What if federal workers had a mobile app at their disposal - literally at their fingertips - to track their use of sick and annual leave? Wouldn't that be a handy, useful and relevant function for mobile devices? It certainly would.
Now, thanks to its growing mobile apps efforts, GEICO is keeping pace with technological advances with a new mobile app that accomplishes two of the company's goals - maintaining strong ties to federal employees and keeping up with the technology of the 21st century.
The new app helps federal workers keep track of their vacation, holiday and sick leave. Built and designed by GEICO's mobile team, the federal leave app is currently available to iPhone, BlackBerry and Android-device users.
Here's how it works. Once the app is downloaded, customers can enter their initial balances of leave and their accrual rates for sick and annual leave. From there, the app automatically calculates annual and sick leave accrual. Customers have the ability to account for days out of the office and add credit and comp time to keep their card up to date.
Customers can also send the information that appears on the leave card via e-mail and connect with other federal employees via the GEICO Federal Facebook page.
GEICO has provided leave cards to federal employees free of charge for more than 50 years to help them track their annual leave. Now, with GEICO's mobile federal leave app, federal employees can push a few buttons to plan vacations, check sick leave when they're ill, and handle other leave-related matters.
