Future Group HR goes mobile
Previously, employees used a web application that was accessed through kiosks or computers at stores.
The company’s overall digital transformation initiatives focus on customers, internal processes and internal stakeholders, and the app is a step towards making touchpoints for internal stakeholders digital, data-driven and intelligent, said Biyani.
Previously, employees used a web application that was accessed through kiosks or computers at stores, as many shop-floor employees did not have access to company emails. The app would save significant man-hours in maintenance and HR needed to manage this system, said Prakash Rao, founding member of Peoplestrong, the app’s developer. He said the app, used by around 700,000 people from organisations such as Aditya Birla Capital, Chola Finance and Cipla, could be used to push video content. Biyani said the app has a location tracker which records real-time movement of staff, to make marking attendance unnecessary, although employees said they still use biometric authentication for attendance.
