What customers like about Horizon
- Easy access to all employees and guests:
Compared to a consumer chat solution on mobile, Horizon is much more comfortable: I don't have to add the whole company to my contacts!
Because Horizon is integrated with the Digital Workplace, I can easily find all my employees from the directory, but also thanks to auto-completion when I start a chat or a multi-party chat room. With Horizon, I can also contact external people who have guest accounts.
- Continuity of exchanges on desktop and mobile:
With Horizon, I can continue on mobile the conversations I started on my PC and vice versa, whereas before, I had 2 different tools on desktop and on mobile. Horizon allows me not to lose track of conversations when I'm on the move and to optimize my waiting time during the day, especially on public transport.
The mobile version offers all the ease of use of the desktop version such as quote feedback actions, Swipe left to display or close the list of conversations or members of a room!
- A secure solution that we keep under control:
In terms of storage, we are reassured to know that the messages exchanged do not leave the company's network, especially in comparison with the Cloud Act to which other chat solutions from the United States are subject.
This gives us complete control over the storage and archiving of messages and attachments. In addition, Horizon requires the same level of authentication as access to the Digital Workplace, which reinforces our security strategy.
