Econz Wireless and RuggedPhones have announced their partnership to provide businesses operating in tough environments with a full set of mobile applications from employee tracking, to time and attendance and payroll integration.

“RuggedPhones offer some of the toughest smartphones available,” says Harry Lane, VP, Global Channel Sales, Econz.

“Our suite of mobile apps will enable employers in environments like construction, manufacturing, distribution, and government to not only track their employees while in the field via GPS but to give them a full time and attendance record of who is on site and when. Fully integrated with their own accounting and payroll system, this gives employers accurate records in realtime.”

Chris Hoffman of RuggedPhones says the partnership with Econz Wireless is a perfect fit and will provide businesses and organisations with an enterprise-class time and attendance system in the toughest conditions.
“The TITAN range of Android phones has ratings from IP-67 to IP-68 for the Titan 5R and 7R. IP-68 is the toughest rating that can be awarded to smartphones and means that the Titan range will operate just about anywhere – in wet or dry and dusty conditions.

“All Titan phones are full-featured smartphones/tablets, compliant with US military standard, MIL-STD-810G, which assesses the viability of a product across a broad range of environmental conditions. The addition of the Econz Wireless mobile time and attendance, employee tracking and payroll apps to our offerings is a great fit for our markets which need mobile apps under the toughest conditions.”

“Industrial and service-driven organisations, such as traffic control, road building and repairs, construction and other field workers can now be tracked, clocked in and out, and movements accurately integrated to the accounting and payroll system. Econz is delighted with this partnership.”
