01 May Engage Mobile to Release First Ever Apple Watch Staffing App for Favorite Healthcare Staffing
We have been working with Favorite Healthcare Staffing – one of the largest staffing companies in the country – for the last year rolling out a state-of-the-art Favorite Staffing mobile app for both iOS and Android operating systems. The app allows Temporary Healthcare Professionals (THP) a way to easily document and submit their timecards remotely on any iPhone/iPad or Android device.
The Favorite Staffing app is about to roll out on the newest mobile platform – the Apple Watch. We are now testing the Apple Watch version of the Favorite Staffing App on actual Apple Watch devices. Favorite Staffing is the first staffing company in the country to roll out an Apple Watch app for Temporary Healthcare Professionals. The Apple Watch version will provide reminders and allow users to more easily track their time.
We are excited to start rolling out the app to users across the country.
The following is the nationally distributed press release:
