Less Time To Manage Flexitime

South Ayrshire Council is using the latest flexitime workforce management system from HFX, a provider of workforce time management products.

The Council replaced its previous flexitime system (also from HFX) with the latest workforce management platform to gain more features and flexibility to manage working hours.

Using HFX, the Council now manages flexitime for 1,250 employees across a wide-range of departments including health and social care, legal department, senior managers, trading standards, planning and environmental health services.

The staff log their working hours between the hours of 8:00am and 6:00pm using booking terminals in the main office buildings. The Council can also offer staff the option of flexitime for those working from home or in the smaller offices, as they can log in via their computers or browser on their smartphone.

Councillor Peter Henderson, South Ayrshire Council’s Portfolio Holder for Resources and Performance said the upgrade was working well: “We’re very pleased with the new system, which is adaptable, intuitive and easier to use for staff and management.

“Managers can configure controls to enable employee access to certain building and office areas at set times of the day and week using card readers.

“The system requires less input and administration and is more streamlined. It gives more control to the employee for their working hours and managers understand what they’re doing.”

The latest generation of HFX solutions are cloud-based, making them quick to install, easy to provision and cost effective to run.

HFX workforce management solutions include flexitime management, access control, time and attendance and Everyone Cloud which is integrated portal enabling anyone, anywhere to clock in and out using any device. hfx solutions are fully compatible with all mainstream HR, Payroll and Human Capital Management systems.
