Rapidly expanding company Quinn Groundworks and Construction has enhanced its data management capabilities by moving its time and attendance monitoring to the Causeway Donseed biometric labour management system.
Hours worked on site were previously recorded using manual, paper-based timesheets but as the company has grown, so too has the need for a more accurate, reliable and consistent means of capturing this critical data.
The Causeway Donseed system, selected after researching other labour management solutions on the market, uses a rugged and fully portable biometric tablet device that features a certified optical fingerprint sensor to accurately verify the identity of contractors signing in and out of site.
The tablets are all linked to a cloud-based labour management software solution that has been specifically developed for use by construction and is trusted by hundreds of contractors. This gives the team at Quinn the ability to capture accurate time and attendance records, and provides a deep insight into project data, both in real-time and historically.
As such, the Causeway Donseed biometric labour management solution not only tracks time and attendance, but also centralises a whole host of data to help drive business growth, which is particularly important for the team at Quinn.
The company undertakes a variety of civil engineering and groundwork packages across the South East within a 100 mile radius of its Dunstable, Bedfordshire headquarters. Recent years have seen heavy investment in the latest machinery and fleet to support its customers, and this has resulted in more and larger projects.
With 10 sites across the region and teams of between 10 and 20 working every day at each, accurate reporting is essential for many reasons, not least cost control. By upgrading from paper forms to an industry-leading, fully digital biometric tool linked to a cloud-based system, the company now has a modern labour management system that enables them to control costs, reduce time onsite, manage site safety and keep online records of training certifications.
Finally, by enabling Quinn to only pay for actual hours worked using accurate biometric recognition, the Causeway Donseed system will also deliver an excellent return on investment.
