Time & Attendance Drives Forward Commercial Vehicle Engineers

Located in the North East of England, Cramlington Precision Forge is home to over 124 employees who are responsible for producing high quality, precision-forged components to the commercial vehicle sector and industrial markets.

In 2018, Cramlington Precision Forge decided that they were in need of a time and attendance system in order to better manage on and off site staff while giving employees a platform where they can easily book holiday entitlement and clock in and out of shifts. 

Amanda Montgomery, HR Officer at Cramlington Precision Forge said it was time for change and that going off employee word was not a sufficient method of managing staff. “Initially, we had no time and attendance system in place so we just had to go off of the employee’s word on the hours they had worked.”

The day-to-day running of the business has been streamlined and made more efficient thanks to Tensor’s time and attendance system. “We use Tensor’s time and attendance system for running attendance reports as well as personnel files. We also use the Self-Service Module so that our employees can request to book off their holidays.” 

With a time and attendance system in place, and a reliable and attentive after sales team on-hand to answer any queries they may have, Cramlington Precision Forge can now rest assured that they have the best system in place to deal with HR matters and employee entitlements. 

Managing staff with time and attendance 

Having the ability to easily clock in and out of shifts is vitally important for both employers and employees. It enables employers to have a complete overview of exactly when staff clock in and out of shifts, meaning they can ensure all working hours are completed and the automatic payroll configuration allows payday to be a quick and simple process.

An ever-growing workforce can often lead to a strained and overloaded HR department. Time & Attendance UK design, manufacture and install efficient and easy-to-use time and attendance systems which are proven to lighten the workload for HR officers, such as Amanda Montgomery of Cramlington Precision Forge.

Expert time and attendance software

Additionally, our web-based application, the Self-Service Module (part of our time and attendance software, WinTA.NET) allows enrolled employees to clock in or out of shifts and book themselves on or off the fire evacuation list via. computer or via the mobile app. An employee can also use the software to request new periods of absence, cancel pending absence requests or cancel approved absence requests that have not yet occurred. Requests can also be made to add missed clockings, amend or delete clockings made in error.

Working in conjunction with the Self-Service Module, the fire roll call app helps ensure your staff and visitors’ safety in case of an emergency evacuation, immediately providing you with a list of who is currently clocked-in on site.
