Australian owned cloud-based rostering, scheduling, and timesheet management platform Deputy has released a new iPad app aimed at helping SME business owners optimise time and attendance management of their employees.
Named Deputy Kiosk for iPad, the app features in-built face detection and geo-location technology to allow business owners to keep track of when and where their employees work. Employees start and end their shifts by taking a quick snap of themselves from the Kiosk, which automatically populates their timesheets. With Deputy Kiosk, business owners can quickly onboard new employees, create and assign tasks, manage leave requests and view full rosters. Employee self-service capabilities enable staff using the platform to advise their employers of their shift unavailability, apply for leave and notify completed tasks.
The iPad app integrates with the Deputy platform and Mobile Apps to provide full functionality to users on the go. Rigorous offline capabilities allow users to collect data for up to 24 hours without an internet connection. This data syncs with the platform as soon as an internet connection is restored.
Ashik Ahmed, Co-Founder and CTO of Deputy, said Deputy Kiosk is an affordable alternative to traditional punch card, finger scan or pin-based time and attendance systems.
“With the new Deputy Kiosk for iPad, whether you’re running a hospital or a hotel, a childcare centre or aged care facility, managing time and attendance just got a whole lot easier.”
Deputy Kiosk for iPad is designed to run on any iPad that supports iOS7. Business owners who already use the Deputy platform can download Deputy Kiosk for iPad free of charge. More information on the app can be found here.
