Manager on the Go


What it is: Managers can’t be in two places at once. The Manager on-the-Go tool means they no longer need to be at their desk to complete approvals or perform other essential tasks involving the employees they supervise. Accessible through the Paycom mobile app, Manager on-the-Go allows for anywhere, anytime completion.

Why we like it: Much of the innovation in HR technology over the last several years has focused on the individual user, i.e., the average employee. And that made sense since, for decades, most HR and administrative technologies were designed for the back-office HR and payroll departments and not for the employees. But one key employee role has been a little bit underserved in this shift–the frontline manager. Somewhere between the back-office user and the average employee user, the manager needs functional, powerful, easy-to-use, efficient HR tools. Paycom’s Manager on the Go strikes that careful balance, giving managers fast, simple and complete access to all of their key functions: time-off approvals, employee schedules, expenses and much more, making the manager’s administrative tasks easy to complete, and allowing them to keep the focus on their teams.

As always, we encourage you to perform your own due diligence before making any investments.
