Avon Healthcare Upgrades to NOVAtime 4000 Time and Attendance / Workforce Management solution with NT7000 Smart Clocks
NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (http://www.novatime.com), a forward-thinking Workforce Management solution development company, announced today that Avon Health Center, a long-time NOVAtime 3000 customer since 2009, has upgraded to NOVAtime 4000 Time and Attendance / Workforce Management solution in conjunction with NOVAtime’s latest smart clock, the NT7000.
Avon Health Center in the Farmington Valley of Connecticut is an award-winning nursing facility that provides short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, hospice care, and other medical and nursing services. Family owned and operated, the center has served its community for over 60 years and is staffed by a skilled group of nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physicians, specialists, and registered dietitians. The center has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report on its list of Best Nursing Homes for 2014, and the Centers for Medicare Services awarded Avon Health Center a 5-star rating, Medicare’s highest rating for nursing facilities.
A NOVAtime 3000 customer for over 5 years, Avon Health Center decided to switch to the NOVAtime 4000 workforce management solution to take advantage of the newer system’s added features. Along with the software upgrade, the Center also elected to upgrade its timeclock hardware and, so, the Center’s 200 employees are now punching in and out at 4 locations using NOVAtime’s sleek new NT7000 FP smart clock with Lumidigm fingerprint reader. In addition to collecting actual punch times, the clock allows employees to submit time-off requests and perform multi-level group transfers, among a range of other features. For supervisors, the clock enables lockout scheduling, private message distribution, and the ability to load training videos. According to Karen Bandzak, payroll administrator at Avon Health Center, “Employees appreciate being able to check their timesheets, work schedules and accrual information at the NT7000 smart time clocks.”
Having recently switched from ADP to Paylocity for payroll processing, Avon Health Center’s upgrade to NOVAtime 4000 also involved integrating with the new payroll software. Andrews Technology (http://www.andrewstechnology.net/), recognized as the #1 Reseller of NOVAtime solutions in 2013, made sure the implementation of the 4000 system and its integration with Paylocity payroll software was successful. “Our contacts at Andrews Technology are all very knowledgeable. Jim Nowotny provided invaluable assistance mapping from Paylocity to NOVAtime,” says Ms. Bandzak, “And the project management, training, and documentation that Nancy Gilchrist provided was excellent.”
