Implementing Focus has proven to reduce the amount absences taken within an organisation. One recent study showed a percentage absence reduction from 2.26% to 1.28%.
Employees’ pay time can be automatically reduced for clocking in late or clocking out early, thus reducing a company’s wage bill. This has a knock on effect of reducing occurrences of lateness as employees are more vigilant in ensuring they arrive for work on time to avoid being penalised.
By applying shift rules automatically, Focus provides high improvements in both efficiency and accuracy. Significant time may be saved in preparing payroll.
Focus Pro provides a central system to plan and monitor absences. The availability screen helps department managers to maintain minimum staffing levels, ensuring productivity does not suffer and reducing the likelihood of drafting in additional staff to use as cover. The Bradford Factor report highlights employees with disruptive absence histories. Such employees can be very costly to a business. Patterns of absence can easily observed through the Calendar screen, e.g. Friday absences.
Exporting to Payroll
Focus Pro can export to various payroll packages. Using this facility will reduce time spent doing manual data entry and will subsequently improve accuracy.
Consideration of Shift Rules
While initially setting up Focus Pro it is very common for organisations to consider their existing shift rules. It is at this stage that idiosyncrasies and anomalies in the shifts are discovered. Often, a company will take this opportunity to re-examine their rules to ensure they are both fair but also without any loop-holes that could be exploited by an employee. Multiple Site Management: A centrally installed Focus system improves efficiency in collecting data from remote location, as well as avoiding many duplicated tasks at each site.
Management of Breaks
Focus can assist with maximising work time by monitoring the lengths of breaks. Rules can be applied to penalise employees who over-run their allotted break time.
By providing an accurate record of employee start and finish times, Focus can therefore be used to confirm claims of overtime worked.
Focus can include door access control functionality. This can provide a large cost and administrative saving over having separate systems.
