SAVING OUR CUSTOMERS MILLIONS OF POUNDS EACH YEAR BY IMPROVING EFFICIENCY, PRODUCTIVITY AND SECURITY
HUNTAPAC PRODUCE LTD
Huntapac Produce Ltd, a fruit and vegetable supplier to major food chains across the UK, including Tesco and Morrissons, were experiencing a loss in time on manufacturing lines, costing them a huge annual revenue loss.
One of the biggest problems Huntapac experienced was staff taking significantly longer breaks than allocated. In order to stop this from happening, NT Security stepped in to provide a cost effective solution. Fitting 3D Finger Biometric Readers with Interflex IF 6020 Time and Access solutions, NT was able to find an efficient way to stop this revenue loss.
The new system means employees now use biometric fingerprint readers to record their break times, meaning Huntapac is now control of any pay deductions for staff taking a longer than allocated break time.
When installing the new system, NT came across some difficulties due to Huntapac’s headquarters having underfloor heating, meaning NT was unable to drill into the floor. In order to overcome this, NT suspended a platform a few millimetres off the floor meaning there was no need to drill into the flooring and risk any pipe bursts.
It is now estimated that Huntapac save approximately £300,000 a year thanks to the new system which resulted in a return of investment in less than six months.
THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN EFFECTIVE IN ACHIEVING OUR REQUIREMENTS BY PROVIDING A GREATER CONTROL ON COSTS FROM BOTH AGENCY AND HUNTAPAC STAFF.- STEPHEN SHIELDS, TECHNICAL DIRECTOR, HUNTAPAC PRODUCE LTD
