“Throughout our history we’ve been dedicated to making hourly and mobile work easier for both employers and employees,” said Stefan Midford, CEO of Natural Insight.  “Today, we’re taking a big step forward by injecting new level of mobile productivity into our platform that gives customers the flexibility to choose between a world-class web solution that works on any device in any browser – or, a native application that enables rich user experiences on Android and iOS devices.”

“Retail field operations are critical to our business and that’s why we partner with Natural Insight to schedule staff, capture time and attendance, collect data, and measure operational results in real time,” said Mike Skinner, Chief Technology Officer of ActionLink. “And now, with WorkTrak, our users will have the added benefit of a native application experience.”

The Best of Both Worlds:

Architecture Summary:

WorkTrak extends and enhances Natural Insight’s existing web architecture by delivering a native wrapper experience that presents the user with identical capabilities otherwise available in a web browser experience.  Therefore, the end-user experience is familiar and comfortable, and yet it harnesses the power of the device-side services to enhance off-line functionality and large volume photo capture.

Native Features:

  • Enhanced media handling
  • No limits on media size capture and upload
  • Access to native camera functionality (editing, cropping, rotating)
