Geneva Business Management Systems (GBMS)



While GBMS Attendance tracks the arrivals, meal breaks, and departures of the employee's workday, the GBMS Labor module tracks what the employee worked on and how much time was spent working on it. Employees use their bar-coded Employee ID card and the bar codes of the work orders to scan themselves on and off of jobs.

Time is tracked against jobs by using automated collection equipment to log jobs in and out of the defined operations. Supervisors and managers can view the real-time status of their employees' performance and also the status of the jobs they are supervising. Using the Labor module, companies can track current costs and predict future costs more accurately.

Additionally, GBMS Labor lets users print work orders (shop travelers) with bar codes and other related information, such as operation / task notes and diagrams. The module provides detailed reports of hours worked per work order, operation, part number, or time period.

Features & Functions

  • Labor Transactions— View in real-time the jobs that employees are currently labored onto as well as the jobs they have already completed. Monitor accumulated actual time versus standard time as workers log off of jobs. Generate labor transactions from a data collection device, or enter them via the user interface.

  • User Defined Parameters — Define an unlimited number of work order statuses as well as work order operations / tasks, work order routings, work centers, warehouses, machines, and defect codes. Manually or automatically generate user-defined work order numbers and customer numbers.

  • Piecework — Track piecework incentive pay for individuals, teams or crews. At the end of the day, GBMS checks to see if employees met their piece rate quota, and automatically determines whether to pay them the piece rate or the minimum hourly rate.
