Running a small business is no easy feat. Not only do you need to keep customers happy, but you also must make sure you have the right staff and they’re tracking their time properly. This includes worked time, overtime, paid time off and benefit time. That goes for Holiday Pet Hotel, a popular pet boarding and daycare facility in southern California, 25 miles north of San Diego.
Recently, the company experienced a computer crash and lost all its data, including employee time sheets and important information like overtime, paid time off and benefit information. Doris Rodriguez, who handles payroll and other HR matters, knew she needed a new solution. As luck would have it, right before the crash, she received a promotional email from Lathem about PayClock Online, its cloud-based employee time and attendance solution – the timing couldn’t have been better!
Doris was able to use PayClock Online with the company’s existing Lathem time clock, the PC600 proximity badge reader. Lathem’s support team easily migrated existing time and attendance records and employee information to PayClock Online. It was so seamless, she said, there was no learning curve.
Moving from the desktop software to PayClock Online was as easy as 1-2-3. The set up was a snap, and employee time tracking in the cloud meant Doris could do payroll anytime, anywhere. She could even download payroll reports at her convenience. This came in handy one time when she was on vacation – she processed payroll remotely – and another time when she got sick and completed payroll from home.
"The PayClock Online software was very easy to set up.
I called into Lathem and someone walked me right through it.
It took less than two hours and we were up and running."
