The organisation Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Insurance Company of Europe Limited (SJNKE) deals with non-life insurance. With approximately 150 members of staff across Europe, SJNKE’s European head office is based in London (EC2M).
Pre-Cascade SJNKE did not have a personnel information system. The most useful and accurate information was held either on a series of Excel spreadsheets or within paper-based personnel files.
Time and attendance was recorded via a biometric scanner, which was temperamental and very unreliable. SJNKE was also looking to implement a flexi-time system, which simply wouldn’t have worked with the previous setup.
As SJNKE had successfully rolled out Cascade HR within the London Head office, they looked into Cascade’s Timesheets module and were excited about the potential benefits that the company might receive.
During the initial stages, Cascade and SJNKE had the challenge of how to import the time and attendance data into their existing HR Software, as they wanted to use the current entry system. Working with the team at Cascade, they started to investigate the possibility of using the third party data clock load and have been delighted with the results. They have now been using this setup for over two years and it works perfectly. They also managed to include the flexi-time features on the timesheets, giving the company accurate information at the touch of a few buttons and allowing them to run reports and manage flexi-time with ease.
Historically, time and attendance data could only be viewed weekly. However, using Cascade’s Timesheets module, employees can view the data daily, anywhere, anytime, using Cascade’s .NET software. This provides managers with all the time and attendance data they could possibly require, for anyone in their team, at any time. Previously the data was entered manually into another system. This is now done automatically, which significantly reduces the amount of time spent by the HR department on time and attendance data entry.
SJNKE is extremely pleased with Cascade – it has allowed them to move away from the paper pushing exercises previously carried out. Information is readily available to all those who require it and valuable reports can be compiled as and when required. Various workflows also allow SJNKE to manage holidays, visas and absences. This is one happy client, who would be happy to recommend Cascade and the Timesheets module to other organisations.
