Brandon Hall Gold Award 2020 Excellence in Technology Awards

MINNEAPOLIS – March 2, 2020 – Ascentis, a leading provider of cloud-based workforce management and human capital management technology, is proud to announce it won two coveted Excellence in Technology Awards from Brandon Hall Group for its CarePoint innovation. The Excellence in Technology Awards recognizes organizations with cutting-edge deployments of human capital management (HCM) solutions that achieve superior and measurable results.

Ascentis CarePoint is set of add-on capabilities to Ascentis Timekeeper (time and attendance software and hardware) that allows organizations to improve workforce safety without disrupting their current workplace operations. It provides a first-to-market, completely touchless experience for employees who interact with a time clock with features like temperature checks of employees and other configurable symptom prompts, voice command capabilities, and Bluetooth beacon technology to track employee whereabouts in a facility.

“During these uncertain times, there is a unique opportunity for organizations to directly impact the health of their employees and their families by providing a safe work environment,” said Jeff Cronin, Chief Product Officer, Ascentis. “Along with our existing best-of-bread workforce management technology and hardware, Ascentis CarePoint gives organizations the confidence to ensure they are providing a safe and productive environment which is critical and the first step toward accelerating organizational goals.”

More than 2,600 nominations from organizations in 48 nations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 180 professionals worldwide on seven specialized judging committees.

“Technology is the great enabler of human capital management initiatives. It has never been more important than during this rapid evolution of remote work that challenged everyone to instantly adapt,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer and awards program head Rachel Cooke. “Winners of Excellence in Technology Awards are critical drivers of their organizations’ success, especially in these disruptive times. Their solutions resulted in substantial benefit to their business and the human capital management function. That is the ultimate differentiator: the positive business impact of technology.”

“The Excellence Award in Technology also emphasizes the value of collaboration between HCM leaders, business leaders and technology developers. To win, everyone must work together to meet the needs of all stakeholders, especially the end-users. Technology Award winners met this challenge and created value for everyone,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Executive Officer Mike Cooke.
