Use TimeMaster Summit to collect real time punch data. Ensure that employees are working the right hours in the right place – and are accurately compensated for their time.  Increase employee productivity by allowing employees to quickly track their time, request time off and communicate with management. 

Data Collection Methods

With multiple time collection methods, all employees can easily track their time. Use a combination of methods to collect data fast and accurately.

Collect employee time from a timeclock. Employees can easily clock in at a timeclock using their employee badge (barcode or proximity) using the keypad, or using biometrics (fingerprint authentication). In addition to clocking in, employees can transfer to different labor accounts, activity codes, display last punch and view total hours.

Simplify time and attendance by using mobile devices so you can quickly prepare time sheets for payroll processing. The TimeMaster Summit mobile app makes tracking time, requesting time off and running reports easy for employees. Quickly transform any device, phone, tablet or computer into a timeclock. The mobile app is supported on both iOS and Android devices.

Need employee self-service?  Employees may easily enter their hours in a spreadsheet format. They are also able to reallocate hours at the end of any time period to more accurately reflect their actual activities. This information will then be sent on to payroll or any other system of record.


Users can quickly manage employee time sheets using filters and shortcuts, making it easy to address time sheets with exceptions and review hours worked.

Configurable Rules Engine There may be differences in policies among various departments within your organization. Our centralized policy management helps to accurately and consistently apply pay rules to the right group of employees.  Example Pay Rules:
Overtime – Daily, Weekly, Pay Period, Consecutive Day, Multi-Day, Weighted Average
Breaks & Meal Deductions
Shift Differentials
Job Differentials
Holidays Worked

Scheduling TimeMaster Summit provides the ability to create multi-week rotating schedules that can be assigned to groups or individual employees. Utilizing the schedules will provide detailed insight into employee absences and allows you to quickly spot negative trends before they affect productivity.   Need advanced scheduling?  We have an optional Advanced Scheduling module.

Alerts & Reminders Never miss unexpected overtime occurrences, late arrivals, Affordable Care Act (ACA) violations or record changes ever again. Receiving alerts and notifications prevents issues that could impact your organization negatively. Notification examples:
Approaching Overtime Limits
Missing Punches
Late Arrivals
Approaching ACA Limits
Record Changes


During and after payroll processing you will have full support in knowing your data has been archived, accessible in a full audit trail and have an extensive report library available.
