ClickConnect North America - ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd. (NasdaqGS: CKSW), the leading provider of automated mobile workforce management and optimization solutions for the service industry, today announced unparalleled levels of visibility for the entire service business with the new version of its mobile workforce management solutions.

  • Employee Preferences in the Shift Planning Solution - Quickly and automatically schedules employees based on personal preferences
  • Alert Center in ClickSoftware Mobile Solution - Provides a quick way to track down ongoing updates, as well as jump directly to recently received data

"As service-focused businesses move towards a model of offering best-in-class service as a competitive differentiator, they must use information, including everything from employee availability to emergency situations, proactively in their decision-making processes," said Hannan Carmeli, President and COO of ClickSoftware. "One of the top priorities for our customers is to grow their business while still offering top-notch service, fast response times, and the ability to meet the ever-growing demands of their customers. The actionable information that ClickSoftware provides gives our customers a solid foundation for growth and the ability to smartly manage all facets of their organization."
