Time & Attendance

Managing your workforce and workplace in an optimal way can significantly improve your financial bottom line. Implementing TouchStar time & attendance solutions can be the key factor in better management of your employee working hours. We can help reduce administration paperwork and wasted time by capturing critical data automatically and ensuring that data is instantly available and transparent to senior management.


The benefits derived from the adoption of an automated Time & Attendance system will vary depending on your organisations precise working patterns. However, typical benefits include;

  • Simplified Creation of Schedules - The TouchStar time and attendance system can be configured and adapted to include reflect specific production cycles, working practices, flexi-time, shift work and holidays
  • Compliance with Employment & Workplace Legislation - An automated time and attendance system will help ensure that workers’ schedules conform to Legislation relating to permitted working hours, compulsory break times etc.
  • Integration with other core business systems (e.g. 3rd party HR and Payroll systems) - Data can be exported direct to other business systems, eliminating the potential for error caused by data double entry
  • Reduce Absenteeism and improve punctuality - Quantitative real-time data ensures problem areas and absence incidents are readily identified, allowing appropriate action before the situation gets out of hand or becomes a repeat pattern
  • Easy installation - Our Nohmad system operates under GPRS wireless technology, meaning flexible and easy wire-free installation. Units can be provided on a ‘supply only’ or ‘supply & install’ basis.
