The right people are on the ground delivering
Our staff work different hours from each other so the system makes it very easy to set up different working rules for individuals.

Customers rely on you to get goods to them fast, as and when they need them. Our time and attendance solutions can get drivers clocked in and on the road faster as well as managing and tracking warehouse shifts to ensure accurate pay and operational efficiency.
With the Chronologic time and attendance management system it’s easy to induct agency as well as permanent staff quickly and efficiently using fingerprint biometric clocking in terminals and get them out on the road.
In the warehouse our time and attendance solutions give operations managers a real-time view of who’s on-site, on holiday, sick, etc. Any shortfall in staffing can be seen immediately and shifts re-organised quickly to provide effective cover.
Information such as licence renewals, forklift licences, training, the issue of PPE equipment, etc., can be recorded against employee’s HR records, another handy feature that saves time and increases efficiency.
Arthur David started life as a fruit and vegetable wholesale business in Bristol over 50 years ago, and has since developed into a successful food service delivery business. Customers include 5 star fine dining restaurants, hotels, cafes, pub chains and schools.
The company employs 230 full-time staff working 7 days a week on a site which includes their head office, warehouse and delivery fleet.
As the company has continued to grow, their old paper-based time and attendance system was becoming hard to manage and the information recorded inaccurate. They approached Chronologic to replace the paper system with a new software solution.
Daren Hill, Operations Director comments, “We wanted a system that wasn’t prone to human error. We also wanted to more accurately record things like overtime, sickness and holidays. Overall we needed to modernise the way we looked after this side of the business.”
Arthur David chose the Chronologic Workforce Management System because it can be precisely tailored to each individual organisation’s shift patterns, pay rules and reporting requirements. Biometric hand scanning was also an important factor in ensuring ease of use and accuracy.
“The initial set up was straightforward enough and we received very good support.
Daren adds, “The Chronologic Workforce Management System is very good for a medium sized business like ours. If I was going to start the process again I think you must be 100% clear how you want to set up daily and weekly rules and schedules because changing it all later causes confusion and I would make sure staff contracts have been reviewed before the system is set up.”
The system is ideal because it’s adaptable and can be changed by us with little input from technical support at Chronologic. But when support is needed they are able to respond quickly.
