Apple and IBM have launched ten new MobileFirst apps for iOS that enable new ways to work across a range of industries.

The two companies formed a partnership back in 2014 that will see the creation of over 100 industry specific applications.

Here are the new apps:

Shift Track For Managers
Shift Track for iOS gives managers a smarter approach to staffing and scheduling. By replacing inefficient paper schedules with powerful analytics and intuitive dashboards, Shift Track makes it easy for managers to stay on top of staff schedules, time-off requests, shift exceptions, and employee hours. Push notifications make it easy to manage requests for vacation, or track sick leave and paid time off. Never before has an app empowered managers with this much visibility and control over staff schedules.

The Travel Plan app was built to make trip planning a simple, intuitive, and integrated experience for business travelers.

Travel Plan incorporates trip approval and immigration compliance, so travelers don’t have to worry about multiple processes.
