NetSuite OpenAir Mobile Comes to Android Devices
The platform allows Android OS users to update and submit time and expense reports for projects on their smartphones and tablet devices.Cloud-based enterprise resource management (ERP) and financials software specialist NetSuite announced the availability of its OpenAir Mobile time tracking and expenses management platform for Google's Android operating system. OpenAir Mobile for Android includes a calendar to track and manage time, access to OpenAir time sheets and expense reports using the Android user interface and instantaneous synchronization with OpenAir accounts to use up-to-date customer, project and task data. "Services professionals increasingly rely on smartphones and tablets while on the road or anytime they need to access an OpenAir account," Ed Marshall, NetSuite Service Vertical general manager, said in a statement. "This new mobile app for Android puts the power of the cloud in the palm of their hand to perform more efficiently and speed time and expense reporting and approvals." The platform allows users to update and submit time and expense reports for projects. Along with entering receipt data, the app lets professionals in IT services, consulting, digital marketing and advertising, as well as media and publishing to take a photo of an expense receipt with their Android device, attach it to a record and synchronize the information with the organization's back-end NetSuite OpenAir PSA account.
As an example, services organizations that bill clients based on specific time and expense reports could accelerate processes and cash flow when consultants are able to enter time and expense data through a smartphone or tablet. The application is free and only requires a customer's OpenAir credentials to sync with their account.
