Mobile clocking apps and self-service modules are a must for remote workers

clock in out

Remote working has become a widespread occurrence in in today’s workplace, as it provides a range of benefits for employees and employers alike, such as better productivity, better employee efficiency, better employee morale, and engagement.

However, managing remote teams can prove to be a challenge, and companies offering such opportunities must have the right policies in place to ensure that employees maintain a high level of productivity and communication with other team members even while they’re away.

Making performance standards and remote working policies clear from the start, as well as communicating frequently with the team are among the most important issues to tackle for managers and supervisors working with remote workers.

Making remote opportunities work means that a diverse range of teams within the company have to work together, including the supervisors, HR, leadership, and the employees. When properly managed, remote workers can improve organizational productivity as well as their own well-being, but in order to achieve this, employers should also consider deploying the most modern and up-to-date management tools.


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.
