How the Cloud Can Help You Stay Compliant with Wage & Hour Laws
- nettime solutions staff
For many professionals, the phrase “cloud-based computing” has become synonymous with business-as-usual, and the promises that come with the cloud, such as rapid deployment, faster services, and greater connectivity, are baked into many modern work environments.
However, less than a decade ago, the concept of the cloud was still new and fairly novel for many businesses and organizations. In fact, mid-career professionals may remember “the old days” when software updates came from a local, in-house server, or happened manually from machine-to-machine with the help of the IT staff.
With the cloud came the promise of freedom, and the chance to connect with colleagues and collaborators safely and securely from anywhere at any time.
Part of the drive behind the development and adoption of cloud-based technologies was the desire to move beyond the wires that kept people locked to machines. And a decade ago, when some businesses were hearing about the cloud for the first time, nettime solutions was actually stationing the industry’s first time & attendance solution in the cloud.
We recognized that the need for rapid deployment and fast response was one of the most essential benefits of our services. As such, moving to the cloud would help us address some of our customers’ most pressing needs, from solving security issues, to fixing software bugs, to responding to new laws—something that’s always mattered to stratustime.
This is because compliance is everywhere.
We don’t think it’s possible to overstate how important it is for companies and organizations to stay compliant in every facet of their business. The need for compliance touches nearly everything, including:
- How businesses and non-profit organizations handle time sheets.
- Company benefits such as health insurance.
- How you track time for remote workers.
- Ever-changing wage and hour laws and regulations on the state and federal levels.
While features and functionality will always matter, stratustime also focuses on helping companies and organizations keep up with issues related to regulatory compliance. Our latest report, “What’s Really Different About stratustime” provides a deeper look into the steps we take behind the scenes to help make sure your people can clock in and out with confidence, while we keep an eye on the legislatures.
