LIVONIA – The 22,000 employees of Cook County, Illinois, have an automated time and attendance system thanks to a Livonia company.
The Livonia-based workplace software developer WorkForce Software announced the countywide rollout of its WorkForce Time and Attendance software was complete in Cook County, modernizing timekeeping, increasing efficiencies and reducing costs.
The software replaces an antiquated system of paper timesheets. Employees will now instead use a combination of badge readers and biometric authentication to sign in and out every day. Those metrics are integrated in real-time with the county’s payroll system for precision in payroll calculations. Employees can use self-service tools to review their hours and pay statements electronically. By eliminating printed paystubs alone, the county expects to save $20,000 per year in paper and printing costs.
“Cook County is a perfect example of how we’re able to work with employers to address employee needs, streamline efficiencies and cut costs,” said Mike Morini, CEO of WorkForce Software. “As a result, customers like Cook County can achieve significant savings while putting their employees at the center with easy-to-use tools and greater transparency.”
