App Enables Users to Get Work, Complete Work and Get Paid Faster While in the Field
MINNEAPOLIS – Aug. 24, 2015 – Field Nation, the contingent work hub for business, today launched its new iOS application. The Field Nation app, which allows businesses and independent contractors to find and manage work from their iPhone, is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
The new Field Nation app allows contractors to keep track of required tasks while performing jobs on-site. Users no longer have to log into a computer to update the status of their work or search for new assignments. In addition, businesses get real-time visibility and faster responses to project communications and published work opportunities.
“At Field Nation we have made a conscious effort to completely power the mobile workforce and our users,” said Mynul Khan, CEO. “With 70 percent of Field Nation users on Andriod systems and 30 percent on iOS, we have now equipped everyone with the power of a mobile app so they can be more effective while out in the field.”
In addition to real-time communication tied to work orders, the Field Nation app provides users with several features currently unavailable with other marketplace applications. Field Nation iOS app features include:
- Instant access to work schedules
- Location information for new jobs offered through the Field Nation work marketplace
- Flexible counter-offer opportunities to negotiate schedules and payment terms
- Integration with cloud storage platforms like Dropbox, One Drive and Box
- Convenient digital signature collection for immediate post-task completion
- Transparent and streamlined project management with WorkSmart Workflow™
The Field Nation app for iOS users empowers on-site work management so businesses and contractors can get their work done anytime and anywhere, whether they are in the field or on-the-go.
“Our app allows buyers real-time visibility into each project, quick updates on issues and concerns faced by providers on site and immediate completion notifications, all of which ensure better fulfillment rates and improved accuracy,” said Travis Emslander, Chief Technical Officer at Field Nation. “Service providers will find it easier to upload deliverables, access opportunities while in the field, and view tasks, work requirements and deliverables without having to log in to a computer.”
The Field Nation mobile apps for Android and iOS operate the same as the current mobile-optimized website, and users can continue to use both as needed.
