Fargo, ND, November 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Qqest Software Systems today announced a strategic partnership with Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. (ABS), a leader in online and PC-based employee scheduling. This partnership will provide Qqest customers with a best-of-breed time and attendance and scheduling solution.
As a result of the collaboration, Qqest customers will have access to a complete set of scheduling tools seamlessly integrated into their time and attendance software system. Customers will spend less time scheduling employees, reduce unnecessary overtime, and ensure proper staffing. They can also manage rotating schedules and time off, and track skills and staffing requirements.
“The ABS partnership is a strategic step that will enable us to compete in markets that require more sophisticated scheduling, such as healthcare, government, manufacturing, retail and hospitality,” said Jose Gaona, director of product management and operations at Qqest. “There will be zero ramp-up time, and none of the pain that goes along with working out the kinks of a new product. Our existing and new customers using TimeForce II have immediate access to the best scheduling software out there.”
The combination of the two products’ functionality means even more benefits for customers, including:
· Great Value: With the new scheduling functionality, TimeForce II offers a more complete feature set at a more competitive price than other products on the market today.
· Better Control and Reduced Overtime: Managers can easily compare information on hours scheduled versus hours worked, allowing them to better control overtime and monitor employee work patterns.
· Enhanced Efficiencies: By automating both time and attendance, and scheduling processes, customers can realize significant efficiencies over using paper-based or disparate solutions. They can take full advantage of their workforce, and have the right number of employees, with the right skills, in the right place, at the right time.
· Fast and Easy: Separately, the two technologies are extremely user friendly. Together, customers get a complete solution that is easy to set up, easy to learn, and easy to use.
“With close to 20 years of experience and 70,000 customers using our employee scheduling software, ABS had deep experience in this field,” said Jon Forknell, vice president and general manager at Atlas Business Solutions. “The partnership with Qqest will allow us to connect our customers with a top time and attendance solution, something that we could not do until now. ABS will benefit, Qqest will benefit, but most importantly, all of our customers will benefit.”
