DIAMOND BAR, CALIF. (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Today, NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (http://www.novatime.com), a leading provider of Workforce Management solutions for enterprise organizations, announced that Des Moines Public Schools (DMPS) has selected NOVAtime to automate its time and attendance process for over 5,000 permanent and part-time employees. The subscription-based Enterprise Workforce Management system, NOVAtime 4000 Software as a Service (SaaS), will help DMPS standardize its pay policies in order to improve accuracy and reduce administrative costs. The subscription service presents a cost-effective alternative, while also presenting significant business advantages.

NOVAtime 4000 SaaS provides government agencies with the ability to manage employees' time and attendance with accuracy. The system calculates job and labor data to control expenses; while also allowing payroll administrators to prepare timely payrolls with exceptional reliability. With NOVAtime 4000 SaaS, DMPS is not required to pay recurring license fees, and this is a key contributor to the low cost of ownership of the system.

Additionally, DMPS will use over 80 NT6500 fingerprint time clocks that feature Indala Readers. This cost-effective and strategic option will allow DMPS’ employees to clock in and out using the same badges that are used with their existing access control system.

DMPS, in association with the Des Moines Independent Community School District, is the largest public school district in Iowa. “We are delighted that Des Moines Public Schools chose NOVAtime as its partner for this important project," says Frank Su, President and CEO of NOVAtime. "With NOVAtime, they'll not only be able to improve the district's timekeeping processes, but they will also see an increase in employee satisfaction. The NOVAtime system has been focused on delivering a solution and support model that meet the unique requirements of the public sector. DMPS’s decision to partner with NOVAtime validates our effort and long-term strategic view of this market. We thank the DMPS board and staff for the confidence they have put in us.”

Brian Harris, Vice President of Client Services, adds, “Our multi-tiered software architecture and cluster design allow us to add server capacity on-demand, at the precise tier-without interrupting service. It offers true scalability to easily handle the size of DMPS.”

NOVAtime’s public sector partner, Government Software Solutions, provided assistance in responding to the district’s solicitation and was engaged throughout the procurement and contract process. “We are very pleased to be partnering with NOVAtime in the public sector and assisting with such a strategic and high-profile government agency in Iowa. We look forward to working closely with NOVAtime and its reseller community as we expand our presence in the federal, state and local government marketplace,” says Ty Hall, President of Government Software Solutions.
