Charter Schools Administration Services (CSAS) designs, develops, implements, and manages unique educational opportunities and programs for lifelong learning. CSAS currently operates two charter schools in Michigan, the Academy of Southﬁeld and the Academy of Waterford, both of which are kindergarten through
8th grade schools. CSAS’s vision is to become a global leader in education programs and diversiﬁed goods and services for lifelong learners. In its endeavors to accomplish these goals, CSAS decided a more efficient time system had to be implemented to help manage its over 800 employees. In 2009, CSAS implemented the NOVAtime 3000 system and has not looked back.
Prior to implementing the NOVAtime 3000 time and attendance solution, CSAS utilized an outdated timekeeping product that required the download and transfer of data nightly. Upon meeting with Cincinnati Time Systems, CSAS realized the extensive beneﬁts of real-time data transfer and update of information. NOVAtime time clocks utilize push technology, which immediately and automatically upload data to
the main database as transactions occur, so data is updated and displayed in real-time. This provides clients with real-time labor information, such as budget vs. actual, report generation with the most recent data, system notiﬁcation of no-shows, and the ability to quickly determine which employees are available to
ﬁll in for absences.
Larry Falzon, a Human Resources, Payroll, and Time and Attendance Specialist at CSAS, and Project Manager of the implementation of the NOVAtime system, feels that the investment has paid off. Cincinnati Time Systems smoothly and successfully implemented the solution for CSAS, and Mr. Falzon states that the software and services provided to CSAS have exceeded his initial expectations. Mr. Falzon’s overall experience with Cincinnati Time Systems has been very positive, adding that “the service is always prompt, and the technicians are very polite.”
Not only is CSAS enjoying the exceptional customer service of Cincinnati Time Systems, it is reaping the beneﬁts of the system itself. Aside from basic clocking in and out, CSAS utilizes the NOVAtime 3000 system to generate payroll and supervisor reports. The entire system is innovative and intuitive, and Mr. Falzon has expressed that the best feature of the system is indeed its ease of use and user-friendliness.
The complete, ﬂexible, reliable, and innovative NOVAtime 3000 system, coupled with Cincinnati Time System’s outstanding customer service, continues to make NOVAtime a leader in the workforce management industry. Mr. Falzon agrees, and has stated that he would enthusiastically endorse the NOVAtime product and Cincinnati Time Systems to anyone in need of an automated time and attendance system.
