UniFocus’ Time & Attendance Makes Quantum Leap
“We are pleased to announce the latest release of UniFocus’ Watson, R.M. Time & Attendance, which now includes robust payroll processing and intuitive reporting capabilities,” said Mark Heymann, UniFocus President and CEO. “Our advanced approach to time and attendance utilizes a new user-friendly touch screen that functions as an integrated staff communications device, accessible to both employees and management; we have taken out the guesswork, enabling hospitality organizations to focus upon profitability and service.”
The Watson, R.M. Time and Attendance system integrates with biometric or badge-reader systems so that employees can be easily identified. UniFocus has now gone further by creating the first “electronic signature” feature for time and attendance, allowing paperless employee approvals on any changes to their timecard.
UniFocus also provides its Watson, R.M. Labor Management System, which incorporates sophisticated industry-specific statistical analysis to project short-term business volumes; and then optimizes workforce schedules by identifying the critical relationships between key business volumes, such as number of guests to be served at any given point in time and the necessary staff to meet service standards.
“Our web-based workforce management system enables you to see the cost savings right away by preventing early punches or unauthorized overtime,” said Ken Heymann, UniFocus COO. “Along with T&A, there is built-in automated forecasting and scheduling functionality to ensure you have optimal staffing at the right time and place, so that service standards are never compromised and guests receive the service they desire.
“In addition, you can easily create group or individual schedules and run reports for absenteeism, time off, and see who is late or early,” continued Heymann. “Our clients enjoy smart time & attendance with seamless integration to labor budgeting, short-term forecasting and scheduling—all accessible from a single source.”
Since UniFocus’ Time and Attendance is web-based, even companies using manual solutions have access to labor information—any time, any place. At the touch of a button, time may be allocated to tasks for future job costing and various work distributions. And real-time management reporting provides the opportunity to make an instant assessment, quantify results and continuously improve performance.
Additionally, UniFocus’ Workforce Management is integrated with the company’s Budgeting application which enables flexible cost assessments in relation to actual business serviced and operating standards, thereby ensuring accurate evaluation of cost performance.
