Xora And Trakware Add New Software Enhancements Bringing Significant Efficiencies And Greater Control To Mobile Workforce Management For Engineer-To-Order Manufacturers

    This integrated solution enables field operations supervisors to
    dynamically schedule the field installation work force in real time;
    customers are able to be flexible with scheduling while reducing the
    administrative costs of capturing time in the field.

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, April 4 /CNW/ - Xora, a leading provider of
location-based mobile workforce management solutions, and Trakware Systems
Inc., a leading provider of manufacturing and project execution solutions for
complex engineer-to-order environments, today announced an integrated release
that enables advanced supervisor capabilities. Adams Bros. Cabinetry, Inc. is
the first customer to utilize the combined offering.
    Adams has some unique challenges when capturing labor information from
the field. "We required a robust and flexible solution that would allow us to
capture time for any member of our field installation crews on any
supervisor's phone", said Jonathan Adams, Systems Administrator for Adams
Brothers Cabinetry. "This allows us to be flexible with our scheduling of crew
members so that we can exceed our customer's expectations of man power
requirements and service. With TRAKware and Xora, we have the ability to
achieve that and more." Xora's supervisor application allows any individual to
"clock in" from any supervisor's Sprint phone in the field. TRAKware
synchronizes this time with Xora at the press of a button, providing real-time
information on what field installation crews are working on. "Simply put, we
are able to be flexible with our scheduling while reducing our administrative
costs of capturing time in the field."
    Xora mobile workforce management applications enable businesses to track
and manage field staff via GPS-enabled mobile phones. Mobile workers use the
phones to record time sheet and job status information, including when they
begin and end shifts and jobs. Office staff access this information in
real-time from TRAKware. Companies use this information to ensure that workers
are paid accurately, their customers are billed appropriately and their
productivity and profitability are both maximized.
