Many businesses need to collect expense forms and timesheets from their employees and contractors. Yet this mundane task can mean painful paper processing for HR teams and recruitment firms involving hours checking all receipts are included, chasing late submissions and sorting out incorrectly filled in timesheets. The issue of filling in timesheets and expense forms is also one of the main complaints from consultants who claim there’s not enough time to even complete a timesheet!
But, administrative headaches can be resigned to the past thanks to a new ‘out of the box’ app for expenses and timesheets launched by Bluefinity as part of its rapid app development platform, Evoke.
Using Evoke’s ‘out of the box’ app, companies of varying IT skill levels can deploy a time sheet and expenses app to work seamlessly across any mobile device, desktop and operating system quickly and cost effectively. In the past, creating such an app for mobile and desktop devices would have required months of work from a team of highly skilled developers and would have been a very costly project.
Evoke is a rapid app development product that also maintains in its portfolio a series of out-of-the-box and seed apps that can be used as a basis for onward development. Using Evoke‘s rapid app development capabilities developers of all standards can build cost effective fully functioning web, hybrid and native apps for every device rapidly.
Evoke integrates easily with all major SQL and MultiValue databases and can be deployed across multiple devices and platforms, all from a single design project. All the major devices including the iPad, iPhone, Android and Windows phones and tablets, plus Windows, Linux and Apple desktop are supported, and a single user interface design can be dynamically adapted for multiple screen sizes and operating systems, presenting the users of each device with optimum visual displays.
Evoke offers a time sheet and expenses app ready to be deployed to employees and consultants, but it can also be customised to meet specific business requirements.
Most recruitment companies or human resources departments managing groups of staff in multiple locations want a branded business app that maintains the corporate look and feel. Evoke lets companies do this as well as allowing further app customisation to accommodate other specific requirements. It also provides for full integration with a company’s existing database or systems.
The time sheet and expenses app offers an array of benefits and features including:
- Full Candidate, Client and Agency access if required
- Timesheet and expenses submission and approvals
- Email notifications for submitted and approved timesheets
- Ability to use mobile or tablet camera to capture Expense receipts
Malcolm Carroll, Director of BlueFinity said, “Evoke seed apps include a sales pipeline app, simple sales order processing, recruitment placement, online banking and of course the timesheets/expenses forms app which are available to all users. However, in many cases our customers can use these as highly cost-effective apps that they can simply tweak for their business or develop further by adding specific requirements before the apps are deployed.”
BlueFinity has assisted some organisations who wanted the timesheet app but did not require any additional functionality. It added the company’s branding for them and deployed the app securely to integrate with the organisations’ own databases.
