If you are considering a time and attendance for your business, chances are you are being bombarded with an array of choices. As you consider your options, one of the more fundamental decisions you will need to make is whether to select a hosted solution (that’s based in the cloud) or one that’s installed locally on your company’s Server.

Here are 5 areas to consider when deciding between a cloud-based or on-premise time and attendance solution:

Accessibility
Today, more than ever, more employees are working remotely, and need to access information quickly. The advantage of a solution like ATSTimeWorkOnDemand, is that it’s a better choice for accessibility and, one of the biggest selling points for a cloud-based solution. And, while some on-premise solutions, can be accessed through VPN services, they can be limited and not ideal for up-to-the minute reporting capabilities.

Cost of Ownership
ATSTimeWorkOnDemand Cloud solution costs much less upfront than an on-premise solution. The set up and run times for ATSTimeWorkOnDemand are also much quicker to deploy than an on-premise system —because you can start using the service right away once subscription is paid. When using an on-premise system and its time for an upgrade, your company’s IT must then redeploy the system across the various users’ computers and re-implement various customizations and integrations that your business installed on your previous software.

System Performance
ATS cloud-based time and attendance solution provides real-time data that can be accessed via the Internet 365 days of the year 24/7. That means your employees can see accurate information on laptops, smartphones, and tablet devices—all without extra setup fees or ongoing costs. ATSTimeWorkOnDemand Cloud delivers better performance than on-premise solutions.  ATS software architecture is designed from the ground up for maximum network performance, which means, better availability than a traditional, on-site software solution and, also offers optimized performance that can adapt to your organizational needs.

Updates and Enhancements
ATSTimeWorkOnDemand is continually receives updates so you can be sure you are always using the latest, most advanced version of the application. In contrast, while an on-premise software can be customized, those customizations are tied to your current software deployment and are not easy to re-implement with future versions, thus leaving your company with an outdated software.

Software Maintenance
Using ATSTimeWorkOnDemand solution means you do not have to worry about updating or maintaining hardware or software, because ATS will handle that for you. Spending less time and money on maintenance and updates means you can allocate those resources elsewhere. However, when using an on-premise solution, your company responsible for maintaining the hardware and software, as well as backups, storage and recovery. This typically requires an IT staff, which can be difficult for smaller companies to manage with a limited budget.

Bottomline: Which one is better? That will depend on your unique business needs—but more and more businesses are shifting to cloud-based software because of the upfront cost savings, accessibility, reliability and convenience it offers.

Tis’ The Season To Be Smart and Aware When Online Shopping

November 27th, 2019 | Posted by ATS in Artificial Intelligence | Business Intelligence | Google | Time and Attendance Blog, Workforce Management Software - (Comments Off on Tis’ The Season To Be Smart and Aware When Online Shopping)

Eggnog, ugly sweaters, and shopping, yes shopping are three things synonymous with the holidays. Whether you are into any of these or not, they have become some of the things to do, in North America, during the holiday season. And since, online shopping has become part of our holiday shopping habits, it goes without saying, a level of caution has to be applied before clicking on a link for those ‘must-have-shoes’ that are calling out to be bought.

A recent article byPAYTM Canada titledHow to become a savvy online shopper this holiday season provides some useful insights and tips on how to be aware and shop smart online during holiday season. It reads in part;

“Holiday shoppers are enjoying the wave of online deals and discounts, thanks to retailers creating a whole season of shopping specials designed to keep you browsing and buying through the dark days of winter. Online shopping conveniently lets you skip the cold, the crowds, the lineups, and the incessant holiday music in the stores. Plus, shopping online can be fun”. 

And before you pull out that credit card here are 5 tips from that can help you have Happy Joly Holiday if use them.

Shop securely

The number one rule of online shopping is to shop securely. Any reputable retailer will have a secure site — meaning any personal and credit card information you give them is secure. Look for the padlock icon in the address bar next to the retailer’s web address or an extra “s” in the URL after “http”. The URL should start with “https.” The last thing you want is to purchase a sweater for your mom only to have your credit card compromised and used to buy thousands of dollars of expensive stereo equipment.

You should also make sure you are on a secure Wi-Fi network. As a general rule, try to do all online shopping from the comfort of your own home. Using public Wi-Fi can leave your personal information vulnerable.

Search for deals

One of the biggest benefits of shopping online is the ability to comparison shop with ease. No more trekking through the entire mall looking for the perfect wallet. Tools like Google’s shopping search make it easy to quickly scour the web based on specific criteria like price point, brand, style, and colour. It’s like having a personal shopper at your fingertips.

Get rewards

We’re all about saving money while you spend money. Shopping online means that you will be putting your purchases on a credit card. Make sure your credit card has a rewards program so that you can rack up points that you can use towards paying off your credit debt or paying for things like flights, hotels and car rentals on your next vacation.

Shop brands you know and love 

There are so many online retailers out there competing for your money. Low prices can be enticing but there is nothing worse than ordering an item only to be disappointed when you open the package because it doesn’t meet your expectations. Your safest bet is to order online from stores that you already know and love. Being familiar with the service, quality, sizing and return policy helps to greatly reduce the possibility of getting stuck with something you don’t like or want. 

Ship smart 

When trying to decide what product to buy online, be sure to factor in where it is coming from and when you need it. To avoid massive shipping fees, it is wise to shop well in advance of the date you need the item so that you don’t have to express ship anything. Buying from Canadian retailers is the best way to make sure your shopping is in ship-shape. You’ll get your packages quicker and with little to no shipping fees. 

Bottomline: shopping online has become much easier than in previous years. And the number of Canadians and the world in general, who has flocked to online shopping is staggering.  In closing, shop secure and be merry.

There is a growing body evidence that shows that the adoption of; cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence is on pace to grow exponentially over the next 10 years and beyond. And, yet there still some resistance to embrace this type of technology. Many of today’s leaders understand the difference between staying put or adapting to achieve business success.

Automation’s Biggest Enemy: Cultural Resistance is the title of an article published by Industry Week that delves into the resistance, which in turn, prevents some companies from adopting artificial intelligence and reaping its benefits. It reads in part;

“While customers perceive that artificial intelligence (AI) will allow brands to deliver what they want when they want it, there remains a widespread lack of understanding among enterprises of the potential benefits for AI to solve real-world business problems. The biggest corporate challenge to implementing an intelligent business strategy is cultural resistance (49%), according to a new research report, “AI2020: The Global State of Intelligent Enterprise” by IQPC’s Intelligent Automation Network.

What’s Behind The Resistance To Artificial Intelligence?

Some of today’s forward-thinking companies understand the power of cloud computing and its impact on cost containment and have embraced business applications— like time and attendance, that has embedded artificial intelligence. For example, ATS TimeWork OnDemand was expressly designed with this mind— this robust application will propel your business operations and help your company keep pace with advance in technology.

The Industry Week article goes on to say; “AI will automate some jobs, particularly the dirty, dangerous, or dull work that people don’t want to do – everything from sewer reconnaissance to repetitive factory work. The skills needed for future employment include critical thinking and problem solving, good communication and teamwork, leadership, initiative, creativity and the willingness to leverage the current technology”.

In other words, artificial intelligence is not here to replace your job— it will help you do your job better.
