NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. and BEDMINSTER, NJ — ECONZ Wireless, a mobile platform software provider, and Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider, today announced Timecard, a Get It Now® application that enables employees to log time, attendance and job information via a mobile timesheet directly from their wireless phones.

"We are pleased to offer another ECONZ wireless product to Verizon Wireless small-to-medium business customers," said Jim Straight, vice president of multimedia services for Verizon Wireless. "We anticipate that Timecard will address the time tracking needs of many mobile working professionals and fill an important niche in the process."

"Timecard is ideal for companies where time and attendance tracking is useful for determining job completion and maintaining records of working hours and job types," says Steve Davis, chief marketing officer for ECONZ Wireless. "Because it is available through Verizon Wireless' Get It Now service, mobile professionals can easily access log information at all times from a remote location."

Timecard, a two-part Web-based software product, enables mobile professionals to log clock-in times, break times, job categories, and clock-out times in addition to accessing past and present timesheet information, eliminating the need for paperwork transactions. Perfect for employees that are on a site for long periods of time, Timecard customers capture their task and time information without having to go back to the office. A necessity for projects managers as well, Timecard also helps administrators view the status of their employees at any time for accurate budgeting and customer service responses.
