NetSuite users will now have the ability to access Cloud-based financial software on iPhone, iPad and iTouch with the release of a new mobile app.

The company has launched NetSuite TribeHR Mobile for iOS, the first mobile human capital management software app built for employees and managers, according to a company statement.

The mobile app enables anywhere, anytime access to HR information and social business tools that promote greater organisational engagement, productivity and morale, while accelerating the speed of business.

The integration of NetSuite TribeHR's employee data with NetSuite's customer and financial data means any changes in the mobile app carry through to the NetSuite back-end for joint customers.

The app is freely available to existing TribeHR employees, managers and administrator account users from the TribeHR website or the Apple AppStore. Its capabilities include mobile access to a news feed, a searchable employee directory, time off management and public recognition.

It enables employees to give and receive kudos directly from their iPhones, iPad or iPod Touch, making the feedback loop faster and more effective. It also leverages the native capabilities of each device to allow users to take pictures and attach them, to enable peer recognition and to leverage mobile device GPS data to illustrate an employee's location.

A planned future release is expected to extend NetSuite TribeHR Mobile for Android devices. NetSuite vice president, HCM products, Joseph Fung, said TribeHR Mobile delivered key aspects of the company's HR management and social collaboration tools to employees and managers anywhere.

"It extends the powerful social business experience of NetSuite TribeHR to meet personnel expectations for managing their activities and interacting with colleagues from the palm of their hands."
