Snapping Shoals EMC Increases Payroll Processing Accuracy



Project Background
The Snapping Shoals Electric Membership Corporation (SSEMC), a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, is a non-profit, consumer-owned cooperative headquartered in Covington, Georgia. SSEMC provides electric service to about 74,000 residential, commercial and industrial consumers in an eight county area southeast of Atlanta. With over 200 employees working in eight different counties, processing payroll was a time consuming job for Vicki Moon, SSEMC’s Payroll Manager. Snapping Shoals started searching for an affordable system that would replace their existing legacy system. “We were looking for a web-based time entry system that would allow all of our employees to enter their time,” remarked Louise Blackman, Manager of Information Systems. Personnel issues dictated that the system must be easy to use; integrate to their new NISC iVUE Financial & Work Order system; and utilize standard databases. After carefully reviewing multiple systems, Snapping Shoals chose PowerTime, a 100% web-based timesheet system. “PowerTime fit our database needs by utilizing Microsoft SQL Server as an option for the database,” stated Blackman.

Labor Distribution Module
“Most of our decision related to our requirement to have employees enter their time using Quick Numbers that spread to multiple GL accounts,” commented Blackman. The PowerTime Labor Distribution Module gave SSEMC the ability to create charges (Quick Numbers) that are automatically distributed to several different General Ledger accounts. This reduces the employee entry time and ensures that payroll is accurately processed. “We liked the idea of a standalone time entry system vs. having employees work in the actual payroll processing system. The security is not as much of an issue with a standalone time collection product,” said Moon.

Flexible and Easy to Use
PowerTime is very user friendly, has adapted well to our needs, and training took very little time,” states Moon. A small group of administrators were originally trained in the use of PowerTime and then SSEMC trained their own supervisors and employees, thereby eliminating costly training sessions for all employees.
