Keep Your Team Together with TimeTec Profile
Employee’s personal and employment information is most of the time private and has to be kept confidential by the Human Resource department. Information such as staff’s remuneration packages and other sensitive information need to be safely guarded by the HR personnel to avoid office crisis and complication.

Conventionally, when a candidate comes for an interview, the person needs to fill up a form, bring their certificates and credentials, etc, and the HR personnel will file all the information and documents for future reference.

You Are Absolutely Right, Cloud Solution Is Expensive!
When asked about what is a setback of a cloud deployment within an organization, the answer is that implementation cost always tops the list. Customers often wonder why should they subscribe to a cloud solution when they could just buy a one-off similar Windows solution at a cheaper price? Yeah, why indeed.
There is nothing wrong with the existing Windows software except that of the initial get go, there are many steps involved in the installation such as setting up, user login and etc in which you are required to have an IT expert to run it. Trust me, without this guy, nothing moves. And on top of that, Windows software is also made to be quite rigid when sharing with other computers as well as login from other places are not permitted, because it is designed to be location-specific. Plus, don’t expect data from Windows software to be in real-time because it is not on cloud.
When cloud solutions are introduced, it brings a whole new meaning to the term data management. Cloud solutions promote seamless data management that is not bound by location or time of access. At USD2 per user per month for example, not only will managers be able to access the data from anywhere they want but also at anytime they wish too and the data they receive is in real time, which means that the data is always up to date and relevant. Users, on the other hand, do not need to carry their heavy laptops as cloud developers usually offer the mobile app as an additional tool for user’s convenience. The users of cloud system can be anywhere in the world and whenever they use a cloud system the data are always updated in real time for accuracy.
Of course, cloud solution is expensive. Running a cloud solutions team is definitely not easy on your bank account because you need to have the best team of coders to write the best user experience products your brand could ever deliver. The team must be able to identify problems and bugs at all times and they need to fix the problems the soonest possible and provide feature updates all year long with one objective in mind: To provide the best ever solution to the clients. What’s more, cloud servers also have to be set up, maintained, backed up, and secured from all ends to achieve the same objective for the customers. If all these are not expensive, then what is?
But most important of all, cloud solutions will provide customers with invaluable plus improved processes and amazing user experience that extends beyond its price. Definitely cloud solutions are expensive because of its subscription model, but it is loaded with useful features and convenience that makes the price aspect very minute in the bigger picture. By using cloud, users will no longer need to worry about server condition, maintenance, the IT guy, the database, etc because almost everything rests on the shoulder of the developers. On that note, companies that are reluctant to shift to cloud solutions could find their decision to be costly in the near future when data needs to be at your fingertips at all times.
And for USD2, what can you buy? One Nacho Cheese from Taco Bell. Think about it.

Automation Disrupts Everything
Automation wave is coming strong around the world, disrupting all industries and everybody has to respond to it or face the consequences of being left behind. The financial industries are being shaken by automation, regardless of their preference. Robots are replacing people in warehouses and factories. Traditional businesses are rattled by the emerging business models that rely on data and not assets like Airbnb, Uber, Grab, and etc.
Data is being collected at all times from various sources and in different formats to feed organization with the best possible way to react about a decision or to a change that’s been happening. Some view automation as catastrophe for human workforce because they will be replaced by a system but some see it in a positive light where automation will provide employees with more time to focus on the things that matter, and to obtain accurate information without having to deal with human errors and noisy data.
When FingerTec embarked on this biometric journey, data automation was indeed our priority because we could foresee that major change that will take place in the future that will disrupt the equilibrium of the world we knew and data would be KEY. True to form, the world is going gaga about data, and now we are taking it literally to a higher level, the cloud. Having attendance data like biometrics data to be used in Windows software was a breakthrough 10 years back but having data to be used on a centralized cloud solution accessible worldwide is the world we live in today. Dealing with scattered data reduces effectiveness and productivity as opposed to having data at your fingertips at all times.
Workforce automation solutions must focus on providing convenience and practicality to its users so that they can embrace the new solutions without much hassle. In dealing with this disruption, FingerTec embraces change by being ready with not one cloud solution but an array of workforce solutions on cloud that can be deployed individually or as a whole by any company with a single sign-on and matching apps for user convenience.

TimeTec is cooking up TimeTec Hire, cloud-based recruitment solution that giving companies control over their hiring processes to dodge bad hires and save the company a lot of time and money.
