La Jolla Playhouse Saves Hours of Payroll Processing Time by Using NOVAtime Time & Attendance/Workforce Management System

NOVAtime 4000 Software as a Service (SaaS) Supervisor Dashboard

I like the NOVAtime system. It does the math for me and there are no more manual calculations of paper timecards. It’s a big difference-I save at least a couple of hours each week, and we still have more employees and departments to roll out.

NOVAtime Technology, Inc., a forward-thinking workforce management solution development company, today announced that La Jolla Playhouse uses the NOVAtime 4000 Software as a Service (SaaS) hosted solution, implemented by Advanced Time Concepts, NOVAtime's authorized reseller.

La Jolla Playhouse is a prestigious, non-profit, professional theatre-in-residence at the University of California, San Diego. La Jolla Playhouse was founded in 1947 by Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire, and Mel Ferrer. In 1983, it was revived under the leadership of Des McAnuff and, since then, the Playhouse's repertoire has included forty-four world premieres, twenty-four West Coast premieres, and seven American premieres. It has won more than three hundred honors, including the 1993 Tony Award as America's Outstanding Regional Theatre.

La Jolla Playhouse decided to automate their timekeeping system and chose NOVAtime as their Time and Attendance/Workforce Management system provider. Their NOVAtime 4000 system went live in May 2011, used by La Jolla Playhouse to effectively manage timekeeping for their staff. Mary Harris, Assistant Director of Finance at La Jolla Playhouse, says, “I like the NOVAtime system. It does the math for me and there are no more manual calculations of paper timecards. It’s a big difference—I save at least a couple of hours each week, and we still have more employees and departments to roll out.”

The multi-level timesheet approval system was implemented by Advanced Time Concepts, Inc., a premium authorized reseller of the NOVAtime system in San Diego, California. Using NOVAtime 4000, employees of the La Jolla Playhouse are able to fill out electronic timesheets. Their direct supervisors electronically approve the employees’ time, and the department manager can make further approvals prior to the timesheets proceeding to payroll.

Ms. Harris adds, “We use the NOVAtime system to track projects that our employees are working on. They input notes into their timesheets to track what they’re doing. Everything is electronically recorded.”

When asked about the service provided by Advanced Time Concepts, Ms. Harris comments, “Mark has really been very helpful with everything we need. We’re very happy with their service and love the NOVAtime system. It is very intuitive and very easy to navigate.”

La Jolla Playhouse uses Paychex for payroll.

The NOVAtime 4000 SaaS solution is a web-based, multi-tenant, hosted solution. The monthly fee is based on the number of employees, users, and add-on solutions required by your business needs—a pricing matrix that ultimately leads to significant cost savings in comparison to traditional on-premise software applications. Deployment is minimal and fast, with no additional hardware/servers required. The scalability of the NOVAtime 4000 SaaS enables organizations to test its functionality, reliability, and performance in limited deployments, and also allows organizations to expand their enterprise-level adoption incrementally, as La Jolla Playhouse has done.
