Roster Option

by msecadm4921

Organising schedules, rostering staff, monitoring attendance, assessing employee suitability for a post and calculating pay rules are the stuff of nightmares

Knowing where a guard is, if he has booked on, where he has booked on and for what purpose is essential information. If someone doesn’t turn up for duty, you need to know about it, and fast. So says Roy Ferris, Managing Director of RCS, the makers of the RotaWin security scheduling system, who have brought out peoplehours. The company has distribution rights to SecVet employee security screening software. That can link into peoplehours, meaning that data need only be keyed once. Based on Microsoft ASP.NET technology, peoplehours is web-based. All that’s required, the firm says, is a PC with a broadband connection. Once a schedule has been created, employees can book-on and off the system whether using mobile phone, PDA, telephone or a PC connected to the internet. Once connected to CallTaker, the employee enters his personal number with his SIN code (site identification number) to book-on or off the system. The software cross-references this information against the schedule and creates a record of time and attendance for each employee. For smaller organisations, RCS adds, MobileSupervisor displays information via a handheld device – suitable for those without manned control centres.
