Importing & Distribution – JVL Homeware Solutions
JVL were founded in 1988 specialising in importing, manufacturing and distributing doormats, basketware and other specialised products. Today they are a leading UK supplier to many leading national and independent retailers.
JVL were specifically looking for the T&A system to provide the following functions:
- Be able to produce an up to date Fire Alarm Evacuation Report
- Be able to see who is on or off site at any time.
“Focus Time & Attendance obviously provides an accurate record of hours on-site for payroll purposes. The feature which benefits most users, and saves time searching for colleagues, is the highly visible Watch panel. This gives a live record of who is on the premises at any given time. Individuals can see at a glance who is out to lunch or working late, it makes our switchboard role so much easier.
“The main way that Focus has saved us time and money is its reliability. Our previous system required daily maintenance by IT staff and many hours and days of restoring lost information when the system failed. In 4 years we haven’t lost a single hour of my time to support and Focus continues to record our clocking, even when the network is down.
“The installation took place 4 years ago, it wasn’t particularly memorable so it must have been painless. The support services have been non-existent, not in a bad way, it’s just that we’ve never needed them…
“We don’t use all the features and functions of Focus, but those we do use are so easy to view and simple to use. I can’t think of another application I’ve used in the last 10 years that has been so reliable or required so little maintenance. If its functionality is what you’re looking for I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.”
