TimeIPS Divisions are designed for companies that own, operate, or provide staff to independent business units.
Each Division module allows for the creation of an additional sub-company where virtually all the operations in TimeIPS are available, but the lists of employees, jobs, departments, etc. are totally separate.
The TimeIPS Division module provides the following features:
- Each module provides a license for one additional TimeIPS division.
- Additional modules can be purchased for large installations with many divisions.
- Each division provides complete separation for employees, time worked, overtime rules, schedules, jobs, work-orders, departments, sites, clocks, etc.
- Each division can use site-based functionality such as memberships, coverage and restrictions. Additional site licenses can be purchased and used in divisions, if needed.
- Each clock can be assigned to a division and/or site belonging to the division, so that only employees belonging to the division can use the clock.
- When used with telephone clocking, each telephone clocking unit can be assigned to a site of a division, so that only employees belonging to the division can use the phone number.
- When used with remote clocking, a separate access URL can be provided for each division, and only employees belonging to the division can use the URL.
- Employees in a division can be payroll or employee administrators, and can run payroll and reports, but only for employees belonging to the division.
- Critical system settings (like network addresses and master configuration options) are only available to system administrators belonging to the master division.
- Each division can be assigned one or more managers. When used with the IPSPRM permissions module, the role of the division manager can be completely customized.
- Division managers can receive email alerts when new employees are added to a division.
- Note: Because divisions are made for separate business units, employee transfers between divisions are treated as a lay-off from one division and a hire into another.
Time worked, benefits earned, payroll processed, etc. for one division never carries over to a different division.
Note: Requires TimeIPS version 1.8.82 or later.
