In this blog post, we are going to talk you through everything you need to know about the Celayix Mobile App! In case you didn’t know Celayix provides a flexible, powerful, and easy-to-use employee scheduling tool. You can easily create schedules in a secure online cloud, allowing you to manage your workforce more effectively, all while eliminating overtime and improving communication between supervisors and employees. A key feature is our Celayix Mobile app.
What is the Celaix Mobile App?
Celayix Mobile is a convenient mobile app for both Android and iOS smartphones. It is designed to be used by your employees and has plenty of useful features! For example, it enables your employees to manage their own schedules, their communications with their managers and serves as a mobile time clock. Other features include:
- Checking schedules
- Clocking in and out of shifts
- Time off requests
- Submit availability
- Bid on shifts
- Receive in-app notifications
- Enter timesheets
- Review time cards
- Confirm shifts
- Add shift tasks
- Add shift incident notes
- Digital Signatures
- And more!
Employees will see their upcoming shifts, any open shifts available for self-scheduling or shift bidding. They will receive reminders for upcoming shifts so that they can ensure they are on time. They can set their availability to have more flexibility over their schedules, and they can use the app to make time-off requests.
Employees can also see a list of shifts already worked, and the hours and type of hours such as overtime, statutory time, and banked time used. The Celayix Mobile App also protects employee privacy and does not track employees without their permission or action.
Let’s take a closer look at how Celayix Mobile can improve operations
Employee shift information
Celayix Mobile has all details related to an employee’s shift in one secure location. Employees can view the dashboard to see all relevant information such as upcoming shifts, start and end times, location of shifts, etc. This location feature is useful as employees can the exact shift location through a map. This way no one can get confused as to where they are working that day or get lost along the way!
Another really efficient feature of Celayix Mobile is that employees can check-in and check out of their shifts through the app. This saves you money on having to purchase expensive hardware to facilitate checking in. If your company is using timesheets this is extremely valuable as all clock-in times and recorded automatically and can be sent directly to your payroll!
You can also set up customized messages for your staff to view with clock-in via Celayix Mobile. This can be things like safety checks or shift tasks to be completed. This ensures your staff are staff and know exactly what is expected of them before their shift ends.
If you haven’t heard of geofencing yet then check out our other blogpost all about its benefits! Celayix mobile app has geofencing enabled which ensures that your employees are actually on-site when they’re supposed to be. A virtual perimeter can be established around the site location so employees can only check in once they are within the set perimeter. This will eliminate false clock-in times, no-shows, and buddy punching.
As mentioned, Celayix Mobile has the capability of in-app notifications. You can change the details of a shift and employees will get notified of this within the app instantly. What’s more, you can send these messages by email and SMS so employees won’t miss any updates.
This also includes instant messaging so you can contact your teams immediately if required. Employees can also contact managers or supervisors in real-time. This keeps all your employee communication in one place and makes it easier to manage for your scheduling staff.
Self-scheduling has been shown to improve employees’ work-life balance and morale by providing flexibility. Celayix mobile app has a built-in shift-scheduling feature to allow your employees to schedule their own shifts and accept shifts that suit their lifestyle. This saves you time too as you spend less time looking for employees to fill open shifts. You can set your own business rules which means only employees with your pre-determined qualifications or requirements can schedule themselves for your shifts. For example, if you need security guards with firearm training, only qualified security guards will see your open shifts.
Shift-bidding is similar to self-scheduling but you post your open shifts and employees will bid on them. You then have the autonomy to decide who gets allocated each shift. It is a first come first serve basis but the great thing is you still have control over who gets awarded each shift. Our clients find these really useful in reducing the amount of time spent on scheduling.
Time off request
Our mission is to make scheduling easy and the capability of time off requests in our mobile app is a testament to this! This feature saves time and money in handling these requests. Employees can simply open their app, request time off for a certain time period and you can either accept or deny it.
Overall, Celayix Mobile App has a huge amount of useful features that help improve your operations. It saves you valuable time and money usually spend on scheduling tasks. This leaves you more time to focus on other areas of the business.
