Food Manufacturing Giants Choose Time & Attendance for Workforce Management

KP Snacks have been producing the country’s favourite snacks for over 70 years now, and their site based in County Durham employs around 110 members of staff to help continue their legacy.

In order for them to deal with the pressures of maintaining this number of staff and keep up-to-date with HR matters, Miss Kirkbride decided that a time and attendance system was required to “replace the fire roll call paper-based system and track people’s absences to give us our KPI data and to track employees overtime.”

KP Snacks’ HR Coordinator was full of praise for Tensor’s time and attendance system because “we are able to track our working time on the system and it’s really good that it’s a one-click system giving you all the information that’s required.”

Time and attendance improves HR for businesses

Time and attendance systems undoubtedly improve and streamline day-to-day operations for any HR department by ensuring the numbers are ‘crunched’ and tasks are made simple and easy to do. Integratable with our advanced time and attendance software, there are a range of time and attendance systems that can all meet the specific requirements of your business. These include:

Smart card time and attendance

Smart card time and attendance is an easy-to-use, simple solution for businesses looking for a system to help manage their workforce. Using smart cards to clock in and out of shifts on the clocking stations, employees are able to provide their employers with an accurate and honest recording of the hours they’ve worked, also meaning they are not underpaid when payday comes around.

Advanced technology time and attendance solutions

More technologically advanced time and attendance systems are also available which serve the same purpose, but include more advanced features. Biometric time and attendance as well as facial recognition time and attendance have the ability to use fingerprints or other biometric features such as facial features to clock employees in and out of their shifts. Facial recognition time and attendance can recognise faces from the stored database even when an employee is wearing a hat or other slight obstructions such as sunglasses.

Both biometric and facial recognition time and attendance systems are able to work 24 hours a day, day or night, in any weather condition.

Time and attendance software for workforce management

There are many features of our time and attendance software that are designed to make the lives of your HR department easy. Known as WinTA.NET, our time and attendance software includes the Fire Roll Call app which immediately provides you with a list of which employees are on site should an emergency evacuation be required.

Included as part of the time and attendance software is the Self-Service Module (SSM). The SSM allows enrolled employees to clock in or out of shifts via their mobile phone or computer. Should they be working in the office, the SSM also allows employees to book themselves on or off the fire evacuation list (on or off site).
