Add-on Modules From NOVAtime

If you already have the NOVAtime solution in place, add these modules for better workforce management and productivity. Below are some product descriptions and overview so you have a better idea of what each module can do.

NOVAanalytics™

This software is an add-on module for the NOVAtime 5000. It provides a platform for you to use for your Software as Service data in Microsoft Office. This add-on app for your workforce management network device allows you to send or extract figures, graphs and information from preset tables integrated in the app. It employs Pivot Tables, MS Excel or Pivot Charts to extrapolate data.

NOVApower Analytics™

Through Open Data Protocol, you can synch NOVAtime 5000 system to NOVApower for data visualization. Companies always struggle with big data, and how they can be converted into easy to digest visual formats to relay the message to management and personnel alike. It features pre-programmed graphs that are aesthetically pleasing, but also easily understandable. You can also schedule the deployment of the reports through an email.

NOVAtime ASM

The Advanced Schedule Module eliminates the middleman, so to speak, as you can automatically schedule tasks for employees, input the location, key in the certifications as well as the other qualifications. You limit employee-management interaction by allowing employees to just check the terminal for scheduled tasks, or if they are on leave.

You can list down the employees that are eligible to perform a required undertaking. Next to the employee name are the contact details, the work summaries as well as the full accounting of all tasks that are denied and accepted.

Employees can also bid for work or a particular shift using the ASM, or swap schedule with their co-workers. If a vacancy opens up, the system can automatically contact any available employee through text message or voice call to perform the same job.

Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA) Module

NOVAtime’s PPACA module enhances the NOVAtime workforce management / time & attendance solution with robust features that aid compliance with provisions of both the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The module assists in identifying employees that qualify for “minimum essential” healthcare coverage under the PPACA, helping businesses avoid penalties.

Exception Tracking & Point System

The NOVAtime Point System feature tracks employee attendance and exceptions, while assigning merits and demerits. It allows point values to be assigned to exceptions (e.g. tardiness, absences, and leaving early), and rules and threshold levels can be set up so that supervisors can view employees who meet or exceed the threshold of the selected exception type. Once a threshold is reached, the system can automatically generate pre-configured HR documents that supervisors may review with their employees. Ultimately, the Point System gives employers a cost effective means of awarding dedicated employees for proper attendance, while disciplining those who do not abide by company policies.

Expense Tracking & Reporting

The NOVAtime Expense module is a valuable tool for companies that require employees to submit company expenses. System administrators can configure all or specified employees to have access to the Expense module, which will allow them to input selected expenses (e.g. mileage, airfare, lodging, meals, etc.) via Employee Web Services. Expense records can then be submitted to supervisors for approval.

Notification Module

NOVAtime provides internal, system-define messages and email alerts for added efficiency in various stages of the system workflow. The NOVAtime Notification engine enables event triggers to be selected with filters and other specifications, keeping supervisors up to date and fully informed regarding their workforce

Schedule Lockouts

The most cost-saving function of the system is the NOVAtime Lockouts feature. This can be used to restrict employees’ use of the system, eliminating unauthorized overtime by preventing them from punching IN too early and/or OUT too late. Lockout restrictions can be based on an employee’s daily start/end time (fixed shift, or single schedule), or based on the Global Lockout setting that restricts all employees to the same lockout schedule.

Labor Metrix Integration

Explore leading-edge ways to implement your company’s performance-based compensation strategy, to improve the performance of your hourly workforces, with NOVAtime’s Labor Metrix Integration module. Performance compensation is a strategic tool used to achieve higher levels of business performance by linking revenue with increased productivity and efficiency. Beyond piece rate calculation, NOVAtime’s Labor Metrix Integration module takes the headache out of your performance compensation so you can focus on teamwork, alignment, quality and customer experience.
