Eagle Valley Poultry works smart with the help of Beget time and attendance control.
Apart from the expected advantages of tightening control and management of staff work hours, an important motivation for installing time and attendance systems based on fingerprint recognition is the increase in productivity of the person responsible for payroll functions.
“I like to work smart, not hard,” says Jana Mostert, who handles payroll for Eagle Valley Poultry, “and that is exactly what the Beget time and attendance and access control system allows me to do.”
As testimony, Mostert compares her own increase in productivity with her previous place of employment where seven people in payroll carried out the functions that she, alone, can now do in a few hours a day.
“Where I worked prior to joining Eagle Valley five months ago, we had a staff complement of around 150 people. At month end when we received the work timesheets we had to manually count the hours worked by each staff member. It was a nightmare, open to mistakes. Now it takes just a few hours each morning to check the information provided by the Beget time and attendance system and compare against the manual timesheets. The system counts up the hours and overtime worked automatically and I know it is correct.”
Eagle Valley Poultry is part of the Centurion-based Kuipers Group and also includes the subsidiaries of Eagles Rock Feed Mill and Eagles Pride Hatchery. The Skeerpoort poultry processing plant has a throughput of 25 000 chickens per day, a capacity which is expected to double within this year when new production facilities are put in place.
Four BegetBio devices are situated at the turnstiles entering the changing rooms and one unit at the dispatch area. Apart from controlling day staff, the system also identifies the 20 night staff that load trucks ready for early morning deliveries to butchers and supermarkets.
Mostert adds that an added bonus of the Beget system is its simplicity of operation. “I was up and running after only a few hours training.”
