The HLB App for smartphones and tablets, the latest of HLB International’s digital initiatives, is now available for both IOS and Android users. The App allows direct and user-friendly access to details of HLB locations, firms and partners, and keeps users updated on HLB news including technical updates and Twitter feeds.
Of particular relevance to users are the advanced search features, allowing easy access to partners’ expertise and bios as well as firm profiles, and including the use of maps to visualise a member firms’ location. While it is possible to search simply by member firm, country, city, state or partner name, the advanced search option allows the user to search by industry sectors, services or language spoken. Once the search is completed and results identified, member firms and partners can be contacted by email or call directly through the App.
The App is connected to the HLB International website so that changes made to the website are reflected on the App. Once the App is installed, a local version of all data is downloaded, meaning that the App is available and fully functional offline. All changes can be easily downloaded via the "refresh" button located on the App’s homepage.
