MIAMI LAKES, Fla.--()--Jan. 21, 2004--

  Kaba Benzing is L-3 Communications' Only Time and Labor Management "Preferred Solution Partner"  



Kaba Benzing, a subsidiary of $690 million Kaba Holding AG and worldwide leader in time and labor management systems, today announced that Menlo Park, Calif.-based L-3 Communications Randtron Antenna Systems Division will begin implementing Kaba Benzing's AutoTime time and attendance and labor reporting software to provide accurate labor information and validate production orders and operations against data retrieved from the other software suites, including Baan Aerospace & Defense ERP.

AutoTime is a robust software system for time and attendance, labor distribution, and material movement tracking for exempt and non-exempt personnel. AutoTime captures and processes direct and indirect labor and calculates employee payroll in environments ranging from simple to complex. It offers strategic value to companies concerned with their use and cost of direct and indirect labor. It is highly configurable and quickly accommodates ever-changing, complex work rules that govern employee pay.

"Kaba Benzing was selected for three main reasons," reports Ron Hovind, Vice President-Finance, L-3 Communications Randtron Antenna Systems. "Kaba Benzing has a partnership in which AutoTime provides connectivity with Baan Aerospace & Defense software, our ERP system. In addition, AutoTime can handle our 9/80 work schedule. Importantly, Kaba Benzing has shown an eagerness to work with us and we're looking forward to their support in implementing and maintaining AutoTime at our facility."

AutoTime is installed at over 200 individual sites that employ from 150 to 15,000 employees and interfaces with leading ERP, payroll and enterprise systems.

"We are honored that L-3 Communications has selected us as their only time and labor management 'preferred solution partner' for access by all L-3 Communications divisions and groups," emphasizes John Edwards, president and general manager of Kaba Benzing America. "The Randtron Antenna Systems Division is the first of many L-3 Communications implementations we will be announcing."
