On 1 October 2014 the mandatory attendance registration on construction sites, the so-called “checkinatwork”, was launched. From then on, in order to be compliant with this new legislation, construction companies need to report the times their employees are working on a daily basis. Benny Vandevenne, COO at Cegelec in Zwijndrecht, says: “We were worried we needed to employ additional administrative personnel and would have an increased error rate.
That’s why we chose to automate our checkinatwork.”
This new tool needed to meet a number of demands. First of all, it had to be implemented in a very short period of time. Then, it also needed to be user- friendly for all employees. Moreover, everyone needed to be able to use the tool; employees who are able to register in their company vehicle as well as employees who use public transport, their motorcycle or their bicycle to reach the construction site.
