Thetford stays on track with Grosvenor Terminals

28  Thetford 1Leading camping and travelling suppliers Thetford have been able to greatly improve their workforce management processes with the introduction of a time and attendance & access control system, including a number of advanced workforce management terminals from Grosvenor Technology.

Following the rapid growth of production at their main manufacturing site, Thetford’s existing workforce management system was no longer up to task of monitoring ever increasing staff. To replace it, the company contacted system integrators Atimo® Personeelstechniek B.V. who developed a tailored package combining its own Time-Wize® software and server with seven terminals from Grosvenor Technology, amongst them the RS 07 access control and the RS 21 time and attendance terminals.

These terminals offered a flexible solution, combining robust design and industry leading features. Their modular back-panel allowed the terminals to be quickly wired up and securely connected to the local network via Ethernet, saving cost and reducing disruption for staff.

The Time-Wize® server can be accessed on several designated network PC’s at the facility and along with the clear administrative advantages such as simple report generation, the new system also offers a range of day-to-day benefits for workers. Clocking-in is seamlessly completed by swiping tokens over the RS 21 time and attendance terminal’s easy-fit reader module and by using the terminal function keys, employees can also indicate the reason for absences and monitor their remaining holiday entitlement and overtime on the display.

Jozé van Schaik, Director at Atimo commented: “We’ve worked with Grosvenor Technology’s products for a number of years, and its terminals are our preferred choice for use with our own Time-Wize® software. The terminals are extremely reliable, offer extensive functionality and can be combined with any reader technology, allowing us to deliver a carefully tailored solution for each client.”

Grosvenor Technology’s RS Series range of terminals have been developed to suit all budgets. The terminals are highly customisable and support a wide range of plug-in modules including card readers and biometric technology to suit the workforce’s requirements.
