With over 16,500 staff supporting more than 12,000 residents in over 200 care homes plus 7 independent hospitals, services range from dementia care to more complex health care services. Providing high-quality homes is an integral part of their success, having developed a number of partnerships with health commissioners based on local needs and opportunities. These include building registered hospitals, developing new care pathways and providing care for their patients needs in their registered hospitals and specialised care homes. As a growing business this meant payroll was becoming increasingly difficult to manage and time consuming exercise. Barchester’s concern was being able to find a system that could handle their complex shift patterns, thinking they were forever confined to their manual paper system. As they had heard clocking in systems had not worked successfully at other care homes.
Jackie was more confident in our ability to supply a system they wanted, when she learned we had already worked with a number of care homes including the NHS. It was clear from the demonstration we could satisfy their needs, and found we were extremely attentive and listened to their concerns in a no pressure and relaxed way. Payroll now takes us just a few minutes rather than hours… or sometimes a whole day even. Facetime have revolutionised the way we do payroll. Jackie can now devote more of her time to other important HR matters.
“We currently use a PC linked time and attendance monitoring solution provided by facetime; before this we used a paper based timesheet system which was very time consuming and inaccurate. We have noticed a reduction in the amount of hours paid per month since introducing a pc linked swipe card system.”
