WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 28, 2011 — For the first time, federal employees will have unlimited mobile access to their annual and sick leave via their iPhone, BlackBerry® and Android mobile smartphones, thanks to GEICO’s newest application. The GEICO Federal Leave mobile app allows users to access their most current annual leave balances, credit hours, complimentary time, as well as calculate leave accrual rates and account for sick days out of the office.
"GEICO has developed a mobile version of the leave card with tech savvy federal employees in mind. Now employees can track their leave anytime of the day or night, anywhere in the world," said Steve Smith, GEICO assistant vice president information technology. "We are consistently looking for ways to integrate new technology to enhance the experience for Federal and military personnel."
