Stapleford Park Country House Hotel and Sporting Estate in Leicestershire, UK has installed Bodet’s biometric time and attendance system to accurately monitor and track attendance for its staff, which includes casual and agency staff.
The hotel has over 150 employees on staff working various shifts around the clock, making it difficult to monitor staff attendance.
Previously, Stapleford Park management used time sheets to keep track of staff attendance, but the method proved to be time consuming for both non-salaried staff and those on payroll to enter the data into the system.
Another issue that kept arising is that the attendance for agency employees would only be recorded when the hotel received an invoice from the agency.
Bodet installed a new system that uses fingerprint recognition scanners which correctly identify each employee by capturing a fingerprint which is then compared against a stored profile.
The biometric data is transmitted to Kelio Integral software on the main server, which keeps track of employee identity and time, and creates customised reports of time and attendance for payroll and operational teams.
“The staff accepted the new system straight away, and we now have reliable data and we now know exactly who’s on site and when,” said Sally Hatton, payroll administrator at Stapleford Park. “It also saves so much management time. Neither we nor the duty managers have to spend time chasing people for time sheets, and as the data is entered automatically it eliminates the risk of manual entry errors.
“The only manual entries are to cover absences such as sickness and holidays or to amend shift changes. We can now generate meaningful management reports at the push of a button which can identify trends at an early stage.”
