Before using biometric technology on site, Mitchellson Formwork & Civil Engineering Ltd were relying on old-fashioned paper timesheets to collate time and attendance records. The business has now implemented the Causeway Donseed cloud-based solution and has made significant financial savings.

Micthellson's Journey to Reliable Biometric Timesheets


Long-standing users of the Causeway Donseed biometric labour management solution, Mitchellson Formwork & Civil Engineering Ltd, explain why they replaced paper timesheets with a biometric solution.

“Causeway Donseed has a range of potential benefits for our business,” said Liam Donoher, Company Accountant at Mitchellson.

He added: “The system enables us to resolve a lot of wage queries quickly and easily as it gives us a huge amount of information; we know who is onsite and when. The financial savings are hard to calculate but I would be confident in saying that we save in excess of one hundred thousand pounds per annum."

“It also has a nice health and safety tool. We keep individual records for each of our employees and subcontractors on the system, which has helped our health and safety teams considerably."

"Where accidents have occurred onsite, the team has been able to quickly gain access to up-to-date employee details, Next of Kin contacts and other key information.”

One of the unintended benefits Mitchellson also found is that informing their clients that they use the Causeway Donseed’s biometric labour management solution can help support bids for new projects.
