Mobile workforce management apps are the key to achieving high-performing HR functions within organizations


clock in out

Investing in human capital management technologies can help organizations achieve high-performing HR functions, which, in their turn, helps them attain better business outcomes, such as delivering exceptional customer value (94%), reacting proactively to disruptive change (83%), and driving innovation (89%), recent research has been able to reveal.

According to Mercer’s 2017 “HR Transformation Study – How HR Needs to Change,” despite organizations with high-performing HR functions using technology much more than others, it is still limited. While 69% have employee self-service in place, just 36% have manager self-service and only 27% have mobile talent applications.

“Clearly, there is significant opportunity for the HR function to grow its digital presence,” said Karen Piercy, Partner in Mercer’s HR Transformation business. “As HR functions adopt technology and advance their skills in data analytics, they are strengthening strategic decision-making, enhancing partnerships with business leaders and other functions, and providing a more digital and consumer-oriented manager and employee experience.”

TENSOR MOBILE SELF SERVICE MODULE (SSM) – MOBILE CLOCKING WITH ADVANCED EMPLOYEE MANAGEMENT FEATURES

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.
