Mobile Workforce

Easily manage a mobile workforce where employees can track jobs on their mobile device

Mobile workforce apps are perfect when your employees are out of the office but still need to track and update jobs and tasks.

This mobile workforce template is a simple task management app. A supervisor is responsible for assigning jobs and customers to employees.

Employees log in and view any jobs that have been assigned to them. They then update and complete those jobs using a mobile device in the field.

There are many options for expanding the functionality of a mobile workforce app, such as building it into a more robust employee management/HR system that also tracks employee reviews and time off requests.
