There’s no denying that we now live in a much more connected world. Nearly half of American adults are smartphone owners, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. With smartphones comes an increased use of mobile apps. Mobile apps make things more easy to use because they’re right at your fingertips. You can do all sorts of things with mobile apps – scheduling appointments at some local clinics to listening to your favorite music, streaming your favorite television shows, or even more important tasks like managing employees and seeing who is clocked in and out when you’re not at the office.
Being able to keep an eye on what’s going on in the office might even give you or your managers better peace of mind. For instance, if you know Johnny is perpetually late, but none of your managers are in the office when he comes in today, you can pop open a labor management app, like the TimeForge mobile app, and see when he clocked in. You don’t even have to be near a computer now to access some of TimeForge’s awesome capabilities.
TimeForge’s app can also help be a part of your mobile employee scheduling solution. After setting up a schedule using the TimeForge website, you can take your phone with you wherever you go and check who’s scheduled, who’s clocked in, who’s clocked out, and see who needs to do shift swaps or has submitted a request. Being able to see these things wherever you are makes your life easier because you aren’t constantly chained to a computer! Get out of the office. Go play that round of golf you’ve been putting off. You’ll still be able to keep an eye on things using your phone with our awesome small business app.
