Writhlington Sports and Leisure installs Bodet biometric time and attendance system
Recreational center Writhlington Sports and Leisure recently installed a new time and attendance system from Bodet that uses digital fingerprint scanners, automating the clocking in and out process for its 70 staff members.
The new automated system replaces the center’s previous paper-based system which required each staff member to manually complete time sheets each week.
The paper-based system also took management several hours every month to check the time sheets for errors, in an effort to generate a monthly report for payroll.
Bodet’s system streamlines the process of clocking on or off as employees simply place their finger onto the biometric reader pad when they start or end their shift.
The fingerprint is then compared against the employee’s stored profile and the identity and time record is sent to the Kelio Integral software on the main server.
The software is then able to generate customized reports of time and attendance for payroll and operational management teams.
Matt Wise, Writhlington Sports Centre’s director of leisure, said the new system is benefiting both employees and customers, as management no longer has to manually check time sheets.
Management is able to ensure that all areas of the center are fully staffed and therefore maintain high safety levels.
“Now we have real time attendance data, we can see immediately who is on site, and if there are any absences,” said Wise. “We can ensure that we have effective cover for all areas and that safety isn’t compromised. The software also generates tailored management reports. Current and historic attendance information can be accessed at the press of a button so management teams have accurate staffing data for performance management and future planning at every level.”
