Bird Pick uses NOVAtime and saves time in payroll preparation.

NOVAtime Technology, Inc. ( , a forward-thinking workforce management solution development company that continues to apply the latest technology advancements to its suite of Time and Attendance/Workforce Management products and services, today announced that its customer Bird Pick efficiently saves time in payroll preparation.

Bird Pick Tea & Herb ( features premium loose and packaged teas, herbs, honey, and tea accessories for health- and taste-conscious individuals. The name Bird Pick originates from an ancient practice of cultivating the finest tea leaves. Extraordinary birds with acute senses would pick out the best leaves for their own nourishment. Bird Pick Tea & Herb applies the same standards by selecting the most aromatic leaves for their special blend of teas. Their teas are imported directly from the growers and their own tea estates.

In March 2008, when Bird Pick Tea & Herb faced the increased time spent on manual timekeeping to prepare for payroll, their Wells Fargo payroll representative sent them to Wells Fargo's preferred workforce management partner, NOVAtime Technology, Inc., to help them find the best fit in a timekeeping solution that would work well with their Wells Fargo payroll. Their ultimate goal was to simplify hours spent on collecting and calculation of rounding their employee time punches, managing and better controlling employee overtime, and preparing for their Wells Fargo payroll.

Technical Analyst Charles said, "Rather than managing employees and their hours manually, we are happy to find a workforce management company that provides the best quality time-and-attendance product and service." Charles stated, "Now we save time in our payroll preparation. Like drinking our soothing tea, I'm much more relaxed using NOVAtime's time and attendance solutions." He added, "and it was very affordable."

"NOVAtime provides a good workforce management product and service. They produce so many reports to help me better manage my employees' work hours--it's something you do not get with manual time cards," said Charles. Dennis Rodriguez, NOVAtime's Customer Service Manager, concluded, "Our goal is to have our clients like Bird Pick spend more time focusing on their business--offering high-quality teas, herbs, honey, and accessories."
