The Office of Innovation and Technology (OIT) of the City of Philadelphia just released a Request for Information (RFI) for Time Data Collection Solutions.
Statement of Purpose
The City of Philadelphia (“City”), through the Office of Innovation and Technology (OIT), is seeking information about modern time data collection solutions and integration of those solutions with existing City systems. The City is also interested in understanding the options for migrating time collection solutions across the enterprise in its federated environment with highly varied job types. The City is seeking this information in anticipation of posting one or more requests for proposal (RFPs) to provide solutions to meet the needs of the City’s various organizational units. The City is open to nearly any solution including, but not limited to, wired and wireless time collection tools, such as PC/Web, badge cards readers, Telephone / IVR, mobile devices, biometrics, etc.
Through this RFI, the City is seeking to:
- Understand the current time data collection offerings in the marketplace and the capabilities and price point of those offerings
- Understand the challenges faced by organizations comparable to the City that have recently implemented time data collection solutions
- Understand the business value of implementing modern time data collection solutions
- Learn about good and best practice approaches to implementing time collection solutions
Working environments and time management needs vary greatly for the City’s approximately 27,000 employees. Many City employees operate within more than 2,500 locations around Philadelphia and many operate outside of an office space. City employees use a variety of time data solutions to record their working hours, recording starting and ending times, breaks, and work assignment (e.g. projects, working roles, etc.). The City currently has approximately 100 time collection devices in place, used by nearly 3,200 employees.
