SSAE 16 compliance and renewal of Microsoft Gold Partner status affirm NOVAtime’s commitment to meet the highest industry standards for delivering and operating our managed timekeeping services.
DIAMOND BAR, CALIF. (PRWEB) January 20, 2015
NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (http://www.novatime.com), a leading provider of enterprise Time and Attendance / Workforce Management solutions, announced that it has again successfully completed another independent audit for the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16) Type II compliance and renewed its Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program with competencies in Application Development. The SSAE 16 Type II examination was conducted in accordance with the attestation standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, which confirmed that NOVAtime is operating in compliance with SSAE 16 standards for controls related to the development, hosting services, and support of its NOVAtime 4000 and NOVAtime 5000 application suites. In addition to the company itself, NOVAtime uses SSAE 16 Type II certified data centers to host its Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.
SSAE 16 recently replaced the Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) as a more globally accepted “attest” standard, which was issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB). The internationally recognized third-party assurance audit is designed for service organizations and examines data protection, privacy, confidentiality, and reporting standards. Completion of the SSAE 16 Type II examination (conducted by The Moore Group, CPA, LLC, Nashua, New Hampshire) indicates that NOVAtime’s processes, procedures, and controls have been evaluated, tested, and approved by an independent accounting and auditing firm. The NOVAtime SaaS solution, a hosted Workforce Management / Timekeeping service that NOVAtime provides to thousands of companies around the world, and its services were included in the SSAE 16 audit.
"We’re happy to continue to attain both certifications! The successful completion of this external SSAE16 audit is evidence of the world-class integrity of our operating procedures and quality of NOVAtime’s technology,” says Frank Su, President and CEO of NOVAtime, “and the renewal of the Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status differentiates NOVAtime Technology as a trusted expert in Microsoft technologies.”
Brian Harris, Vice President of Client Services, states, “SSAE 16 compliance and renewal of Microsoft Gold Partner status affirm NOVAtime’s commitment to meet the highest industry standards for delivering and operating our managed timekeeping services.” Mr. Harris adds, “NOVAtime has been a Microsoft Gold Partner since January 2009. We have continued to demonstrate expertise with Microsoft-based technologies and our ongoing commitment to the success of our workforce management solutions. The achievement also provides a differentiator and competitive advantage in an ever-increasingly demanding business environment."
