AMGtime returns to Staffing World 2019 in Las Vegas!

AMGtime will be returning to Staffing World on October 15-17, located at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. At booth #421, AMGtime will highlight why so many staffing agencies utilize their cloud system for time and attendance, biometric devices, mobile apps, and more. Tailored to staffing agencies, AMGtime has developed a Staffing Agency Module which allows agencies to track employee’s pay rates, client bill rates, and use a variety of biometric terminals at various locations.

Adding to the agenda this year, AMGtime is proud to announce that its own Director of Business Development, Marine Galstyan, kicks off this year’s lineup of “Tech Talk” on the topic of The Next Phase in HR Technology: Employee Engagement and Compliance. Taking place on “Tech Wednesday” on Stage 1 beginning at 10:30 am, Marine will go into detail about the future of HR Technology.

At booth #421, AMGtime will highlight its latest updates and newest features since visiting Staffing World last year. Two new features staffing agencies will greatly benefit from is the “Activity-Based Billing” that will consist of AMGtime software monitoring employee’s transactions within a billing cycle and only billing agencies based on those active employees. This will greatly benefit those clients who have employees working temporarily from job to job. This is expected to save a lot of time on the user’s end by not having to continuously change employee’s status in the system. Secondly, we have added the “Bill Rate Summary Report” showcasing what needs to be billed for an employee’s time worked in a division, job and/or department.

Additionally, we have added our Payroll Wizard for building new payroll exports directly from the system. Seamless API integrations with HCM and payroll software, such as the recent Execupay single sign-on partnership. One of our biggest updates pertains to compliance with local biometric laws using features such as the automatic and remote inactivation of employees and the removal of verification templates from devices. Lastly, we have created a Hybrid Integration Tool that will allow for faster and more efficient integration with other software vendors that staffing agencies utilize in case the other party lacks an API or unwilling to cooperate with AMGtime.

Staffing World is the largest staffing, recruiting, and workforce solution conference held by the American Staffing Association. Attendees are allowed to network with companies like AMGtime but also participate in workshops, mixers, book signings, and talking sessions. Keynote speakers will comprise of Becky Frankiewicz, Johnny C. Taylor Jr., and Jon Dorenbos. Visit AMGtime at booth #421 to learn more about time and attendance management solutions and its importance in the workforce.

Manage Your Staffing Agency with AMGtime’s Solutions

Efficiently manage employee time and attendance, pay rate and client rate, and managing employees working at different client locations can get quite strenuous for staffing agencies.

Fortunately, AMGtime has developed solutions that speed up the process and eliminate human error so that staffing agencies can focus on growing their business. AMGtime makes it easy for staffing agencies to introduce a time and attendance system to their clients.

Below are some popular AMGtime solutions amongst our staffing clients.

 

1. Staffing Agency Module

 

This module tracks employee hours at client locations, monitors employee pay rate and client bill rate, imports schedules, as well as runs a wage summary report that calculates wages on bill rate. Staffing agencies can painlessly manage their workforce with this solution.

 

2. Job & Department Costing

 

Job/Department costing allows management to apply varied compensation per employee based on different jobs and/or departments to which they are assigned. Employees of staffing agencies tackle different jobs throughout the day. Some jobs may require a different skillset and therefore higher/lower pay than others. This solution ensures that the appropriate wages are linked with the correct employee for their hours worked, making managing wages effortless.

 

3. One Screen Easy Scheduling

 

Scheduling employees have never been easier! One Screen Easy Scheduling allows managers to create and edit all employees or a group of employee’s schedules in one screen. This is great for staffing agencies as they often need to quickly schedule multiple employees all at the same time. This feature also allows for setting schedule rotations.

 

4. Badge Repository

 

Hardware provides one of the most efficient ways for Staffing Agencies to gather time and attendance data across multiple clients. However, can get time-consuming to transfer employee information across various devices in different locations. The Badge Repository feature allows you to save time setting up employees in multiple devices by manually or automatically transferring employee verification methods (badges) from device to another in one screen!

 

These popular solutions only represent a fraction of AMGtime’s offerings. For a more comprehensive look into what AMGtime can provide Staffing Agencies, click here.

How Easy It Is to Cater AMGtime to Your Needs

Scalability is one of the greatest assets that sets us apart from our competitors. Here at AMGtime, we believe creating tools that can help all angles of labor management. Our robust software that can truly cater to any industry’s and any company’s needs. Scroll below to read about some of the ways you can cater AMGtime to your needs.

  1. Customizable Dashboard

    Our system’s dashboard gives a concise, clear, and real-time overview of your labor’s attendance, absence, or tardiness. There are various ways to customize the dashboard. The Dashboard is comprised of a list of upcoming events, status board, last used reports/payroll, a graph of Missings/Tardiness/Absence, time off requests, last poll dates, and even missing punches. All the listed elements of the dashboard can be customized individually. You can specify which type of events you want to be listed, list the favorite reports and payroll you want readily available, as well as hide the widgets you don’t use often.

  2. Organizational Լevel

    The AMGtime system allows you to organize your company into multiple levels such as headquarters, division, groups, departments, and jobs. Each level can be more than one. For example, you can assign 2 or more headquarters with different names.

Certain companies might require an employee to switch between jobs and departments throughout their shift. This can make tracking an employee’s time complicated especially if the different job/department includes a different wage. Therefore, AMGtime has built out a feature, called Job & Department Costing, within the software that not only allows you to transfer between jobs/departments but also applies varied compensation to one employee.

  1. Reporting

    There are countless reports listed within our system, from government regulated ones like the 1094-C and 1095-C Reports to more AMGtime-specific ones like the Forecasting Report. We offer other reports that can be customized according to select employees, date ranges, categories, pay codes, and more.

  2. User Permissions

    Companies tend to have various levels of management with different responsibilities. The AMGtime system allows for different levels of access and permissions throughout the software. Different managers can be given varying access throughout the software to view, edit, add, or delete information.

  3. Category/Pay Codes

    The software includes standard categories or pay codes and also allows users to add an unlimited number of customized categories and pay codes for employee hours. These categories/pay codes include vacation, commission, sick, tips, and any other code specific to any industry. By setting the categories/pay codes, calculations of employee benefits will be automated based on the company’s policies. Along with this option to add, there’s also a report that can be broken out by these specified categories.

  4. Specialized Industry Solutions

    We offer specialized solutions for industries such as Skilled Nursing, Staffing, Construction, Hospitality, and more. This has made us a preferred vendor across many industries. Click here to see all the industry solutions we offer.

Let AMGtime’s Solutions Help You Manage Your SNF Workforce

Let AMGtime’s Solutions Help You Manage Your SNF Workforce

Managing Skilled Nursing Facilities has a lot of moving pieces. Accurately tracking employee time and attendance, scheduling the right number of caretakers for their patients, monitoring direct care hours spent per patient, maintaining compliancy, and more are crucial but time-consuming factors. Ultimately, they take time away from what matters most, focusing care on patients.

Luckily, not only does AMGtime provide efficient and accurate time and attendance solutions but has also developed the Skilled Nursing Facility module – a solution that was inspired by a long-standing SNF client’s pain points. The Skilled Nursing Facility module was developed to automate the calculation of the Nursing Hours per Patient Day (HPPD) ratio and Certified Nursing Assistant hours, to make sure staffing requirements set by the state and federal government are met. This also includes an XML output according to PBJ specifications as well as other relevant reports.

AMGtime helps control labor costs, minimizes compliance risk, and improves workforce productivity. Scroll below for additional popular solutions amongst Skilled Nursing Facilities.

 

1. Benefit Accrual & Mandatory Sick Leave Module

 

This module creates and configures rules for automatically accruing benefits based on a facility’s policy as well as an employee’s number of worked hours. This solution also calculates and adds available sick pay depending on hours worked. Through automating these calculations, the SNF can ensure efficiency in managing their employees’ benefits and sick leave.

 

2. Job/Department Costing

 

Job/Department costing allows management to apply varied compensation per employee based on different jobs and/or departments to which they are assigned. It is common for SNF employees to take on different jobs throughout the day. Some jobs may require a different skillset and therefore higher/lower pay than others. This solution ensures that the appropriate wages are linked with the correct employee for their hours worked, making managing wages effortless.

 

3. Workforce Scheduling

 

Workforce Scheduling automates the process of employee scheduling. Assigning schedules in an SNF facility has more nuances than other companies. Doctors, physical therapists, nurses, administrative staff, janitorial staff, and others make up a functioning skilled nursing facility. This workforce scheduling solution smartly schedules staff for appropriate shifts. Management can create schedules through auto-scheduling or using the ‘Best Candidate’ option to fill shifts. Managers can set specific certifications, skills, trainings, and/or other job qualifications. Meanwhile, employees set their own availability and preferences. With manager approval, employees can drop, pick-up, or swap shifts with colleagues of the same qualifications. This solution ensures required shifts are covered with the correct staff, eliminating mix-ups and coverage gaps.

 

4. Biometric Devices

 

AMGtime offers a vast collection of biometric devices with multiple data capture options.  SNFs can track employee’s attendance on devices through fingerprint, facial recognition, proximity badge/ID card, or PIN/password. Devices can be placed in multiple locations of the facility as all devices connect to our software and synchronize data in real-time. SNFs find facial recognition devices particularly attractive as it provides a hygienic, “no-touch” punch in.

These popular solutions only represent a fraction of AMGtime’s offerings. For a more comprehensive look into what AMGtime can provide SNFs, click here.
