Robinson Packaging has benefited from Mitrefinch systems in:
- Highlighting staff issues
- Working with numerous payroll systems
- Producing tailored reports
Moving with the times
Robinson Consumer Packaging was aiming to move from its manual clocking system at the same time as transferring around 150 staff members to annualised hours. The company needed a solution capable of providing up-to-date records and weekly payroll reports, with minimum management input.
A growing number of industries are increasingly moving towards annualised hour systems as it helps HR plan staffing cover efficiently. However, it does mean an advanced attendance system is required so that processes can be implemented appropriately, especially during busy periods.
Benefiting from efficiency savings
Mitrefinch installed a Time and Attendance system to meet the HR needs of Robinson Packaging. Stuart Yates, Robinson Packaging’s analyst programmer, believes on a day-to-day basis, the clocking-in and out system has improved efficiency for staff and played a key role in highlighting potential problems.
“We have found TMS to be far more effective than our previous manual system and it is easy to manage, with a wealth of information available at the press of a button. We also use the information captured by TMS for calculating wages and transfer the working hours data directly to the payroll department. This has saved us a considerable amount of time.” Stuart Yates, Analyst Programmer
Robinson Consumer Packaging has also realised the unexpected benefits of Mitrefinch’s Report Writer, especially the ability to create specific reports tailored to their business needs.
