Yes, internet access is required to access the mobile employee self-service ESS portal. Data and messaging rates may apply.

Many hourly employees don’t like their employer's employee self-service app. An employee portal app can be invasive to their personal privacy since it can track their GPS location and give employers access to other on-device capabilities. Not to mention dramatically decreasing their phone’s battery life, among other minor inconveniences.

TeamSense uses familiar technology like text messaging that comes pre-installed on Apple iPhones, Android devices, and all other modern mobile phones. This leads to a more engaging ESS mobile experience to service employees with better HR software.

The TeamSense ESS portal is available to managers wherever they have an internet connection. Everything is made to be as easy as possible, from guiding employees through the onboarding and registration process to sending absence notices to managers.

TeamSense makes managing employee communication simple by plugging hourly employees into the company culture (employees that would otherwise not have access to intranet software or company email).

The employee portal software is only the start of how TeamSense helps you manage your hourly workforce. Other features like attendance on demand provide flexible time tracking options with alerts to notify supervisors if any employees will be out for a partial day or multiple days or if an employee will have a late arrival. Various employees can easily communicate about a missing punch to clock in or request time off.

From there, managers can review schedules individually and message other employees to keep work schedules filled. Then there's the communicate feature that allows administrators to mass message employees and review message history.

With TeamSense, you can customize your ESS software to fit your needs. Think of the employee self-service ESS portal as an employee's home screen. It’s a one-stop-shop for everything employees need to know about the company and have access to.

Here is a quick list of links that often appear in employee self-service software: employee notifications, update personal contact information, update emergency contact information, payroll information, payroll statements, direct deposit information, employee time tracking, record attendance related activities, employee time card edits, benefit balances, benefits information, pay stubs, update HR data, announcements to alert employees, job openings the company is recruiting for, and company news.

This is by no means a complete list. TeamSense is built to be a smart adaptive ESS portal that caters to your organization and makes HR management seamless.

TeamSense is an easy-to-use software built for any company with an hourly workforce, regardless of the industry you serve.
