UK building services contractor Haden Young has implemented workforce management software to eliminate manual time sheets and ensure the accuracy of payrolls of all site-based employees.
The Kronos Workforce Central software will manage the time and attendance of more than 1,000 on-site employees at more than 45 sites and link to Haden Young's existing Redsky IT Payroll system.
Haden Young selected the Kronos product above others on the shortlist because it included biometric finger print scanners, and because of its ability to integrate with the company's payroll system.
The system collects information directly from site offices and all clocking information is available centrally at Haden Young's headquarters within 20 seconds, compared with two hours using the previous system.
Shaun Nolan, the IT analyst responsible for the project, said that at the 18 sites that Haydon Young had already deployed biometric readers, the Kronos system had eliminated any possibility of employees clocking in on behalf of others.
"Using biometric readers ensures we have accurate records of who is on site for health and safety reasons and for this reason the use of the technology is supported by industry unions," he said.
