INNOVISE TALK PREDICTIONS FOR 2011, IN LIGHT OF THE LAUNCH OF ICONNECT AT THE CLEANING SHOW.


Constantly striving to deliver fresh innovation, leading workforce management software providers Innovise have, once again, pulled it out of the bag. Preparing to unveil the latest addition to the their software portfolio at The Cleaning Show 2011, Innovise are inviting people to come and find out for themselves how applying NFC technology can benefit mobile workforce management processes.


An exciting prospect for the service providing industry, Innovise have developed a faster, more reliable mobile working solution that enables real-time communication based on the latest Near Field Communication (NFC) enabled mobile phones. Combining up to the minute technology, the new iconnect solution will integrate the flexible and secure NFC capabilities with Innovise’s acclaimed servicetrac software solution.


The leading compliance management software solution within the facilities services sector, servicetrac from Innovise is already able to utilise any number of devises to capture data. PDA’s, tablet PC’s, laptops, Guardtour and Cleaning tour devises are all examples of the hardware that is currently successfully integrated with the servicetrac software, so the inclusion of NFC phones was the natural next step. Boasting best in class technology, that has been tried, tested and approved by many of the UK leading service providers, servicetrac was the ideal platform from which to launch the iconnect vision.


Applicable to the security, cleaning, health and any other service providing industry that deploys their workforce across multiple sites, iconnect will allow actual arrival and departure times to be recorded with proof of location as employees simply touch their mobile phones against small Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags places around the site of work. The data collected is then transmitted back to the servicetrac scheduling software, where management can view staff activity as it is happening. Fully integrated with servicetrac, control centre managers can keep teams of staff up to date with scheduling changes, reassign workers to cover shifts where another staff member is absent and organise contingency and investigation when a member of staff fails to clock on to their shift.


Graeme Hughes CEO of Innovise Software, speaks about the ease of use of the new iconnect option:


“Using mobile phone technology to track and monitor workforces is an extremely effective way to utilise a familiar every-day tool into collecting important management information. Everyone has a mobile phone these days, so to be asked to use it as part of your job is something that is will not threaten or throw up barriers to concerned employees who may not have had a lot of technological experience. Very simple to use, quick and self-explanatory, iconnect walks employees through the processes that they need to complete, whilst servicetrac generates that all important


and immediately accessible management information.”


Enabling extreme flexibility for management and employees alike, iconnect involves each worker being assigned with an ID card equipped with an individually assigned RFID tag, which allows them to ‘touch-in’ with their NFC enabled phone to view their schedule. Details of the tasks to be completed and any special instruction, are available at the touch of a button, eliminating the need for paper rosters and timesheets. Graeme concludes:


“Able to facilitate guard tours, janitorial solutions, time and attendance, basic auditing, check calls and much more, NFC technology as part of the iconnect solution turns your mobile phone in to a multi function device, providing you with invaluable information from your workforce wherever they might be based.”
