Fuel pump manufacturer Tokheim has introduced a fingerprint scanner to monitor the working hours of its employees and integrate the results directly into its payroll and HR system.

This month the company will finish installing Kronos Systems' Workforce Central to monitor and manage attendance at its Dundee manufacturing site.

Workforce Central will integrate into Tokheim's HR and payroll product, Snowdrop Systems for HR.

The firm aims to boost the accuracy of its payroll to 100% by eliminating the error-prone rekeying of data.

Lesley Norcross, from Tokheim's finance division, said, "Absolute accuracy has not always been possible with systems which require manual input. With Kronos, we will have a system that requires the minimum amount of human intervention and no manual data input."

The system will enable Tokheim's supervisors to deal with absence or lateness immediately, and management will gain data analytics tools. "With staff located across a large area it is essential that supervisors know when production might be affected by staff shortages," it said.
