WESTBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Freedom Telecare™ today announced, Timesheet Mobile™ cloud computing support for the majority of wireless phones in North America. Timesheet Mobile transforms any mobile phone into an employee work time and location tracker. By interfacing with the award-winning, patented LOC-AID Xchange Gateway™, Timesheet Mobile provides employee work location verification via ordinary cell phones. "Since employees can use their own cell phones, employers don't have to provide iPhone, Blackberry or Android phones or incur the costs of smart phone handsets, software, and data plans," said Freedom Telecare President Bob Drainville. "Using the phones already in the field, the cloud based service is up and running the same day with no hardware or software to deploy."
Workers in construction, maintenance, transportation, security and health care already use Timesheet Mobile for time and location tracking at remote job sites. With the secure, online, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), these companies can:
- View work time and location information for employees and contractors in real time
- Generate timesheets and job reports for payroll and invoicing
- Import timesheets into Quickbooks and third party payroll services
- Get email and text message alerts for worker overtime
- Compare timesheet reports from the current and previous periods
"Our customers save hours each week previously spent gathering and compiling hand written time cards. The savings that companies get from Timesheet Mobile is even greater in the mobile workforce," said Bob Drainville. "Just a few employees showing up a few minutes late, can cost a company hundreds of dollars each month."
Since it is web based, there is no office software to install and accounts are accessible via any web browser. Time records and location data are securely sent to Freedom Telecare servers via their proprietary cloud network. By working with LOC-AID, the world's first and largest mobile location enabler and Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) provider in North America, Freedom Telecare has made Timesheet Mobile the only time and attendance service that captures GPS data via most of the ordinary mobile phones in use today.
"LOC-AID™ is delighted to help Freedom Telecare enable its platform across the largest wireless carrier subscriber networks in the United States," said Rip Gerber, President and Chief Executive Officer of LOC-AID Technologies, Inc. "We've been working with the talented team at Freedom Telecare to make Timesheet Mobile "location ready."
