Mobile Clocking Apps – a Key Asset for Monitoring your Remote Workforce
As the modern workforce becomes increasingly mobile and remote, organizations are looking for the right tools that can be utilized to measure employee performance, assess productivity and maintain data security, industry experts believe.
Employees are monitored in traditional work settings and the need to monitor remotely working employees is just as important, it is argued.
Understanding what employees are doing throughout their work day comes with the territory of telecommuting. It is very important to know the employee’s exact position when clocking in, whether they’re working on a specific project or not, as well as granting them a superior level of freedom in terms of communications with their managers.

TENSOR MOBILE CLOCKING APP DELIVERS SUPERB FUNCTIONALITY
The Mobile Self Service Module (SSM) within the Tensor.NET Time & Attendance offers superb accuracy and a friendly user-interface, complemented by best-in-class workforce productivity-enhancing features.
The Tensor Mobile SSM is a cross-platform app that transforms any iOS, Android or Windows Phone mobile device into a powerful personnel management tool. Available as a free download via the iTunes Store, Google Play or Windows Phone Store, Tensor Mobile SSM allows users to Clock IN and OUT at their respective locations, as well as requesting a period of absence, viewing remaining leave entitlements, recent clocking history and current flexitime balance. The system implements role based security, allowing administrators to easily choose which combination of features employees will have permission to access.
Additionally, mobile users will be able to easily book ON or OFF production jobs, and also receive notifications when their absence, clocking amendment or flexitime adjustment requests are approved or rejected.
Supervisors receive notifications when sub-ordinates create requests and can easily authorise or reject any requested periods of absence, absence cancellations or flexitime adjustments. The management of requests is made easy with the aid of a consolidated calendar displaying the absences of all subordinate employees.
Given its mobile nature, the application also offers a special provision to mitigate the possible connectivity losses, by storing all of the requests on the mobile device and transferring them immediately after a network connection is re-established.
Mobile clockings and job bookings, once submitted, are transferred to the central Tensor.NET application. In addition, the employee’s geographical position is also ascertained from their mobile device’s location and the employee’s movements and clocking records are plotted on a map viewable in Tensor.NET.
