Vortex Connect today launched Mobile Employee
Connect – software that allows businesses to reduce costs related to
labor and timekeeping, increase scheduling and employee data efficiency
and improve employee retention using smartphone-enabled technology.
Mobile Employee Connect provides a full suite of workforce
management tools on any hand-held device (Blackberry, iPhone, Google
Android, etc.). These tools allow employees to check schedule details,
balance information (for example, number of vacation days remaining),
make time off requests, punch in/out to an offsite location using GPS,
provide their availability for scheduling purposes and trade shifts –
all remotely using their smartphones.
"One of the great benefits of Mobile Employee Connect is that it
completely automates high-frequency and high-value tasks," comments Neil Grunberg, VP of Sales and Marketing, "this reduces error, but more importantly frees up managers to spend more time managing."
Another major benefit of Mobile Employee Connect is the fact that
there is an electronic audit trail for every action taken by an
employee. "This gives management the ability to not only measure
employee performance but also provides important evidence that is
critical in the event of dismissal or the case of a union grievance,"
Mobile Employee Connect is built to securely and seamlessly
integrate into virtually any workforce management solution. "Our
expertise is in building mobile workforce management technology and
integrating into existing workforce management solutions," said
Grunberg, "what this means for clients is quick implementation with
minimal business disruption and the ability to show an ROI early on.
Further, as the organization changes their mobile devices our system
accommodates the change, preventing organizations from being
pigeon-holed into a single device/model."
