Mobile Timekeeping Application Built on Reverse-Engineered JPL Infrastructure
- Created on Sunday, 01 September 2013
Every year, non-exempt employees cumulatively waste over one man-year tracking their time and using the timekeeping Web page to save those times. This app eliminates this waste.
The innovation is a native iPhone app. Libraries were built around a reverse-engineered JPL API. It represents a punch-in/punch-out paradigm for timekeeping. It is accessible natively via iPhones, and features ease of access.
Any non-exempt employee can natively punch in and out, as well as save and view their JPL timecard. This app is built on custom libraries created by reverse-engineering the standard timekeeping application. Communication is through custom libraries that re-route traffic through BrowserRAS (remote access service).
This has value at any center where employees track their time.
