A small one-person telephony operation in Rochester has been acquired (at least "certain assets" have) by Sandata Technologies, a 150 plus employee company in Port Washington, New York.

TeleTimecard is staffed primarily by its principal John Pacchetti.

It is unclear if Sandata will keep an office in Rochester. Sandata President Stephen Silverstein says that will be figured out during a "rationalization process" over the next 30 to 90 days.

Here's some from the release on this:

Sandata Technologies, Inc., a leading IT services provider to the home health care and social services community, today announced it has acquired certain assets from TeleTimecard LLC, headquartered in Rochester, Minnesota. TeleTimecard is an Application Service Provider of telephonic time and attendance solutions to track offsite workers and has been a long-standing licensee under Sandata's patents. The TeleTimecard system will operate through a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sandata Technologies, which will continue to support TeleTimecard's customers.



Bert E. Brodsky, chairman & chief executive officer of Sandata, commented, "We look forward to offering TeleTimecard's services as a standalone product line among our full suite of telephony time management solutions, each of which improves worker productivity, reduces fraud and maximizes our clients' return on their IT investments. TeleTimecard is a reliable entry-level telephony solution for employers seeking to monitor offsite workers' time and attendance. This solution is also well suited for many industries that require core functionality at a competitive price. TeleTimecard runs off a robust ASP platform that can be deployed quickly and easily via the web and requires no hardware or software installation."

John Pacchetti, former principal of TeleTimecard, commented, "We are excited to join forces with Sandata, which brings a 30-year track record and extensive resources that will benefit our customers. Our time management solutions and broad industry focus perfectly complement Sandata's current offering and we anticipate a very seamless transition."
