Unicorn HRO, an industry leader in benefits, payroll and HR solutions, today launched a new mobile application to optimize Human Resources (HR) and Payroll processes and enable managers and employees to execute HR-based requests on-the-go, directly from their mobile device. The app will increase employee and manager productivity and further empower the always-on workforce with real-time mobile capabilities for performing a wide range of HR processes.
Access to mobile technology is crucial to today’s workforce. According to Nucleus Research, mobile technology and cloud-based applications enabled significant returns and increased productivity in addition to minimizing the time required for HR-related interactions.
“Today's work environment is no longer restricted to desks in an office building,” said Edward Gettings, Senior Vice President of Operations, Unicorn HRO. “The workforce today is ‘always on’ and ‘always connected’ both professionally and personally, with devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to tablets and e-readers. HR functions are critical to many businesses and delays in approval of HR-based requests can result in lost productivity, making it necessary to enable HR professionals with on-demand access from their mobile devices.”
With Unicorn HRO’s mobile app, managers will be able to search and view employee profiles, initiate and act on HR-based processes and workflows, collaborate on decisions and events, and access critical data – from anywhere with their mobile device.
“With the launch of our mobile app, Unicorn HRO further strengthens its commitment to serving our customers and the industry with leading edge technology and solutions for managing the entire human capital lifecycle,” said Tim Diassi, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Unicorn HRO. “We are excited to be offering a mobile app to our customers, who can now provide their mobile workforce with access to the tools and information they need to be more productive, from anywhere.”
