SmartLinx Launches Innovative Mobile App to Streamline Scheduling and Boost Employee Engagement

SmartLinx understands how today’s workers use mobile devices to connect with the information and people important to them. SmartLinx Go provides employees with a convenient, mobile-friendly way to manage their work life.

According to Gallup, “engaged employees produce better business outcomes than other employees do.” An engaged workforce has higher productivity and employee retention rates. On January 29, 2019, Forbes reported, “Enterprise apps increase worker and overall corporate productivity” in four critical reasons to build enterprise apps.

Created especially for long-term care, senior living, and assisted living providers, SmartLinx Go gives employees real-time access to self-scheduling capabilities and work information. By enabling them to immediately access and respond to scheduling changes, SmartLinx Go empowers employees and increases efficiency throughout the organization.

“We shared the SmartLinx Go app with a few directors, nurses and a scheduler. Everyone really liked viewing schedules and responding to open shifts immediately on their phone,” said Christine Sils, Director of Clinical Programs for Trilogy Health Services. “The app is very intuitive. Our staff learned how to use it before the demo even started. We are looking forward to using SmartLinx Go to streamline PTO requests and deliver real-time scheduling updates for our 100+ facilities.”

SmartLinx is in the business of optimizing human potential through a single unified workforce management suite—from scheduling and time & attendance to payroll and compliance and more.

“Healthcare providers constantly juggle dynamic workforce schedules. We created SmartLinx Go to help our customers efficiently engage employees in a mobile-friendly way that lets them access and respond to new schedules, scheduling changes, and open shifts,” said SmartLinx CEO Marina Aslanyan.

SmartLinx Go mobile app capabilities:

  • On the go support: Employees can use their mobile phone to check their schedules and assigned units, so they always know when and where they’re scheduled to work. They can also request time off, review their punch history, and access pay information.
  • Real-time notifications: Employees receive alerts for scheduling changes, available open shifts, and responses to time off requests in their preferred method: text, email, push notifications that scroll across the top of the screen, or notifications within the mobile app.
  • Self-scheduling: Employees can use their SmartLinx Go app to work with schedulers to fill open shifts and manage their schedule.
  • Streamlined employer scheduling: Schedulers no longer need to post paper schedules to each individual unit or department, as SmartLinx Go automatically pushes schedules and updates to all employees simultaneously. When a shift becomes available, schedulers can use SmartLinx to identify qualified employees who could fill the shift without incurring overtime.

SmartLinx makes work, work better. Used in thousands of leading organizations, the SmartLinx solutions suite helps manage people and processes by harnessing the power of real-time data. Its solutions suite includes talent acquisition and onboarding, human resources, benefits and payroll, time & attendance, scheduling, compliance, and business analytics.
