timeFrank Services Agreement
timeFrank is a web based unique software as a service (“SaaS”) application designed and programmed by Cosyn Limited which uses Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform to serve and meet the needs of the Customer (defined hereinafter) when it comes to employee attendance and employee payroll management.
At Cosyn, We understand that at times, manual monitoring of attendance and payroll data processing and management might be lacking in feasibility and accuracy and the current available software might not serve Your needs to the desired capacity, thereby creating glitches in employee attendance monitoring and employee payroll data processing and management. In order to address such needs of the Customer, We introduce to You Our cloud based software “timeFrank” to serve the Customer’s twofold needs - , firstly, of capturing the employee attendance data and employee payroll data and secondly the storage and management of the data on a cloud based monitoring system to enable the Customer to easily access and effortlessly retrieve the data/information for any future use.
timeFrank is a simple and ready to use web based application which is hosted on the cloud on the Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform, through which the tracking of employee attendance and payroll data processing and management can be done by the authorized Admin by using the website www.timeFrank.com from any location on any mobile phone, or on computer web browsers. timeFrank application can be used in both Android and iOS devices to capture attendance and process and manage employee payroll data. The functionality of recording the attendance of each employee is available through four modes viz., face recognition, web punch-in, QR Code scan and a four (4) digit unique PIN (Personal Identification Number) to record the attendance of each employee.
The information/employee attendance data is captured in the timeFrank application which can then be converted to well organized formats for ease of use. The best part about timeFrank is that one can access the information of the attendance status on the cloud and then create, download attendance reports from anywhere. Processing of employee payroll data and payroll data management will be much easier with timeFrank.
