AccuCloud is ATS's new comprehensive cloud-based time collection solution that makes deploying, activating, and managing ATS time clocks easy and profitable. If you want to learn more about how AccuCloud smoothes out the path to resell time clocks to your customers, check this out. 

Here we'll show you how simple it is to get your customers' ATS time clocks configured, installed, and ready to collect data for your time and attendance solution. 


What happens when you become an AccuCloud partner?

Once your company comes on as an AccuCloud partner, we'll create your company's instance of the AccuCloud middleware on our servers.  

That's right – we host both the AccuCloud middleware and your time clock management portal on our servers. You can gain all the oversight and management benefits of the AccuCloud system without having to eat up existing server space or paying for more. Your company can preserve its infrastructure budget and resources for use on your customers.  


Choose Your Time Clocks

Next, comes deciding whether you want to offer biometrics, or time clocks with proximity cards, as well as configuration options. You can create configurations ranging from a simple punch in/out to handling job transfers and collecting additional information at the time clock.


Our Teams Talk and Test

During this time, we work on setting up the integration between your back-end system and ATS’ hosted middleware. We'll do integration testing to confirm the integration between the AccuCloud middleware and your system is running smoothly. We'll also provide you a test time clock to run full end-to-end data integration testing. 


Then we’ll make things look awesome for you.

In addition to configuring the ATS time clocks to meet your customer’s business processes, we can also customize the branding on the time clock and web portal with your corporate identity. Our customer-specific branding package goes way beyond just putting your logo on the ATS time clocks.*


Getting Your Customers' AccuCloud Terminals Connected

Now that you're ready to start enjoying the additional revenue stream of reselling ATS time clocks and the additional services that come along with it, you want to get your customers' time clocks installed and connected ASAP. 

When you bring a new customer onboard, our team will create a profile for your new customer on the portal, and your team can create users and give them access to monitor their own time clock deployment. 

If you so desire, ATS will ship the time clocks directly to your customer. No one on your team has to touch them, find space to store them, watch over them while they're stored, or take responsibility moving them from point A to point B. When your customer receives their  time clocks, they'll just hang them on the wall, connect power and internet. Once communicating, they'll be ready to take employee punches. 


Now the Really Easy Part Happens

  1.  Your customer will hang the time clock on the wall
  2. They plug the time clocks in
  3. Once the time clock connects to the network, it will communicate back to the middleware, and AccuCloud will push out the selected configuration and data sets down to the time clock.  

It is truly plug & play. AccuCloud handles software updates, configuration changes, and regular data flows the same way. 

This process lets your customers start using AccuCloud time clocks to capture data and send it back to your time and attendance solution in near-real time. 


Taking their AccuCloud Time Clocks One Step Further…

If you want, you can give your customer the same visibility over their ATS time clock installations you have by giving them access to the AccuCloud Monitor.  

Now your customer will have the power to see each time clock on its network, get the alert if one goes offline, conduct utilization analyses, and gain all the valuable insights the AccuCloud portal affords.

Biometric Usage: Growing concerns over the privacy and security of biometrics are driving government regulations surrounding the definition of personal data and how to protect it. These regulations vary from country to country, state-to-state, and in some cases city by city. Most often the governing regulations are dictated based on the location where the information is being collected. It is important to understand the local regulations in the geographic areas in which you operate. If you are uncertain regarding your regulatory obligations, we encourage you to consult with your legal counsel.
