New Version of Unitime Systems' Automated Timekeeping System Offers Multi-Level Approval Feature; Managers, Employees and Payroll Personnel Can Approve Hours Worked.BOULDER, Colo. -- Unitime Systems has released Version released version - release 7.0 of its UNITIME Automated Timekeeping System(TM), which offers an innovative Multi-Level Approval feature that allows more than one person to approve employee hours worked. That, in turn, helps prevent errors in employee timecards and paychecks.
With Multi-Level Approval, several individuals within an organization -- employees, managers and payroll personnel -- can approve an employee's daily, pay period and labor-segment hours. That contrasts with only one approval level -- managers or payroll personnel, but not both -- common to other time and attendance systems. Besides preventing errors on employee timecards and paychecks, it also helps protect against employee claims of errors made by the company.
Multi-Level Approval is one of dozens of new capabilities in UNITIME Version 7.0, most of which resulted from suggestions from Unitime's 2,000-plus customers throughout North America North America, third largest continent (1990 est. pop. 365,000,000), c.9,400,000 sq mi (24,346,000 sq km), the northern of the two continents of the Western Hemisphere. .
"Version 7.0 is another milestone in the development of UNITIME," said Doug Peterman Pe´ter`man

A company using Multi-Level Approval can assign individuals to approve daily hours or segments of hours (labor segments) within each day. That reduces end-of-pay-period disputes and inaccuracies regarding hours worked days or weeks earlier.
Authorized personnel can approve the jobs on which an employee works throughout each day, thus ensuring accurate recording of employees' time in multiple departments or divisions. Multi-Level Approval also enables a supervisor to approve segments of time worked during the day by an employee from a different department, rather than leaving that task to the employee's departmental supervisor.
The organization can configure the highly flexible Multi-Level Approval feature to meet its specific requirements. "Multi-Level Approval recognizes that not all organizations are identical," said Peterman. "We've designed the product with the flexibility to ensure that it's the appropriate fit for any company's needs."
