ATAMS At Work (an illustrated example)
Harrison Industrial Services Inc. ATAMS General System Layout Harrison Industrial Services Inc. ATAMS General System Layout
Bob comes in and picks up his ATAMS unit.
Bob scans the "IN" bar code on his way into the office. This starts Bob's payroll time and eliminates the need to punch in on a time clock. Every time the ATAMS unit scans a bar code, it automatically logs the date and time associated with the event.

Bob selects a work order and scans the work order number. Bob's time immediately starts billing against that particular job.
Bob needs some parts from inventory. He scans the bar code on the box, immediately logging the parts out of inventory and assigning them to Bob's active work order.

Bob needs to run to the hardware store and pick up an item. He scans the bar code on the dashboard and types in the last three digits shown on the odometer. Upon his return, he once again scans the dashboard bar code and enters the last three digits from the odometer. ATAMS uses this information to compute the distance traveled and logs the resulting mileage against Bob's active work order.
Bob makes a couple copies. Afterward, he scans a bar code on the printer and logs the number of copies made. ATAMS logs these copies against Bob's active work order, thus turning the pirnter into a profit center. Later that day, he follows the same procedure when sending 3 faxes.

At the end of the day, Bob scans one last bar code, logging him out for the day. Time immediately stops accruing to his payroll and active work order. ATAMS uses start and stop times to computer the length of Bob's work day and the amount of time spent on each scanned work order.
Bob places his ATAMS unit on an upload station and walks out the door. ATAMS automatically transfers all data from the unit and performs all required calculations, updating the company database.

Harrison Industrial Services Inc. ATAMS Report Sample
ATAMS can export uploaded data in a variety of common formats, usable by almost any spreadsheet or database application. ATAMS automatically stores all uploaded data for historical reference in an easily accessible format. User interfaces currently exist for FileMaker Pro and Microsoft Excel. We can further customize these systems to manage workflow and generate reports specific to your needs.
