Improving efficiency

Based in Elgin, Johnstons selected Mitrefinch’s Time & Attendance, HR Manager and Flexipay Payroll packages, replacing the company’s previous in-house time & attendance and payroll systems to improve staff management and efficiency within the organisation.

Mitrefinch was the product of choice for Johnstons allowing the systems to be linked saving valuable time and reducing labour costs. The package suits specific company requirements and provides managers with the facility to accurately monitor staff time and attendance. Mitrefinch’s Time & Attendance enables businesses to improve time management and absence control, enhancing security and staff safety. It is an invaluable HR management tool which can be quickly and easily linked to other Mitrefinch systems tailored to individual business needs.

Gerry Skelton, Human Resources Director at Johnstons says: “The Mitrefinch package has provided the opportunity to integrate all of our personnel and payroll needs into one solution. With the package in place we can manage HR and time and attendance centrally from the Elgin site making significant savings on administration.“


Mitrefinch’s Flexipay payroll software ensures automatic capture and transfer of payroll data for businesses. It allows companies to perform tax, NI, SSP, SMP, SAP and SPP calculations as well as other essential payroll procedures. The system is flexible and easy to use.

Installed in 2002, the Mitrefinch systems cover the 800 employees based at Johnstons’ four sites and is used on a daily basis to observe access control and monitor staff attendance.

The HR Manager from Mitrefinch reduces paper flow and administration within a company’s HR department. It enables HR staff to store, manage and report on employee information from one central source, attaching scanned images and other electronic files that can be obtained quickly and easily.
