Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 22, 2008
Legiant®, a leading provider of workforce management solutions, announced today that it has partnered with Actsoft, Inc® to integrate real-time GPS data with Legiant’s mobile time and attendance solutions. The agreement enables Legiant customers to enhance off-site employee time tracking by seamlessly integrating Actsoft’s Comet Tracker™ mobile management software with Legiant.
Actsoft’s Comet Tracker™ offers remote workforce management capabilities that enable management to determine who is currently on the job at specific worksites and to view maps that pinpoint workers’ exact locations. Combined with Legiant Timecard management can receive e-mail alerts for absent or late arrivals, track and report all labor data, and project payroll costs with greater accuracy. Comet Tracker™ offers mobile employees an easy way to clock in and out of work from their cell phones. It automatically captures the employee’s ID number, the time and date, and the address or location of the employee when the call is made.
Said Rod Crane, CIO of Legiant, “Mobility and the technology that goes with it can greatly improve workforce productivity, especially in industries where workers must be offsite, on the road, or out of state. But managing a mobile workforce presents new challenges – companies must have the tools they need to make mobility efficient as well. By integrating our mobile time and attendance solution with Actsoft’s GPS data tracking, we’ve given department managers, HR professionals and the CFO real-time visibility into the costs, efficiencies and reliability of their mobile workforce.”
Legiant has contracted with Actsoft, Inc the Tampa, Fla.-based developer of GPS and mobile resource management solutions, in a co-marketing and customer referral program, broadening the solutions portfolios of both companies. Actsoft, Inc provides GPS monitoring solutions to a wide range of vertical markets and technology companies. The partnership with Legiant will allow each company to offer customers one of the industry’s first and most comprehensive GPS-supported, mobile time and attendance tracking and reporting products on the market. Actsoft, Inc enables Legiant customers to wirelessly track worker location, record worker hours, store task information, and dispatch jobs to remote workers.
Mr. Tom Mitchell, CEO and founder of Actsoft said, “By integrating Comet Tracker’s wireless, real-time GPS data with its leading time and attendance solution, Legiant has added a whole new level of information and reporting to its mobile workforce management system. This gives financial and department managers a way to maximize efficiency and increase worker productivity throughout their organizations and overcome one of the challenges of an ever-increasing mobile workforce.”
The Legiant Timecard™ solution enables companies to dramatically reduce payroll preparation time and eliminate costly payroll errors while delivering vital business intelligence to both HR executives and financial managers. The system enhances the flow of critical workforce information and uses a single screen to provide real-time attendance data, timecard approval status, electronic in-out board, messages, and leave-request approval status.
