Mobile tools for mobile workforces
Smartphones, tablets and apps have turned traditional working methods upside down. Because if you appreciate how convenient the new gadgets make your private life, you’ll never want to do without them on the job. Their use in workforce management makes all the difference wherever employees operate in changing locations and mobility and flexibility are the name of the game: are employees able to access up to the minute, relevant data at all times when they are on the go. How can the coordination and management of mobile employees be guaranteed? Are project timings essential for accounting and billing relayed quickly and accurately to headquarters? The challenges of a mobile, flexible working environment can best be mastered with ATOSS Mobile Workforce Management.
Benefit from transparency and efficiency gains
Employees can use the intuitive ATOSS app on their smartphone or tablet to access important information and functions revolving around work — regardless of when and where they are deployed. They can easily clock on, record project times and post them directly to cost centers via their mobile device. Complex, error-prone manual processes are relegated to the past, while billing processes is accelerated. Employees have real-time access to key data from anywhere, such as their account balances, meaning that HR departments receive fewer queries. Absences such as holidays or company trips can be directly and conveniently applied for from home. Supervisors can process the applications immediately via the ATOSS app. They can also keep a sharp eye on key information such as the attendances and absences of their team, and rapidly intervene.
Duty schedules go mobile
Human resource plans and duty schedules can also be viewed at any time from anywhere. Superiors can change plans at short notice on their mobile devices and communicate them in a jiffy. The app features a function for posting comments directly to the mobile duty schedule. Important supplementary information and processing details are readily stored, improving the communication and documentation of changes, as in workplace changes, special programs or sudden deputization by a stand-in. Employees are always fed up to the minute information and are more closely involved in working time processes. They can submit their own preferred working times or swap shifts proactively via the built-in shift exchange platform.
