TimeFiler commercialises timesheeting innovation

TimeFiler commercialises timesheeting innovation

Media release, 4 September, 2008, Enfinit Software, Christchurch, New Zealand: Christchurch-based Enfinit Software has taken their powerful timesheet-management software to the next level with the commercial release of TimeFiler.

TimeFiler, which has already found acclaim with pre-release installs in respected corporates including TNS Asia Pacific, Solid Energy and New Zealand’s Aviation Security, is emerging as a solid contender in the global market of timesheet management software.

Building on TimeFiler’s proven platform, the new commercial version now boasts additional leave request, rostering and payment functionality, all supported by 100% online access.

Enfinit CEO Ian Johnson says TimeFiler’s commercial release represents the culmination of industry insight and significant experience with human resource information systems.

“TimeFiler 2.0 is the result of a single-minded approach to smarter timesheeting. We recognised a gap in the market for a quality, web-based time management product, providing users a single website for roster, leave and timesheet management, and we have delivered,” Johnson says.

Borne out of a realisation that existing timesheet software was either too simplistic for medium to large organisations or too expensive, TimeFiler provides companies with a centralised and flexible application for managing employee timesheets with a scaled fee structure.

Clients pay a monthly fee according to the number of employees using TimeFiler, with no upfront license fee, long-term contract or termination fee.

“Because TimeFiler is a service-based model, clients aren’t burdened with large upfront costs or risks,” Johnson says. “They also feel secure knowing that we are continually improving our service to help their business grow.”

Key features in TimeFiler 2.0 include an intuitive interface - remotely accessible from any computer with an internet connection - customisable rules and layouts, seamless integration with existing payroll systems and robust, automated data entry.

“For many companies, the cost of payroll is the single largest item on the profit-and-loss statement,” Johnson says. TimeFiler provides employers with the tools to manage employee timesheets efficiently and cost-effectively.”

Currently, TimeFiler is servicing 2,500 consultants spread throughout 15 countries in the Asia-Pacific region for Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS), one of the world’s largest market research companies.

Enfinit’s founders were approached late 2005 to build an online SaaS (software as a service) timesheet-management product for TNS, and by mid-2006 all employees were using TimeFiler to submit their weekly timesheets - a process critical to the company’s revenues.

“TimeFiler lets us capture and analyse employee time sheet data in a common system across the region; it is one of the tools that allows TNS Asia Pacific to operate more profitably,” says North Asia finance director Michael George.

“We are using TimeFiler now to drill down and study the data in more detail to find further areas for improvement. Timesheeting is just the tip of the iceberg - TimeFiler is a valuable tool that helps drive efficiencies within the business.”

Closer to home, TimeFiler is managing timesheets for the eight national offices of New Zealand’s Aviation Security (AvSec).

In 2007, TimeFiler replaced over 800 paper timesheets throughout AvSec’s payroll and the benefits have been huge, says payroll manager Neil Gardner.

“We have no more high-pressure deadlines to be met during pay week since we can spread the workload throughout the fortnight; no more payroll data entry, and no more paper waste,” he says.

“What we do have is an extremely user-friendly system that ensures remote access, real-time reporting and reliable payments. Furthermore, we have access to professional support from the developers themselves should we ever need it. TimeFiler is indispensible for us.”
