The Town of Franklin, a picturesque community located in upstate New York near the Adirondack Mountains, is using Lathem’s PayClock® Online cloud-based time and attendance system to efficiently manage time and attendance for its employees.

Town managers cite accessibility, accuracy and convenience as the online time & attendance solution’s most important benefits.

Supervisor Art Willman manages the finances and many HR-related duties for the Town of Franklin. This involves managing time and attendance for the non-elected employees, who include mechanics and motor equipment operators. He shares the payroll duties with secretary Melissa Begor, and works closely with her to manage the Town of Franklin employee time entries and payroll.

Begor can work from a remote location on the days she processes payroll, without having to head to town hall. “Being able to access the information remotely is a huge plus,” Begor shared. “Through PayClock Online, I can access all entries throughout the two-week pay period and resolve any issues before I finalize and process payroll.

About a year ago, the Town of Franklin was using a mechanical time card clock to keep track of employee hours. Having employees use paper time cards meant processing time and attendance records and calculating employee hours manually, which led to errors and inefficiencies. Also someone had to physically be in the office to access these records when it came time to process payroll.

The town switched to PayClock Online for the cloud benefits of anytime, anywhere access, and now the employees clock in and out with proximity badges using Lathem’s PC600 time clock, which integrates seamlessly with PayClock Online.

Willman said, “The biggest benefit is that PayClock Online keeps an accurate record of time entries. It’s more consistent, and errors are reduced. PayClock Online is a great fit for any small- to medium-sized town.”
