Alongside ensuring contractors follow site protocol, this has also enabled Bericap to accurately track on-site hours of contractors for invoicing purposes. The organisation can now determine how long contractors were on-site for callouts and ensure their invoice reflects this, with data pulled from InVentry. Paul Cooper, Quality and CI manager explained, “We get charged by the hour for our contractors so if we get an invoice that say’s they were on site for 6 hours and they have signed in and out with InVentry, we can approve the invoice based on this information. This has really helped to eliminate any discrepancies around contractor payments as we have something to refer to!”
This feature has also been greatly beneficial for tracking attendance for temporary and agency staff working across their site.
Being able to streamline operations and utilise resources was key for Bericap UK, therefore the ability to receive host ready notifications as part of their InVentry offering was a highlight for the manufacturing company. Working within a noisy environment, communication between the main entrance and the Operations team was restricted, which was an issue for the business as it meant visitors were often left waiting to be greeted by the correct staff member.
With the introduction of Host ready notifications, when a booked visitor now signs into the main InVentry system, the relevant team member is instantly notified via text, eliminating wait time for visitors, improving their experience, and increasing efficiency for Bericap UK.
