Timesheets – Data Crunch No More!

Wearables will be the new smart vehicle for accurate time entry. For example, employees will be able to readily use their smart watches to send information such as clock-in and clock-out straight to workforce management and payroll systems system rather than entering the data manually, and after the fact.

Wearables technology can help close the gap between information and action by managing numerous challenges in workforce automation. Already, mobile has revolutionized business and now wearables and intelligent automation are furthering a redesign of interactivity among employees, assets, tools and customers. This includes providing employees in the back office, as well as those immersed in delivering in-field service, with job information, daily schedule information, and service request updates right at the tap on a smart watch.

To be sure, wearable devices are helping boost the convenience of mobility to a hands-free experience for field service professionals. Moreover, the addition of "intelligence" provides a massive multiplier to the impact of these devices on business operations. In this slideshow, Steve Smith, vice president of strategic verticals at ClickSoftware, shares five examples of how business processes can be improved with intelligent analytics through wearable devices.
