What It Is: Fluency on the Move is a suite of talent-management applications that enables executives and managers to perform a range of duties on the move. The suite includes three apps: Workforce Explorer, Jot Note and Compensation Manager. Workforce Explorer provides users with anywhere, anytime access to key talent profiles through their mobile devices, incorporating gamification elements to improve the experience. Jot Note allows managers to enter feedback through those devices at the time events take place. And Compensation Manager enables managers to make "off-cycle" salary adjustments, access key market salary information and compensation analytics, and review budgets. Solutions are priced on a per-employee and per-app basis. Annual fees range from $7,500 to $60,000 per year, with discounts based on the number of apps utilized.
Why We Like It: Thumbs up to Peoplefluent for delivering apps that take full advantage of the mobile devices they're being used on, instead of just trying to shoehorn them on to a mobile platform, as too many vendors continue to do. There's no question that user experience was very much on the mind of Peoplefluent's developers. Users will appreciate the ease with which they can navigate through each of these feature-rich apps, as well as the gamification elements that are specifically found in Workforce Explorer. As more than a few companies have learned the hard way, you can purchase the best technology in the world, but if managers don't use it, what's the point? Suffice it to say, that shouldn't be a problem here.
