Piilo Software is making its HR Pocket App, dubbed The Piilo HR Pocket App, available for small businesses.
This App allows business owners and managers to manage their employee administration such as time, leave, data, performance management and payroll using only their mobile devices. The application will run on Windows Phone platform and will come in English.
So employers will be managing their employees using their smartphones and if they will allow them to access, the employees are able to use their smart phones to submit time and leave requests while getting access to their electronic payslips.
Users can view balances, notifications and co-worker data as an employee search facility.
“We see the release of the Piilo HR Pocket App as a key step in enabling small businesses to automate at a fraction of the cost through mobility while providing 24×7 access,” says Phil Lötter, CEO of Piilo.
As with cloud computing, mobility doesn’t require any technical or physical infrastructure. The Piilo HR Pocket App is based on Windows Azure to back up data and ensure it’s available through the cloud. The App also allows users to work on and off line with data sync capabilities.
“It makes sense to go mobile for transactional HR activities as mobility enables employees to provide information any place and time with the ability of the manager to receive requests in real-time for approval,” Lötter remarked.
The Piilo HR Pocket App is part of Piilo’s strategy to simplify Human Resources for business. Piilo is currently driving more simplistic and easy to use solutions for SMEs while providing more integrated and comprehensive solutions for enterprises.
Piilo currently also provides HR cloud solutions for small, mid and large enterprises. “We are launching an exciting solution soon called, the Piilo Career Book that will allow enterprises to maximize their current investments in traditional ERP systems in combination with the cloud innovation, ” says Lötter.
