We are going to Vegas this week for the only exposition dedicated to Time and Attendance. This is the place where we get to share our expertise with others in the field, learning and growing with affiliates and resellers.

Our software has become so popular, in the last two years our customer base has more than doubled!

Resellers love to sell our intuitive, comprehensive software because it makes them look good to their customers. Offering a good product is tantamount to a reseller’s own reputation and we do a great job at maintaining that reputation.

Our software design includes a simple interface with added security features, overtime controls, plus accruals and expense tracking. It is the most comprehensive and easy to use software of  its kind.

Our customer service is friendly, local, and knowledgeable. We don’t outsource to call centers. Our agents know the software and the company well enough to sell it and troubleshoot concerns.

If you are a reseller attending the conference come find our both on Friday. Even if you won’t be at the convention in Vegas but would like the opportunity to resell our service, drop us a note and we’ll show you how to get set up.

We offer attractive affiliate incentives and an easy to use affiliate interface.
