WorkForce Software Announces EmpCenter(R) To Go for the Mobile Labor Force

EmpCenter To Go Changes How Organizations Manage Employees and Productivity Remotely

LIVONIA, MI and LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 05/03/10 -- WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex policies and compliance concerns, announces its mobile workforce management solution EmpCenter To Go during the 2010 International Association for Human Resources Information Management (IHRIM) Conference and Technology Exposition in Las Vegas, May 2 - 5.

EmpCenter To Go enables employees, managers, and HR professionals to perform a diverse array of workforce management activities directly from their Smartphone. Ideally suited for organizations with an employee population comprised of field-based, remote or geographically-dispersed workers, EmpCenter To Go un-tethers individuals from computers or clocking devices without sacrificing real-time workforce management functionality or capabilities.

With features appealing to managers and employees alike, EmpCenter To Go enables individuals to safely and securely:

  • Capture labor and activity information via mobile devices
  • Enter work hours and time off requests, as well as review and approve timesheets
  • Access scheduling details and other employee data

Through the functionality provided by EmpCenter To Go, organizations eliminate the need to treat remote or field-based workers as exceptions to day-to-day workforce management practices. Rather than force employees to maintain and submit paper-based records or rely upon other imprecise data-entry methods, EmpCenter To Go brings data collection to the point of work, thus preserving the accuracy, timeliness and completeness of time and task information. As a result, organizations have a complete set of data for compliance, reporting and informed decision-making.

"Recent advancements in technology, combined with rapidly changing economic conditions, are challenging the definition of a traditional workforce. This shift to an increasingly decentralized employee base often compels organizations to redefine their workforce management practices," said Howard Tarnoff, WorkForce Software's senior vice president. "To this end, EmpCenter To Go brings sophisticated real-time workforce management capabilities to individual workers and their managers... anytime, anywhere."
