Upgrading from a Single Computer to Network Time Clock

Business growth is usually a good thing, and it's nice to have a time and attendance system that can expand with your business. If you're using the Basic or Pro Edition of Virtual TimeClock, then you already know it's designed to provide a great single computer time clock. The Network Edition allows you to deploy network time clock stations at strategic locations within your organization, or even turn the computer of every staff member into a personal time clock. This is especially useful if you want to start job tracking, improve office communication with the built-in messaging module, or replace that old in/out whiteboard with real time tracking of who's in and who's out.

The Pro Edition and Network Edition have the same database structure, so upgrading to the Network Edition is as simple as making a backup of your database, installing the Virtual TimeClock Server software, and restoring your database. If you're upgrading from the Basic Edition, then the Virtual TimeClock Server will automatically convert your database when you restore your Basic Edition backup file. We've made it pretty easy to scale your employee time clock software to the needs of your business.
