Long-standing users of Donseed’s biometric time and attendance system Mitchellson Formwork & Civil Engineering Ltd explain why they replaced paper timesheets with a biometric solution. “Donseed has a range of potential benefits for our business,” said Liam Donoher, Company Accountant at Mitchellson.
He added: “The system enables us to resolve a lot of wage queries quickly and easily as it gives us a huge amount of information; we know who is onsite and when. The financial savings are hard to calculate but I would be confident in saying that we save in excess of one hundred thousand pounds per annum by using Donseed.”
“It also has a nice health and safety tool. We keep individual records for each of our employees and subcontractors on the system, which has helped our health and safety teams considerably. Where accidents have occurred onsite, the team has been able to quickly gain access to up-to-date employee details, Next of Kin contacts and other key information.”
Mitchellson have found that informing clients that they use Donseed can help support bids for new projects.
Kev Dendy, Marketing and Strategy Director at Donseed, said: “We often find that by using Donseed our customers have an edge in a tender process as it demonstrates to clients and main contractors that they operate efficiently, are compliant with their obligations and are a progressive business they want to work with. It’s great that Mitchellson have been on board for so many years and fantastic to hear that they are still benefiting from the system in ways that weren’t foreseen at the implementation stage.”
