Platform for Mobile Forms, Employee Time Tracking, Asset Tracking, Service Scheduling and Dispatch with BI Selected

By: Shannon Corgan, Director of Marketing

We are thrilled to announce that WorkMax by AboutTime Technologies received the 2015 award for the Most Innovative Product by Hanley Wood, a premier information, media, event, and strategic marketing services company. WorkMax is a new cloud-based resource management platform that we’ve had in development the last couple of years. We’ve received numerous innovation awards in the past; however, this is a first for the company’s new web-based resource management platform, WorkMax. The selection process was more than a popularity contest. The winners were selected based on the innovation they bring to the industry by a panel of industry experts, members of the industry from the World of Concrete trade show, as well as editors from leading Hanley Wood publications. 

You may wonder, what is so innovative about WorkMax and why did so many concrete contractors that attended the World of Concrete vote for WorkMax as an innovative solution? Here are some of the key innovative features that make WorkMax a winner and why World of Concrete attendees picked WorkMax: 

Flexibility -
 WorkMax is so flexible, it can be personalized to any size company, in any industry. It also gives businesses the ability to select WorkMax modules individually by module or the complete suite. Businesses buy only what they need based on the needs of their business. 

All in One Place - WorkMax is also the first resource management solution on one platform with visual business intelligence, service scheduling and dispatch alongside timekeeping, asset management, and electronic forms. Across all five WorkMax Modules, there is only one app, one login, one vendor, one database, and one system to learn. 

Simplicity - WorkMax simplifies resource management. Most businesses, whether they are small or enterprise organizations, are challenged with pulling together the information from many different software tools to connect labor, assets, forms, service scheduling and dispatch with business intelligence tools to know what’s going on in their business. We made it simple by taking care of that part for you. We put all the best in class resource management tools into one integrated platform that’s easy to use and can be implemented rapidly.

Real-time resource productivity, anytime, anywhere, on any device – Since labor is the biggest expense for all businesses and closely followed by assets, you need to know what is going on right now in your business. WorkMax lets you see your resource productivity and utilization as it happens in real-time for labor, assets, forms, service scheduling and dispatch on any device, anytime, anywhere. It doesn’t matter if your workforce is mobile, remote or in your local office, WorkMax gives you the answers you need in real-time. 

“We have never been more excited than we are with the upcoming launch of the WorkMax platform,” said Ryan Remkes, AboutTime Technologies CEO, “years of experience and customer feedback has led us through a multi-year effort to design, build and deliver the ultimate suite of flexible web-based resource management solutions. This most recent WorkMax innovation award is a clear market recognition and acknowledgement of this.”

The WorkMax COMPLETE SUITE includes all five modules businesses can purchase for:

FORMS: Paper forms slow your team down. WorkMax FORMS will help you go completely paperless and make electronic forms easy and efficient for your entire staff. The paper forms you use today can easily be built and deployed out to mobile devices including surveys, expense reports, safety, compliance, work orders and any other form your business needs. 

TIME: Your people are your most valuable resource. The WorkMax time and attendance solution is built for your entire workforce including local staff, mobile workers and remote employees. Connect your teams, capture accurate time data and manage workforce labor from anywhere, on any device, at any time.

ASSETS: Where are your company assets, tools and equipment? Who has what? Whether your assets are mobile, local or remote, our asset module helps your team keep track of usage, location and assignment, while eliminating loss.

SERVICE SCHEDULING/DISPATCH: Service your customers better by having the right people in the right place, at the right time. Help your team and your customers stay in sync as GPS location stamps and real-time data helps dispatch and schedule your workers efficiently.

INSIGHT: You simply can't be everywhere all of the time, so you need real-time instant visibility. Insight gives 360-degree visibility across your teams and resources as to what is happening right now. Make better decisions quicker.

The WorkMax platform was demonstrated at the World of Concrete and it will be available Q1 2016 with WorkMax FORMS as the first module of the platform scheduled for full market release in January 2016.
