Learn why embracing mobile technology is one of the easiest ways to optimize your workforce and your business.
Humana are a private healthcare company operating throughout the Nordics with more than 9,000 employees across 2,000 different workplaces.
Humana use Quinyx as their workforce management tool and their customer and assistant manager, Mia Carlström, says using Quinyx is like having your office in your pocket.
For Carlström, being able to see what’s happening in the business at any given time through a mobile device has brought huge benefits. These benefits are echoed across the workforce who use the system wherever and whenever.
In 2015 there were approximately 200 million more mobile users than there were traditional desktop users, with mobile device usage likely to exceed growth of 500% in just 10 years (Source: Morgan Stanley Research). As such there is an increasing need to be able to control all aspects of our lives from our phones; whether it’s our schedules, our flights, our reservations or even our businesses.
And mobile technology has a huge impact when it comes to workforce management. The benefits of mobile workforce management include:
- An overview of your business at anytime, from anywhere.
- Give your managers more ‘customer-facing’ time.
- The ability to make good decisions quickly.
- A simple way to communicate with staff.
- Integrated task management.
- An easy way for your staff to see when they are working, change when they are working, submit leave requests and ask for more shifts.
This was put into great practice earlier this year by one of our clients in the UK. Visitor Operations Manager at the Mary Rose Museum, James Rodliff, says that using the Quinyx app significantly helped him manage the museum’s workforce.
“Being able to use the mobile manager function in the Quinyx app has been a huge help,” he says. “Earlier this we had a pop-up museum touring the south of England and a temporary exhibition at the museum itself our scheduling has been very different and using Quinyx has been invaluable."
“When I was away from the office with the pop-up museum I was still been able to use Quinyx to manage our staff. I was granting leave requests and shift allocations from the inside of a tent in a Tudor castle in Gloucestershire!”
This saved time, alongside making the workforce more productive and efficient. Embracing mobile technology is one of the easiest ways to optimize your workforce and your business.
And it’s great for your staff too. Booking shifts, swapping shifts, communicating with colleagues, applying for leave, claiming open shifts and more can all happen within the app environment, allowing for a seamless experience for the end-user and a better performing business.
