Historically, enterprise frontline and field workers primarily relied on walkie-talkies and portable VoIP phones for communication. However, the increasing ubiquity of mobile devices in the past decade has led to the adoption of tools like Microsoft Teams and Slack among back-office personnel. While these tools cater well to corporate users, they lack the specific functionalities required for frontline needs.

Recognizing this gap, BlueFletch Enterprise Chat emerges as a solution designed to simplify communication on shared workforce devices. Its focus lies on providing asynchronous communication channels, filling the void where walkie-talkies and aforementioned platforms fall short in addressing the unique requirements of frontline employees.
