Listed on Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad, Cycle & Carriage Bintang Berhad ("CCB") and its Group is today one of the leading Mercedes-Benz dealers in Malaysia with a network of 12 outlets, providing high-quality sales and after-sales services for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Besides, the Group provides sales and after-sales services for FUSO trucks.

Cycle & Carriage Bintang Berhad recently has subscribed to TimeTec's Smart Attendance System, TimeTec TA, to kickstart digitalization in managing its growing workforce at 16 of its outlets nationwide.

Before subscribing to TimeTec TA, CCB has installed fingerprint devices for attendance, FingerTec TA100C, in all its outlets. However, staff attendance data can only be accessed by individual HR administrators and not accessible by other employees in the company. Each outlet also needed to install the attendance software that connects to the fingerprint devices to download the needed data.

While the arrangement worked for an individual outlet, the headquarters processes payrolls for all employees, and this requires each HR administrator in different locations to compile and submit the attendance reports every month-end to the HQ. The process of consolidating payroll data has proven to be time-consuming for the payroll team in the HQ to sort out reports every month. Inefficiency ensued when staff overtime hours needed to be recalculated and rectified several times in a month.

TimeTec TA smart time attendance solution offers centralization of data which the company wants. With TimeTec, all the existing biometric devices are connected and centralized into one single account. TimeTec TA is also accessible on the web without having to install any software on the PC. Not only that, but the staff also have access to their accounts to view their daily attendance details. Any discrepancies on the attendance data such as overtime miscalculation can be rectified immediately, saving payroll team a lot of time and inconvenience.

Cycle & Carriage Bintang Berhad now has found the solution for its payroll predicament, made easier by TimeTec TA. TimeTec TA scheduling is another useful feature where it can automate the calculation of working hours or overnight shifts for the company's workforce. Plus, with TimeTec TA, all their sales representatives that are working outside of the office can clock using the TimeTec TA App while they are on-the-go.
