Access TA100 or GENESIS from anywhere in the World…


TA Remote functions similar to RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol).  The application web-enabler provides browser based access to the application running on the host IIS server.  To the end user, TA100 PRO & GENESIS PRO/SQL function identical to their desktop counterparts. No retraining of administration or management required.  The main benefit of TA Remote is accessibility and speed.  By having a browser front end the application is now accessible from virtually anywhere in the world.  Since the browser is just a picture of the actual application running on the host server, the speed at which the application loads and moves from screen to screen is lightning fast compared to the same application running over a wide area network.


Since TA Remote accesses the same FoxPro or SQL database, upgrades of existing customers is as simple as implementing an IIS service, installing TA Remote and pointing the web portal to the existing TA100/GENESIS application.  There are no additional charges for upgrading and no database conversions.


TA Remote runs on a mid class IIS server with a capacity that matches the number of concurrent users needing to access the system.  A file server is not required but recommended.  The product allows for more than one IIS server to process the application pages (scales).  Other than IIS, no special software is required. User configurable settings allow you to select whether you want to print to a local default printer or a remote centralized printer.


TA Remote supports server “clustering”.  File/database, web and polling processes can now be distributed across multiple servers.  By doing this, your current application can scale higher without any significant loss in screen access or processing speed.


Eliminate payday panic! Know exactly where your employee’s time and dollars are spent by implementing your rounding rules, not your employee’s. By removing human error, accurately reporting employee hours and dramatically reducing the amount of time spent on payroll preparation, TA Remote along with the TA100 or GENESIS time and attendance systems will pay for themselves in less than one year!
