Touch Screen Terminals:
We also provide the option of touch screen terminals. These are particularly useful where employees may not have their own PC/terminal. Often, the touch screens are located in communal areas such as canteens. Employees can query hours worked, leave etc on the system facilitating employee empowerment and reducing routine queries to HR/Payroll departments.
Organisational benefits are considerable including greatly reduced manual input and calculations along with accurate, organisation wide information available at the touch of a button. Legal obligations are also fulfilled with the ability to produce a wide range of reports such as the Working Time Act Directive report.
Employee benefits are also considerable. Employees find our solutions open and democratic and enjoy the benefits of our empowerment self service modules. Where flexi time is introduced, the ability to work flexible hours greatly improves work life balance for employees resulting in increased job satisfaction
With demanding schedules, part time personnel and potential 24 hour operations, our software is the ideal solution to handling the time management requirements of retail organisations. We pride ourselves on providing the sector with solutions that withstand the test of time, hugely simplify the tasks of HR and Payroll departments while assisting floor managers in optimum staff deployment.
We provide excellent leave management and 'passive' time and attendance / flexi time systems for the Financial Services Sector. This dramatically reduces administrative burden, ensures legislative compliance and provides a wide range of organisational and employee empowermnnent benefits.
We understand the complex and detailed requirements of the healthcare sector. This includes Clear Time Optimum Roster Management which allows for automated roster and leave management greatly reducing administrative burden. In addition, the system vastly improves roster clarity and accessibility for all employees.
We are providing time and attendance solutions into many of the UK's leading manufacturing/distribution organisations. Solutions range from simple time and attendance systems with swipe/proximity card clocks, to web enabled touch screens and biometric clocking solutions.
We have built up considerable expertise in the local government sector supplying systems to many of Irelands' leading County Councils. This has led to the development of a specific software offering for the sector called 'ClearTime for Local Government'
We understand the needs of Government departments well having worked with many different Departments and Bodies over the years. We provide excellent solutions for this sector in both Time and Attendance and Flexi Time. Clocking solutions include PC clocking, Web clocking and Clock terminals (Biometric and Card Swipe).

The need for accurate workforce data and analytics are more important then ever and NorthgateArinso's Time & Attendance solution provides comprehensive reporting as well as the ability to deal with sophisticated and/or unusual rosters, along with management reporting and analysis.
NorthgateArinso offers a simple yet comprehensive system for Time & Attendance recording, leave management, flexi time monitoring and resource planning.
The right technology can make attendance recording an accurate and efficient process that generates valuable management information allowing you to focus on your core business.
Counting the cost of absenteeism
Absenteeism is considered to be a significant cost by nearly all businesses, employee absence can take many forms; from illness to holidays, maternity and paternity leave and even persistent lateness or leaving early. All these collectively can all add up. By utilising an efficient T&A Solution you can not only measure this but effectively help reduce absenteeism and help control bottom line figures.
Although labour turnover is inevitable, if not managed correctly it can lead to spiralling costs and if the reasons for high staff turnover are not recognised and addressed a businesses ability to meet its objectives can be seriously compromised. A Time & Attendance solution allows the management to not only record staff turnover but also report/measure/track and help make the necessary decions.
Offering employees flexible working not only makes an employer a more attractive proposition, flexible workers tend to outperform their traditional full-time colleagues in terms of productivity, but the positive impact on recruitment, retention and reduced absenteeism enables companies to adapt more effectively to changing market conditions. With an effective T&A solution, you can control your staffs working hours effectively and efficiently.
