By utilizing payments on-demand through TSheets and Activehours, hourly workers have flexible access to their earnings for when the unexpected happens, and can avoid incurring late fees on bills.
Eagle, Idaho (PRWEB) March 12, 2015
Two employee-focused tech companies, Activehours and TSheets Time Tracking, are partnering to revolutionize the way employees are paid for good. With this partnership, employees using TSheets to track their time at work can seamlessly use Activehours to get immediate access to the earnings for their worked hours, without the wait for payday. A unique force for good in the financial services industry, Activehours works by utilizing vetted employee timesheets and allows its users to pay only what they think is fair for the service.
This is a revolutionary solution to a pressing issue affecting millions of workers in the US. Each year, as bills come due ahead of pay cycles or hourly workers are hit with financial emergencies, Americans spend over $32 billion on overdraft fees. These fees—which represent a tremendous markup by banks and just one of many potential pitfalls consumers face when strapped for cash—cost Americans more each year than they spend on fresh vegetables. By utilizing payments on-demand through TSheets and Activehours, hourly workers have flexible access to their earnings for when the unexpected happens, and can avoid incurring late fees on bills.
“On-demand services are available for transportation, lodging and food. Why shouldn't employee pay be part of that? This partnership between TSheets and Activehours is pushing traditional payment practices further than anyone has in decades,” says John Spottiswood, SVP of Partnerships, Activehours.
Activehours and TSheets build security and accuracy into every step of the process. Available to any U.S. resident paid hourly and by direct deposit to their bank account, this integrated solution allows employees to unlock their paycheck on their own terms, backed by approved online timesheets. Activehours operates on a pay what you want platform—so employees are able to tip based on what they think is fair for each transaction. TSheets starts at $20 per month plus an additional $5 per user.
“TSheets believes in the power of employee happiness, and how it adds up to improve productivity and dedication on the job,” says Matt Rissell, TSheets CEO. “Activehours offers an ideal solution to financial stressors that can affect people’s focus and peace while on the job. By combining forces, we show how intuitive, employee-focused technology can be the source of major good in the work world.”
