Naranja Packers saved a bundle moving from timesheets to biometric time and attendance technology.
Naranja Packers, a citrus packing facility based in the Limpopo province, employs on average 150 permanent staff and several hundred temporary staff. Keeping track of people on the premises proved difficult for Naranja as it was using a manual, and therefore inaccurate attendance register.
Naranja Packers had made use of time sheets which were never filled out properly, making it nearly impossible for HR and administration staff to keep accurate records of time and attendance.
Overall, Naranja Packers wanted a solution that was easy to maintain, user-friendly and efficient. When it came to looking around for a suitable solution, Naranja Packers went the fastest route they possibly could. The whole project was handled by CI Polokwane and consisted of Sagem MA200 fingerprint scanners integrated with Turnstar turnstiles to control access, as well as the company’s HR and administrative applications.
The expected return from the investment was better attendance management and the ability to pay employees more accurately – especially temporary workers. It was this expectation of measurable returns that convinced management to run with the project.
In terms of measuring success, Naranja decided to take the previous year’s overtime and salary expenses and compare them to the current costs. The results were astonishing.
Naranja Packers is content with the solution. Overall the transition to the new time management and access control solution was seamless and Naranja Packers is still reaping the benefits.
