If you are a Sprint user, we have exciting news! (If you are using a timesheet system other than Sprint currently, this message will not apply).
We’ve recently completed successful trials of our new timesheet system – iTempaid – and are ready to roll this out to all remaining employees and clients of our temporary staffing and ATA services currently using Sprint with effect from next week. This means that, if you are using our Sprint system currently, then your timesheet for your working hours in the w/e 28th September 2018 shall be the last you submit/authorise via Sprint.
Inevitably, given the weekly nature of the payroll, we need to account for some conflicting processes as we transition from the old to new system. We care that you do not suffer unnecessary disruption, so we’re committed to doing all we can to minimise any inconvenience to you. However, we shall need your help in some small but important ways to ensure the transition is as smooth as it can be.
Note that, after this transitional week, your timesheet will normally be made available on Friday in respect of the following week. It’s possible that it may be later from time-to-time, but normally not later than Monday of the same week and the time by which you will need those timesheets approved will revert to by 10:30am each Tuesday.
Client Timesheet Approvers
After this transitional week, the timesheet approval deadline shall be by 10:30am each Tuesday.
We anticipate that your first question may be ‘Why is Step Ahead making this change?’. Amongst the variety of reasons are that, in addition to new features, iTempaid offers added security for the ways in which we handle your personal data in respect of timesheets and payslips. For our employees, it also means we can display your pay rate on the timesheet and, soon, it shall be possible to view both your timesheets AND payslips on iTempaid from a single secure logon; we will cease to send payslips by email when we introduce this feature. For clients, added features will include the ability to add a Purchase Order number and you will be able to view the charge rate on the timesheet. Clients have the facility to approve multiple timesheets at once if they wish and both clients and employees will also be able to export timesheet details into Excel in csv format.
The attached guides include contact details for any other questions you may have going forward, but during the transition period we will have a team of people available to deal with any queries or problems which come up as you get to know the new system. You can contact:
