- Reduce paperwork
- Cope with different work patterns
- Offers flexibility to companies and organisations
Staff at the University of Leicester were facing escalating amounts of paperwork due to managing between 500 and 700 members of staff across three different sites. With seasonal workers and changing shift patterns, it become clear a solution was needed that would make use of technology and reduce administrative time.
The university opted for Mitrefinch’s web-based TMS system that would allow users to clock-in and clock-out without having to complete paper timesheets. This brought immediate benefits to staff and allowed managers to effectively oversee flexible working arrangements.
