November 05, 2007

In a bid to more efficiently manage its nationwide workforce, Kaman Aerospace Corporation, (KAC) has chosen Kaba Workforce Solutions' AutoTime technology.
Kaba Workforce Solutions is the North American operating subsidiary of Kaba Holding AG, Switzerland, and the global provider of enterprise-class workforce management systems.
KAC has various locations located throughout the United States that staff hourly, contract and salaried employees at four principle operating divisions. As per the partnership with Kaba, approximately eight hundred employees will utilize the AutoTime application including components of time and attendance and labor collection.

Kaba's AutoTime offers workforce management optimization and is highly configurable, the solution offers time and attendance, labor data collection, labor costing, analytics and scheduling.
With Kaba Workforce Solutions' AutoTime, KAC is able to easily report labor on batch work order and multiple other operations, without the need for large amounts of user input and offers logic to determine labor staring and ending points.
The company noted their choice in Kaba Workforce Solutions' AutoTime technology for it's ability to integrate with and enhance its legacy enterprise system and because it conformed to the latest industry standards.
With AutoTime, hours and cost of payroll can be calculated for complex work and pay rules and because the solution is highly configurable, it is easy to change along with new policies.
"The Business divisions choose AutoTime for functionality that met their requirements and a Web based user interface," John Eames, Manager of the Software Development Group, for Kaman Aerospace commented.
"We required an application program interface that would allow us to integrate with our legacy enterprise system, and because business at the two divisions is managed differently, we required rules based application that would allow for each division's unique policies."
