Main features of the TA100 System
Microsoft® Windows 95, Microsoft® Windows 98(SE), Microsoft® Windows® ME, Microsoft® Windows NT, and Microsoft® Windows 2000
Ease of Use
The TA100 Time & Attendance Software Package is an easy to use time management tool which enables you to automate:
- Employee Time Collection and Calculation
- The Application of Payroll Policies
- Attendance Tracking
- Gross Wage Calculation
- Distribution of Personnel by Department
- Costing by Department
- Report Generation
- Data Input for Payroll Processing
- Interface for Third Party Payroll Services
- Employee Messaging
- Bell Ringing* (Optional Module)
TA100 is completely menu driven. All processes are clearly marked and follow a common operating thread throughout. For ease of operation, TA100 also has a graphic tool bar to allow quick access to the most commonly used functions.
TA100 contains an "Online Time Card" punch editor. This allows you to edit the employee's punch information right on the employee's time card.
The TA100 Transaction editor provides a simple means of correcting punches and adding new ones by scrolling through existing transactions.
TA100 allows you to quickly scroll through and edit an employee's schedule. Once an employee schedule is set, the system remembers it so you never have to key in the schedule again. TA100 makes applying rotating schedules quick and easy.
TA100 will generate over 20 different listings on everything from Employee addresses to your Main Company setup. In addition, TA100 will generate 50 up-to-date reports on everything from Annual Attendance to Who's Not In today.
All data is available at any time for reporting. The amount of historical data that the system will keep is limited only by the size of your hard drive. Previous data can be compressed and archived to save disk space.
Company Policy and Rules
Shifts and Rounding
TA100 prevents over-payment for long lunches and breaks. Automatic lunch and break deductions may be taken based on elapsed time worked or during a specific window of time. Rounding can also be set up to dock for long lunches and breaks preventing payment for time not worked. In other words, you may require that employees punch in and out for lunches and breaks, deduct for late punches, or establish allotted windows of time for lunches and breaks and deduct the time automatically. This will prevent overpayment to employees who don't take the full time allotted for lunches and breaks.
TA100 will support both fixed and floating shifts. Employees may either be assigned a specific start and stop time, or they may punch in and out randomly. Rounding rules can be setup around start/stop times or the actual punch time to avoid overpaying employees. Attendance codes are applied to each segment of the shift rounding segment to track employee's compliance with shift start/stop times.
TA100 supports an unlimited number of shifts. Unusual shifts schedules with staggered start times are easily handled.
Overtime Rules and Pay Period Calculation
TA100 supports three levels of overtime on both a daily and pay period basis. You can pay overtime if a specific day of the week is worked. Overtime can be paid on a weekly, bi-weekly, or semi-monthly basis. Semi-monthly overtime carryover is also supported.
TA100 supports weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, and monthly pay periods. Employees on different pay periods can all run concurrently on the same system.
Employee Time Collection and Calculation
When using multiple data collection terminals with TA100, an employee can punch at any of these terminals. An employee can punch IN at one terminal, transfer departments at another, then drive 40 miles and clock OUT at a remote location.
TA100 supports the use of multiple TA520, TA530, TASC, and TA620 Data Collection Terminals.
Optional support for use of multiple Hand Reader and ATS series Data Collection Terminals.
Automatic Processing of Data Collection and Report Generation
Each user must enter a Login name and Password before they can access the TA100 system. The system can limit the user to certain menus, what they can do while in a given window (add, edit, delete, view, etc.), and which employees they can access.
Use you Companies Terminology
Another attractive feature of TA100 is the ability to change the names of key fields and automatically have all the menus and reports change to reflect the new name. For example, if your company doesn't have "Departments", but has "Cost Centers", simply change the name "Department" to "Cost Centers" and all references to departments will change to Cost Centers.
TA100 allows you to define three system fields in the employee's master record. These fields can be used to store items such as birthdays, spouse's name, license number, emergency number, etc.
