How Dubai’s sole Pepsi distributor is using Jibble

Their daily challenge in saving time are:

  • Ensuring they were paying employees fairly;
  • Team members forgetting to clock out;
  • Employees unwilling to track time due to the inconvenience;
  • Tracking time spent by the sales team with each client

As DRC began implementing work-from-home for their 200+ employees, it needed an easy way to track staff to understand when they were working. Director of IT, Anas Taraben, whose team overlooks the payment of their staff, needed this system to ensure they were paying employees fairly.

Taraben also had to find a way of ensuring staff would actually clock in properly – staff forgetting or being unwilling to cooperate were identified as potential issues.

The company also had the problem of sales staff who were often out meeting customers. Taraben wanted a way to keep track of how many they were meeting and how long was spent on each customer.

DRC’s solution was Jibble. After onboarding the team, DRC is now able to track employees’ time exactly as needed.

Tracking time seamlessly

Staff are willing to track their time thanks to the ease in clocking in and out. The team can easily clock in through their mobile phones, even without internet. It takes seconds to clock in and out, and managers can see who is clocked in from any device. Attendance data can be verified with facial recognition, so if the system doesn’t recognise the employee, they’re not clocked in. 

Payroll made easy

Timesheets are automatically generated, along with overtime calculations. Taraben’s team submit these timesheets for easy payroll. 

Track the team when they’re on the move

Sales staff now clock in recording the respective customer. Reports are generated to allow managers to understand the time spent per customer and how many meetings are held every day.

Jibble’s GPS geolocation feature gives visibility of the sales person’s location at the time of clock-in to ensure accurate attendance data.

“If you need something cloud-based, with a fast implementation… then this is the right tool.”

How Skanska ensures attendance tracking is easy and safe

Their challenges included:

  • Unable to use central clock-in device due to the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Inaccurate attendance reports of staff and subcontractors;
  • Potentially fraudulent time entries;
  • Lack of real time attendance data required for health and safety compliance and emergencies;

In order to comply with safety regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic, construction staff weren’t able to use their central clock-in system due to the risk of spreading disease. With thousands of employees across multiple sites, Skanska was struggling to ensure that attendance was being recorded safely.

It was also crucial for managers to find a way to record attendance accurately, as it was a requirement for health and safety compliance and emergencies. They needed a system that allowed for safe, easy, and accurate time tracking, without the possibility of fraudulent entries.

Unable to use their central clock-in system for safety reasons, and concerned about attendance accuracy, Skanska decided to switch to an online time clock app instead. Then, they found Jibble.

The solution

Accurate attendance guaranteed

Guided by Jibble’s onboarding team, Skanska quickly got their team started. Employees are now able to clock-in with facial recognition and GPS tracking, which ensures that attendance data is accurate and anti-fraud. The team clocks in within seconds with a selfie. If Jibble doesn’t recognise their face, or if they clock in at the wrong location, an alert is sent to their manager.

Timesheets and reports are automatically generated, and is accessible to managers in real time from the Jibble web app or on their mobile phones. Overtime can also be automatically calculated to make payroll easy.

Working on a construction site, the internet can sometimes be weak. Offline mode allows for employees to continue tracking attendance, even when the internet cuts out.

Increased safety compliance

Skanska employees clock-in through the Jibble app, which they have downloaded on their mobile device. With everyone’s phone being their own personal clock-in device, attendance tracking is now safety compliant.

The bottom line

Without the need for a central clock-in device, and with features like facial recognition and GPS tracking, Jibble ensures time and attendance tracking for Skanska is accurate, safe, and wonderfully easy.
