Time Clock MTS Version 2.5.10 Released
I released a new version of Time Clock MTS yesterday containing a bug fix and adding a new feature requested by one of our users. The detailed punchcard report was broken in version 2.5.9, by of all things, me fixing up a spelling error! This is now been sorted properly.
The new feature added allows you to use the keyboard shortcuts ALT-I and ALT-O to clock in and out from the employee list interface. ALT-I will clock you in and ALT-O will clock out. If you're already clocked in then ALT-I will not do anything, and similarly with ALT-O if you're already clocked out. These changes were requested by a visually impaired user who was trying to use the software with the JAWS screen reading software. The trouble is that the Clock In and Clock Out buttons on the Employee Interface screen cannot be accessed by using your TAB key. These new keyboard short-cuts ensure that the software will function happily for those using screen reading software.

Time Clock MTS on the Kim Kommando Show
Time Clock MTS has featured on the Kim Komando show, a popular radio program that concentrates on computers, the internet, and consumer electronics. It run on over 400 radio stations in the United States and at peak times garners well over 2 million viewers. A brief review of Time Clock MTS is up on the Kim Kommando website. As a consequence of this wonderful publicity (which I must say came as a complete surprise to me) traffic on this website was around 10 times the normal levels!
Welcome to all the potential new Time Clock MTS users who have come here after hearing about us on the Kim Komando show, please feel free to Contact Us if you have any questions or need help!

Time Clock MTS Version 2.5.9 Released
I've just released version 2.5.9 of Time Clock MTS which contains some bug fixes and a minor user interface improvement. Here's the details of what's changed:
- A fix for some users who were continually being told they were already logged in as the administrator even though they were not.
- To help users who cannot find their database file you can now press the D key on your keyboard within 5 seconds of starting up the admin software and a Windows Explorer window will popup showing the directory your database is in.
- A fix was applied to the department folder view, it wasn't displaying correctly if there were disabled employees.
- The last action message now clears after 5 seconds when using the keypad interface.
- Some people still experience problems when the software is left running for long periods and the database connection goes stale. I've included some new code to try to re-connect to the database if the connection is lost.
Apologies for the dearth of releases lately, our attention has been pretty much focussed on Online Time Clock MTS for most of this year. It's getting close to being released commercially and once that happens we'll start working hard on Version 3 of Time Clock MTS.

Another Time Clock MTS User has Nice Things to Say
Well there's a flood (can 3 different people constitute a flood?) of people who want to say nice things about Time Clock MTS today. Here's another one from the GM of a plastics manufacturing company.
I just wanted to thank your customer for the great job they do in supporting your product. Whenever I have questions they are quick to respond and their advice is right on target. Your website is easy to use and very instructive for any knowledge I may need on your product. (And the MTS Time Clock program is great too! I would recommend it to anyone.) Thanks for making my job easier.

A Time Clock MTS User Review
Donald Hill, a business consultant from Milwaukee, Wisconsin was kind enough to write some great comments about Time Clock MTS. He was also kind enough to allow me to reproduce those comments here. You can see them below.
After comparing your Timeclockmts employee time keeping solution with many other options, it was a no-brainer to go with your solution for my food service business client with 30 to 35 employees.
No server or XP professional required, free unlimited 30 day trial, secure full-featured administrator area, simple clock in and out window, easy to add and delete employees, and a leading biometric device vendor already pre-selected to work with the software.
After installing, the experience only got better. Discovered it can automatically record a webcam photo of the person clocking in and out for verification, easily allows the data file to be shared from either a desktop PC or a Network Attached Storage (NAS), and has all the reports needed to run payroll.
Install was fast and employees really did not need any training because of the simple user interface. Point, click, done. The ability to have multiple administrator licenses is a plus to allow more than one manager to access and update employee wage rates, departments, and hours.
As a 'recovering' electrical engineer and former software programmer, appreciate seeing good code. Now that I am in the (non-tech) business development consulting field, I also appreciate being able to find a solid and simple to use program for the small-business multi-user environment. Your online ordering calculator also takes the guesswork out of pricing which helped a lot.
Great job - I suspect this software will only get better in the future
