Lloyd Fraser driving for stronger workforce

Lloyd Fraser (Supply Chain),  a leading third party distribution company in Europe, has chosen Smart Human Logistics, provider of workforce management solutions, to implement a highly scalable, fully hosted time and attendance solution for its 850 workforce.

Lloyd Fraser will be using biometric hand readers for 750 of its staff for monitoring attendance. Telephone clocking will be used for 100 remote staff ensuring control across the entire workforce. The system will allow Lloyd Fraser to accurately plan and roster its workforce through automated roster cover. The shift swap functionality will also benefit the employees and the business through increased flexibility.

Phil Cotterell, commercial manager at Lloyd Fraser comments: “Smart’s workforce management solution will support our business by allowing us to respond quickly to increases in customer demand. Being an extremely labour intensive organisation, we needed to utilise our staff efficiently. Smart’s solution will allow us to actively plan and deploy the workforce productively for the business. It will ensure tighter processes, reduced administration and payroll costs, increased customer satisfaction and the competitive benefit of a more agile organisation”.
