Today’s workforce continues to evolve and to demand among other things, increasing flexibility and mobility. No surprise, considering a recent study from the Pew Research Center:
As of early 2014, 90% of American adults had a cell phone and 58% owned a smartphone—a growth rate of 25% in a single year. One-third of American adults go online mostly using their smartphones rather than a desktop or laptop computer. The same study revealed that 42% of Americans owned a tablet.
Workers expect the convenience of mobile access to applications. But when hiring managers, contingent workers and contingent workforce management (CWM) program owners lack mobile access to key program-related systems and data, the impact is far reaching. For instance:
Today’s enterprises can extend the value of their CWM programs with a vendor management system (VMS) that offers anytime, anywhere access to key VMS functions.
The IQN Compass VMS platform delivers the information and functionality that matters most to hiring managers, program managers and contingent workers via their mobile devices including iPhones, iPads, iPod Touch devices and Android devices. These mobile applications, available in multiple languages, offer the same transactional integrity and system security as IQN Compass.
