UNISON is one of the UK’s largest trade unions, serving more than 1.3 million members. They represent full-time and part-time staff who provide public services, although they may be employed in both the public and private sectors.
Maxweb have worked with many branches of UNISON throughout the UK.
Our main aim when working with UNISON branches has been to review and improve their whole digital strategy.
Improving the digital strategy of branches has allowed the teams to become much more efficient both in their work and in their time, creating positive results.
Digital solutions we have introduced include Websites, Case Management Systems & Mobile Apps.
Maxweb now provide a multitude of services to over 20 UNISON branched, UK wide including the below;
Website Development – many branches of UNISON either do not have their own website or have one that is old and does not appear in search engines. Maxweb have helped develop branch websites for many branches, examples include www.wirralunison.co.uk, www.unisonseftonhealth.org and www.clhealthunison.co.uk
All of our websites are designed with the UNISON brand in mind and are all fully responsive – meaning that they work well on all devices including desktops, tablets and mobiles.
Case Management System – Maxweb have collaborated with many branches of UNISON and created a Case Management system that is tailored to UNISON. We now have over 12 branches actively using the case management in their day-to-day activities.
The aim of the case management system is to make access to information easier and to organise the management of live member cases. Some of the main features from our UNISON Case Management system are as below;
- Ability to add / edit unlimited cases
- Set action dates and reminders on individual cases for stewards
- Upload documents, emails and comments to each case
- BCC email feature direct to case notes
- PDF download of full case including notes and audit trails
- Daily alerts and reminders of cases that need actions
- Ability to share cases with multiple representatives / stewards (ideal for transferring case details between reps)
- Powerful reports – ability to see case types, case outcomes and representative workloads and compare year upon year data
- Access from any location on any device (with an internet connection)
Our system is cloud based and very efficient. It is also fully GDPR compliant ensuring we take care of members data.
Mobile App – the mobile app can help you get branch news and events out instantly to your members and also make contact between members and stewards more efficient.
It also allows you to send push notifications direct to your members devices, so as you release news they are updated straight away. No more waiting for newsletters to be printed off and distributed.
You can see all the benefits of the app on www.theunisonapp.com.
As a result of some very successful releases for UNSION branches, we have received very positive feedback;
