Virtual TimeClock '09 Release 3

Virtual TimeClock '09 Release 3 was made available today. The new release provides an often requested new feature: adding notes to timecard entries. Timecard notes can be used to note jobs or project tracking details, report mileage, tips, bonuses, or commissions right on the employee timecard. Employees can add a timecard note to explain a late arrival or early departure right when the event occurs.

Virtual TimeClock '09 Release 3 is compatible with the new Microsoft Windows 7 release. With the September announcement of Apple OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard support, Virtual TimeClock '09 is now fully compatible with Apple and Microsoft's newest operating systems.

We have also improved the user experience in Virtual TimeClock '09 Release 3 with over two dozen program enhancements. There is a complete list of changes in Virtual TimeClock '09 Release 3 on our web site.

Virtual TimeClock '09 Release 3 is a free upgrade for all users enrolled in our software Maintenance & Support program. We offer generously discounted upgrade pricing if you are not enrolled in our software Maintenance program.

Please contact us with any questions you have about the release. You can reply to this email, visit our web site, or call toll free from 8 AM to 5 PM PST at (888) 207-0005.

I hope you enjoy the new features and enhanced functionality we've put into Virtual TimeClock '09 Release 3!

We Are the Champions!

I was recently challenged to describe our business for a possible feature in a prominent magazine. They’re looking for what makes us unique and different, and why. They call this a ‘pitch’, which basically means you’re trying to persuade someone to buy or accept something.

This started a period of introspection. Software companies are a dime a dozen, so what makes us so special? Simply saying “Redcort Software is the best software company on the planet” may come across as being a little too subjective and one-sided. So I decided to do what I always do when faced with a question of this caliber, I made a list of what I know to be true.
  • We’ve been publishing our Virtual TimeClock software since 1986, that’s over 20 years of time and attendance software experience.
  • We’ve been online since 1997, well beyond the life expectancy of a dot com era company.
  • Our wide range of time tracking products allow us to grow with businesses of any size, so we’re able to actively pursue long-term customer relationships.
  • Tens of thousands of workers at businesses all over the world rely on Virtual TimeClock every single day, which means robust time tracking software.
  • Our time clock software helps free businesses from the unproductive cycle of repetitive tasks and unavailable information, allowing business owners to focus on what’s important.
  • We’re committed to producing and supporting software products that exceed the expectations of our customers, we hear it again and again… ease of use.
  • We recognize that our customers deserve our genuine appreciation for their business, so we reward them with regular Virtual TimeClock software updates and friendly, US based technical support.
  • We’re committed to doing business the old fashioned way, like picking up the phone rather than relying on an auto attendant.
  • We do our best to go the extra mile to satisfy a customer. I know, I know, that’s what businesses are supposed to say.

So after letting the evidence speak for itself, all I can say is, “Wow, Redcort Software is the best software company on the planet!” Now if I can just pitch it to the magazine publishers…

Confessions of a New Employee

What Virtual TimeClock and working for Redcort Software has taught me:

Computers aren’t that scary - Especially when you’ve got great people to support you.

Coming to work for a software company, I had created a list in my mind for who I was expected to be. Right at the top was a need to be fully computer literate – which I was not. I knew my way around a computer in the general sense, I could write papers and search the web and create a ‘facebook’ account (ha), but nothing to the point that I felt up to par with people who work at software companies! 

Oh, and working on a Mac – forget about it!

So how am I doing now? To my surprise and delight, Great! Turns out I’m exactly the kind of person you want when you call a software company. I completely relate to your situation and now I have the knowledge to help you out.. and luckily our time clock software is created for people like you and me! 

Oh, and Macs... they’re Awesome!!
