Luxfer Gas manage their employee time and attendance requirements with Mitrefinch
Luxfer Gas manufacture aluminium cylinders for medical, diving, fire and the beverage industry. At their primary UK site they employ 220 employees, all of whom use the Mitrefinch Time and Attendance system (Mitrefinch TMS).
Christine Thompson, Luxfer Gas' Payroll Manager explains how Mitrefinch has benefited their company:
We went live with Mitrefinch TMS in May 2002, having chosen it because of its apparent ease of use. Since then the system has proved extremely successful. Each day we use it to check overtime shift patterns and all the tasks traditionally associated with a small Payroll Department.
Reduced administrative workload
Mitrefinch TMS has reduced our workload considerably, both for management and employees. A prime example of this is the overtime sheets which were previously completed manually by employees - but can now be downloaded direct from Mitrefinch TMS and signed off by the relevant manager.
We can now print reports showing exactly what shifts have been worked and the information is transferred directly to payroll. There are all sorts of reports and statistics that can be downloaded from Mitrefinch TMS, to be honest it has cut our working time by half!
More time to spend on important payroll issues
Benefits, well there are many...it is instantly possible to determine whether an employee is on or off site, whether they are good timekeepers, how many holidays they have left, details of sickness, fire drills, the list is endless.
My role as a Payroll Manager has changed considerably, now that Mitrefinch TMS is up and running I can devote more time to ensuring our payroll is 100% accurate.
Training was provided onsite, which was a bit of a rush job as the time frame for installation was tight but the Mitrefinch Consultant was really helpful and helped me set up everything. Since then the Support Helpdesk has been absolutely magnificent, nothing is too much trouble for them.
