Manufacturers turn to cloud-based time and attendance to modernize their back office.

“We were using a competitive offering, and the time clock couldn’t handle all of our employees leaving at once,” said Mike Beamish, project manager at the Ogdensburg, NY company. “We needed a better solution and we found it in Lathem’s products.”

What happens when 55 employees want to clock out at once and your employee time clock system can’t handle it? That was the case for DeFelsko eight months ago until they turned to Lathem for help.

“We were using a competitive offering, and the time clock couldn’t handle all of our employees leaving at once,” said Mike Beamish, project manager at the Ogdensburg, NY company. “We needed a better solution and we found it in Lathem’s products.”

DeFelsko, a 50-year-old family-owned business that manufactures and sells coating thickness and inspection instruments, uses Lathem’s PC600 automated time clock that lets employees clock in and out easily and efficiently. The employee time clock integrates with Lathem’s PayClock Online cloud-based solution, which provides real time viewing of employee time and attendance records, anytime, anywhere. An added benefit is that the Lathem RFID proximity badges that DeFelsko employees use to punch in and out have been programmed with their door access system, providing increased security and convenience.

“It was crucial that our time and attendance system worked,” Beamish said. “If people are in a big line waiting, they’re not happy. This system works as fast as people can walk by. It’s great because our hallways become congested if the system doesn’t perform.”

Beamish said that the PayClock Online employee time and attendance system has saved the company time and money.

“We’ve seen a huge reduction in the amount of time the production and accounting managers would have had to spend on editing time cards – I’d say we cut the time by half,” he said.

He also likes that Lathem’s time clocks can be used with its cloud-based system. Said Beamish: “The amount of time it takes to keep track of employees in our large, three-building manufacturing facility gets unwieldy. To ask, ‘Is X or Y employee here today? When did they show up?’ It’s nice when someone swipes a badge and it's all there.”
