Staff Timetable

This function provides insight to shifts and punches (clocking in/out) and adjustments made, amended, deleted or added. Manual entries may be made due to the employee working off site, or forgetting to punch in as required by your company policy. Once verified, this information can be locked and treated as approved for use in payroll.

Simply navigate between days, weeks, sites and locations to view all shifts and see digital or manual punches made.

Features include:

  • Adding a shift
  • Amending a shift
  • Adding a punch
  • Amending a punch/re-assigning to a different shift
  • Deleting a punch
  • Adding a shift adjustment
  • Deleting a shift adjustment
  • Shift Locking

Rota Planning

The rota is used to plan upcoming future shifts. Access can be restricted to the required authority or responsibility. This could mean that a rota planner can only see their department or only be able to rota pre-defined shifts for an employee.

Simply select a shift to be allocated to roles/employees for any given day and ensure through dynamic tallies that shifts cover specific requirements for the site, location and support provided by role.

Select from a range of standard shifts from the role or create a custom role to deal with any known requirements.

Once created, shifts can be seen by all employees, suppliers, temps or agency staff.

Note that if a rota is not used, shifts are automatically created based on punches.

Absence/Holiday Management

Absence records can be added to the system to plan and record holidays, sickness and other absences. These can be reported on to show an employee’s absence records for a period and control holiday entitlement.

Standard reason codes for absence can cover sickness, authorised / unauthorised, dependent or compassionate leave or a scheduled appointment. Leave can be based on exact duration – not half or full days. A range of absence choices are available within the system – but customisation to suit your business needs can be easily achieved through your own system administrator.

Features include:

  • Add an absence
  • Add Annual Leave
  • Deleting an absence record
  • Amending an absence record


Set budgets by site for each role to provide target for hourly and financial monitoring.

Available for key users only, budgets will be available in rota planning to ensure shift planning can be tailored and budgets targeted. Known under / over spend can be known earlier and corrective action taken. Removes the need for manual notes or spreadsheets and is available more widely and easily understandable.

Example site-based budget by Job Role or Group

Roll Call Management

Know who is presently onsite who has digitally or manually checked / punched in for their shifts. Information is provided by site, location or role. Critical list generation for emergency roll call or message creation through the messaging tool

Payroll Outputs

All entered hours and shifts can be validated, amended or deleted as required before locking for payroll processing.

Users can be assigned hourly rates in order to calculate gross pay entitlements and additional allowances can be included for specific shifts.

Once timetables are believed to be locked, the payroll run routines can be carried out with the system highlighting any issues with shifts or data. Once run, changes to payroll can only be carried out manually to make adjustments, set forward pay or add notes.

Forward pay will be automatically calculated from shifts that are after the last full day and up to (and including) the end of the pay period if they have been added to the rota.

A download/upload function is available for adjustments in the event that offline editing is required however, any and all adjustments can be completed within the system.

  • Fix and finalise payroll by site, location, role or period

  • Add, amend or delete forward pay calculations
