The first Windows version of SuperTime was released in 1994 and was originally distributed as freeware with the Kraftwerk range of clocking machines. SuperTime was originally written in Pascal to run on a Sperry Mainframe computer. Later, during the MSDOS era it was translated into Delphi to run under Windows. During this period more than 47,000 end users registered the software. It is estimated that there are more than 50,000 unregistered installations of the SuperTime software, totaling a user base of around 100,000.
Many thousands of operators were trained in using SuperTime software over the years. This resulted in SuperTime becoming the first choice for time and attendance systems throughout Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Europe. Once a user became used to SuperTime, he or she will not easily move to another time and attendance system ever again!.
We have pleasure in announcing the release of the long awaited new upgraded release of SuperTime. To distinguish between the original freeware version of SuperTime and the new version we decided to brand the new development SuperTime+.
Even though the new SuperTime+ software received a total facelift, the very familiar user interface remained the same. It still has the same feel and touch of the old SuperTime software. Existing SuperTime users will have no difficulty in changing over to the new version. The basic concepts and terminology remain unchanged.
SuperTime+ supports amongst others, the ZKTeco range of biometric terminals later than revision 10. Data can be exchanged between the clock stations and central host computer by means of a variety of methods to suit various site conditions: In its most simple form, data can be exchanged with a USB memory stick. In a networked environment, local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN), each terminal is assigned a unique IP address and data can be exchanged via the network. Where no network is available, a GPRS modem can be attached to the biometric reader and communication can be done via a 3/4g cellular network.
SuperTime+ exports clocking data directly into all the popular payroll systems.
If the movement of staff is controlled by turnstiles, for access control purposes, SuperTime+ will produce accurate access control reports, showing the time employees spend for example in a cloakroom.
Tardiness in the workforce is identified quickly and easily. Research has shown that tardiness can cost an employer between 25% and 30% of their payroll. Implementing a SuperTime+ system reduces the loss due to tardiness to around 4%. That effectively means a saving of more than 20% of the payroll! SuperTime+ will therefore pay for itself under certain conditions in less than a month, depending on the number of employees.
SuperTime+ is licensed for the number of users. The annual license fee depends on the number of workers.
