Best-in-Class Workforce Management Software from Industry Experts

Software as a service (SaaS) or cloud-based (as it’s also referred to) time and attendance is on par with today’s transformative technology. It was just a few years ago that many companies were deploying customer relationship management applications (CRM), payroll and HR software on servers. And, while some still do, SaaS has simply disrupted the traditional method of deploying business management software.

Why Cloud-Based Software Instead Of On-Premises?

Here are some of benefits that our customers have gained by deploying ATS SaaS time and attendance:

Cost- ATS SaaS time and attendance is a ‘pay as you go’ which means you only for services that you need. If you are looking to implement a brand new time and attendance solution – it can be summed up as an operational expense whereas on-premises would be considered a capital cost. The scalability of ATS time and attendance is designed to give our customers a clear idea of what their monthly costs will be. This allows for much more accurate budgeting.

Data integration-ATS SaaS time and attendance was designed to allow application programming interface (API) connections to talent management, job costing, human resources software, ERP, and CRM applications. No more keying employee hours, labour and job codes manually in to an accounting or payroll software. After all, who wants to anyway?

Deployment- Implementation that takes years still exists in the world of on-premises software, although that can mitigated in companies that have a project leader. If the implementation of your time and attendance requires the purchase of a sizeable investment in a server, you are better off, with the SaaS option.

We realize that every company is unique, and in some cases, a cloud-based solution may simply not work in your business environment. That being said, when you consider the advantages, we think it’s worth serious consideration.

On-Premises VS Cloud-Based Time and Attendance



Benefit enrollment has become an ongoing challenge for employers and providers alike.  The Internet has become a part of daily life for most companies and has spawned software solutions to meet the demands of these organizations. As companies increase their use in all things web-based, they are finding out it’s just as easy to use online enrollment for employee benefits as it is for payroll stubs. In short, most business automation tools are done by using the Internet.

Human resource departments are devoted to providing effective policies, procedures, guidelines and support to operational managers within their companies. Today’s human resources managers need tools to help them reduce the manual workload, empower department managers and effectively manage human capital.
