More devices, more channels, more users: It’s clear the world is getting increasingly mobile, with more than 75 percent of Americans owning a smartphone today according to Pew Research — including 92 percent of those in the 18- to 29-year-old demographic.
Leading vendor management systems (VMS) have reflected this growth, empowering managers and workers within a company’s contingent workforce program to increase productivity by managing their tasks anytime, anywhere. PRO Unlimited and our Silicon Valley-based developers have led the charge toward this goal, enabling clients to complete critical tasks across the entire workforce lifecycle directly from mobile devices.
With the new Wand Mobile 3.0 release, PRO once again showcases its commitment to incorporating design principles found in top consumer mobile apps, delivering an even richer user experience unparalleled in the VMS industry. Here are two quick real-world examples of how mobile VMS is improving contingent workforce management for users:
Desktop, laptop, iPad, smartphone – the average employee uses more than three devices daily for work activities. But in many B2B enterprise applications, mobile has been given short shrift – if it’s recognized at all. That’s starting to change as the need to offer seamless movement across devices and provide a consistent, focused user experience that increases adoption and business value is pushing savvy B2B technology providers to shift their approach.
In the case of contingent workforce management, this translates into a need for users to access and utilize all major functions of the VMS from any device (web, mobile, tablet and wearable). As a manager, imagine for example being able to initiate talent requests from your desktop computer, review candidates on your iPad and approve timecards from your smartphone.
The Wand Mobile Approach: Boasting true native apps on the iPhone and Android devices, Apple iPad and even the Apple Watch, Wand Mobile allows users to manage the full contingent workforce lifecycle from anywhere they are. This powers total freedom of mobility and a seamless omni-channel experience.
From searching for prospective talent and reviewing resumes to evaluating project bids and approving timecards, most managers have a lot on their plates. For these overtasked managers, having the ability to easily view their most important tasks from a mobile device – and address them as needed – is increasingly imperative to efficiency.
The Wand Mobile Approach: Wand showcases the key items managers need to take care of directly on their home screen. By bubbling up the new action items required to manage their contingent workforce, Wand Mobile 3.0 helps managers avoid overlooking critical tasks and get more done with fewer swipes and taps. Plus, the new interface’s even more aesthetically pleasing design further improves the app’s usability.
