Vodafone Business Services (VBS), the enterprise arm of Vodafone India has introduced a cloud based application suite that empowers enterprises to get the most out of their field force. Named Mobile Workforce Essentials, the solution is a part of Vodafone's CloudStore portfolio that includes Collaboration Productivity and CRM among other cloud-based offerings.
It will help enterprises to manage their mobile workforce better to increase productivity, gain efficiency, improve accountability and reduce costs. Employees can remotely manage their attendance from their mobile app as well as receive and dispatch work orders while on the field. Employers, on the other hand, can monitor workforce routes through the GPS Tracking feature.
Vodafone has partnered with field-force management application vendor ActSoft to launch the Mobile Workforce Essentials service in India.
Mobile Workforce Essentials is available on the Vodafone CloudStore, an online automated marketplace that features the full range of Vodafone's cloud-based business applications. With the Vodafone CloudStore, customers can buy online, opt for payment options, as well as manage their users and licenses online. Vodafone also extends a dedicated Cloud Support infrastructure that helps with onboarding and in-life support.
Anil Philip, Senior Vice President, Vodafone Business Services adds "In today's digital world, organizations need to rapidly evolve and manage the dual challenges of cost optimization with workforce productivity. Vodafone Mobile Workforce Essentials is a 360-degree application suite with which enterprises can gain a competitive edge by better mobilizing and empowering their employees."
