DIAMOND BAR, CALIF., November 28, 2012 – NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (http://www.novatime.com), a leading provider of Workforce Management solutions for enterprise organizations, is pleased to announce that the NOVAtime 4000 Time and Attendance / Workforce Management solution has been enhanced to support an Automated Time Distribution feature. This allows employees’ daily work hours to be automatically distributed to selected labor groups and pay codes based on fixed hour amounts or percentages, as well as fixed amounts with percentage-based distribution of any remaining time to other selected groups and pay codes.
NOVAtime’s Vice President of Client Services, Brian Harris, explains, “The NOVAtime Automated Time Distribution feature allows managers to distribute work hours, automatically, without requiring employees to input job transfers throughout the day.” The enhanced feature calculates daily totals of qualified timesheet hours and distributes these hours based on the pre-configured distribution rules. Mr. Harris adds, “It extends the capability of the existing time distribution feature, which allows for manual distribution, and it is ideal for cases in which employees’ real-time transfers are deemed too time consuming and labor costs are routinely changed to a selection of labor groups. The end result is transferred to payroll and included in specific system reports for cost analysis and management.”
The NOVAtime 4000 Automated Time Distribution feature makes it significantly easier to manage labor hours and charge back or project billing based on predefine rules. Below are a few examples of the available distribution options:
- Fixed amount distribution: A company can configure the system such that, for all employees in the shipping department, the first two hours of work are automatically transferred to Customer A, the next two hours to Customer B, and the remaining hours to Customer C.
- Percentage distribution: A company can configure the system such that, for all employees in the shipping department, 20% of the work hours are automatically transferred to Customer A, 30% to Customer B, and 50% to Customer C.
- Fixed amount combined with a percentage distribution for any remaining hours: A company can configure the system such that, for all employees in the shipping department, the first two hours of work are transferred to Customer A, the next two hours to Customer B, and 30% of the remaining hours to Customer C, while the other 70% of the remaining hours are transferred to Customer D.
The Vice President of Research and Development at NOVAtime, Gil Sidhom, comments, “The Automated Time Distribution module is a very powerful feature. It automatically calculates the hours based on the distribution rules, therefore simplifying and reducing the time consumption of data entry for companies with the need for automated project tracking and charge back.”
