Best-in-Class Workforce Management Software from Industry Experts

It wasn’t too long ago that the naysayers predicted the demise of cloud-based software solutions as “Johnny come lately”. The growth of cloud-based software solutions is staggering and companies, who initially resisted, are now implementing these solutions in growing numbers. The continued momentum behind the cloud has accelerated as companies look for an alternative to on-premises applications that drag down business performance. ATS best-of-breed technology is fast moving beyond its roots in the small to mid and enterprise markets.

If your company is looking move your time and attendance to the cloud, there are numerous companies vying for your attention. However, not all cloud-based time and attendance providers are created equal and selecting the right vendor is an important decision that should not be overlooked. Here are five things to look for when making your selection:

Performance- Make sure your provider gives you easy access to their real-time visibility of labour analytics and historic data. That will quickly tell you how robust a system they have. Cloud computing is evolving rapidly and cloud-based providers need to be nimble to adapt to the demands of today’s rapid technology. Look for a strong record of innovation on cloud technology that demonstrates your provider is positioned strongly to meet your business needs in the long term.

Scalability –As your business grows and needs change, look for a solution that will work with different browsers, that will adapt to your needs and makes it easy for you to expand to new markets. The ideal vendor will have a solution that allows you to configure your software and has the ability to interface to multiple applications. 

Upgrades –On-premises time and attendance software can be customized, but those customizations are tied to your current software implementation and can be a nightmare when you are due for an upgrade. In contrast, a cloud-based time management solution like ATS TimeWork is continually upgraded so you can be sure you’re always using the latest, most advanced version of your time and attendance software.

Market Leader-Moving to the cloud is a long term investment. As such choosing the right partner makes it that much more important.  It’s important that you choose a market leader who stands head and shoulders above all imitators. Consider the types of customers the vendor has for added insight, along with testimonials. And don’t stop there, make sure this vendor has personnel that not only understand industry at large but most importantly, your business and your precise requirements.

True Cloud Competencies-Finally, but perhaps more importantly you should choose a provider whose core competencies are centered on the cloud. Some On-premises solution vendors have very different business models, application design approaches and infrastructure than those core competencies of a cloud-based provider, like ATS. We suggest you choose a vendor with deep expertise in cloud-based time and attendance software implementations to meet your needs.
