With Africa’s business landscape undergoing rapid transformation and digitisation the name of the game, South African based technology services and solutions provider AWM360 Data Systems understands exactly what is required for companies to benefit.

The company was established in 2010 and has a proud track record of service delivery to the Human Capital Management (HCM) and Workforce Management Solutions market.

AWM360 provides innovative and cutting edge Kaba Workforce Management; Access-; and Enterprise Data Collection (EDC) solutions.

These cover time & attendance, access control, biometrics, shop floor data collection and ERP solutions.

One aspect of the business differentiates it within the continent’s rapidly developing and highly competitive human resource infrastructure market – the fact that it is the sole distributor of hardware and software solutions manufactured by Kaba AG, Switzerland, to the Southern African market.

Kaba is one of the leading manufacturers worldwide of products for EDC, the collection and processing of all safety- and time-relevant company data for measuring, visualising and optimising targets and risks of the company.

The 8000-strong global company has over 300 patents worldwide with subsidiaries and partners in over 60 countries.

AWM360 Data Systems is a certified Kaba and Logitime partner as well as a SP-Expert partner. The company offers services and solutions that integrate seamlessly across leading ERP technologies such as SAP and Microsoft, but can also stand alone.

True support

Guenter Nerlich, Managing Director & Founder of AWM360, believes that a sustainable solution requires proactive care – and the unconditional support of the owner.

This approach is underpinned by a carefully constructed service delivery model that offers a variety of structured service level agreements for clients, offering flexibility and tailored solution integration.

“It is a recipe that has proven successful for many clients. We have driven many projects involving the integration of biometric-based solutions and B-Comm ERP for SAP ERP, transforming the infrastructures for clients across Africa,” says Nerlich.

AWM360 is the trusted solutions services provider to operators within several key vertical industries including retail, high fashion, public service, automotive/engineering and hospitality/ engineering.

Value of AWM360 Kaba technology

Workforce management is becoming more competitive and fast-paced, with companies looking to better manage their labour costs, while improving operational efficiency.

The advantages of automated workforce management are clear: they help businesses to control labour costs, minimise compliance risks and improve workforce productivity.

With the financial commitment and significant investment that is required for successful automated workforce management solution integration, there is a need to control costs – and this is what AWM360’s alliance with Kaba guarantees.

This is done by minimising the risk of missing or inaccurate management information, by reducing the time and labour involved in evaluation of data, by reducing the burden on payroll & HR by condensing the volume of work on a monthly basis.

Practically, the partners offer potentially short evaluation time and necessary data transfer for further processing to the IT department (gathering of data in the last couple of days of the month with partial preliminary estimate and subsequent control and correction)

The AWM360 Kaba partnership represents a strategic combination of sought-after expertise, proven experience in Workforce and HCM Solution development, a thorough understanding of local market dynamics and the most effective approach to gain competitive advantage through technology application.

It the world of ICT, this is a genuine win-win situation for all.
