"PayClock Online has greatly improved our payroll process,” said Meagan Bottrell, billing supervisor with Surgical Associates of Traverse City.

Cutting back-office inefficiencies, Surgical Associates of Traverse City in northern Michigan has selected Lathem’s cloud-based time and attendance solution, PayClock Online, to significantly improve its payroll process.

Founded decades ago, the busy surgical team has built a long-standing presence in its community, and keeps up with the newest technologies in the office and operating room. To increase efficiency, the practice wanted a time and attendance system that would automate payroll and offer a web-based solution. It chose PayClock Online to not only increase efficiency and save payroll time, but enable the practice to focus on what matters most: delivering the highest quality healthcare to patients.

“PayClock Online has greatly improved our payroll process,” said Meagan Bottrell, billing supervisor with Surgical Associates of Traverse City. “Before, I used a pencil and calculator to add staff hours. As you can imagine, this was very time-consuming. With PayClock Online, my payroll time has been greatly reduced.”

Bottrell said another significant advantage of PayClock Online is that staff can view their paid time off (PTO) totals in real time, replacing the printed spreadsheets they were provided by management on an as-needed basis. Allowing their employees to access time and attendance information without being able to edit saves managers additional time and headaches. Employees use their own PCs to clock in and out, view time and PTO records. Customized login rights can be set up to grant various levels of access.

Surgical Associates finds great value in that PayClock Online requires no desktop software to install or maintain, and future software enhancements and version upgrades are available automatically.

“PayClock Online is designed to eliminate the tedious and error-prone task of manually tracking employee time for payroll,” said Lance Whipple, Lathem vice president, Sales and Marketing. “Most medical administrative offices are already overwhelmed with insurance, billing and compliance, so they need their payroll process to be as streamlined and effortless as possible. PayClock Online makes payroll easy.”
