    When leaving home or the office, what are the must-have items you would never go without? Wallet? Got

    it. Keys? Yup. Your workforce management application? Umm

    The fact is, todays anytime-anywhere mobile access is changing the way we do business. With the right

    apps, business owners can manage customer relations, access sales performance data, and even create

    presentations from their mobile devices. Human resources technology developers have jumped on the

    mobile bandwagon, and are working hard to bring new solutions for hiring, managing and tracking HR to

    the mobile small- and medium-sized business market.

    Though many of the mobile HR tools currently on the market are focused on acquiring and managing

    talent, a new crop of applications allow business owners to dive into highly valuable data on the go. While

    some apps are available as standalone products on the Android Market or iTunes App Store, many

    software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers have mobile versions of their web applications created specifically

    for use on mobile devices.

    The mobile technology market is growing rapidly, and there are new solutions emerging all the time. But

    based on functionality, ease of use, and downright coolness, there are a few that stand out.

    Acquiring Talent:

    Kenexa 2x Mobile allows business owners to manage their hiring processes on the go. The application

    focuses on key hiring tasks so you can execute the most basic actions needed to move the hiring process

    along. This free app syncs with Kenexas SaaS-based applicant tracking system, but users must have a

    Kenexa license.

    Jobvite is an innovative candidate sourcing solution that has a lot of people talking. This application

    enables your employees to send job invitations (or Jobvites) to members of their networks on LinkedIn,

  • Twitter and Facebook from just about anywhere. To plug in to this tool though, youll need a Jobvite

    subscription.

    Managing Talent:

    Vortexs Mobile Manager Connect is a web-based workforce management tool that allows you to manage

    your operations scheduling needs on the go. You can review, edit and approve time cards, violations and

    time off requests, all of which syncs with existing HR management and payroll systems. The app is free,

    but users need users Vortex Connect license to use it.
