Matrix Enhances Absence Management App with New Filing and Management Features

enhanced absence management appMatrix Absence Management, Inc., a leader in solutions to manage employee absence, productivity and related payments, has enhanced employee-level functionality to its mobile application. The technology allows employees to initiate absence claims and report intermittent time, as well as access leave information and correspondence, complete surveys and interact with their claims examiner remotely from their smartphone or tablet.

The new app is integrated with Matrix’s secure online portal, which also features mobile communication, reporting and analysis capabilities for employees and administrators.  Employees can also use the app to report intermittent absence from work. Additionally, this latest release allows employees of their customers to initiate a claim directly from the mobile device.

Matrix integrates workers’ compensation, short and long term disability, return-to-work services, and personal/family and medical leave (FMLA) programs to make employers more efficient and productive.

“Experience and industry research tell us people have turned their smartphones and tablets into administrative tools for their lifestyle,” Kenneth Cope, president of Matrix, said. “An absence from work today doesn’t necessarily mean being isolated at home, sick in bed. It can mean bouncing between health care providers and diagnostic tests, helping loved ones with medical or personal issues or taking time to resolve family issues.”

Matrix focuses on reducing the lost productivity realized when employees miss work for any reason. This service portfolio, called Absence Solutions, streamlines benefit delivery, simplifies administration and reduces overall benefit costs for any company. The new mobile app is available for free download through Apple’s App Store, Google Play or through Matrix’s eServices web platform, with which it integrates.
