Employee time and attendance tracking is a key part of any organization’s operations, but it can quickly grow to be a black hole that seems to absorb as much time and energy as your admin team can throw at it. Optimum Time & Attendance was created to help free business owners and managers from the tedious, time-intensive activities associated with employee tracking.

Helping businesses with HR and time tracking since 1989, Optimum has distilled almost 30 years of experience and feedback into their current software suite. Today, they process over 12 million paychecks a year, and continue to constantly innovate and improve their services.

Stellar Support:  You’re already busy enough running your organization. So when you have a question about your time and attendance system, you don’t have all day to scroll through an FAQ—you  need to talk to a human being, and that person needs to be an expert! When you call Optimum’s support team, you’re calling their offices directly. Talk to the Optimum Time & Attendance support staff and you’ll find that they are professional, experienced, and many are Certified Payroll Professionals (CPPs).

Plays Well with Others: Optimum Time & Attendance is a stand-alone solution. Even when used in isolation, it provides a dramatic reduction in the time and expense involved in employee tracking. But if you really want to see what it can do, consider bundling it with some of the other Optimum solutions for HR and Payroll.

Clocking Options: Your company’s needs are unique to you, and Optimum can be customized to meet your needs. Whether you’re best served by physical time clocks or mobile apps, by full transparency or by limiting employee access, Optimum’s rules and procedures can be modified as you see fit. And if your needs change, just adjust on the fly. Optimum Time & Attendance makes it easy.
