Initial phase planned for core group of 300 engineers

Miami Lakes, FL — July 8, 2004 — Farmington, Conn.-based Carrier Corp., a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. and the world leader in air conditioning heating and refrigeration, said today it is implementing Kaba Benzing's AutoTime time and attendance and labor reporting software to provide accurate labor information.

During the "proof of concept" period, the initial implementation will be with a core of approximately 300 engineers in which AutoTime will track each engineer's project time.

AutoTime is a software system for time and attendance, labor distribution, and material movement tracking for exempt and non-exempt personnel. The provider said the software captures and processes direct and indirect labor and calculates employee payroll in environments ranging from simple to complex.

"Carrier wants to replace multiple systems that don't talk to each other with one application for tracking time," reported John Edwards, president and general manager of Kaba Benzing America. "We are confident of an initial success and look forward to helping Carrier roll AutoTime out to all its engineers, located in facilities worldwide and then expanding the system to payroll and tracking their hourly workers."

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