded.
Our team is also represented in the employee app. Thus, via the list of persons, the colleagues are listed with information about the department, their tasks and contact details.

The newsroom could be described as the heart of the plazz AG employee app. News about the company is shared here. There you can find updates from the departments, such as pages and whitepapers created by Marketing, or on-site reports from Customer Support, but also information about people who are new to the team. Via comments and likes, a direct exchange takes place immediately in their respective article.
The direct exchange via our employee app is also promoted via the chat feature. You can either write to individual persons or add several to a group chat. Pictures, documents and other content can be sent in the chat.
Another possibility for sharing information is the social feed. You can think of it as an interactive and digital bulletin board. Posts created within a social feed of our employee app can also be commented and liked. For example, we have a channel with updates from the team on events or a “food” channel to inform about snacks brought to the office.
A particularly important feature for marketing is notifications. As soon as a new social media post is published, we inform the team via a push notification. We briefly summarize the content and provide links to the respective platforms to increase engagement.

The interactions with the plazz AG employee app are constantly being expanded and already offer our team many useful functions. For example, the purchase order list can be found within the app. Materials or other items that are needed for daily work can be entered there.
We have also added forms to our employee app. Particularly important here is the feedback form for the app itself, in which we collect and evaluate thoughts, criticism and other comments. But departments like marketing also collect feedback here. For example, there is always a link to the form in news articles of marketing updates so that feedback can be provided quickly and easily.
Forms are not only used for feedback, of course. For example, we recently published a news article about participating in the Thüringer Unternehmenslauf. Anyone who was interested in running for us could sign up for it in the linked form with their name and T-shirt size.
Another very important and regular component of the plazz AG employee app is our weekly report. Initially accessible directly via SharePoint, it is now directly available in the app. Here, the team enters the highlights of the week and informs what to expect in the coming week. This way, each person stays up to date and can plan their week accordingly.
