RALEIGH, NC — Acroprint Time Recorder Company announces the release of Pendulum Standard, Premium and Enterprise workforce management suite. The software has been redesigned from the ground up using Microsoft’s latest development platform to enhance database integrity and security. Featuring new functionality such as PC Punch with optional biometric fingerprint identification, the software is now fully scalable and able to accommodate unlimited users and employees.
To better meet the needs of businesses of all sizes, Pendulum is now available in three editions: Standard, Premium and Enterprise. In addition, optional modules are available to expand system functionality. Businesses can upgrade easily, quickly and seamlessly from one edition to the next as they require, without the need to install an entirely new system, re-enter data or learn a new interface.
All editions offer many data-collection options, including support for badge terminals (magnetic stripe or barcode) and biometric terminals (fingerprint or hand geometry). In addition, Pendulum now includes a convenient PC-punch option that allows employees to clock in and out using any networked computer. For added security, PC-Punch will also work with convenient Biomini USB fingerprint pods — providing the peace of mind of biometric verification without installing separate biometric terminals.
Pendulum will calculate employee work time and easily export data to third-party payroll services or software, eliminating clerical errors and saving time and money on payroll processing. All editions of Pendulum offer a variety of payroll and management reports to support effective business management. The administrator can opt to have reports run automatically and emailed.
For companies employing tipped workers, Pendulum supports both “cash” and “charge” tip recording and reporting.
The Standard Edition is a good fit for small and mid-sized companies of all types. It initially accommodates one administrative user and up to 300 employees, with upgrades available to expand system capacity to as many as five administrative users and 500 employees. It can handle up to 15 shifts or schedules and offers a setup wizard, multiple pay calculations, employee messaging, auto-poll and a system audit log.
In addition, the Standard edition can be upgraded with optional modules for signal control and access control/employee lock out. Access control helps secure your premises, while employee lock out prevents employees from clocking in/out outside of scheduled work hours.
The Premium Edition is perfect for companies that need job costing or where employees transfer among multiple departments or work groups. It offers all the features of the Standard Edition, including the signal control and access control/employee lockout modules. It initially accommodates up to 500 employees and one to five administrative users, and can be upgraded to support up to 10 administrative users and up to 1,000 employees.
In addition, it features unlimited shifts or schedules, department and job transfers, multi-company and configurable access groups. An optional module is available to support job costing and terminal validation.
Ideal for larger companies and those with more complex work rules, the Enterprise edition starts at 10 administrative users and 1,000 employees and can be upgraded to support unlimited administrative users and unlimited employees. It offers all the features of the Standard and Premium editions, including full functionality and all optional modules.
