Have you ever called in sick but really you were heading out to the beach? Told your boss you had a doctor appointment when you were actually at the spa? Those days may soon be coming to an end!
A company named ExtendTime has launched a new mobile application that runs on any phone with GPS capability. The product is called ExtendTime Mobile GPS and the company hopes to tap into home healthcare market and reduce fraud.
The application allows the employee to note the work they are performing and the application automatically includes their location based on the GPS. ExtendTime describes the application as, “The mobile employee can now clock in/out time, review schedules, transfer labor hours, check benefit information, and receive messages from supervisors while the GPS feature captures the coordinates of the employee’s location.”
The idea is that as a boss you will now be able to easily tell where an employee is as they report for work. They are focusing on the healthcare industry as there are increased compliance requirements. The ExtendTime product helps to provide an audit point. Of course workers who want to get around this, or any other tracking system, will figure out a workaround.
