Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions Adds Time and Attendance Module to Global HR and Payroll Offering

Provides Employee, Manager Self-Service via Web; Integrates Data From Company Time Clocks for Payroll Processing

RALEIGH, NC and SALISBURY, UK--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions, a leading global HR and payroll software and services business delivering expert solutions to clients in more than 160 countries, today announced details of its recently released time and attendance module. This module fully integrates with Logon 2, the company's single-platform, single-contract global HR and payroll management software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution. Particularly relevant to organizations where employees are paid hourly -- such as retail and manufacturing -- and to professional service organizations where client invoices are generated from employees' timesheets, this new module is easily accessible through Logon2's Web interface.

The ability to track employees' time and attendance accurately is crucial, but often complex and time consuming as employers must be compliant with numerous country-specific regulations, such as overtime and family leave regulations, as well as other directives. Manual processes, such as computer spreadsheets or paper-based timesheets, can be time consuming and often lead to errors and compliance violations. Patersons' new module automates the tracking of employees' time and integrates with the company's innovative workflow technology, allowing the verification and authorization of payroll data globally.

Key functionalities in Patersons' time and attendance module include:

--  Integration with time clocks: Data from any time clock systems
    (positive and negative time capture by one single source) can be integrated
    directly into Logon2 for payroll processing.
--  The ability to handle complex shift patterns with an unlimited number
    of parameters to each shift
--  Employee self-service via the Web: Employees can enter information
    online, such as an absence or a request for time off. They can also enter
    timesheet data, assign project codes to specific entries and add notes.
--  Manager self-service via the Web: Managers can approve employees'
    absence requests and time sheet information, create compliance reports and
    use data to identify location and worker-specific absence patterns.
--  Multi-language capabilities: A truly global application, available in
    over 30 languages
--  Full integration with Patersons payroll management system
    

Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions CEO, Karen Paterson, commented "Global time and attendance tracking is a business-critical function with unique characteristics. Time worked, as well as time away from the office, are driven by a multitude of business rules, such as union contracts, overtime rules, vacation accruals and country-specific absence management rules. Our time and attendance functionality matches the depth of our core global HR and payroll offering, giving customers access to information they need to properly compensate their workers for positive attendance, as well as manage the issues related to negative attendance."

Paterson continued, "For too long, companies have struggled to combine truly global payroll and time systems as an alternative to an ERP. We believe we are the first company to achieve this globally." She concluded, "We have a proven track record of excellence in international payroll and we are now going to do the same with time and attendance"
