How BYOD policies can help cut time tracking costs and improve productivity

As notebook computers, smartphones, and tablets increase in popularity at workplaces around the world, the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon continues to grow. Progressive IT policies around BYOD in recent years ― no doubt a result of the belt-tightening that many organizations had to undergo ― are enabling companies to cut down their spending on hardware, software, and applications to run on them.

Modern companies are embracing technologies like the cloud and mobility to help employees work where and when they want with fewer restrictions. Employees, meanwhile, are getting used to handling a wide variety of work-related matters from their mobile devices anywhere, anytime. For example, mobile access to work-related tasks such as time tracking and/or expense management is increasingly becoming popular thanks to the growth of a dispersed workforce.

With cloud-based workforce management applications such as Replicon Mobile, busy employees can enter timesheets, and even request time off, with just a few taps on their smartphone or tablet. By entering data when it is fresh in employees’ minds, time and expense entries are more accurate and more detailed. A centralized architecture and multiple layers of security enable HR departments and managers to easily keep tabs on their workforce, and approve time off requests and expense reports, all while on the go. Data can be captured and synced in seconds, and submissions approved without delay.

Outdated manual and paper-based time and attendance tracking systems are going the way of the floppy disk. Mobile time tracking and expense management applications that boost the productivity of the modern workforce are here to stay. Companies that recognize this and implement the right BYOD policies and cutting-edge mobile applications can cut down on their IT expenditures while increasing cost savings and maintaining excellent data security.
