Lighthouse Healthcare chooses Interflex to cut labour costs and improve efficiency
Lighthouse Healthcare can now accurately schedule and monitor staff hours from their sites across the Midlands using an Interflex system from Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies.
Using their Interflex time and attendance system Lighthouse Healthcare are able to plan shifts quickly and easily ensuring the correct skill and gender mix is met. This has meant that they have been able to reduce the amount of money spent on agency staff and also monitor that the hours worked by staff are in line with their contracts.
In addition the system has been linked to biometric hand readers meaning that staff can only ‘clock in’ for themselves and absenteeism is more visible. This attendance information is then used to generate accurate payroll data – removing staff queries and disputes.
Tobi Gowers, Finance Director at Lighthouse Healthcare, comments: “We’re very pleased with how the system is set up and used. We needed consistent procedures across the group for shift planning, absence management and payroll generation which is what Interflex has given us - with the added benefit that we have been able to modify the system to provide sufficient information to utilise it as an HR database. We’ve received great support during the planning and implementation process and, now that the system has gone live, continue to do so on a day-to-day basis.”
Lighthouse Healthcare provides specialist support and rehabilitation services across eight facilities in England and Wales, employing over 600 staff.
