Successful workforce management is one most of the biggest challenges in running a modern  business. Tracking and scheduling employees working time, having an easy access to their personal data, and being able to analyze attendance records helps getting the most out of your people.

Baycoat Limited – a subsidiary of , the fifth largest steelmaker in the world, understands it well.

After years of using excel spreadsheets and an old mainframe system which was so slow that they reverted to using paper and pen to track employee attendance, the company decided to invest in a computerized HR system.

A new, more efficient system which could show who was onsite at any given time to increase employee safety was required.

According to the company’s HR Manager, Kathy Lefroy, Mitrefinch system was chosen by a combination of factors – the impressive functionality, the integrated report writer and the price.

Baycoat Limited bought the integrated Mitrefinch , and . The system now caters for 160 full time and 16 temporary staff onsite. After some initial resistance to the new system, employees are now pleased with the setup as they have access to their own work records.

The TMS has proved flexible and Mrs. Lefroy has been able to customize both the system and its reports to suit company needs. Report errors have been eliminated because employees have been able to view their own work records and therefore catch errors before they reach the payroll.

Overall, saved hours spent on administration, improved employees’ safety at Baycot Limited and  Mrs. Lefroy has indicated that she will carry on using it into the future.
