Salaries and wages are one of the largest costs that every company faces, and are often the most difficult to control. However, changing compensation isn’t always a viable option for those with valuable staff members. One way to lower your labor costs is to introduce smartphones into your business. Since the general public is seemingly glued to them all day anyways, it’s best for your wallet and business to put them to use!
Check out these three smart ways in which smartphones can reduce labor costs!
Automate Non-Critical Tasks
Computer technology has improved enormously in recent years. Not only is it more user-friendly, but it’s inexpensive and can handle more duties. Leverage your employees by using the most up-to-date tools to simplify and speed up their work. Consider downloading the latest tech to serve the occasional and noncritical duties – as long as it does not affect the quality of your product or services.
Accurate Time Card
A cloud-based app that provides time and labor management over the Internet is able to accurately clock your employees checking in and out of in-the-field duties. This is perfect, not to mention cost-effective, for companies with a spread out workforce, individual operators, or small crews who move from location to location.
With an app that allows effective and efficient communication from the back office to the in-the-field workers, response time is halved, and any information is obtained as soon as it’s needed. Your off-site employees no longer have to wait around for the back office to get their message, allowing your communications to improve and labor time to become more efficient.
If you’re looking for one application that does all of this, look no further! To get started on your management solution, be sure to contact Landport Systems in Walnut Creek, California.
