Cloud computing services have become ubiquitous in recent years, yet there is nothing new about cloud computing. Some businesses have been slow to adopt it, in part because it was new to them and there were concerns regarding data security. These are both valid concerns; but as companies began to understand the advantages of a cloud based solution it has slowly gained traction in the business community.

 A 2011 study by AMD revealed that “Cloud computing is maturing rapidly, with 70 percent of respondents indicating they are either using or currently investigating cloud computing for remotely hosted applications or to store data.”  

When you consider the power of an ATS cloud based workforce management software in terms of its quick deployment, it is no wonder this model is fast becoming a staple for small and large organizations alike. IBM also found out in its own study that “More than 3,000 global CIOs of organizations are ready to embrace cloud computing over the next five years as a means of growing their businesses and achieving competitive advantage. The figure nearly doubles the number of CIOs who said they would utilize cloud in IBM’s 2009 CIO study, and is one of dozens of new insights and trends learned from CIOs worldwide in businesses of all sizes.”

Many companies track and maintain employee time, hours and other data with spreadsheets. Spreadsheets are also used for creation of pie charts, bar chart and line graphs. Spreadsheets do perform an important role and based on their history will not be going away anytime soon. However, we have noticed that too many businesses rely on this type of tool to track employees’ time and other data for payroll processing.  The problem with relying on spreadsheets to handle employee hours is that it comes with inherent risks. Manually keying employee hours into payroll, ERP or HRIS can lead to numerous unintended errors.

 Say good-bye to your spreadsheets! ATS SaaS Time & Workforce Management Solutions is a fully integrated software suite that does a great deal more than just track employee time. Our software helps organizations minimize payroll errors and automate time-consuming workforce management processes associated with time tracking, job costing, employee scheduling, attendance and labour distribution.
