A new app, APPA365, is available for iPhone and Android users to download now. The ad-free app was developed in response to analysis of APPA’s website usage. “Our careful analysis of what our members were looking for online led us to develop this resource,” explains Lander Medlin, APPA’s executive vice president. “We tracked the areas of our website that our members visited most often; given how busy facilities managers are today, we decided to put that information in an easily accessible format for them. Whether they’re somewhere on campus or in a meeting in the office, APPA365 is easy to access — anytime, anywhere.”
A new feature of the app is APPAexch. This feature offers a searchable compendium of peer-to-peer sharing of expertise in the format of a quick response discussion list. “We’re excited that our members will be able to interact with their colleagues throughout APPA,” says Medlin. “We all have experiences we can share, and we have seen how vital this is during a pandemic. A member can post a question, and people can immediately respond via the app — no matter where they are.” Other features include a searchable membership directory, access to Job Express and Facilities Manager, and a Buyers Guide of products and services from APPA’s Business Partner members.
