By nature, advertising agencies and internal marketing communications teams operate in a lightning-fast environment. So, it’s no surprise that operational data such as timesheets and expenses often don’t get recorded until they’re long overdue. An industry reality that Project Managers, Resource Managers, and Finance teams know all too well.
Without accurate data on hours worked and project expenses incurred, there is no real way they can assess the status of a project budget and the potential overservicing costs that could be imminent. That’s why it’s important that your project management system include a mobile app to give your employees an easier way to quickly log important information−no matter how busy they are or from where they may be working.
The Deltek WorkBook mobile app is a powerful tool for helping your agency team members stay connected, save time, collaborate more effectively, and boost productivity no matter where they’re working. The WorkBook mobile app helps busy agencies in a variety of ways.
- Convenience and mobility: Since the WorkBook mobile app is designed to be accessed on mobile devices, it can be used from virtually anywhere at any time. This allows employees to work on the go and stay connected with their team members and clients while they are away from their desks.
- Time saving: The WorkBook mobile app helps users save time by automating repetitive tasks and streamlining processes. For example, users can stay on top of their tasks, submit timesheets and record expenses by simply using their phone.
- Improved collaboration: The WorkBook mobile app facilitates collaboration by allowing team members to share information, files, and updates with one another in real-time. This can help ensure that everyone is on the same page and working towards a common goal, even when they are not in the same physical location.
- Enhanced productivity: Whether your employees are in the office or working remotely, the WorkBook mobile app can increase productivity by enabling them to access important information quickly and easily. With the ability to monitor their task list and receive reminders and notifications, employees don’t have to worry about missing a deadline and can ensure they stay productive from anywhere.
By leveraging these user experience enhancements in the latest Deltek WorkBook mobile app release, you can improve engagement and support agency-wide adoption across a modern distributed workforce.
iOS Push Notifications
Push notifications are now available on Apple iOS devices. If the WorkBook app is closed and a message is received, a notification from the sender and the first lines of the message are shown as a native notification on their mobile device. When the notification is clicked it will open the WorkBook app and load the corresponding conversation.
These push notifications improve the user experience for iOS users which can help improve user engagement and adoption of the WorkBook system from anywhere.
Whereabouts in Resources
Previously, the Whereabouts icon was not visible when searching Employees in the Resources area of the app. Now, users will be able to see a green Whereabout status icon when an employee is online and available at the current moment in time. This simple enhancement makes it easier for users who need an immediate response to call, send an email, or start a conversation in the app with another user who is available to answer quickly.
