Remote workers’ management systems are a must in the digital age
Remote workers’ management systems are becoming increasingly important, especially within the digital marketing field, where over 80% of agencies agree that using remote employees improves productivity.
A recent study published by HiveDesk has also revealed that nearly 1 in 5 agencies employ only remote workers, with most agencies starting to hire remote workers to overcome shortage of talent in their local market.
Other major benefits include productivity gains and savings on office related costs. For small and midsized agencies, office related costs can be substantial. By hiring remote employees, companies are able to save on those costs. Savings are more pronounced in metro regions with high real estate costs.
Remote workers’ management module – a key feature in Tensor.NET
Designed as a mobile extension of the Tensor.NET Time and Attendance System, the Mobile Self Service Moduleallows iPhone owners to Clock IN and OUT at their respective workplaces, as well as requesting a period of absence, viewing remaining leave entitlements, recent clocking history and current flexitime balance.
Additionally, mobile users will be able to easily book ON or OFF production jobs, and also receive notifications when requests are approved or rejected.
On the other hand, supervisors will be able to easily subordinate work colleague’s time sheets and approve or deny their absence requests. The management of requests is made easy with the aid of a consolidated calendar showing the absence of all subordinate employees.
Another very interesting detail worth mentioning here is the fact that the remote workers module also supports role based security, meaning that you can easily choose which combination of features employees will have access to. Disabled features, such as the ability to view flexitime, will simply not appear at all.
Given its mobile nature, the remote workers module application also offers a special provision to mitigate the possible connectivity losses, by storing all of the requests on the iPhone 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. Additionally, the employee’s geographical position is also ascertained from their iPhone’s location and the employee’s movements recorded in this manner are plotted on a map viewable in the Tensor.NET (which is a particularly useful features for field personnel).
