AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asure Software (ASUR) , Inc. (Nasdaq:ASUR), a leading provider of workplace management software solutions, today announced that it has entered into a private label licensing agreement with FotoPunch, Inc . FotoPunch is a SaaS-based technology company that offers biometric and geospatial technology solutions to track employee time from virtually anywhere at anytime.
"We are very excited to be partnering with FotoPunch to offer mobile time and data collection solutions to our AsureForce" Time & Labor Management (TLM) clients," commented Pat Goepel , Asure's Chief Executive Officer. "This partnership is in complete alignment with our strategy to quickly bring to market innovative, cloud-based solutions that work when, where and how workforces are operating today. FotoPunch technology is the first of its kind in the time and labor management industry."
FotoPunch uses facial recognition and GPS software to allow employees to punch in and out using any mobile device, including smartphones, feature phones and dumbphones with a camera and SMS capabilities. When clients deploy this capability, they increase manager and employee productivity, reduce payroll costs, and avoid hardware costs. And users can access data without requiring Internet access, which is significant for highly mobile employees. The solution can also run through wall-mounted tablets in busy work areas.
From a workplace productivity perspective, managers have instant access to information via a web-based dashboard to track when and where employees are working, eliminate time fraud and stop buddy punching. FotoPunch also integrates with AsureForce TLM solutions and virtually any payroll solution.
"Our patent-pending technology will help expand Asure's solution portfolio, but more importantly, this one-of-a-kind mobile technology provides truly measureable benefits to clients," said Lance Ellsworth, Vice President of Business Development for FotoPunch.
