Workforce management systems can help you stay on top of payroll and expenses
Deploying advanced workforce management systems is a vital step in any manager’s strategy to stay on top of their employees’ expenses and payroll, experts in the field have argued.
The first step towards achieving a superior level of control over your employee’s expenses is to create a comprehensive expenses policy, which can save money and improve efficiency.
Financially an expenses policy cuts the cost base of doing business by providing a robust expenses control function. With a limitation placed on the expense the employee will need to change their habits to become in line with policy.
However, in order to enforce an expenses policy, companies must rely on accurate and reliable technological solutions, and this is specifically where Tensor Plc’s extensive expertise can be put to very good use.
Extensive workforce management with the remote workers module
Designed as a mobile extension of the Tensor.NET Workforce Management 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 is 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, the core of this comprehensive Workforce Management System. 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).
