Visibility of Home Workers Enhanced with Bodet’s New Time and Attendance Software

Leading European time management specialists, Bodet Ltd, have enhanced their Kelio time and attendance software to accommodate staff working at home.

Online PR News – 20-December-2020 – Sandy – To minimise the risk of COVID-19 infection, many employees waived the daily commute to the workplace and now work at home, either full or part time. While this works well for white collar employees, it dramatically reduces visibility of the hours that employees are working and who are absent or on holiday.

To overcome this, Bodet have launched Kelio Version 4.2 which is designed to manage all employees throughout the organisation, whether working on site or at home. Any employee can be allocated as a home worker, and the system has inbuilt flexibility to accommodate employees assigned to homeworking whether on a regular or an occasional basis.

While staff based at headquarters can clock on and off using biometric or card reading terminals, those working at home can use their laptop, tablet or smart phone. There is also a self-service facility which allows employees to request home working, and if approved a confirmatory e-mail is sent to notify the employee. Regular remote workers can also request modification of their usual remote working days via the software.

Kelio V4.2 allows supervisors to customise reports so they can have full visibility of all employees and clearly differentiate between homeworking and absent employees. It can also ensure employees comply with the organisation’s rules for homeworking and clearly display whether an employee is working in accordance with their planned schedule or not.

Bodet’s managing director, Richard Manby commented, “The growth in homeworking will probably stay with us even when the pandemic is over. The versatility in time management which is now available in Kelio V4.2 not only provides accurate employee time records for payroll but will make it easier for managers to plan work schedules and help businesses improve productivity.”
