With the launch of the Time and Expenses mobile application for Reckon One, the company hopes to ease the strain experienced by small businesses by providing a mobile means of tracking employee timesheets and expense claims.
Sam Allert, Reckon managing director for Australia and New Zealand, said the mobile launch will complement the already successful browser-based module, and will greatly assist small businesses as their operations expand further into the mobile space.
“With 70 per cent of Australians currently owning a smartphone, the mobile solution will further increase workplace productivity for small businesses,” Mr Allert added.
Dean Darke, Reckon group product manager, noted that having mobile capability will also allow small businesses to use the timesheets component to help with workplace record-keeping as well as move away from a paper-based model.
“An employer can offer timesheet access to an unlimited amount of employees or contractors to log their billable and unbillable time on the go via their mobile devices,” he said.
Reckon has also released updates for the Reckon One platform, including a customisable bank widget, ABN validation for suppliers within the Core module, and the ability to preview invoice templates and navigate direct to payments made for a particular invoice.
