SuiteWorld 2014: NetSuite launches TribeHR Mobile for iOS

Last week, NetSuite held its fourth annual user conference, SuiteWorld. But don’t worry if you missed it – over the course of the week, we have been posting a series of short blogs designed to summarise the key developments announced at the event.
Last Wednesday (14th May), NetSuite announced the availability of NetSuite TribeHR Mobile for iOS. Built for employees and managers, it allows human resources management on the go.

What is TribeHR?

NetSuite TribeHR is the first social human resources management software for use with NetSuite. It enables customers to manage the entire employee lifecycle through a powerful core human resource information system, advanced talent management and social applicant tracking system.
NetSuite TribeHR tracks time off and work history, manages 360-degree feedback along with peer and public recognition while delivering integrations with Linkedin and Facebook to attract and recruit top talent.

TribeHR Mobile capabilities include mobile access to:

  • News feed – keep connected with your team with instant social connectivity, including notifications of co-workers’ recognition, birthdays, service anniversaries, goals accomplished, time off and calendar events.
  • Searchable employee directory – more than just a name and a phone number, users can quickly and easily access employee information including photographs and reporting structure from their device.
  • Time off management – users can request, approve and view time off requests from anywhere at any time. Additionally, a streamlined “call in sick” workflow reduces the frequency of unexplained employee absence.
  • Public recognition – enables employees to give, receive and comment on acknowledgements directly from their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, making the feedback loop faster and more effective.

TribeHR Mobile also leverages the native capabilities of the iPhone, iPad and iPad Touch, allowing users to take pictures and attach them to peer recognition as well as leveraging mobile device GPS data to illustrate an employee’s location.
The app is freely available to existing TribeHR employee, manager and administrator account users from the TribeHR website or the Apple AppStore.
A planned future release is expected to extend NetSuite TribeHR Mobile to Android devices.
