AUSTIN, TX, Feb 05, 2009 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- Asure Software (NASDAQ: ASUR), a leading provider of workforce management software, announced the release of a new Application Program Interface (API) to its iEmployee Labor and Time Management product that will increase its interoperability with time clock manufacturers, which will ultimately give customers even more choices.
The latest release of iEmployee's Time & Attendance API expands on the EasyTouch Time Clock (ETTC) and allows customers to use their existing clock hardware without incurring the cost of procuring new hardware and retraining employees to use it. This increased compatibility offers businesses a way to improve the accuracy of their Time & Attendance recordkeeping without incurring the additional cost of new time clock hardware. This release also benefits clock hardware manufacturers, who now have another integration option that is optimized to serve the mid-market, not just enterprise-level customers.
Customers can use the EasyTouch Time Clock (ETTC) off the shelf, work with iEmployee to configure ETTC to function with their existing time clock hardware, or customize it to function with a different time clock manufacturer of their choosing.
"The release of the ETTC was just one example of our ability to align with the needs of our customers," said John Stockton, iEmployee's Vice President of Product Management. "Even with the success of the ETTC, we realized that there were still many customers who want to change their Time & Attendance solution, but don't want to change their hardware because of the cost. With our new API, we now have a unique value proposition for iEmployee and it demonstrates our commitment to supporting the business needs of our customers. Additionally, this makes iEmployee more attractive to hardware vendors that are looking to partner successfully within both the mid-market and enterprise Time & Attendance space -- it's really a win-win situation for everyone."
