North American Bancard Holdings, LLC. (NAB), a multi-faceted and award-winning payment solutions provider, and Homebase, leading provider of team management solutions to local business, today announced that the two have entered into a partnership to offer small businesses a robust and easy-to-use employee management tool. The Homebase software is being offered through NAB’s PayAnywhere technology platform.
NAB added a time clock feature into its PayAnywhere application, and now, through an integration with Homebase, employees can easily clock in and out not only through PayAnywhere but also through the Homebase platform, which can turn tablets, smart phones, and a computer browser into a sophisticated time clock. In addition to recording hours worked, the Homebase integration enables business owners to download timesheets for payroll, broadcast team communications, and access employee scheduling capabilities, allowing merchants to manage labor costs in real-time.
The time clock integration and basic timesheet management and scheduling capabilities through Homebase are provided for free to all PayAnywhere merchants. These merchants also have the option to upgrade to even more advanced employee management capabilities available from Homebase, such as predictive scheduling, GPS-enabled time clock, robust time-keeping features, and powerful reporting tools.
“Through our PayAnywhere platform and merchant portals, NAB is committed to crafting comprehensive solutions that help merchants manage and grow their businesses,” said Marc Gardner, president and CEO of North American Bancard. “Our partnership with Homebase for employee management is an important step in our becoming a one-stop shop, providing easy access to intuitive tools merchants need to succeed.”
NAB’s PayAnywhere technology platform also provides merchants access to a wide array of capabilities to efficiently run their business, including inventory management, in-depth reporting, dispute and chargeback management, account and equipment maintenance, invoice management, and a virtual terminal to accept phone, mail and online payments.
“Homebase is committed to making hourly work easier for every owner, manager, and team member. Our partnership with NAB and our integration with PayAnywhere brings us one step closer to that goal, as we can now help improve the lives of workers across their broad base of customers. We are excited to bring our leading tools for scheduling, time-tracking, communication and hiring to PayAnywhere customers through one integrated and easy-to-use solution,” said John Waldmann, CEO of Homebase.
More than 100,000 businesses rely on Homebase’s scheduling, time tracking, team communication, and hiring platform to help simplify their daily work, giving them hours back every week. Based in San Francisco and Houston, the team is all former hourly employees and managers themselves. Homebase is backed by leading venture investors including Bain Capital Ventures, Baseline Ventures, Cowboy Ventures, and Khosla Ventures. For more information, please visit www.joinhomebase.com.
