Sirenum Launches Briefings to Simplify Dynamic Worker Training and Notifications

Contextual Training for Hourly Workers Drastically Improves Performance and Compliance

London, UK–Sirenum, the leading UK-based provider of technology solutions for innovative temporary staffing agencies, is proud to announce the launch of Sirenum Briefings, a new tool for building, distributing, and managing training and notifications for dynamic workers. Sirenum Briefings

Temp agencies and other employers of dynamic workers often struggle to distribute notifications or training to their workers, who usually lack traditional technology means for accessing them. Because most elearning tools are built with desk workers in mind, they fail to take these challenges into account.

That’s why Sirenum built Briefings. An additional module in the Sirenum product, Briefings allows internal management teams to easily build everything from simple one-line notifications to more sophisticated employee training and then distribute these briefings to the relevant workers. The briefings can be designed and their distribution filtered by job type, job site, client, or a number of other variables. This ensures that the right briefing is going to the right person. Then, management can easily track responses and Sirenum will automatically leverage that information to refine schedules. Finally, because like the rest of the Sirenum platform, it’s built on Salesforce Lightning, every step in the process is fully audited.

“Sirenum has always been about getting the right people to the right place at the right time and paying them the right amount,” said founder and CEO Benjamin Rubin. “In my years managing a temp agency, one of the hardest parts of that equation was getting the right information to those workers as well. With Sirenum Briefings, we’ve made it so simple to get the word out, and confirm when a worker has acknowledged it–the confidence it brings in knowing you’ve got the right people on the job is priceless.”

Sirenum Briefings has already been in beta use with multiple Sirenum clients this year. It is now generally available to all Sirenum clients and prospects as an add-on module.

“Dynamic workers have been overlooked for years from a technology perspective,” added Joshua Pines, co-founder and director of corporate development and marketing. “The Sirenum platform has aimed to change that from the beginning and Sirenum Briefings continues with that mission.”

Sirenum Launches Sirenum Clock for BYOD Hardware Time Capture and Site Access

New BYOD Solution Cuts Hardware Time Capture and Site Access Costs by Up to 90%

London, UK–Sirenum, the leading UK-based providers of technology solutions for innovative temporary staffing agencies, is proud to launch Sirenum Clock, a BYOD (bring-your-own-device) solution for hardware time capture and site access. 

Temp agencies that provide staff to work sites where access is controlled have long struggled to cost-effectively capture time and attendance while meeting client standards for site access. Expensive solutions for hardware time capture were often difficult to integrate with while hurting the bottom line of the agency or end client, and sometimes both. With modern hardware punch clocks costing well over £1,000/year with few advantages over old-fashioned punch clocks, many agencies and their end clients still rely on paper timesheets to calculate pay.

But Sirenum Clock changes the calculus. With a simple combination of an NFC-capable phone and a specially designed version of MySirenum built to manage the time capture and site access process, Sirenum Clock is easy to use for agencies, sites, and workers, with limited infrastructure requirements and at a fraction of the cost of traditional hardware solutions.

“When we launched Sirenum, we decided that our primary goal was to streamline the management of staff with whatever technology we can build. Our Sirenum software platform, including the MySirenum family of mobile apps, is obviously the most powerful component. But we also understand the value of hardware in the right use cases,” said founder and CEO Benjamin Rubin. “With Sirenum Clock, we’re transforming the way our clients and their clients think about managing time capture and site access.”

Sirenum Clock has already been in beta use at multiple Sirenum client sites since late 2017 and the company is announcing its availability at the 2018 Recruitment Agency Expo London.

“As a company, we are laser-focused on innovation in dynamic workforce management, and time capture and site access are areas ripe for innovation” added Joshua Pines, co-founder and director of corporate development and marketing. “Delivering a BYOD solution is exactly the kind of innovation our clients and their sites and clients need right now and we’re thrilled to launch it at a prestigious and innovative industry event like the Recruitment Agency Expo.”
