Richardson, TX, June 23, 2009 (PRNewswire)– Vertical Computer Systems Inc (OTCBB: VCSY)(www.vcsy.com) is pleased to announce it has purchased Priority Time Systems, Inc. (Priority Time Systems) from Mark Arredondo and retained Mr. Arredondo as its President. Under the terms of the stock purchase agreement, VCSY purchased a 90% interest in Priority Time Systems from Mr. Arredondo. Priority Time Systems is currently finalizing its time and attendance software which will be coupled with a competitive time clock. Once completed, Priority Time Systems’ product will be a comprehensive time and attendance application that will compete with the leading competitors in the field.
Mark Arredondo is an industry veteran in employer services, with a particular expertise in payroll and time-management. Mr. Arredondo began his career in Las Vegas with ADP, a payroll and human resource provider, and worked his way up to Regional Sales Manager, the top position in the office, where he managed 12 sales reps. He and his team in Las Vegas quickly became one of the top-producing sales offices in the country.
Later, he became a Vice President of Sales and an equity partner with Compu-Cash Systems (Compu-Cash), a Kronos reseller, and sold time and labor products to such companies as The Venetian, Wynn Las Vegas, Station Casinos, The Palms, Hard Rock, and Caesar’s among many others. Mr. Arredondo later sold his ownership stake in Compu-Cash.
“We believe there is a great synergy between the two companies and their respective products. Priority Time Systems’ time and attendance product can be fully integrated with emPath®, the payroll and human resources product of NOW Solutions, VCSY’s wholly owned subsidiary, to meet the needs of its clients. Initially, NOW Solutions will focus on its healthcare and governmental clients and VCSY will also sell the Priority Time Systems product separately,” stated Richard Wade, President and CEO of Vertical Computer Systems, Inc. “We are confident that Mark Arredondo, who was a top performer for ADP as well as Kronos, can provide the expertise to successfully launch a time and attendance product utilizing the newest web-based technology.”
“I am extremely pleased to join the VCSY family and to have the opportunity to finalize the completion of the time and attendance product I have been developing to capitalize on what I perceive to be a significant weakness of existing market leaders“ added Mark Arredondo, President of Priority Time Systems, Inc. “I am confident that we will be able to greatly enhance the value of the company’s HR and payroll software with our time and attendance application.”
