The NOVAtime solution not only supports leave requests with full approval workflow and audit trail, but also enables employees to view their accrual balances and usage history in real-time.

NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (, a forward thinking Workforce Management / Time & Attendance company, is proud to announce that it has supported its client, Ascension Public Schools, by upgrading their NOVAtime software to the most up-to-date NOVAtime 5000 SaaS Workforce Management / Time & Attendance System and donating smart time clocks to replace clocks damaged from the 2016 Louisiana Floods.

Ascension Parish Public Schools is a school district headquartered in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. With over 2,500 employees, 28 schools, and several other facilities, Ascension Public Schools needed a complete solution to track their large workforce. They selected the NOVAtime 4000 SaaS solution with 173 NT450 and 12 NT7000 biometric smart clocks. These clocks are able to quickly read an employee’s fingerprint to allow them to punch in and out, access their timesheets, view schedules, and more.

Jessica Geason, Ascension Parish School Board’s Chief Accountant, says, “One of the best features of the NOVAtime system is its ability to allow employees to request time off. The NOVAtime solution not only supports leave requests with full approval workflow and audit trail, but also enables employees to view their accrual balances and usage history in real-time.”

This past August, when severe flooding affected a large portion of Louisiana, Ascension Public Schools was caught in the affected area. Several of the schools and one school warehouse were made inoperable by the rising water.

NOVAtime wanted to help; NOVAtime connected the Ascension Parish School Board with the Tzu Chi Foundation, a Buddhist non-profit organization which has worked closely with NOVAtime in the past on other aid efforts. The Tzu Chi Foundation, which had mobilized their resources and were already volunteering their time in Louisiana for flood relief efforts, seized the opportunity to help. The Advocate states that Tzu Chi distributed $500 cash cards to 262 affected families!

NOVAtime added their own personal touch with a donation of 12 NT7000 smart time clocks, 20 NT450 time clocks, and upgrading Ascension Public Schools’ existing NOVAtime system to NOVAtime 5000, NOVAtime’s most up-to-date offering which expands system features. Ms. Geason adds, “While times here are still chaotic, we look forward to learning and utilizing more of NOVAtime 5000’s features in the future.”

As a company that believes in humanitarian efforts, NOVAtime is humbled to be able to offer help in some way, especially to a client whose mission statement is to help make “every child successful in an ever-changing world.”

Ascension Parish School Board uses Alio Payroll System for their payroll process.
