Looking to serve the needs of a growing mobile workforce, a cloud-based application from Senomix Software offers time and expense tracking via Mac or Windows desktop computers as well as iPad, iPhone (News - Alert) and Android devices.
Senomix’s strategy is to capitalize in on the huge growth in need for mobile workforce management applications. The number of mobile workforce management users is expected to increase from 0.8 million in 2012 to almost 2.5 million by 2018. That’s a projected compound annual growth rate of 21 percent, according to research from Berg Insight.
Yet the increased mobility of the workforce comes with challenges on the administrative side, particularly when it comes to keeping track of employee time and expenses—two key accounting tasks that require a collaborative effort. Senomix is trying to answer that need with its latest offering for employee time and expense tracking.

The Senomix Web portal is a cloud-based HTML5 and WebSocket app for the company’s Senomix Timesheets application. According to the company, the solution works with Microsoft (News - Alert) Excel to enable managers to create reports. It reportedly can be used as a stand-alone system, or as a front-end for QuickBooks or a database billing and payroll package.
The advantage is the flexibility of the system for employees who aren’t always sitting at their desks. According to Senomix, users do not need a dedicated Web server or database hardware to use Senomix Timesheets. Each employee can access their office's system from any location in the world with Internet access, via their smartphone, tablet or laptop computer.
Senomix Timesheets is available both through a hosted service plan from $9.50 per-user per-month, or through a self-installed in-office system available for a one-time server licensing charge. Both options can be purchased online through the Senomix website, which also offers a 30-day free trial.
