NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (, a leading provider of enterprise Time and Attendance / Workforce Management solutions, announced today that Grindmaster-Cecilware™ has adopted NOVAtime’s latest touchscreen time clock, the NT7000, along with the NOVAtime 4000 SaaS system.

A global manufacturer of beverage dispensers and foodservice equipment, Grindmaster-Cecilware™ has over a century of experience providing the coffee shops, convenience stores, and restaurants of the world with everything from coffee grinders and tea brewers to commercial fryers, ranges, and ovens. The company boasts a rich history of innovation, having introduced the first fully automatic coffee urn in 1963 and the first commercial powdered beverage dispenser in 1994, and it continues this tradition with its recent lines of flavored powder cappuccino machines and digital coffee brewers.

Since 2010, Grindmaster-Cecilware™ has managed its workforce using the NOVA time 4000 SaaS system, which is a cloud-based solution that enables user-friendly, real-time management of overtime, attendance, leave, and scheduling. For its payroll processing, the company uses ADP, which integrates seamlessly with the NOVAtime 4000 system. As a cloud-based solution, NOVAtime 4000 SaaS provides all the functionality of a traditional licensed solution, but eliminates the IT headaches associated with maintaining licensed software on customer servers.

For the last two years, Grindmaster-Cecilware™ has used the NOVAtime 4000 SaaS system in conjunction with NT6500 clocks. The NT7000 smart time clocks that the company has chosen to supersede the NT6500 clocks offer many of the same functions, including biometric, proximity badge, HID badge, and key-in punch capabilities. The NT7000 also supports multiple languages (English, Spanish, French, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese) and photo capture of employees upon punch submission.

A 7 inch high resolution color display with touchscreen is the real draw, for many users, of the NT7000. According to Carrie Fletcher, Payroll and Human Resources Manager at Grindmaster-Cecilware™, employees appreciate the user-friendly design of the new clock, “All employees like NT7000 time clock’s optical fingerprint touch pad and the larger screen.” The clock’s state-of-the-art Lumidigm fingerprint reader ensures that biometric data can be captured in even the most challenging environmental conditions.

With the adoption of the NT7000 smart time clocks, Grindmaster-Cecilware™ has enjoyed more accurate timekeeping, since all data comes from one reliable source—the clocks—and not from paper timesheets or, worse yet, employees’ memories. Ms. Fletcher notes, “Supervisors benefit from the ability to monitor employee clock-in times in real-time.” Other supervisor capabilities that the clocks offer include employee lockouts, private messaging, and projection of training videos.

Of the services and support that Grindmaster-Cecilware™ has received from Cincinnati Time Systems (, one of NOVAtime’s prestigious Summit Partners, Ms. Fletcher is unequivocal in her enthusiasm, “When we have needed technical support—which is very rare—the response time has been swift and the support team has been knowledgeable.” Based out of Ohio, Cincinnati Time Systems was recognized in 2013 as the NOVAtime partner with the highest level of customer satisfaction and customer care.

NOVAtime is proud to offer cutting-edge technology to Grindmaster-Cecilware™. Gil Sidhom, Vice President of Research and Development at NOVAtime, explains, “The NT7000 was designed for today’s cloud-computing environment, and it meets the demand for heightened security and accuracy that such an environment creates.” NOVAtime is looking forward to a lasting relationship with Grindmaster-Cecilware™ and the opportunity to provide this leader in the manufacturing industry with solutions that rise to the challenges of a quickly changing world.
