Tongee Keeps the Workforce in Line with TimeTec TA

1:37 AM TimeTec 0 Comments


Tongee (KL) Sdn. Bhd. is the subsidiary of Tongee Group, the leading Market Expansion Services provider for organizations that aspire to grow their business in new or existing markets in Malaysia. The core activities of the Group are centred around sales and marketing of FMCG products with warehousing and logistic support. Tongee also has in-depth knowledge of supply-chain strategy from B2B-to-B2C, and it has more than 7000 affiliate partners in MALAYSIA.

Enduring the pandemic's impact on its operations, Tongee found a way to manage the workforce who are now scattered at homes, in the office, on the move, and on-site. Previously, everybody clocked in the biometrics system installed at the office before going about their daily business. However, the method is no longer relevant because the government only permits 40% of the workforce in the office during office hours. Therefore, Human Resources must figure out how to get everybody into a centralized system and have the attendance data integrated with the payroll system for seamless workforce management. They also require a system that can cater to overtime applications and approvals, making payroll processing smoother.

TimeTec TA, a cloud-based Time Attendance System, is the best choice for Tongee, and here are why: 




GPS clocking in TimeTec TA mobile app makes attendance recording easy for everybody, especially those working from home and on-site. All employees need to log into the App and tap on GPS clocking to record attendance. The system records the time along with the GPS whereabouts of the employee. Besides, it also supports photo attachment and remarks if the office needs more details or visual proofs. 








Attendance data is available in real-time. As soon as the employee clocks, data is instantly recorded in the server, accessible to the supervisor/management for monitoring and processing.









TimeTec provides a convenient tool for OT Application/ Approval via App. Staff can apply overtime through the App; the approval process also goes through the same process for fast and efficient operation. The company can quickly mitigate discrepancies found in OT data, complete with audit trails for better transparency.








TimeTec TA software data is integrable with third-party payroll software. Currently, TimeTec TA has been readily integrated with various leading payroll providers in Malaysia. Once subscribed with TimeTec TA, the company only needs to link up the attendance data to the payroll system of choice for salary processing. 






TimeTec TA provides complete attendance records and reports for human resource and management use. These records and reports are accessible and can be generated instantly, at any time of the day, anywhere. 








In great tribulation comes a great solution, and clearly, TimeTec TA has brought about tremendous efficiency to Tongee's operation, which is beneficial for the long run. Contact us for more information about the solution!

Diyou Fibre Patrols Buildings Using TimeTec Patrol

12:00 AM TimeTec 0 Comments


More than twenty years ago, Diyou Fibre started producing recycled materials from post-consumer plastics. They have changed and grown over the years, and so has plastics. 

Their principal activities are recycling different post-consumer plastics, including PET bottles, HDPE bottles, LDPE films, PP products, and others, into sustainable materials for recycled polyester, construction materials, automotive materials, and other industries.

Diyou Fibre has three main buildings, and all the guards are patrolling using the old system. There is no real-time data with the conventional system, and they can only collect the data at the site when the guards return to base. With the system's loopholes, the guards can manipulate the data because the management doesn't have a way to find it out, and it is hard to keep track of the previous data and reports. The conventional system also poses a problem to the guards where they cannot report all the incidents directly to the supervisor. Instead, they need to contact the supervisor and update all the details manually.

With so many problems and inefficiency of the old system, Diyou Fibre subscribes to TimeTec Patrol to experience the competence of cloud patrol solutions first-hand. 




TimeTec Patrol provides a user-friendly system that is accessible anytime from any web browser at www.timetecpatrol.com.






TimeTec Patrol data is real-time. All the latest transactions will be pushed to the cloud/server directly for fast reporting and action. 







Guards can report all incidents via the App, and all the reports are stored securely, accessible by the management anytime.







All audit trails are available online, making this system transparent, a win-win system for the guards and the company. 




Diyou Fibre knows what it takes to produce efficiency, and they choose TimeTec Patrol for the patrolling system. Where time is an essence, and real-time reporting is gold, Diyou Fibre has taken a step forward with the TimeTec Patrol system. 

Interested in exploring cloud-based Patrol Solution, we can help.
Contact Mr. Sulaiman.

Palazio Serviced Apartment Embraces Smart Living with iNeighbour

8:30 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Palazio Serviced Apartment is a new highrise located in Mount Austin, located just 13 km from the city centre, Johor Bahru, Malaysia. This apartment houses 1832 units, complete with free WiFi, a garden with an outdoor swimming pool, lake views, a fitness room and a sauna. Completed just seven years ago in 2014, Palazio welcomes residents and occasional rentals, such as visitors coming from the north of the country and the neighbouring country, Singapore. 

The management was using logbooks to record the visitors' comings and goings and have experienced the inefficiency that comes along. Hence, in 2021, they decided to adopt a smart system to uplift the lifestyle for the whole community; out with the logbook, in with the iNeighbour App on everyone's smartphones. 

By subscribing to iNeighbour, the management can handle daily operations like managing visitors, feedback, inquiries, announcements and many more through one centralized system. 


Now the residents can invite, preregister and manage their visitors straight from the iNeighbour App. Moreover, all the visitor details are recorded in the system for reference, providing a sense of security for everybody. This App is also helpful as an 'intercom' for security to call the residents whenever the guests arrive. 

iNeighbour App also provides the residents with a convenient tool to channel their feedback, complaints or inquiries to the management. They do not need to go to the management office anymore, and they will receive the responses through the same channel in no time. Residents can also receive announcements instantly on the App for any pressing matters about their residence.  

By changing the old system to the modern one, Palazio Serviced Apartment brings the image of the residence to another level of sophistication at a very reasonable cost.  

If your residence needs an upgrade in the system,
you can consult iNeighbour team at

Digital Building Ecosystem (13 of 13): Efficiency with TimeTec Workforce Management System

1:09 AM TimeTec 0 Comments


“I recalled two years ago my sales manager told me when he approached a business owner of a property management company in Johor to promote iNeighbour smart community system for residential properties, and he also briefly touched on our cloud-based time attendance system which can be used to monitor mobile staff, the business owner turned to him and said, ‘It's been a headache for us in managing the attendance of my cleaners and other remote staff for years, this is what I want, and I want it immediately, iNeighbour is interesting, but it can come later.’ And he insisted on implementing it the following week, which was a few days before Chinese New Year.” 

“And two months after, he happily told us, two of his staff resigned. My sales manager asked why, he said that our system had exposed their tardiness, they no longer can cover-up.” Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group told a story on how TimeTec Workforce Management System can help in managing staff, especially in the property management industry.


“To upkeep a building, a facility management company has to hire a team of highly efficient workforce to provide services such as integrated facilities management, hospitality and cleaning services, facility operation & maintenance, and even carry out facility audit, hence workforce management system is important.”

“Quite some property or facility management companies subscribed to TimeTec Workforce Management System to manage their mobile workforce that is dispatched to different designated buildings under their portfolio for the daily chores. The employees’ attendance clocking that can prove to the JMB or Joint Management Body either by using a biometric clocking reader that can push clocking data to the cloud, or by clocking using a smartphone that captures GPS location, and real-time to notify the supervisor or property manager.” 

Teh Hon Seng, Founder and CEO of TimeTec Group





“Sometimes, property management companies require a workforce management system that extends to access control by using a smartphone. For example, cleaners unlock a smart lock to access the facility room for cleaning jobs.” 







TimeTec Workforce Management Suite offers time and attendance, leave management and claim management, and for mobile staff, GPS clocking from one place to another automate the honest mileage claim process.   
     
Property management is just one of the industries that is suitable for using the TimeTec Workforce Management System to manage their staff or contract staff. In fact, we have customers from different industries like construction, logistics, manufacturing, retailers, restaurants, government sectors, chain stores, oil & gas, etc.

The discussions of TimeTec Workforce Management System have been published on Malaysiakini in 6 series from 24-2-2021 till 31-3-2021, readers may find the links here:

Digital Building Ecosystem (12 of 13): Monetization with i-Ad

11:55 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


To many people, property management is treated as a cost centre, lack of prospect, always run on a tight budget. The major income is generated from the monthly fixed rental and maintenance collection and the usage of facilities. The profit centre for property management, parking operation, may be outsourced to a third-party parking operator by the building owner, detached from the building management.

Lack of a new income stream is the key factor restricting the future development of the property management industry, especially when the pandemic hit, work from home became a new trend, the demand for office space is shrinking. 

The good news is, digital transformation technology provides an unprecedented opportunity for business owners to revitalize the industry via the convergence of technologies, consolidating all different functionalities. Parking, as one of the main components, is inseparable from the entire ecosystem. The new cashless and touchless parking technology further reduces the cost and complexity to run a parking site.

The gist of the digital building is to build connectivity between management and tenants, tenants' employees, visitors, merchants nearby, etc. via the Tenant App. When all kinds of activities and communications can be converged in a single App, it unlocks the potential of commerce, precisely phrased, Near Field Commerce, which is another shouldn’t-be-missed opportunity for the property management industry. And it was discussed on Malaysiakini's Digital Building series 6 of 13 published on 5th May 2021, Digital Building Ecosystem (6/13): Near Field Commerce, The Coming Trend

Advertisement is the twin brother of Near Field Commerce. With the tenant app that reaches the vast tenants and their employees, digital ads, either in the form of notification, message, banner and pop up, are all possible; and electronic ads on the digital display screen, or physical at the lobby or digital display screen, lift, boom gate and parking island, which can be managed with a single admin platform. 


Teh Hon Seng, Founder and CEO of TimeTec Group
Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group, introduced the TimeTec i-Ad platform, said, “i-Ad is a cloud advertising platform that highlights your business’s advertisements on SaaS applications targeted at their respective users. i-Ad is a convenient widget that can fit on almost all SaaS applications including TimeTec Tenant App. Developers can easily plug i-Ad on their SaaS and generate incomes from displaying the advertisements. The income can either offset the Tenant App subscription fees or top up their profit in revenue.”

Teh added, “As for Digital Building Ecosystem, i-Merchants is the sub-app of TimeTec Tenant App that allows merchants to promote and sell their products/services to the surrounding communities. Through Tenant App, tenants of a community can view and search for services such as restaurants, laundry stores, convenient stores, etc from i-Merchants based on their location around their community.”  

"i-Ad is an advertising platform that allows merchants to boost their services and promotion on TimeTec Tenant App targeted at their respective users. When a merchant registers themselves at i-Ad, they will get a free account on i-Merchants. If the merchants of i-Merchants want to increase their visibility on TimeTec Tenant, they can advertise using i-Ad which targets the particular Tenant Apps users. Of course, the property manager has to make known of the i-Ad and i-Merchants services to the merchants nearby, and persuade them to onboard their Tenant App.”

Digital Building Ecosystem (11/13): Enhancing Surveillance Integration

11:18 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


“Let’s ponder two questions; for building management, you definitely have CCTV cameras installed at strategic places; the first question, is it a standalone system or integrated with third-party solutions to boost security? Second, who can view it? If it is local viewing directly from the DVR, NVR or servers, then we can conclude the integration with third-party solutions is very minimum or none at all.” Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group, discussed surveillance integration to enhance security in a digital building ecosystem.   

 
Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group





“Why do we need to confine the surveillance monitoring to just a few when it can be broadened to benefit the community for both commercial and residential buildings?”






Teh listed the following useful integrations for surveillance system:
1. Integration with intrusion detection alarm system, where customer can integrate video surveillance system with either wired or wireless security alarm system, often used in perimeter monitoring for residential communities.

2. Integration with Visitor Management System to track walk-in or drive-in visitors. 

3. Integration with Access Control System for common area access point monitoring, including facility room, etc.

4. Integration with Turnstile Barrier Access Control, as an added layer for better entry and exit control of tenants and visitors.

5. Integration with Audio Video Intercom System to replace the pricey conventional intercom system with the mobile app-based video intercom system at the tenant ends to improve security and automation. 

6. Integration with car park management system such as LPR or License Plate Recognition System for better automation or normal car park surveillance.

7. Other integrations like headcount or face recognition functionalities, etc. for various possible applications that are not limited to security. 

“The essence of digital transformation is breaking the walls between two or multiple professions, freeing the data flow from one activity to another. The same for video surveillance, but first thing first, for any future installation or upgrade, go for IP camera, rather than analogue. One good thing about the video surveillance industry, it has a global standard, ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) to ease the integration.” 

“Remote PC viewing, and especially mobile viewing is the trend. For example, unit owners or tenants may wish to receive a snapshot of their visitor, or residents at the different level may wish to have a live stream from the particular video installed at their lobby.”

“For TimeTec Digital Building Ecosystem, we have seamlessly integrated the IP cameras into an access control system, visitor management, tenant management, guard patrol system and parking management for both security surveillance and LPR, or License Plate Recognition, and all with comprehensive of rights of monitoring settings.” 

“And it’s time for the industry to explore the usage of video cameras especially video analytics and AI cameras in building management.”
