2019 – A year in Review and a peek at the decade ahead

ZKTeco would like to give thanks to all of our customers for yet another successful year. Together we have achieved so much: we have proudly partnered with many new clients; navigated them through successful implementations; and worked hard at delivering better-than-ever workforce data collection services to our existing clients.

This year was a great year for ZKTeco. By listening to our customers, we have improved our current solution – and made it even easier to implement and use. We have drive and desire to keep making improvements that make our customers happy. This year we migrated most of our clients to CirrusDCS and are looking to migrate the remaining clients by the end of Q1 2020. We've also worked on our Ultima time clock, a 7-inch touch-screen modular device that gives our customers self-service options like viewing, requesting vacation time, or sending a manager a message. We are proud to say that Ultima has proven to be successful and a new favorite for our customers.

Workday Rising Orlando was a great experience as always and we are proud to announce that this was our first time assisting Workday Rising Europe. More than 200 Workday end customers and prospects visited us and we’ve already added 4 new customers to the group.

We always look forward to the face-to-face conversations we get to have in Orlando – and were delighted with the new connections and potential customers we met in Europe. We got wonderful feedback on our Ultima terminal; which we're ecstatic about. We look forward to reconnecting with everyone at both events again next year.

ZKTeco had such a successful 2019 that we outgrew our original home office and are now settled in our bigger office. We’re proud to work alongside all the new faces added to our team over the year. Everyone is eager to help all of our current customers and ready to welcome and help new ones.

2019 Achievements

We proudly reflect on our achievements over the year, and the many ways we have helped our Partners and Workday Users. In 2019 we launched:

  • CirrusDCS – Next Generation Data collection service
  • Ultima – Next generation, Flexible Data Collection terminals
  • Time Track – Android Data collection app for Ultima
  • Integrated Multi-technology Card reader that can read 70+ card types. This makes life easy for software partners to handle multiple card read from single module.
  • Time Track application API - so partners can easily integrate a time clock to their host application

Here’s what else we did:

  • We helped a workforce management software provider successfully integrate school-industry software with our cloud-based Data collection service.
  • By enhancing features and further streamlining the implementation process for Workday customers, they happily saw a reduction in their overall time for implementation.
  • We completed one of the largest implementations of over 800 clocks.
  • Proudly sponsored Workday Rising – Orlando
  • Proudly exhibited at Workday Rising – Milan
  • Proudly exhibited at HR Tech – Las Vegas

A sneak peak at the year – and decade – ahead

Going into the New Year, you can expect big things from us. We’ll continue to enhance time-tracking features for Workday customers and expand the tools available to make integration easier for third-party and Workforce management partners. And our Ultima family will continue to grow, as we add 5 inch and 10-inch terminals, as well as multiple biometric options.

Without our customers, new and old - without each implementation being a unique experience (because let’s face it, all customers have different requirements), we wouldn't be as successful as we are today. We appreciate all of the business and the wonderful word-of-mouth recommendations that we have gotten thus far. We look forward to helping many more connections and customers, both old and new, as we head into the next decade of workforce management time and attendance.
