ATOM-C is a precise and automatic method for tracking employee/ contractor labor hours using event data from your existing database. ATOM-C provides managers with real-time reporting along with historical views of employee and contractor attendance. ATOM -C eliminates the need for manual data entry, chasing down missing time cards or waiting for labor costs. Time sheets are automatically sent by ATOM-C to the appropriate individuals for revision and approval thus eliminating the delay in their receipt and impact on payroll. This web-based system allows any approved employee to access the system to check real time cost and hours. ATOM-C is now configured with HID brand of attendance card readers, but can be integrated with any other brand of card reading systems.
