It’s Friday here in sunny South Florida! EasyClocking has just made it through another formal business week. With each week that passes by, EasyClocking finds new, interesting customers that find our Time & Attendance software useful, such as Kaolin Mushroom Farms, the third largest mushroom producer in the United States.
It operates three mushroom farms, a state-of-the-art composting facility, and other related operations, and sells over 1 million pounds of mushrooms every week, primarily throughout the eastern half of the US, to various retail, wholesale, foodservice and process customers.
Kaolin has distribution centers in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, and New Orleans. These facilities give the company a local presence in those markets and allow it to effectively compete with growers who are much closer to those areas.”
We had the chance to discuss some of the previous requirements and needs that EasyClocking met with another detailed yet successful implementation of our Time and Attendance system. Keep reading to see what Aaron the Technical Trainer had to say about his experience with the EasyClocking system:
Victor (EasyClocking Brand Communications):
I am their technical trainer. So, whenever we have things like EasyClocking and software and things like that…
So you could call yourself an implementation manager of some sort?
Yeah. I would say, since our work staff is nearly 1000 people, and at least 850 of them are hourly, this has created quite a management, it has gotten much more easy to manage these individuals, because we have this easyclocking setup now. The fact is, now we can reach back and grab reports, the ability to let individuals who say they weren’t here know they were here and that we have their fingerprint and have captured their time.
Yeah, well everything seems to be working just fine. The managers are handling the system really well, moving from hourly to salary positions, and moving from biweekly to weekly pay periods is easy, I mean things went from many calls a day to a couple calls a week from our staff asking questions about easyclocking. So, we know everything is working and things seem to be stable enough. Unless a clock goes down or unless we have a special case when an hourly employee stays more than a night or two to mess up his schedule, unless it’s one of those two cases, our IT team doesn’t get any complaints or calls about the system. Everyone is pretty happy with it.
