Enterprise Project Management for APD eTIME Deployment


A significant hourly field workforce had been developed over years of acquiring smaller, local companies. Each region and location operated a different time keeping system. The company decided to unify pay policies and practices, as well as automate time keeping with APD’s Enterprise eTime.  A 12-month project was underway to roll out eTime to over 9,000 hourly employees across North America, but the Project Manager previously assigned was struggling to stay on schedule.


  • Took over as Project Manager and implemented a structured methodology for tracking project status and prioritizing action items.Aligned technology, training, communications and support project plans around the field employee touch points.
  • Identified the deployment critical path and primary risks to the project success and communicated risks and risk mitigation plans to project sponsors.


  • Focused the team and sponsors on ensuring the critical path activities were accomplished on schedule. Excellent participation by members of the project team across all departments.
  • Led the team through the project to successfully enroll 9,000 hourly employees on eTime.  Achieved all territory go-live dates on schedule, a sense of urgency and commitment to resolving all critical systems issues, and outstanding responsiveness to field requests and feedback.
  • Due to the success of the project and implementation, eTIME enabled the organization to continue driving standardization across the company to significantly reduce payroll processing time, improve pay accuracy and provide enhanced management reporting.

“Without DataKey as the Project Manager, we would not have been able to drive the value of eTime and improved management practices into the organization in such a short timeframe.”
