The new online platform allows mobile access for manager and employee self-service HCM tasks in a browser environment...

Epicor, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organisations, has announce it is pushing one of its solutions out to the mobile device, in line with the business demand for access to more than just calendar and email on-the-go. Epicor’s newest HCM now features HCM Mobile Connect and enhanced global frameworks with country specific functionality as an integral part of its ERP suite or an independent end-to-end solution.

“Based on customer demand, we are continuing to deliver integrated features to support HCM needs across organisations globally,” said Diana Van Blaricom, senior product marketing manager, human capital management solutions for Epicor.

“By adding HCM Mobile Connect and enriched global framework functionality, organisations have more flexibility and outlook to manage employee operations than ever before.”

HCM Mobile Connect, which can be used as an on-demand (SaaS) subscription, hosted or on-premise license, provides access to users for daily tasks via iPad, iPhone or Android devices. Surprisingly in an age where there is an app for everything, Epicor has opted for a browser-based mobile solution, saying, “With no application installation required, users can easily login through a device’s web browser to prevent companies from needing to support various versions of device applications.

“Employees can simply bookmark the URL in the web browser to provide direct entry for the login page.”

The new mobile features include:

  • Managers have the ability to respond to time-off requests or balances, approve any workflow routes, manage contacts and take any action that needs approval.
  • Employees can access pertinent insurance data, update their personal information, submit time-off or leave of absence and click-to-call while searching the company directory.
  • Create and update to-do lists on-the-go.
