How the Rise of the Mobile Workforce Can Benefit Your Company
Thanks to smartphones, tablets, and mobile networks, people can get work done from virtually anywhere. While mobility has opened doors for flexible work hours and locations, it can leave you feeling out of control. However, when your employees are spread out across multiple sites, it can benefit your company. And with the right tools in place, you will see how easy it is to gain control of your mobile workforce.
3 Benefits of the Mobile Workforce
Having less employees in the office can give your company the ability to downsize or even eliminate office work space, allowing you to significantly lower overhead costs.
Increase Your Reach
Having people working from many different locations gives your company the ability to get in front of a larger demographic of people, without having to relocate. You can cover multiple job sites and work locations that may have previously been outside of your jurisdiction. This opens up your growth potential as you can now serve larger areas.
Improve Employee Efficiency
There is a common misconception that employees who work at home are less productive than employees who work in the office. However, a study from Brown University reveals that people working outside of the office actually have a 12% increase in efficiency.
Before you fully embrace the mobile workforce trend, it is important to be sure you have an efficient way to monitor your employees’ time and attendance and keep control of your workforce.
EPAY’s flexible time and attendance system is designed to help you manage your distributed, mobile workforce. Time and attendance data is available in real time.
Our system's features are designed to offer control to managers from a distance. They include:
- A Mobile Time Tracking App that allows employees to clock in and out from their smartphones or tablets, while giving managers the ability to track an employee’s location with GPS.
- Real Time Alerts that will notify you when a worker has failed to clock in as scheduled, an employee is about to reach overtime, and much more.
- A Messaging System that gives you the power to send individual or group messages to employees at clock in or out.
