eCharge is our web-based data collection system that enables accurate real-time updates for job costing, Work In Process, and payroll systems. Data is validated upon entry for employee and work order information is collected through various types of data collection devices including PCs, and Web browsers.

The same devices can be used for Time and Attendance collection.

eCharge implementation greatly reduces overheads in gathering, processing and postings of labor, eliminates unaccounted attendance, and reduces discrepancies to a minimum.

eCharge utilizes our rules and knowledge based repository of information to encapsulate sophisticated business rules such as payroll computations. This allows for flexible definitions of work schedules including compressed weeks, graveyard shifts, and pro-ration of labor for a single operator working on multiple concurrent jobs. The accumulated labor is normalized and allocated to each overlapping job.
