Mobile VMS: Maximize the Efficiency and Productivity of Your HR Tasks

Mobile VMS: Maximize the Efficiency and Productivity of Your HR Tasks
November 6, 2012 at 11:30 - 12:30 PM ET
Peter Parks, Vice President, Product Management(Provade, Inc)
What isn’t mobile these days? In a few short years, handhelds have reshaped our lives. Equipped with smartphones and tablets, today’s professional is able to accomplish tasks remotely that once required a PC. Now, we share critical data, send e-mails, update contact information and view presentations while shuffling between campuses, attending meetings or traveling. According to one survey, businesses experienced productivity gains of up to 36 percent from employees who use personal as well as work-issued mobile devices to perform their job.

While e-mail and calendar applications are most popular, more enterprises are starting to implement line-of-business apps that promote greater efficiency and performance. One example is vendor management system (VMS) technology that helps businesses track contingent labor and all other measures of services spend. The same functions that many HR staff and managers now perform on their computers – such as creating requisitions, comparing and approving candidates, approving timesheets and setting up reports – can now be done from the convenience of a phone or tablet.

In this webinar, we will discuss the importance and benefits of a Mobile VMS, how you can leverage them on a daily basis and how they can make you more efficient and productive. We will also explore the basic questions that should be asked when reviewing Mobile VMS options including:

- Functionality available
- Cross-platform optimization
- User-experience
- Analytics and business intelligence (BI)
- Safety and security of data

This webinar will highlight why mobility is paramount in VMS and how this mobile trend will benefit HR professionals worldwide.
