cloud-based time and attendance

Automated time and attendance systems offer a number of bottom-line benefits, especially when every dollar counts. From improved visibility, to lower labor costs and reduced compliance-related risk, workforce management systems can measurably enhance your business operations. But with plenty of options to choose from, navigating through the sea of vendors can be tricky.

Here are 5 reasons you should consider EPAY’s cloud-based time and attendance system.

1. Affordability

Implementing a workforce management system doesn’t come cheap, especially if you have multiple pay rules and job types. EPAY beats out other leading providers with:

  • Up to 68% lower cost per user
  • Up to 97% lower implementation fees

We recently competed head-to-head against a workforce management system giant. Our overall quotation came in 73% lower than our competitors! Every case is different, but that’s just the beginning of your savings potential.

Our solution lowers startup costs. When there’s no software or servers to purchase, there’s no need for consultants to set up or for ongoing maintenance repairs. Additionally, automatic upgrades mean no need for a team of system administrators. You get to take that money and invest it directly back into your business. 

2. Fast Implementation

Did you know the average ERP implementation takes 16.1 months? That’s nearly 40% longer than cloud-based implementations, according to recent studies. Unlike other providers, EPAY gets you up and running in half the time. With our system, implementation takes no longer than 6 months, guaranteed.

We’ve structured our straight-forward implementation to be fast, easy, and as unobtrusive as possible. How do we do it? Our Data Exchange Client (DEC) makes integration with existing applications and payroll systems possible in as little as a few hours compared to traditional integration methods, which can take months.

3. Free Premium Level Support

Most workforce management providers make you choose a ‘tier’ of technical support and pay accordingly. Here at EPAY, we believe better service doesn’t equal bigger fees! We include dedicated client-relationship management and on-demand training as part of our promise to provide year-round, 24/7 customer and technical support.

Lean on your workforce management resource to oversee your account and assist with ongoing optimization. Take advantage of everything from quick how-to videos to reference guides, available through our self-service portal. Whether you’re reaching out by phone, email, live chat, or online case report- we’re here for you, ready to assist.

4. Pay Rule Flexibility

Large enterprises have an average of 300+ pay rules to manage, and many systems force you to squeeze these pay rules into preset formats with finite form fields. EPAY’s time and attendance offers:

  • More flexibility to capture intricate, unwieldy pay rules
  • Split shift accommodations
  • Labor agreements
  • State regulations… and more!

5. Top Tier Data Security

These days, there’s mounting concern about data security, especially when hosting sensitive information in the cloud. That’s why EPAY invests heavily in resources to ensure our data security and why our infrastructure exceeds industry best practices.

Here’s how you know you’re in good hands with us:

  • Data is hosted on a private cloud
  • Dedicated servers hosted at top tier certified data centers (SaaS 70 Type II, SSAE Certified)
  • Data encryption
  • 99.9% server uptime
  • Proactive system monitoring
