RedPrairie Corp. has created an employee self-service application which allows for better communication with managers. Part of the RedPrairie Workforce Management software, the tool provides employees with the ability to confirm work schedules, check hours worked, submit time-off requests and receive other job-related information through a portal interface. Users can also access work schedules through a wireless application protocol-enabled device, such as a mobile phone or PDA. According to RedPrairie, a user-friendly portal that is integrated with the vendor's workforce management scheduling application can improve the effectiveness of communications between managers and employees. No longer must managers answer potentially disruptive phone calls to confirm an employee's work schedule or worked hours. Efficiencies extend beyond manager-employee communications, RedPrairie said. When a manager approves a request for time off, the employee is notified and the integrated workforce management application will not schedule the employee for that period of time.
