Why why call ourselves Clockware:

Clockware and swarmware are terms coined by Kevin Kelly, the editor of Wired magazine, to describe the two basic approaches to management. Clockware implies the highly planned and organized approach while swarmware invokes the more organic processes of what are known as complex adaptive systems. Such systems rely on the emergence of structured order from apparent chaos while clockware relies on the use of explicit hierarchy and planned approaches to standard business issues. As the name of our company implies, we are interested in helping our clients to painlessly execute the tasks of keeping track of employee hours and schedules so that more internal energy can be devoted to handling the swarmware aspects of doing business. In other words, Clockware enables you to off-load the time management issues so that you and your employees can focus on the more complex tasks of doing business. If you are interested in learning more about Kelly's ideas and how they apply to business, the following are some excellent introductory links:
