Corporate IT Using Cloud Apps to Merge Acquisitions Can Include Timekeeping
New York, NY, Sep 17, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
MinuteHound cloud-based biometric time and attendance provides an excellent opportunity for companies using cloud-based consolidation of divisions or mergers and acquisitions. In addition to quickly and easily providing a common timekeeping system which is also cloud-based, MinuteHound systems can significantly reduce operational and labor costs associated with payroll for a net "win" during a time of expenses and overhead.
Cloud-based systems are becoming the systems of choice for companies and divisions that don't want to take on the operation of a full hardware-based system. A new acquisition or remote division can be online in less time than it takes to select, ship and install server hardware.
Capitalizing on this success, MinuteHound time and attendance systems use the same cloud principles to deliver a wide variety of services centered around the timekeeping data collected by their one piece of on-site hardware, the fingerprint scanner.
For a cost of less than $100 for the fingerprint scanner, plus pennies per day per employee, MinuteHound provides redundant storage and processing power in diverse geographic locations, software maintenance and other IT services, web servers, connectivity and support, all included in the monthly fees.
Merging acquisitions requires a great deal of agility, which is where MinuteHound comes in. For companies with any kind of timekeeping for specific types of workers, MinuteHound is a quick upgrade from whatever paper or keyboard-based system currently in use. Once the workers are enrolled, all they need to do each day is "swipe in, swipe out" and keep going.
Supervisors and management have access to a wide variety of real-time reports including current staffing levels and who's onsite. Various reporting formats, to include ASCII, PDF, and Excel, give insight into personnel and time history.
For immediate issues, MinuteHound can issue SMS (text message) alerts covering programmed topics such as late arrivals and early departures. Alerts can also be sent via e-mail. All of these are provided wherever Internet access and standard web browsers are available, including mobile devices, iPads and other devices.
MinuteHound data can be downloaded instantly from anywhere in a wide variety of data formats. MinuteHound allows companies to quickly turn operations from legacy and chaotic timekeeping systems to a quick and easy data source for accounting to connect to corporate payroll systems.
If transferring employees to or from the new division becomes an issue, MinuteHound will take it in stride. With a consolidated database of employees identified to scan, the software allows check-ins from anywhere. Adding fingerprint scanners is easy, and the system can track employees no matter where they are currently working.
MinuteHound gives companies the cloud-based tools and on-site presence to track new employees their way, quickly and securely.
