We feel your pain, as we have been there before too.
Before our CEO Jinyong Kim started Albam. The founder of Blue-Night Corporation had his idea of a perfect Time Attendance solution developed when he was managing a pub for himself a few years ago. As a business owner himself. Our founder understands the trouble and time that is needed to solve the different types of pain points that are faced by business owners. From not being able to check attendances remotely, missing attendances information due to manual inputs and a tons of other pain points. This have all led to redundancies and inefficiencies. Our founder, Jinyong Kim realized that rather than doing things which would have helped him develop his business, he has been spending a lot of time on administration. This is where his lightbulb moment came to light.
During his time as a pub owner. Jinyong Kim is determined to develop a Time attendance solution to solve troublesome staff time management and salary calculation that he himself faces. Using his past experience as a researcher in Samsung Electronics. He developed a program, one that would eventually be the basic foundation for Albam App. The simple program developed by Jinyong Kim has now evolved into more than just staff’s commute records and work schedule management. It can even automatically calculate payroll at once which includes insurance, vacation allowance and various tax calculation.

Increase of minimum wage
The ever increasing minimum wage rate increase that happened in 18 states at the United States itself this year is a hit at SMBs. For many small businesses that employ 2–3 employees. They will take a direct impact on margins and cash flows from the increase in minimum wage requirements. This will make companies rethink on ways to save costs. Especially for small companies which have a low profit margin.
The enactment of mandatory enrollment time record
In addition, various governments all around the world is now reviewing the enactment of the mandatory enrollment time record. Much developed countries like Japan and South Korea for example. They have made it necessary for employers to record the time attendance for their staffs. With South Korea for example that has recently limited its working week to only 52 hours in an attempt to stop overwork. The new rule will be in place by 2020. With fines of up to $17,815 and prison for up to 2 years for those who broke the rules. In other parts of the world, United States for example. The U.S Equal Employment Opportunity commission has stated that employers in the United States are required to keep all personnel or employment records for one year.
