Al Murad chose Synel to record attendance of employees

Al Murad invested in Synel’s state-of-the-art biometric attendance system.

With the aim to consolidate HR reporting across locations, Al Murad chose TimeLOG Web hosted along with Synel’s latest biometric attendance terminal, Synergy.


Al Murad is one of Britain’s largest importers and retailers of ceramic tiles and natural stone. The Leeds-based group operates from more than 40 stores and 30 franchises in the United Kingdom and also sells underfloor heating and tile accessories.

Given the number of store and franchise locations, the major challenge faced by Al Murad was to run a Time & Attendance Solution that would be able to manage attendance, holidays and timings of employees in different stores from a single System Admin View, which would be based in Leeds.

This system would need to enable HR managers to manage and control holidays and attendance of employees but also have a feature that provided consolidated HR Attendance Reporting from all different Al Murad sites.

The company has chosen SYnergy Terminal. The very latest in Biometric Attendance System technology, by Synel, SYnergy is a Linux-based fingerprint biometric attendance system. It combines a graphic colour screen with technologically advanced features for all time and attendance applications.

Easy, Modular Growth and Adaptation

Synel’s biometric terminal, SYnergy, is compact and aesthetic, fitting easily into any office environment. It is also equipped with a built-in camera for added authentication. It also comes with a speaker to generate various required sound effects, including alert notifications, confirmation or rejection of verification, as well as other event indications.

Synel SYnergy offers an unlimited number of licences, and can adapt to suit the needs of a rapidly growing organisation such as Al Murad.

Synel’s modular TimeLOGWeb solution proved the ideal system. TimeLOGWeb successfully incorporates time and attendance, scheduling  and absence requests in a single easy-to-use solution.

Synel suggested the following modular solutions to the company in order to improve attendance:

  • TimeLOGWeb software for time and attendance
  • Synergy MiFare time recording terminal

Record Attendance. The Synel Way!

After the installation of SYnergy, Al-Murad now benefits from:

  • Savings of as much as 3% of payroll cost
  • Savings of up to 20% of overtime costs
  • Safeguarding safety of staff and premises
  • Increased efficiency and reduced administrative work
  • Easy, efficient regulatory compliance

The Synel biometric system records attendance and presence of any enrolled employee, contractor or visitor utilising one of our MiFare card attendance terminals.

The terminal operates using biometric technology, and the system interfaces with Microsoft Excel. It’s easily possible to use the service to transfer data of hours worked, as required.

The terminal also connects to the Internet utilising TCP/IP connectivity. TimeLOGWeb time and attendance software can be accessed from any Internet-enabled device.
