There’s no shortage of options when it comes to tools that enable customers to do business, so it doesn’t take long for users to become overwhelmed.
Sydney-based enterprise mobility startup Mumba Cloud set out to alleviate that problem with an application that combines HCM (human capital management systems) into a single interface.
The application aims to eliminate the multitude of websites and apps required by large workforces into a platform that’s company branded available on any device via the cloud.
“We realised there was an opportunity to improve the employee experience when using these systems however, our goal wasn’t to replace HCM systems,” said Mumba Cloud chief executive Anthony Zets.
“Rather, we decided to build a range of ready-made modules that would easily plug into these systems and just deliver the most important 20 percent of functionality that front-line employees actually use.”
The company said that most of its customers have at least six systems that their employees need access to. The application also aims to eliminate the need to keep track of multiple passwords for each of these separate systems.
“We therefore combined all our modules into a single app that is easily accessed with a single password. And if our app includes the modules for mandatory systems such as pay, leave, rosters etc., then we’re able to guarantee employee adoption.”
The company launched the product at the end of 2016 and has signed up customers such as ISS Facility Services, Compass Group and Townsville City Council.
Along with direct sales, Mumba is also sold via reseller partners along with a partnership with a large public company to bundle its product into their financial products.
