Kiwi-based iDt Group has launched a new cloud biotime solution, specifically designed for SMBs.
The company says Biotime is the first complete product development for iDt Group, who have over 15 years experience in the industry gained through the sale and support of third party time and attendance products. The company has, this way, made a move from reseller to vendor.
According to iDt, the area of Time & Attendance is a major cost saving opportunity for organisations where labour is a major cost and implementing the Biotime solution helps businesses ensure payroll accuracy, while moving away from manual timesheets or punch cards.
“Until now there has been a frustrating lack of Time and Attendance offerings in the market that offered the right mix of functionality and price for SMBs. The advances in cloud computing and over fifteen years of experience in the industry have allowed us to come up with a solution that we think should deliver the right solution for New Zealand businesses," says iDt Group director Hayden Burnett.
"We have always had inhouse development capability for customisations and integration, but we made a strategic move towards our own product development last year when we acquired part of an Australian company who had software that had a very strong awards interpretation engine but was outdated in all other facets. We’ve used this engine as the core code but the rest of biotime is completely new," says Burnett.
According to the company, Biotime builds on the growing the cloud ecossystem available to small businesses, adding cloud Time and Attendance to the cloud accounting and payroll solutions that have gained traction over recent years. “Xero’s success has really raised awareness of the cloud amongst SMBs which is great because it really does offer huge benefits to small businesses” says Burnett. “Biotime interfaces directly with all the popular payroll solutions available so now a ‘total cloud’ solution, right from time capture through to payment and general ledger, is available for businesses.”
A subscription to biotime also incorporates bioscan, the finger-scan timeclocks iDt Group has previously developed. The solution is available on subscriptions starting from $6.50 per employee per month.
