hfx system helps enterprising town council to manage working hours and improve administration of staff payroll

hfx, a leading provider of workforce time management solutions, has announced that Shrewsbury Town Council is using hfx’s Flexitime® Management system to manage staff working hours. The Council is using the electronic system to record hours worked and holidays for all members of staff, including outreach youth workers. Since using the system the Council claims more efficient and accurate administration of staff hours, including recording of overtime, sickness and holiday entitlements providing a more streamlined approach. Shrewsbury Town Council chose hfx’s system for its easy to use interface and accessibility for staff from a range of devices provided by the Council, including desktop terminals, laptops and tablets.

Ruth Jones, Office Manager at Shrewsbury Town Council said; “hfx’s Flexitime Management system was easy and clear to use and matched our requirements. It stood out from the competitors - the team understood the requirements of our organisation and had proven experience of working in our sector.

“Since using the system the recording of employee attendance is more streamlined and we can monitor holiday entitlements accurately. It puts our staff in control of their hours and frees our staff from manual management and tracking. In addition the reports will be invaluable in enabling us to identify and proactively manage the service requirement.”

Through enabling staff to work more flexibly the Council has seen efficiency gains. hfx’s Flexitime Management system also provides organisations with the facility to support staff who work outside of the office or from home, to register absence and manage their leave allowances by clocking in and out remotely.

Nick Whiteley, Managing Director of hfx stated: “Like all public services, Shrewsbury Town Council is challenged to serve its community under ever increasing financial pressures. Remote working and more flexible approaches to staffing also present increasingly complex management challenges. Our system has been designed for organisations like the Council to manage working hours and ensure accurate compensation while delivering optimum services. The added reporting functionality helps the Council to ensure staff wellbeing and meet employment legislation through proactive management.”

hfx integrates with all the mainstream HR systems (including Oracle, SAP, MHR, PeopleSoft, Northgate and Software for People), enabling organisations to manage flexible working, while keeping employee data synchronised across HR and payroll systems.
