Construction – Lakesmere Ltd
Lakesmere is an industry leading roofing, cladding & façade specialist building envelope contractor, delivering many of the construction industry’s most prestigious and award-winning buildings. The Focus Time & Attendance system is used at up to twelve construction sites around the UK, one UK regional office plus two sites in Jedda, Saudi Arabia.
Lakesmere Ltd were specifically looking for the T&A system to provide the following functionality:
- A straight forward to install hardware system that can be moved to different sites without requiring a lengthy installation.
- A battery back up for the hardware to remain operational during a short power outage.
- Reliable communications to the remote sites from head office – independent of broadband and other hardwired telecoms infrastructure.
“We have integrated the facilities of the Focus Timesheets to provide a record of all labour on our sites. This not only provides a reasonable platform for assessing site attendance but also underpins elements of our Health & Safety policy by ensuring that all personnel enrolled onto the system meet our work qualification standards.
“Updating the labour records manually was a significant burden on busy site managers, automating the task has dramatically reduced this waste and provided irrefutable evidence of attendance.
“Egress Systems have provided invaluable technical advice at the start of the project and helped us meet our delivery date for the system on time and under budget. Their continued support and advice has allowed us to overcome significant obstacles when deploying the system worldwide. Egress Systems are a valued member of our supply chain.”
