A new HR desktop and mobile app solution from transport management software specialists Mandata will be previewed at the CV Show. Providing improved visibility and control of a driver workforce and costs, the solution is set to make life simpler for road hauliers and logistics operators.
Just one of the latest integrated innovations being previewed at this year’s CV Show, that will be available later this year.
Using the HR app which will be on general release later this year, drivers will be able to update their shift hours, submit leave requests, report sickness and absence, and upload expenses and receipts – enabling employers to keep better track of driver availability and costs far easier and more effectively.
Approved holiday requests feed directly into the Traffic Management Driver Calendar within Mandata TMS and TMS Go! so that Traffic Planners can quickly identify who is available to work a shift.
About the HR app
The app consists of three core features – timesheets, holiday and leave, and expenses – which can be activated optionally. The service can also be quickly accessed by authorised HR personnel and utilised through dedicated management screens, offering dashboard-style reporting and centralised management.
Timesheet updates from a driver’s mobile to your back-office
Within the timesheet function, a selection of time recording options are available to meet either individual driver needs or corporate level requirements: shift totals only; per shift with activities; per load, or per job.
Enhanced coordination and control of drivers’ availability is also a key benefit through a selection of options that track and record days off, requests for leave as well as unused holiday allowance. The system also records the number of days a driver has taken as sick leave in a given period.
Expenses made simple
A ‘claim expenses’ section; records the date, type, amount and payment method for each claim. The status of expense claims is also shown in a colour-coded dashboard-format, clearly broken down for easier understanding. A receipt button also opens the smartphone camera to take a photo of the receipt for added functionality.
The app is one of the newest integrated innovations to be developed by Mandata. Kevin Marshall, Development Director explains:
“We’re helping operators by making life simpler for them and their drivers. Providing everything their drivers need on one mobile device. The app is one of a series of apps connecting driver activities to the admin, traffic and HR office. Key information recorded in one paperless system ensures everyone is kept informed, leading to far greater understanding and visibility and smoother processes.”
