MamaMia Produce, headquartered in East Rutherford, NJ, is a leading fruit and vegetable produce wholesaler in New England.


The company was searching for a way to streamline workforce management and actively control labor costs. As growing seasons vary, MamaMia also needed to ensure their labor supply continually met seasonal demand. One of the further challenges they faced was reducing the impact of unplanned absences. As produce must be picked at an optimal time to remain fresh, understaffing was leading to waste, poor productivity, and a decrease in overall quality.

What MamaMia Produce needed was a solution that could:

  • Streamline time and attendance approval and payroll processes
  • Help managers oversee time to labor costs
  • Minimize compliance risk associated with OSHA and industry regulations
  • Empower employees to self-manage their leave and attendance

“MamaMia Produce has been using Advance Systems Time & Attendance for over 4 years.
