AWM360* Data Systems, a local business technology partner, has supplied its client with a solution based on SAP software and Kaba server technology and hardware to address a requirement for enhanced SAP-certified integrated time and attendance and access control, nationally.
The client is the multinational domestic operation forming part of the group’s international business, focused on unique systems competence in the combustion engine and engine peripherals. The Company has presence in Durban and Port Elizabeth and has a staff compliment of approximately 2000 employees.
In line with the global holding company’s strategy regarding its workforce management needs, the client looked to the market and a potential partner to provide a scalable solution with hardware that would suit its production environment and its overall global procurement policy in this regard.
Following a thorough consultation process, AWM360* Data Systems supplied Kaba’s B-Web series terminals with biometric readers for time recording.
