(PRWEB) February 11, 2014
NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (http://www.novatime.com), a forward-thinking workforce management solution development company that continues to apply the latest technological advancements to its suite of Time and Attendance / Workforce Management products and services, announced today that it has successfully hosted its second User Conference February 4 - 6 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.
In line with the Encounters Conference theme of “Mobility,” NOVAtime previewed exciting mobile offerings planned for 2014. One of the highlights of the conference was Frank Su, Founder and CEO of NOVAtime, providing a live demonstration of the new Advanced Schedule Manager (ASM) product. The demonstration showed one employee calling in sick and the system automatically sending text messages to several qualified employees to fill the position. As one employee electronically accepted the position, the system filled the open schedule. Another employee who responded a bit later received a declination message, saying the position had been filled.
NOVAtime User Conference attendees also enjoyed a virtual tour of the data center, as well as overviews of new features that were introduced to the solution in 2013 and new functionalities on the 2014 development roadmap. Additionally, attendees benefitted from sessions presented by Adam D.H. Grant (“Use of Mobile Apps in the Workplace: Privacy and Security”) and Alfred J. Landegger, Esq. (“2014 Wage and Hour Trends and Litigation”). Mr. Grant is a shareholder of Alpert, Barr & Grant; Mr. Landegger is a senior partner at Landegger Baron Law Group, which specializes in employment labor laws and workers’ compensation.
During a Product Review Board session, NOVAtime’s guest speaker, Kevin Soohoo, CIO at Air Systems, discussed how their company has been successfully utilizing the NOVAtime system via PCs and iPads to manage both union and non-union employees since July 2011. Mr. Soohoo elaborated on the large-group feature that was implemented in NOVAtime to support over 15,000 combinations of jobs and work order codes.
Many NOVAtime team members were on hand, meeting with attendees that they have worked with on implementations and supporting installations. In addition to NOVAtime personnel, the conference provided an opportunity for attendees to network with other NOVAtime customers. Lucy Saldana said, “It’s really good to meet the other users and learn from each other. The interaction with other users was very helpful. I enjoyed learning about some features that are already in the system and ones that will be available in 2014.” Another conference attendee commented that she really enjoyed meeting other NOVAtime customers, and tweeted, “I had a good time at the banquet.”
NOVAtime’s social media was flooded with posts from enthusiastic conference attendees. Reyna Garcia posted on Twitter, “Best conference ever!!!! Great company!!!” Someone else tweeted, “History, products, networking... great conference.”
A NOVAtime user and conference attendee posted on Facebook, “I am excited to be here again. I was looking forward to this since last year’s conference. Looking forward to learning what is new for 2014. Excited for the multi edit feature.” Later, the same person posted again, “I downloaded the mobile app while at the conference. Thanks to this technology I was able to see some employees left work to go to the Seahawks parade but didn't clock out.”
The Encounters Conference not only provided information to users, but also enabled NOVAtime to gain insight from customers in order to guide future development. “The conference was very informative. It was a very pleasant experience, and we got to suggest new features that will help us be more productive,” said Tatjana Projkovska of Gerawan Farming Inc.
Brian Harris, Vice President of Client Services at NOVAtime, concluded, “This conference was the perfect opportunity for our customers to meet, share their experiences, and learn from each other. It was also an opportunity for them to witness the passion and energy of the NOVAtime team that continues to develop innovative advancements within the Workforce Management / Time and Attendance industry.”
