A Friendly Reminder
This Saturday night, set your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed. Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. on March 11, 2018.
Why This Is Important for Your Business
Synchronizing watches is no joke in business. It’s vital that everyone is on the same time whether you are a Web Input client or you use a physical time clock.
Be certain to inform your employees of the time change and that your IT department sets your computer’s default time to change automatically on the scheduled date and time.
Note for Physical Time Clock Users
Timeforce is set up with special features to synchronize the time clock with your computer by downloading the date & time from your computer on a daily basis.
Make sure your computer’s default time moves forward by one hour on this date. If your computer fails to adjust with the start of Daylight Savings Time, your time clock will synchronize with your computer and be one hour behind.
NOTE: If for any reason your time clock or computer does not update automatically as it should, do not make any adjustments to employees’ time cards.
Instead, contact our Support Department immediately at 918-388-3320 or email Support@swpay.com for assistance, and we will respond as quickly as possible in the order the calls are received.

Excellence & Dedication
This week our office celebrated the many years of service that Nancy Crockett has dedicated to Southwestern Payroll. A long-time volunteer at animal sanctuaries, Nancy loves exotic animals. So we honored her with a safari-themed retirement luncheon!
We all donned our animal-ear headbands and celebrated the Southwestern Payroll values she always exemplified.
She was presented with a plaque and a gift card for her wonderful service. Everyone enjoyed a great meal and some really tasty cake!
Thank you, Nancy, for so many years of excellence and dedication to our clients. We wish you all the best in the future.
