PHOENIX ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT DECREASES LABOR COSTS
WHILE IMPROVING WORKFORCE TIME AND ATTENDANCE TRACKING
ExtendTimeTM Running on Cisco IP Phones Enables Tracking of Workforce Data
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., November, 28, 2005 ? The Phoenix Elementary School District is improving operational efficiencies and decreasing labor costs by replacing traditional time clocks with Cisco IP phones with ExtendTime? software ? which works in conjunction with NETtime® by Time Spot Inc. (OTCBB: TMAM).
Phoenix Elementary School District employees can ?clock in? and ?clock out? through any IP phone system regardless of where their workstation is located. Workers who do not have computer access ? such as cafeteria workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff ? are now able to utilize self service features such as employee message retrieval, viewing of scheduled work hours and accrued benefits such as vacation, sick and personal time.
By using ExtendTime, the Phoenix Elementary School District is leveraging its existing voice over IP (VoIP) infrastructure to eliminate manual tracking of labor data without purchasing additional data collection hardware. The district has purchased a 1,600-user license and initially rolled ExtendTime out to 400 employees using 200 Cisco 7900 IP Phones.
?This technology is likely to save our school district thousands of dollars in labor costs associated with operational inefficiencies such as employee time theft, human error in manual time sheet calculations, and administrative time spent creating reports from raw data,? said Paul Chase, director of systems operations, Phoenix Elementary School District. ?Upgrading our existing Cisco IP Phones with the ExtendTime system was an ideal means of reducing costs.?
?There is a growing trend to be more cost effective among school districts and colleges nationwide,? said Jon Weiss, vice president of business development, Time Spot. ?The simplest method of cutting costs is to look at operational inefficiencies, beginning with labor resources. By managing the workforce to become more productive, labor costs automatically decrease.?
ExtendTime, developed for the Cisco IP Phone by CalAmp Corp., works in conjunction with Time Spot?s NETtime® solution to significantly enhance worker efficiency across a range of industries.
