Mobile HR is a key enabler to mobile working; it empowers employees with the tools to fully interact with the business in a way that fits in with their lifestyle outside office hours.
As part of OpenHR, MobileHR is a user-configurable web interface that allows employees to submit expenses, report and book absences, complete their timesheets, book training courses and update their personal details, wherever they are and whatever mobile device they are using.
Advanced Business Solutions is one of the first HR software providers to offer Mobile HR solutions that can run on any platform together with the mobile devices and airtime included.
MobileHR has two audiences: the whole workforce for whom you’d like to offer easy access to high frequency but low value HR transactions, and also those people who need to fully embrace workflows on demand and other business critical intelligence, such as line managers.
MobileHR supports workflow (automated processes) by enabling employees and line managers to complete events, such as requests for holidays, in the organisation’s HR system from their mobile phone.
MobileHR is a reconfigured and extended workflow module accessible via any platform that suits the user such as Safari (iPad/iPhone) and Mozilla Firefox (Android) or platform native such as that required for Blackberry’s, not just those using Windows and Internet Explorer.
Using MobileHR as part of Advanced’s OpenHR human resource system will allow users the ability to open a landing page that can be easily customised to the company branding of your choice.
Real time information (RTI) can’t work without up-to-date and verified personal data about employees that is then kept up to date as they go on holiday, fall sick etc. Workflow has a vital role to play here, whether it is feeding into an existing self-service application or going one step further and allowing full ‘on the move’ accessibility.
There is a huge cost savings benefit of organisations using Advanced's mobile devices and airtime as they can expect savings in excess of 25% on their current corporate mobile arrangement. From a tax perspective, of course, providing a tablet or Smartphone to an employee in order for them to carry out their duties is classed as office equipment and is not a taxable benefit in kind.
