CyberShift White Paper Helps Companies Maximize Productivity When Deploying Mobile Workforces

Underscores How Mobile Solutions Can Provide Real-Time Access to Workforce and Expense Management Applications

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - CyberShift, a global provider of workforce management and expense management software and services, today announced the release of a new mobile workforce-focused white paper, "Redefining the Workplace: The Future of Strategic Mobile Workforce & Expense Management." The white paper shares the potential benefits and challenges of a growing mobile workforce and offers tips to help companies build a strategy for effective management and increased ROI.

With work/life lines quickly blurring, more employees work from home or on the road using their mobile devices. CyberShift's newest white paper helps companies keep these workers aligned with Human Resources, Payroll, Accounts Payable and Corporate Travel departments and policies, while improving resource accessibility and allowing employees to best use their skills and time.

"Wi-Fi, smartphones and tablets have truly changed the way we live and work on a daily basis. As the mobile workforce continues to grow, it's important that organizations enable their employees with the support and applications they need to use their time most effectively," commented Morné P. Swart, vice president of Product Management at CyberShift. "Mobile workforce and expense management solutions, such as those offered by CyberShift, keep employees connected and productive, at any time, from anywhere."

"Redefining the Workplace" advises how technology solutions further enable mobile workers by providing real-time access to workforce and expense management applications. For example, mobile expense management solutions, such as CyberShift Expense™ Mobile Edition, allow employees and managers to submit, review and approve expenses from a familiar BlackBerry® interface and permit productivity while both on- and off-line. CyberShift Workforce Management 3G™ Mobile Edition brings enterprise workforce applications to mobile workers, allowing them to capture time and review clock data, manage attendance, review employee information and approve times sheets from their mobile devices.

"Organizations need to manage a rapid transition to work environments that support a global, mobile and remote workforce, making the best of their skills and maintaining their identification with the organization, its culture and goals," Swart continued. "With frequent business travelers taking to the skies, rails and roads in increasing numbers, field workers, telecommuters, remote branch office and multi-site workers need mobile applications that support existing business processes, increase productivity, reduce costs and enable them to rapidly respond to business needs that help them remain competitive."

To help companies avoid offsetting mobile workforce benefits, "Redefining the Workplace" includes considerations for company data requirements, organizational readiness of both mobile and traditional in-office employees as well as mobile integration points. "Redefining the Workplace" also provides valuable insight to those personality types best suited for mobile cultures and discusses how management can effectively maintain a presence and keep employees on task while on the road.
