Keeping track of who’s on-site
The old software wasn’t flexible enough and didn’t do even half of what the new Chronologic time and attendance system does. The flexibility of the time and attendance rules for the tracking of the many different start and end times and the ease with which the rota can be programmed saves us time.
Oxford City Council Recycling
In the past the 70 staff at the waste and recycling depot filled in their time sheets manually, which is not an accurate or efficient way to record attendance at work. The installation of the new time & attendance software has enabled the council to streamline the service and make financial savings.
There are two biometric hand scanning terminals used for staff to clock in and out. One is located inside and the other outside, with a special hurricane cover so that it can be used in all weathers. A customised ‘Run Out’ screen has been provided so that managers can plan working schedules very quickly and more accurately.
Ian Bourton, Oxford City Council project manager,
“The Chronologic Workforce Management System has made it easier:
- To allocate staff shifts and managers can monitor and report staff attendance.
- Holidays, lieu time and sickness absence are also recorded much more accurately.
- Precise clocking in and out of staff members means that managers can see the information at any time on the screen.
- You haven’t got staff filling out time sheets when they could be using the time to carry out work.
- Staff can ‘bank’ hours they haven’t used, which we can use to undertake training for example.
- There is more accurate recording of overtime and we are now just using one database instead of three or four.”
