How a cutting-edge technology company revolutionised how employees register their working hours from their office at Ocean Village Innovation Centre.

Business based at OVIC

A British technology company has chosen Ocean Village Innovation Centre (OVIC) from which to launch a digital clocking-on service for businesses and organisations across the UK. The web-based mobile application by Smarter Innovation Systems enables workers to remotely clock in and out through their smartphones or other internet-connected devices, ensuring time and attendance are accurately recorded.

"We searched long and hard for the right premises in Southampton. OVIC was the right choice because of the friendly centre staff, the professional look and feel of the reception and meeting rooms and the excellent value for money.”

Adrian Precious, Head of Sales and Marketing at Smarter Innovation Systems

As part of OVIC’s business ecosystem, where 40 firms on site increasingly do business with one another, Smarter Innovation Systems has forged partner links with HR and recruitment consultancy Stellamar. In addition, the new website for Smarter Innovation Systems was completed by fellow occupier Nutley & Nutley, a website design agency. OVIC has been the perfect place for Smarter Innovation Systems to grow, joining our vibrant community of businesses and entrepreneurs.
