DENVER, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IQNavigator, the leading provider of non-employee workforce management solutions to Global 2000 companies, today announced the launch of IQN for iPad. This new mobile solution enables IQNavigator customers to extend the value of their investment in IQNavigator's best-in-class technology by providing anytime, anywhere access to key vendor management system (VMS) functions. IQN for iPad enables hiring managers to maximize their productivity and manage their contingent workforce on the go.
"IQNavigator is proud to be leading the market with a mobile version of our best-in-class VMS solution," said Joe Juliano, president and CEO of IQNavigator. "We listened to our customers' requirements, leveraged the latest mobile technologies and designed IQN for iPad to deliver the best of our VMS solution with streamlined functionality optimized for the tablet."
With contingent workers operating on inconsistent schedules and based in a variety of time zones, hiring managers face round-the-clock pressures to identify the right talent for the right opportunity at the right time. IQNavigator designed IQN for iPad to drive new levels of efficiency for hiring managers by delivering the information and functionality that matters most, even on the go.
Proven benefits include:
- Better tracking and management of contingent workers with capabilities to view and approve requisitions and assignments, approve or reject expenditures and complete assignment evaluations.
- Quicker assessments of new talent and the ability to compare resumes in a streamlined "see and swipe" fashion.
- Improved capabilities to react swiftly to workforce requirements changes with alerts and dashboards prompting actions yielding smarter, faster decision making.
- Enhanced information sharing and collaboration with other users by adding comments and notes to requisitions.
"These days, a mobile strategy is a requirement, not an option," said Sherri Hammons, chief technology officer of IQNavigator. "Our customers include many of the most technologically-advanced Global 2000 firms in the world so providing key functionality on a tablet was a logical next step. As the workforce continues to evolve and demand flexibility, the tools used to manage these workers (contingent, temporary, freelancers) must also provide maximum flexibility and responsiveness."
IQN for iPad is now available for existing U.S. IQN customers at no additional charge, and can be downloaded here at the iTunes App Store and by searching for IQNavigator. Highly intuitive for existing IQNavigator customers and adhering to industry-leading, iOS-specific user experience guidelines, IQN for iPad requires no training to master. Interested IQNavigator customers should contact their IQNavigator account representative to establish mobile access. The solution is currently compatible with iPad iOS 6.0 or later, and IQN developers will continue to look for opportunities to expand its mobile VMS offering to iPhone, Android and other mobile devices to meet market demands.
