We’re going mobile!

Just in case you thought we had dropped off the face of the earth, we haven’t. We have in fact been busily working away to launch our new Android app, Webroster Mobile, as well as running our final two User Group Road Shows and exhibiting at the NCAS Conference!

Our two autumn road shows were held in Peterborough and Manchester earlier this month. Both were great days and it was extremely beneficial to hear our customers’ opinions about possible developments. After the success of this year’s road shows, we are looking to continue them into 2012 so keep your eyes peeled for more information!

One of the main topics on the agenda at the past two road shows was the all new Webroster Mobile. This is a new app for use with Android smartphones to give field based staff an ‘all in one’ mobile rostering and electronic monitoring tool. The app uses technology from our current mobile electronic monitoring system, PhotoTrac™, combined with an intuitive interface to provide an all encompassing mobile solution.

Through the app, users can check in and out of visits, add additional tasks to bookings, create ‘unplanned’ booking as well as view their roster information and client details from their mobile phone. The app also features a panic button which, when pressed, raises an alert with any pre-defined parties.

Webroster Mobile has been designed to reduce the need for managers to print staff worksheets each week as staff can now view their own rosters and client details on their mobile phone. The electronic monitoring functionality means that there is no need to process timesheets, as real time check in and check out data is automatically sent directly to the database.
