SANDY, Utah, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Qqest announced today that it has increased its capacity to support the time and attendance and scheduling needs of the mid and large business customer. The company has hired new account managers with deep experience in the enterprise market with additional office locations in Eastern, Southern, Midwest and Pacific regions, and will continue to expand in other key markets.

Qqest also recently announced a strategic partnership with Atlas Business Solutions, a leading provider of scheduling software, which will address the full range of complex scheduling needs many enterprise organizations have.

"Over the years, we have served enterprise customers well with our TimeForce time and attendance product," said Johann Smit, director of Qqest's Enterprise Division. "With this initiative, we are taking the expertise gained over that time, and raising our ability to satisfy their time and attendance and scheduling needs even further. Between the new technology and the new people, Qqest is positioned to experience tremendous growth in this sector."

Enterprise Customers Speak

Qqest already serves hundreds of enterprise customers with 500 to 15,000 employees in a variety of industries.

Alta California Regional Center is part of a network of 21 regional centers in California that serve 17,000 people with development disabilities and their families in a 10 county area each year. As a non-profit health care organization, Alta Regional needed a time and attendance system that was both cost-effective and could accommodate the organization's complex scheduling needs. "I'm glad we chose TimeForce, and I'd definitely recommend it to others," said Peter Tiedemann, Alta Regional's chief operating officer.

Peoria County in Illinois provides a range of services to its almost 185,000 residents -- from health, aging and family mediation services, to libraries, courts and clinics. Employees are spread over 31 departments, 10 locations, and 17 different pay groups, which require a larger number of codes to track. According to Business Operations Manager Tom Seckler, "TimeForce is a fantastic system -- exactly what we needed."

Tri-B Nursery spans 450 acres of perennials, trees and shrubs in Oklahoma. On any given day, the company's employees may work in multiple areas across the nursery, starting their shift in one location and finishing in another. "After using TimeForce for just one year, we saw over $300,000 in savings," said Chief Financial Officer Dave Watt. "TimeForce has been able to adapt to our unique challenges, while at the same time, giving us a level of control over payroll we hadn't been able to achieve before. It's the best solution for the way we work."

"This is an exciting time for Qqest," continued Smit. "We look forward to continuing to build our team, and helping even more companies realize the tremendous benefits of automating their key business processes."
