Remote workers module can help track ROI for overseas assignments

Remote Workers Module

A fully-featured, versatile remote workers module can help companies monitor their employees’ activity in a reliable and effective manner, even when they’re taking up overseas positions. This is especially important nowadays, as British companies are increasing the number of employees they send to work overseas but are not able to quantify the ROI, according to a recent report by PwC.

The PwC Modern Mobility report queried around 200 executives with international work experience. Findings suggest that, while 90% of companies are planning to increase the number of employees working overseas across the next two years, only around 9% have the means to properly track and evaluate their activity.

Furthermore, only three-in-10 companies know how many staff they have working overseas, while only 6% believe their mobility policies match the needs of their business. Additionally, only 8% are able to accurately measure the cost of their mobility programmes.

Extensive workforce management with the remote workers module

Designed as a mobile extension of the Tensor.NET Time and Attendance System, the Mobile Self Service Module allows 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).
