Every second counts for the modern day workforce

The 8-hour workday has gone by the wayside. In a cab, at the beach and everywhere in between, today’s workers are never more than a few clicks away from joining a meeting, checking email or collaborating on important projects. The onus is now on companies to keep pace with the mobile workforce.

If workers are getting things done around the clock, how do you track their time effectively? If they’re working everywhere from Brazil to the Ukraine, how do you accurately follow their contributions to a project while keeping an eye on resource usage? The key is to meet them where they already are—on their mobile devices.

Goodbye, 9-5

The modern workforce isn’t shy about getting work done at any hour of the day. 9-5 is more of a rarity than a reality, thanks to technological advances in the mobile realm. An assortment of devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones are making the 24-7 workday a new standard.

Previously easy to monitor, workdays are now an HR nightmare to track. For one, workers have never enjoyed trying to keep track of all their hours. It gets confusing jumping from meeting to meeting and logging on and off all day. No wonder companies face chronic disorganization in their time-tracking processes, not to mention employee deceit, human error and compliance issues that can cost millions.

Mobile Apps for Mobile workers

There are 24 hours in a day, but as employees cross time zones and work remotely and at odd hours, even the 24-hour day becomes a blur. To keep track of employee hours in a mobile, cloud-based workforce, companies must meet employees on the devices they already use.

The modern workforce requires a mobile application to do nearly everything. Tracking time immediately and accurately is no exception. On a mobile app, a contract employee can clock hours right after work happens, on a business trip, from their hotel room or in an airplane. This allows managers to review the hours and push payroll through on schedule. Businesses, in turn, potentially save themselves the millions of dollars that can be lost to compliance fines and revenue leakage. Businesses end up with an accurate payroll and projects that stay on budget, worth its weight in gold—and in mobile devices.

Time is money. Keep track of it.

By making time tracking a simple, mobile process, companies can finally embrace the boon of having a workforce that gets things done everywhere and at all hours of the day. Mobile apps are fast removing the complication from time tracking, freeing up workers and HR alike to better allocate their brainpower.
