Synergy Time & Attendance (T&A)
Expandable, scalable and delivering real-world Return on Investment (ROI), Synergy T&A is also able to meet the expectations of manufacturers who employ many thousands of people with the help of its advanced scheduling and productivity planning functionality. It also, however, offers a cost-effective T&A solution for manufacturers which have just a handful of employees and only require basic functionality, such as clocking in and out.
T&A features a built-in graphical scheduler which enables a clear visual breakdown of your employees’ activities and shift information that can be customised to show only the data that you wish to see. The graphic schedular is complemented by a Presence information Panel (PIP) which allows managers to have a real time holistic overview of employees’ attendance. Employees highlighted in green are at work, orange shows the exceptions, and red indicates who is absent.
Available as standard, this Advanced Scheduling enables demand driven scheduling. Quickly assign or re-assign employees to specific jobs or tasks based on their pre-defined skills, qualifications, and availability. With this functionality, Synergy T&A eliminates the need for manual shift planning and assists you to maximise productivity which might otherwise be affected by employees being on holiday or absent for other reasons.
Accurate data capture
Synergy T&A provides the option for manufacturers to take advantage of the benefits of using the latest fingerprint-based biometric readers and contactless facial recognition devices, which include the ability to negate the possibility of an employee clocking-in for one of his colleagues, which is commonly known as ‘buddy punching’. There is also the option to use card, fob and PIN readers.
For manufacturers who employ on-the-road sales people, delivery drivers and maintenance personnel, the Synergy App allows employees to remotely register the time they start and finish a shift, record their break times and any absences due to sickness. This can be combined with geo-fencing and/or QR code capture, to ensure the employee’s device is in a specific location before clocking in/out is possible. Employees can also use the App to see the balance of their holiday entitlement and request time, with managers able to approve holiday requests.
Accurate, paperless renumeration process
Synergy T&A has been specifically designed to help manage a workforce which includes those who have the freedom to work their contracted hours outside the 9 to 5 norm. Fully customisable work-rule templates provide the ability to capture employee’s work time related data regardless of their individual shift patterns, whilst a set of rules relating to the pay rates for standard working hours, night-time shifts, bank holidays and weekends, can be based on the templates relevant to individual employees.
Integration with payroll systems
Synergy T&A offers integration with a wide range of popular third-party HR, Payroll, Accounting, CRM and ERP/MRP systems including Sage, SAP, Pegasus Cascade and Earnie, to name but a few. This facilitates the exchange of data such as hours worked per employee to be imported or exported for Payroll processing or HR management purposes. Supporting CSV, API or Webservice interfaces, this significantly reduces the time it takes to get the information you need, as well as minimising the need for administration resource.
