PDS Tech Goes Live on Lawson Mobile EmployeeEmployees Now Empowered to Manage Personal HR Data on the Go, 24/7 (January 05, 2012)
ST. PAUL, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/05/12 -- Lawson Software, an Infor affiliate, today announced that PDS Tech, Inc., the fourth-largest staffing firm in the United Sates, is now live on Lawson Mobile Employee. Lawson Mobile Employee enables PDS Tech employees to access personal human resource (HR) data directly from their mobile devices, helping the firm streamline many everyday HR activities and reduce administrative demands. It is the first staffing firm in the United States to offer mobile HR services to its employees.
Lawson Mobile Employee is the mobile extension of Lawson Employee and Manager-Self Service, which Dallas-based PDS Tech had previously launched to provide its more than 3,500 employees with greater visibility and accessibility to personal HR data and direct report data all from a single online access point.
PDS Tech provides temporary employees to more than 200 customers across the United States and fills more than 10,000 staffing requests per year in the areas of Aerospace and Defense engineering, CAD/CAM engineering and IT staffing and project support. Given the firm's operations are dispersed across all 50 states and the Philippines, and many of its employees are field workers, PDS Tech worked with Lawson to rollout Lawson Mobile Employee to a test group of approximately 200 employees.
"PDS Tech has always focused on deploying leading edge technology to make ourselves more efficient and to better serve our customers and employees," said Matthew Haan, CIO for PDS Tech. "Lawson Mobile Employee has helped us achieve this by making it easier for our employees to manage their professional priorities 24/7, no matter where they are. This has helped us save time and cut costs, which helps extend our competitive position in the market. Lawson served as a true partner throughout the entire implementation process and our next step is to extend this application to the rest of our contract workforce."
"HR professionals are constantly challenged to improve efficiency and control costs, while meeting higher employee expectations for quality service," said Heath Brownsworth, director of HCM technology strategy for Lawson. "Lawson designed Mobile Employee to help organizations respond to this demand by providing employees access to critical information whenever and wherever they may need it. Having information at their fingertips creates efficiency, improves productivity and lowers costs, so more time and resources can be re-directed to the strategic priorities of the business."
Lawson mobile applications are provided as no-cost extensions of Lawson applications and are available for the iPhone, iPad, Android, Android Tablets, and Blackberry devices.
