WorkForce Software Announces Significant Global Expansion and Strategic Acquisition

May 16th, 2013

WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, today unveiled several initiatives comprising its global expansion. The company announces the acquisition of Sydney-based RosterLive, a provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based workforce management solutions to the Australian market; the establishment of new offices in the United Kingdom; the formation of a key strategic alliance in China; and new data centers in the Netherlands and Sydney, Australia.

Today’s announcement follows recent disclosure of WorkForce Software’s record-setting Q1 performance — including a 139% year-over-year (YOY) increase in bookings and 122% YOY increase in SaaS revenues — and represents the next stage of the company’s 2013 growth strategy.

“Since our inception in 1999, we’ve been squarely focused on developing and delivering workforce management solutions that transcend the simplistic ‘punch-in, punch-out’

approach that is all too common in our industry,” stated Kevin Choksi, co-founder and CEO of WorkForce Software. “Our dedication to addressing the complex, constantly changing labor management needs of our clients — solely through configuration, not customization — is ideally suited to today’s business demands and has played a key factor in our ongoing success. Today I’m proud to announce that we’re taking our already impressive global presence to the next level in a large and meaningful way.”


Salespod, Inc., Maker of Agile Field Management Software Introduces Workforce Tracker Add-On for IOS

April 2nd, 2013

Salespod, Inc., the maker of the agile field sales and retail merchandising automation tool Salespod, has announced the availability of Workforce Tracker in the Apple App Store. Workforce Tracker gives companies the ability to manage mobile workers and their workload more effectively by giving management real-time visibility to the location of its field representatives. The application is an optional add-on to Salespod’s iPhone/iPad based mobile cloud solution for managing field representatives and activities. The app monitors the location of the iPhone or iPad from the time the rep officially starts their workday, until they ‘clock-out’ of the Salespod application at the end of the day; sending the GEO-Tagged data to the Salespod console every time the location changes by 200 meters.

Salespod is changing the way that companies manage their mobile workforce by leveraging mobile technologies to greatly streamline how information moves between the field and the back office. Known as a “task oriented swiss army knife for the mobile workforce”, Salespod drives efficiency in the mobile workforce by providing high value functionality on smartphones and tablets. With this latest innovation, Salespod has enabled a higher level of accountability within field organizations, and increased the efficiency with which field reps can be deployed for sales, merchandising, marketing and service activities.

“Workforce Tracker adds an important element to the already powerful features that Salespod delivers. Being able to see exactly where reps are at any point throughout the workday brings a level of accountability and control never before possible when managing remote workers. This functionality gives organizations the insights they need to most effectively deploy and manage their mobile workforces,” says co-founder of Salespod, Marko Linke.

Workfrce Tracker capability was introduced as an embedded feature in Salespod on Android based smartphones and tablets earlier this year, and is available free of charge to organizations using Salespod to manage their field teams.
