Powerful Tools You Need to Manage Your Labor Costs

In an ever-changing economy and business environment, the one thing that can help a business control costs is an end-to-end workforce management solution. By automating routine tasks, optimizing pay and shift rules, and providing interface options to create detailed labor cost reports, our scalable SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions help you achieve this goal.

Functionality that Works for YOU

NOVAtime provides one of the most robust, scalable, SaaS (Software as a Service) workforce management solutions on the market, accommodating a virtually unlimited number of employees, pay codes, and pay rules. With a parameter-driven, open modular design, the system easily adapts to organizational changes.

  • User-friendly online portals for administrators, supervisors, and employees.
  • Highly configurable dashboard for supervisors and administrators that consolidates everything on a single screen, from employee data and daily processes, to system information and hardware statuses.
  • Interfaces with over 300 3rd party applications, including payroll/HR/ERP systems, eliminating double entry of shared information.

Robust Timesheet Editing & Approvals

The NOVAtime Timesheets feature enables supervisors to review, edit, and approve their assigned employees’ timesheets. Employee punches and attendance exceptions are displayed on the timesheet, as well as on the supervisor’s dashboard for quick corrections as needed.

  • Audit log to track edits and adjustments.
  • Reason codes and notes to prevent or resolve disputes over data changes.

  • Holiday rules – paid hours, scheduled day before/after qualifiers, prorate hours based on historical hours worked, etc.
  • Accrual rules – vacation, sick time, PTO, etc.
  • Pay matrix rules – complex shift differential and premium rules.
  • Point system rules – automation of attendance policies.

Workflow-Supporting Notifications

NOVAtime is workflow-enabled, allowing users to configure customized workflow approval levels for timesheet editing and supporting notifications via phone, email, or text message of events requiring attention, such as pending schedule requests, offline data collection devices, and employee no shows. NOVAtime’s flexible workflow approval levels support up to 10 approval steps, as well as a user delegation feature for cases in which the normal designated approver is absent or requires assistance.

User-Friendly Self-Service Portals

NOVAtime is web-based for all users, including payroll administrators, system administrators, supervisors, and employees. Self-service user accounts can be accessed through a PC via a standard web browser, as well as through selected time clocks, mobile apps, or the Phone-in System.
