M3 Releases New Features Within Labor Management Mobile App
Features released in M3 Labor aid employees with punch collection and bi-lingual capabilities
M3 is proud to add exclusive and advanced features to its mobile app, M3 Labor. Through the power of M3 Labor, users now have the ability to render the application in Spanish, provide for punch collection, and submit time-off requests for approval. These new features are targeted to ease the process of requesting time off for hotel employees and create an easy-to-use bilingual platform that will better serve M3 customers.
M3 launched M3 Labor in June 2021. The initial release allowed management users to easily monitor hours and performance KPIs from their mobile devices via custom labor variance dashboards, which present metrics, such as hours worked, labor dollars, POR (Per Occupied Room), and more.
“With the high adoption rate of the app across the M3 customer base, we saw the need for added functionality that will help hoteliers manage labor and increase productivity. With mobile applications on the rise, we want to ensure that hoteliers can effectively manage their labor, through the app itself, without logging into a desktop computer,” said Labor Management Product Owner, Steve Pappas.
The added functionality of bi-lingual capabilities will be helpful for non-native English speakers and those who would prefer Spanish text. M3 Labor will now allow the user to set their personal language preference while displaying all of the same information and features on the app as it would appear in English.
Punch collection will allow hotel employees to submit time punches from their mobile devices with unique selections for property and job assignments when necessary. This new feature functionality aims to streamline the clock-in-clock-out process for employees on every level.
The request time off portal will allow hotel employees to request PTO (Paid Time Off) and managers to approve the request within the mobile application. This new functionality will simplify the request off process for hotel employees and managers and directly insert approved time off into the employee pay record and schedule.
M3’s proprietary workforce management solution, Labor Management, is used by over 32,000 employees working in over 1,000 hotels across North America. The M3 Labor mobile app is made to simplify technology for hoteliers, allowing them to monitor their largest expense, labor, in the palm of their hands. M3 has multiple new releases planned for the remainder of the year that will truly allow hoteliers to manage all facets of labor from their mobile devices.
Current and future M3 Labor Management customers can now download and access the app in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store using their Labor Management login credentials. The app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
