Time America Automates Time and Labor Management for Alpine Plywood Corporation

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2006 -- Alpine Plywood Corporation, wishing to improve their human resource processes, has chosen Time America's (OTCBB: TMAM) NETtime application to automate its workforce management system.

Alpine Plywood's goal was to find a Web-based system that would automate the time tracking process and provide simple coordination between the time clock and the computer. Since the NETtime installation, Alpine Plywood has a completely automated process and is now able to access the solution via the Internet anywhere on their network.

NETtime is a hundred percent web-based time and labor management solution offered in a hosted or licensed model. NETtime provides powerful tools that help companies know exactly where their workforce time and dollars are spent on a daily basis, allowing them to review and change operational processes as needed. NETtime also reduces the amount of time spent manually calculating and entering employee data, thereby reducing errors in the payroll process.

Supervisors and Managers now have access to tools that determine exactly when and where labor resources are being utilized at all times. Employees may login to their "personal page" to review their time card or request time off from any computer on the Alpine network via the Internet.

After an "easy and very smooth" integration process, Alpine Plywood has eliminated the manual tracking and calculation of employee time. Since the implementation of the NETtime, Alpine Plywood now has a functional, easy-to-use, cost-effective solution compared to the slow, manual time tracking system previously in place. This significant improvement is saving the corporation both time and money.

John Groskopf, Controller at Alpine Plywood Corporation, stated that the "manager level response has been great," and that Time America's "support team was very helpful." He also noted that the simplified transition process saved the company time.

"NETtime provides a seamless integration of data to Alpine Plywood's HR and payroll system, enabling accurate tracking and analysis of critical workforce data," said Jon Weiss, vice president of Business Development, Time America. "We are pleased that Alpine Plywood chose NETtime to address their labor management needs."
