TimeCUE was designed by Alexander Software, Inc. (ASi) with one goal, make time keeping easier. It was built from the ground up to be mobile and flexible, which means features can be added to fit your company needs very quickly. From automated reports that show all the hours worked by your employees in your inbox every morning, to seamless intergration capabilities for your payroll, staffing and accounting partners, TimeCUE can be tailored to fit any company.

Mobile employees see a huge benefit from using TimeCUE. One issue that a lot of companies face is how to manage their mobile work force. Are they where they need to be? Are they there at the expected time? With TimeCUE all of these questions are answered.

July 7 Lunch Speaker:
Kriston Sellier
Brand Identity for Business 
 id8 is a boutique full-service advertising agency conveniently located in Marietta Square.
id8 combines marketing & branding strategies with distinctively different creative solutions

In her role as CEO of id8, it is Kriston Sellier’s responsibility to cultivate the company culture she has envisioned since she opened the agency’s doors in 2000—one that nurtures new and innovative thinking, a relaxed approach to communicating with clients, and an understanding of the critical role design thinking plays in every business strategy.

Kriston’s vision is to create a “new agency”—one that brings more tangible value to the client by going far beyond creating designs that are visually appealing. Her goal with each and every client is to work hand in hand to understand their business goals—from generating leads to improving customer service to positioning for expansion—and deliver design solutions that will be an integral part of meeting those goals.
