11:40 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Situated within Bandar Saujana Putra, Selangor, BSP21 is the latest award-winning lifestyle serviced residence from LBS Bina. In BPS21, LBS Bina has dedicated a sizeable piece of its 21-acre land to more than 100 recreational facilities and amenities, including a 4-level clubhouse measuring 66000 square feet, exercise decks, various pools, gymnasium and court games for the sports enthusiast; to outdoor rock climbing wall and a skate park for the more adventurous. In addition, BPS21 has a 2.7km jogging and cycling track, and for those looking for a more relaxing time, it has various gardens and quiet corners landscaped to soothe the soul.

To further provide convenience to all BSP21 residents, especially during this covid episode, their management decided to subscribe to iNeighbour, the Property Management System, which helps handle visitor management, essential documents between the management and the residents, announcement, and facility bookings. iNeighbour limits the need for a face-to-face meeting between residents and management and instead take everything necessary to the App for a more practical operation. With iNeighbour App, residents can manage visitor bookings, download e-documents, submit them to management, and make facility bookings quickly and hassle-free, all with transaction records intact.

One of the features in iNeighbour that advantage the management is the ability to manage tenants effectively. For example, the system permits management to restrict defaulters from having the same privileges as the other tenants if due payments are not paid. But once all pending payments are settled by the tenants, all facilities as offered as usual.

On top of the default iNeighbour system, BSP21 also subscribes to another two systems to smoothen operation. One is a cloud accounting system, i-Account, and the second is a cloud security patrol system, TimeTec Patrol. i-Account is a cloud-accounting system specially tailored to property management, which updates everything as it happens, providing convenience to all parties when they can view the transactions in the system at all times. And another is TimeTec Patrol, a guard patrol system that tracks the guards on duty and provides them with a tool to communicate with the control room during patrol sessions for more effective patrol rounds. In short, the system provides all the needed patrol details for the management to assess and rectify patrol activities.

BSP21 is pushing the boundaries of technology when it comes to Property Management with its commitment to iNeighbour, all by having residents' convenience as its core.

Akademi Generasi Mukmin Taps on TimeTec GPS to Improve Staff Management

8:30 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Akademi Generasi Mukmin is a company that manages private education services emphasizing education characteristics based on monotheism. Run by trained and experienced instructors, the school's objective is to provide a pious atmosphere that builds the personality of the generation of believers through routine activities and educational culture based on Al-Quran and Sunnah of Rasulullah SAW. In addition, the school emphasizes manners education through the appreciation of moral verses.

The office of Akademi Generasi Mukmin has been equipped with FingerTec fingerprint model R2 to control authorized access and capture staff's time attendance. However, even though FingerTec R2 is a great tool to authenticate fingerprints and elevate the security at the office, the versatile time attendance system is still absent for the staff at the schools. Therefore, Akademi Generasi Mukmin subscribes to TimeTec cloud-based attendance system that can provide solutions to their predicaments.
TimeTec TA App that lets staff clock in via the App from their smartphones makes it easy for everybody and provides complete data to the management, accessible anytime from anywhere. With one tap on the GPS attendance on the App, the system captures the staff's time and GPS location and pushes the data to the cloud in real-time. TimeTec TA provides transparent data for both the staff and management, making it easier for the staff to report the whereabouts and the management to track the staff's availability and performance. The staff also can generate the attendance report from their mobile App as attendance proof.

In addition to that, data from TimeTec TA is integrable with their third-party payroll software and reduces the admin's workload to key in all the attendance data manually. Automation of attendance into payroll streamline payroll preparation effectively to the benefit of all involved.

Akademi Generasi Mukmin has found a great system in TimeTec TA to manage its staff attendance, regardless of the location of the schools. Furthermore, the scalability of TimeTec TA also helps the management to decide to subscribe to the system.

Verstaerker Rolle (M) Sdn Bhd Subscribes to TimeTec Cloud for Efficiency

7:00 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Verstaerker Rolle (M) Sdn Bhd, one of the leading suppliers of rubber rollers in Malaysia, has established itself since 1989. The company has two subsidiaries - Print-Roller Manufacturing (M) Sdn Bhd and Polythane Supplies (M) Sdn Bhd, focusing on different products to meet the vast and growing market demand. The company's main activity is the manufacture of natural and synthetic Rubber Rollers for use in various industries. With the business expansion, their workforce has also grown, and HR is looking for an effective system to streamline their staff attendance for better operation.

Though they have been using biometrics systems for their versatility and reliability, the manual pc-based version of the machine couldn't provide them with the efficiency they are looking for, as software upgrades usually ask for better RAM and an upgrade of the hardware. The company wishes for a system that doesn't require heavy hardware investment and constantly provides the updated software version at a minimal cost.

Hence, FingerTec and TimeTec are their systems of choice. The company decided to upgrade the biometrics devices from the FingerTec fingerprint model TA100C to the latest contactless FingerTec Face ID 5 that can be connected seamlessly to the cloud-based software, TimeTec TA. The PUSH technology available on biometrics devices enables data pushed to the TimeTec TA all the time and accessible anytime, from anywhere through any browser.

 
TimeTec TA is a cloud-based time attendance software that offers clocking of attendance through the App on smartphones and biometrics devices. All the staff needs to do is tap on the clocking method on the App, and the time data will be transmitted to the software in real-time, and the same applies to biometrics data. Furthermore, with all attendance data from all subsidiaries available on the same software, the company can access the data quickly and efficiently without worrying about the PC upgrades like before. On top of this, by subscribing to TimeTec TA, the company can upgrade to more cloud solutions like TimeTec Leave, TimeTec Claim, and more to embrace the cloud environment for their organization.
 
Furthermore, HR can access the data on TimeTec TA. However, the authorized management can also sneak a peek to see the overview of the staff's attendance and suggest any improvements for better operation. All in all, Verstaerker Rolle (M) Sdn Bhd is committed to the future of the company and the switch to cloud solution for HR is a step in the right direction by making things smooth and transparent.

If your company is looking for a no-fuss system that works efficiently on a great budget, contact our sales at info@timeteccloud.com or 03-80709933.

On the HR side, staff leave accruals are done automatically because TimeTec Leave provides systematic and accurate leave accruals based on rules set by the company initially, which saves the company and HR a lot of time and stress from this process at every end of the year.

One of the favourite features for Intralink is that the management and HR can access the complete leave records and reports from anywhere at any time, and all the data is up-to-date and accurate. For example, the data from TimeTec Leave can provide the company with an insight into its labour leave pattern, making it easier for the company to manage the staff during crunch periods throughout the year, especially during festive holidays.  

TimeTec Leave comes with a Web and an App at one price, and it helps staff leave management in more ways than you can imagine. So if your company is facing problems with employees' complicated leave management, let TimeTec helps you solve the problems seamlessly.

Citra Embun in Mantin Subscribes to iNeighbour

6:18 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Citra Embun is a Freehold Strata Townvilla located at Taman Bukit Citra, Mantin, Negeri Sembilan, developed by Seri Pajam Development Sdn. Bhd. The residential offers five blocks of 3 & 5 storey buildings with a built-up size of approximately 956 - 1,317 sq. ft in size, and all 320 units come with three bedrooms.

Citra Embun is equipped with excellent facilities such as yoga alcove, giant chess, hopping lawn, sculpture seating, BBQ pit, gazebo, eco gym and four concept parks consisting of into the woods, the terrace, hanging garden and Edu-ture lane for a better lifestyle and environment.

This residential area is located near amenities such as shopping malls, well connected by Lekas Highway Nilai/Pajam toll, North-South Highway, and nearby KLIA.


To bring Citra Embun management to another level, they subscribe to the iNeighbour Smart Community App. The App has been proven to ease visitor management and visitor parking issues excellently because residents can pre register their visitors before the visitation date, complete with a QR code for easy access. In addition, security guards can access the information to ease visitor handling. Furthermore, the residents can view their visitor information on the App, and they can take control of who can visit their unit at all times. Apart from that, the management can disseminate announcements to residents quickly via the App, and residents can give feedback through the same App to the management for any issues they face. All in all, iNeighbour provides a better communication tool for both parties to exchange information timely and efficiently.

As of late, the pandemic has posed a more significant challenge for the management to handle highrise residentials, and iNeighbour provides the perfect contactless practical instrument to cater to the situation. For example, the facility booking in iNeighbour provides access to those who have been given permission only, and other people cannot enter those facilities. Hence, the shared facilities become more manageable during the pandemic, like the swimming pool, gymnasium, and more.

iNeighbour Smart Community App satisfies Citra Embun management, and now they are looking to apply the system to their other projects in town.

P&A Smart Solution Adopts Workforce Digitalization with TimeTec

2:00 AM TimeTec 0 Comments


P&A Smart Solution Sdn Bhd is a finance and accounting firm established 23 years ago with a clear vision of achieving excellence. Starting with one established client, Standard Chartered Bank in Wangsa Maju, the company has grown with a string of clients who they supported through many credit recovery challenges for over two decades. Headquartered at Wisma P&A in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, the company has expanded from four to 320 staff and counting.  

As the company progresses, HR is now ready to explore digitalization to streamline workforce management and achieve efficiency in operation.

Previously, the company used biometrics door access devices for two purposes, access control and door attendance. While the verification of biometrics devices is second to none, its data collection is another matter. HR found it tedious when they had to use USB to collect data every day, and recently, work-from-home (WFH) had posed a new challenge to HR in tracking attendance. They had explored Google form to manage the WFH, but they found many costly loopholes they couldn't afford.

By switching to FingerTec biometrics and TimeTec TA, P&A Smart Solutions managers can easily track their staff attendance and accurately calculate their staff mileage claim using the distance calculator feature. In addition, staff who WFH can report their duty through the mobile app, and those at the site can report their work effectively from each location complete with GPS data. Not only that the TimeTec TA offers convenience to the staff, but it also provides a perfect tool for the management to obtain accurate data in real-time for monitoring to achieve better operation.

P&A Smart Solution also explores cloud-based leave management with TimeTec Leave to abolish the ineffective manual form they had used for years. With TimeTec Leave, staff can now apply for leave through a mobile app, and managers can do approval the same way. Leave data becomes transparent to everybody, and it increases staff's satisfaction and engagement to another level. Every time a staff's leave application is approved, the system calculates the leave balance instantly and updates the app. TimeTec Leave also automates the whole process and eliminates the key-in process to payroll once and for all. Now with TimeTec Leave, it is easier for HR to automate company leave policies such as service accruals, prorated leave and other rules besides having the past years' data intact in the system at all times.

The switch to the TimeTec system has provided P&A Smart Solution with a modern and practical way of managing its growing workforce to prepare for a more data-driven future to come.

If you wish to digitalize your workforce management as P&A Smart Solution does, our team is ready to provide you with a FREE consultation today.

TimeTec Smart Parking 12/12: Integrated Parking Guidance System

11:45 PM TimeTec 0 Comments

 


Most of the modern city dwellers are experiencing the time-waste searching for parking space. According to Boston Consulting Group (BCG) research, people in Kuala Lumpur spend 25 minutes every day searching for a parking spot. It usually happens at bustling malls. It is even more frustrating when a patron circles the entire parking site and finally finds a “prey” to see it being snatched away by a quicker “predator”. To solve the problem, TimeTec encourages car park owners to consider adopting a parking guidance system.

“TimeTec offers two types of Parking Guidance System, the first is Video Parking Guidance System, which deploys License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology; the second is Ultrasonic Parking Guidance System, which uses Ultrasonic wave technology. Both are meant to guide users to park their cars effortlessly; hence effectively reduce the search time for parking, increase the parking utilization rate and mitigate congestion,” explained Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group.   

“Since the Video Parking Guidance System is using LPR, it’s natural to be using LPR as the main parking entry and exit method if a carpark owner chooses this guidance system. On the other hand, for Ultrasonic Parking Guidance System, the carpark owner can choose various parking entry and exit methods including the LPR.”

Both Guidance Systems can work standalone, and they can also fully integrate with the TimeTec Smart Parking Management System to provide better feature extension.

The comparison between the two parking guidance systems:



Video Parking Guidance 

Ultrasonic Parking Guidance 

1

Deploy LPR technology 

Deploy Ultrasonic Wave Technology 

2

With Find My Car feature 

Without Find My Car capability 

3

Cover 1-6 carpark bays

One detector for each carpark bay

4

Up to 7 colours for indicator lights

Two colours for indicator lights 

5

LPR Camera for surveillance 

Not using any camera

6

Use LPR as entry & exit for seamless parking experience 

More entry & exit method options  

7

Investment cost higher

Investment cost lower 


Teh Hon Seng said, “The Video Parking Guidance System has an extra advantage to solve the shared-carpark environment issue to discern the parking income for different business entities. For example, when a shopping mall is sharing the same parking site with a hotel, users can come in from the hotel’s parking entrance but park at the shopping mall’s parking lots and leave via the shopping mall’s exit, and vice versa. As a result, they have difficulty splitting the parking income. But because the Video Parking Guidance System embedded License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology, it can identify where a vehicle parks regardless of its entry and exit points. Moreover, with the ownership of parking bays clearly defined in the TimeTec Smart Parking Management System, the parking income is tabulated without any mistake.”

“Furthermore, shopping malls can also integrate their mall apps to the Parking Guidance System to extend the Parking Bay Availability Check and Find My Car features to the user’s smartphones.”  

The benefits of the TimeTec Integrated Video Parking Guidance System are summarized as follow:

TimeTec Smart Parking 11/12: Cashless, Touchless to Automation

11:40 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


“In the third article of the TimeTec Smart Parking series (3 of 12) on Malaysiakini, we've discussed the Past, Present & Future of parking system, where we foresee the possible demise of parking system in the next twenty to thirty years when the roads were mostly taken over by autonomous cars and e-hailing services.” Teh Hon Seng, TimeTec Group CEO, explains the future of the parking industry.

“Even when the prediction is correct, the incessant technology advancement will still keep on improving, renewing and refining the parking system before that.”  


 
“Undoubtedly, the growth of e-hailing companies such as Uber, Lyft, Didi, Grab, etc., will largely impact the parking industry because users will not require any parking space at the intended destination, besides the options of other public transport systems. But statistics still show that in America alone, there are 500 million parking spaces for 326 million citizens spread across 3.5 million square miles of parking infrastructure. More parking spaces than the population are not because some car owners own more than one car, but mainly because cars require more parking spaces when transporting people from one place to another.”

 
An estimated 30 percent of traffic congestion each year is contributed by drivers searching for one of these parking spots. According to Boston Consulting Group (BCG) research, people in Kuala Lumpur spend 25 minutes every day searching for parking. Another problem is, for a city where people and vehicles congregated, the land is expensive. It seems like the carpark is still that necessary evil that would be stretched for another one to two decades.

Teh Hon Seng said, “Parking technology is transforming the ticket and cash system to ticketless, cashless and touchless system. The future development inevitably will focus on reducing the time to look for parking spots and efficiently managing the parking sites to optimize utilization. In short, towards an automated smart parking direction. As one of the pioneers in developing the smart parking system, TimeTec will continue the efforts towards the same direction.”   



Imagine a future that combines an automated valet parking system where you can step out of your car in front of a shopping mall with a single App, communicate the car with the parking site and the digital building system to allow your car to quickly find a parking space, via the easiest route and park on its own. Research in 2018 by University of Toronto researchers found that automated technology could increase the capacity of parking sites by 62 percent. Mercedes-Benz and Bosch even have a trial smart parking program in the works in Stuttgart, Germany. Here is the full demo for the automated valet parking video:
 


The digital transformation for parking solutions is an ongoing process to establish more connectivity, better efficiency and smarter sustainability. For parking owners, it’s time to think beyond the parking system.

TimeTec Smart Parking 10/12: Cashless Valet Parking

11:33 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


There is a famous valet parking joke based on a true story in the 60s, and it goes like this, "One night Frank Sinatra, the singer, walked out of The Peninsula Hotel and asked a valet parking attendant, 'What was the biggest tip you ever got?' When he said, '$100, Mr Sinatra,' the singer handed him $200 and then asked, 'Who gave you the $100 tip?' The attendant replied, 'It was you, Mr Sinatra.'"

Amazingly, some valet attendants do not only know their clients in person, but they are also well-trained and knowledgeable about nearly every make and model of vehicles, including the alarm systems and keyless ignitions, if not more.

"For parking business owner, valet parking is offered as an extra parking service or a separate entity to customers due to the skills set needed in valet attendants. Still, valet parking is treated as a non-core parking business compared to normal casual and season parking, and its parking module is never the main core module in a parking management system. Even though most parking sites are not offering valet services, for some hotels, nightclubs, hospitals, and shopping malls, valet parking is a compulsory service because valet parking adds a touch of luxury and convenience to car owners. What kind of a 5-star hotel does not provide valet parking service?" asked Teh Hon Seng, TimeTec Group CEO.

 
"In general, valet parking provides convenience and class. Patrons don't have to drive around looking for parking spots. Those who are in a hurry can leave their vehicles safely in the hands of the valet attendants; plus, it is handy for disabled drivers, and those who own luxury cars would want to arrive in style everywhere they go."

"In short, valet is a service created by inequalities of supply and demand.  Valet offers an extra service for vehicle owners to park their cars safely, conveniently and instantly, and sometimes with style," said Teh.

Teh also stressed that valet parking is one of the TimeTec Smart Parking System modules to help valet parking owner eliminate the cash handling risk and be in line with the cashless trend. The operators that cover complete parking services can consolidate the parking revenues from casual, season, enforcement, and valet, all under one cloud platform.

TimeTec Valet Parking System comes together with two handheld TimeTec Valet POS terminals,  with a built-in receipt printer that is PCI DSS compliance and accepting credit and debit card and e-Wallet cashless payment methods. In addition, bringing more convenience to customers, the receipt printer of TimeTec Valet Parking System also prints a QR code as an option for customers to scan and pay for the valet before picking up their car. The illustration below shows the process flow:


TimeTec Valet improves the daily operation efficiency of the business owner and provides payment convenience to the customers.

TimeTec Smart Parking 9/12: Cashless Parking Payment

11:31 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


When the parking system started to move from cash to cashless, what are the significant differences besides the absence of physical currency? To be precise, the cash payment form is loosely attached to the parking system; the relationship is just in its tallying process. The complication of cash handling happens outside the parking system. After manually tallying the cash with the system, the off-system cash handling includes the risk of temporarily keeping the cash and transporting it to the bank by trusted personnel. Overall, it is a tedious daily routine.

In contrast, in a cashless system, the complication happens inside the system, where there is almost no “handling” job required for the cashless money after the system collects the fees. Instead, there are settlements between the bank/payment gateway provider and the parking owner/operator behind the scene, with the terms and conditions signed before adopting the cashless system.


TimeTec Group CEO Teh Hon Seng elaborated further on the complexity of cashless in parking systems, “Indeed, more security concerns when moving cash to a cashless system. The pivotal issues like protecting the electronic transaction data such as credit cards and mobile data between participating parties and avoiding the violation of personal data have to be addressed. The good thing is that all the related matters are taken care of in the highly regulated online payment system. For example, the use of credit cards in parking as cashless payment, it required The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS compliance for its parking terminals.”



Teh Hon Seng explained the differences between cashless parking system and cashless merchant system, “It is far more complicated for a parking system to accommodate cashless payment than the normal merchant system. For example, the e-Wallet providers can go all out to acquire merchants. However, they can’t simply knock on the parking operators’ door and sign them up as merchants because the e-wallet must be seamlessly integrated with the parking access system. Besides, the parking transaction is not as simple as picking up merchandise and paying it according to the price tag when checking out.  The date and time of a car entering a parking site have to be recorded, and the fee calculation is based on the duration and parking rate set by the parking owner when checking out. Furthermore, when the customers check in, the system has to verify the validity of the payment card and whether it has sufficient funds to pay when he/she checks out. That explains why the parking operator is charged a slightly higher MDR (Merchant Discount Rate) than normal merchants.”

The parking access cum cashless payment system flow is illustrated in the following diagram:


Touch ‘n Go card is one of its kind for parking payment systems. The payment process flow is almost similar to the credit/debit card, and it is more widely used than credit/debit card in Malaysia’s parking industry.

The main advantage of the above cashless payment system embedded into the parking access system is that there is no payment process between entry and exit.  

When the License Plate Recognition or LPR is used as a parking access method, the cashless payment system is less attached. The common practice now is that the back-end parking system will link to an online payment portal consolidated with multiple payment methods. The customer can choose which payment method he/she prefers before exiting the parking site.

Teh Hon Seng said, “As one of the pioneers that provide cashless parking solutions, TimeTec Smart Parking System caters to all the above. Besides providing the unattended parking kiosk that combines Touch ‘n Go solution, credit/debit reader and QR code reader for e-Wallet into one kiosk, we are also an expert in LPR parking solution, and its payment system.”
