Catering Owner Saves Time and Money this Labor Day with Cloud-Based Time and Attendance System

ATLANTA, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chef and small business owner Kelvin Lewis used to keep track of his employees' time in his head. But when his catering business expanded, he needed a more reliable and accurate system.

After researching companies online, he chose Lathem's PayClock Online cloud-based time and attendance solution.

"It's made life so much easier," said Lewis of 2 Guys Caterers. "I can do payroll anytime, anywhere. Now I can go on vacation and not worry because all the information is stored online, in the cloud, not in my head."

Lewis said he was able to set up the system easily, although the product comes with live customer support as part of Lathem's 6-Point Assurance Program™.

2 Guys Caterers has three employees who use the system daily and often as many as 20 contractors who work onsite as servers and bartenders. Those in the office clock in on a computer, while on-site workers clock in and out with a mobile smartphone.

Prior to using Lathem's PayClock Online, Lewis calculated time manually, which is prone to errors and can take hours. Now, he manages payroll when he wants and it only takes a few minutes.

"We're pleased that 2 Guys Caterers can be more productive and improve their bottom line with PayClock Online," said Lance Whipple, Lathem vice president, Sales and Marketing. "The market demands technology that meets the reality of today's flexible and remote workforce. This solution simplifies time and attendance and saves businesses time and money."
