Eagle Homes - NSW

Customer for over 7 years

Although there is various projects on the market, these things can be somewhat technical and daunting.

I couldn't recommend highly enough for the service they provide both pre-sale prior to purchasing the product and determining if it is right for you, but surprisingly post sales, and showing how to use it, and then testing it on our system with team viewer and actually facilitating that.

I vouch for the service that Aussie Time Sheet has provided and I can say we have been happily using their product now for 12 months. Thanks.

What happens to my time clock data if the power goes out?

Can the software calculate Overtime?

How are employee lunch breaks calculated?

Employee lunch breaks can be set up in the system up to automatically deduct a certain amount of time for your employee lunch break or alternatively your employees can record their lunch breaks at the time clock.

Can I use the time clock without the software?

Our time clocks require our Aussie Time Sheets software to retrieve and access the times logged. The software will automatically calculate daily and weekly worked hours and can also calculated your overtime and leave types.

How is the data stored and is it safe?

Our employee time clocks are secure when it comes to storing your employee data. Our network security system employs the latest encryption and intrusion detection and prevention technologies.

The time clocks have multispectral biometric capturing technology which captures the fingerprint characteristics at and under the skin and records this as a numeric string. the numerical string (binary code) is encrypted with a one-way algorithm. So, the clock checks enough unique points match the encrypted binary code. All in under 2 seconds which is pretty cool!

Are your products compliant with Australian Standards?

Our clocks are RCM compliant and have been tested to meet Australian EMC standards.

Can I install the software on two or more computers?

Our basic system is restricted to a single user. If you require multiple users of the software please Click Here for more information on our Premier software.

Can I use ATS basic on the same PC with a different login?

ATS Basic cannot be used on the same PC with a different windows login due to the software using SQL Server Local DB for its database. Local DB is a minimal version of SQL Server Express that is installed along with ATS Basic. While the application can be used by anyone who logs in, the database used is unique to each Windows login. As with many other user settings, the data is stored in the App Data directory.

Need multiple users to the software? Then our Aussie Time Sheets Premier version is for you!

Can I use ATS software outside of Australia?
