FasTime(R) telephone timesheet collection service for integration with
PeopleSoft(R) Time and Labor 8.8. FasTime extends the benefits of
PeopleSoft Time and Labor 8.8 by providing universal access for
employees to submit timesheets electronically. The new combination of
Web and telephone time entry options allows companies to completely
eliminate paper time cards.
Virtually any time reporting process can be handled over the

Late and missing time cards and data entry errors are a thing of the
past with this telephony integration. All timesheet data collected by
FasTime is transmitted back to PeopleSoft Time and Labor 8.8.
"We are delighted to extend access to PeopleSoft Time and Labor
8.8 via the FasTime telephone solution because it provides added

the rewards and efficiencies of automation. The addition of the

FasTime(R) is a leading electronic timesheet collection and
approval service. It provides user-friendly, toll-free telephone
access for entering time. Two of the many time collection applications
that can be input via the telephone are elapsed and punch time. The
FasTime application mirrors a company's existing employee timesheets.
It also does the calculations, figures the week ending dates, and can
validate and confirm entries made by employees. The FasTime Service is
able to work with most HR information and payroll systems by using a
unique, patent-pending information exchange system. A simple exchange
of two files via industry-standard File Transfer Protocol (FTP) allows
FasTime to provide time capture, approval and reporting. All this can
be integrated with PeopleSoft Time and Labor 8.8. FasTime telephone
time entry is accurate, quick and easy to use.
