The Necessity of Mobile Technology in Workforce Management

By Josh Davis

Do you remember the last time you left your cell phone at home? Did you go back home to get it or did you just deal with the feeling that something was missing in your life all day? Our mobile phones are a part of us and sometimes, or oftentimes, it may make sense to use your mobile device instead of your computer.

Today we released our newest video in the Workforce Management Trends Series, which covers the mobile workforce. We have some phenomenal service providers explaining the convergence of mobile technology, workforce management solutions, and the typical employee.

When Google turns around and changes it’s algorithm to favor mobile-friendly websites, you know mobile should be an area of focus for you and your clients.

In fact, SMB Group research indicates:

  • 67 percent of SMBs now view mobile solutions and services as “critical” to their businesses.

and

  • 83 percent have already deployed mobile apps to help improve employee productivity.

When we think about this in the context of workforce management, a few key features companies would typically look for in a mobile solution may include:

  • Viewing schedules
  • Clocking in / out
  • Changing cost centers
  • Seeing who’s in or out of the office
  • Approving timecards for payroll to be processed
  • Ability to view paystubs
  • Requesting / approving time off

These types of features make managing a workforce able to be done anywhere at any time. They provide managers with the insight they need to manage in the moment and react whether they’re in the office or on the go.

Whether you’re providing mobile solutions or not for your clients today, check out what these experts have to say about it, and ensure that mobile is a key part of your strategy moving forward.
