Working with our Customers
We are dedicated and invested in our customers’ success. Our product, design, and engineering teams regularly engage with our customers and end users to discuss how our products meet their needs and understand the problems that they are looking for our products to solve.
Customer Advisory Board
We host a curated, invite-only group of executives from our customer base, all experts in varying aspects of workforce management, to discuss the market trends and real-world experiences that will influence our long-term product strategy.
The WorkForce Ideas Portal provides an avenue for our partners and customers to submit ideas for product enhancements and see what other users are asking for. The ideas portal allows us to crowd source ideas for product enhancements with a goal of delivering maximum value to our customers with each release.
User Interviews & Surveys
We spend a significant amount of time talking to our users to better understand their needs, how they work, and what they value. We receive feedback from our end users on the challenges they have with their current processes or solutions and build personas as well as opportunity assessments that outline and quantify these problems.
We also engage with our customers and end users in early discovery sessions and prototype reviews to ensure we are taking in a broad set of perspectives on user needs and arriving at a clearer understand of the problems that we are solving.
Our Product Vision
We focus our innovation efforts on delivering ideal and novel solutions to 4 important market problems that are pervasive and urgent in the markets we serve:
We build solutions that help our customers get more output from current labor spend by reducing the time and effort that is spent on manual tasks associated with managing their workforce.
We support our customers’ strategic decision-making processes by providing insights from their strategic workforce data which they can connect and correlate with other internal data assets.
We help our customers drive engagement via a new, responsive, and expressive user interface that serves up actionable information to managers and improves the communication between the employee and the employer.
We simplify compliance for our customers with automated updates of regulatory changes, smart notifications to prevent violations, and digital assistances to automate research on leave qualifications.
