How Smart Antenna Tech Simplified Payroll and Increased Accuracy

Key Takeaways:

For this case study, we decided to go with a different format. Instead of a detailed synopsis of how a certain business has used Connecteam to streamline their operations, we decided to opt for a more casual Q&A session. Hopefully, you’ll find it useful as you’re looking to simplify your payroll and increase accuracy at your company.

Our first Q&A is with Ian Ormerod, QA Manager of Smart Antenna Technologies. Smart Antenna Technologies (SAT) is a private spinout company founded by CTO Sampson Hu in 2013. SAT has designed, developed, and patented a pioneering smart antenna technology that provides an efficient and low-cost antenna solution for the mobile device and infrastructure market. Target markets include smartphone, tablet, laptop but the technology can also be applied to expanding markets including SmartTV, Connected Car, Small Cell, and IoT/M2M.

To put it more plainly, whether you’re on the go or at home, SAT empowers your connected devices (like smartphones or smart TVs for that matter) with continuous connectivity.

“We have been very pleased with Connecteam and are looking forward to using more of the functions as the company grows.”

Let’s jump right into the Q&A with SAT:

Q: What made you decide to start using Connecteam?

A: Our company is involved in Research and Design and in order to measure costs on the different projects, we tried several time management software packages before selecting Connecteam and its time clock.

Q: Are you required to comply with timekeeping regulations?

A: Yes. in fact, many of our scientists are not EU residents and we have to allocate payroll differently among our workforce. This was a challenge for us until using Connecteam.

Q: How was your initial experience using Connecteam and how has your ongoing experience been?

A: We have been very pleased with Connecteam and are looking forward to using more of the functions as the company grows.

Q: What would you say has been Connecteam’s greatest strength and greatest weakness?

A: The greatest strength has been the communication and a willingness to listen to what our requirements are and make changes to our setup even though we are not yet using the growth version. We have not found a weakness so far but will keep trying to find one!
