NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (, a leading provider of enterprise Time and Attendance / Workforce Management solutions, announced today that Guaranty Bank & Trust ( has selected the NOVAtime 4000 STAR time and attendance / workforce management solution to integrate with the bank’s payroll software, ABRA. NOVAtime 4000 STAR is a self-hosted solution.

A bank with deep roots in Texas, Guaranty Bank & Trust provides personal and business banking services, as well as home loans and wealth management. Founded in 1913, the bank has built an in-depth knowledge of the communities it serves. This local knowledge, along with the bank’s solid financial moorings, allows the financial services provider to meet the needs of its customers in a way that few banks can.

The bank’s recent decision to implement NOVAtime 4000 STAR, the client-hosted version of NOVAtime’s workforce management system, was motivated in large part by the bank’s need for a system that would integrate with its payroll software, Abra, to reduce manual processes, thereby increasing efficiency. According to Deann Sowels, Vice President of Guaranty Bank & Trust, “The time and attendance software we were using previously never integrated with Abra. With NOVAtime, hours can be pulled into payroll from time and attendance, eliminating manual input.”

Another deciding factor in the bank’s move to NOVAtime was the web-based nature of the system. The bank’s 350 employees often travel between the bank’s 22 locations, making the system’s web-punch capability an ideal solution for collecting employee time. “Our employees clock in and out with Employee Web Services on their PC’s web browsers,” explains Ms. Sowels.

When asked about additional benefits of the system, Ms. Sowels referred to the solution’s robust reporting capabilities, as well as the ease with which the bank’s supervisors can monitor overtime and with which its employees can submit time off requests. Says Ms. Sowels, “The system is user-friendly; visually, it’s comparable to other systems, which makes training easier.”

Of the service and support that Guaranty Bank & Trust received from Automated Timekeeping (, a NOVAtime authorized reseller, Ms. Sowels gives glowing reports, “Byron Banken at Automated Timekeeping was very knowledgeable. He provided initial support on site, and additional support by phone. Gail Eddington was instrumental in setting up Abra integration.”

NOVAtime is proud to partner with Automated Timekeeping to provide leading-edge workforce management solutions to community-oriented companies such as Guaranty Bank & Trust.
