The challenge:

  • Replace ageing time card system.

  • Improve flexibility and versatility of the system.

  • Automate as much of the time-logging process as possible.

Our conclusion:

After the initial meeting with the DEP team we realised how much time and effort went into the management of the punch-card time logging system. SAES went to work on designing a flexible and efficient replacement.


It wasn’t long before we presented the Paxton timesheet system to DEP. We installed a PC-based, UK-manufactured proximity card system which staff use to clock-in and -out throughout the day. Not only does this system require a single card for the life of the employment or system but the data is it gathers is held centrally and calculated automatically; saving both time and resources.


Additionally, the same software and clocking cards can be used to limit access around the building to sensitive rooms or machines.


The next project we are investigating with DEP is energy saving readers which require the clocking card to be inserted during working hours and removed when the workstation is left. This disconnects power to the work area when staff are not in attendance making the area safe and reducing energy costs.

The solution:

  • Paxton timesheet system.

  • PC-based proximity card system.

  • Data compiled by the system integrates with seamlessly with HR system, enabling staff sickness, holidays and more to be managed from a single platform.
