The Real-Link system easily addressed this by generating real-time data, showing where each employee had been and when they had been there. The system also provided options to record what has been done in each location.
Clients are even given their own system logon so that they can check this information at any time, providing complete transparency between CFS and their clients. This level of transparency helps to create a positive relationship and avoid disputes about the service provided.
In addition to proving attendance, CFS is using the Real-Link system to counter insurance claims. As well as providing proof that an employee has been at a certain location, CFS also use the Real-Link system to document any issues that they encounter such as trip hazards and the action that was taken.
This provides invaluable evidence to counter any claim of trips, slips or falls.
Jack Martin, Managing Director of CFS has stated that the use of Real-Link has meant that “Insurance claims can be countered easier and more effectively”
Furthermore, we were able to improve communication and increase efficiency for the CFS team.
If a member of staff discovers graffiti or a maintenance issue, they can detail this in a digital report and send it out immediately via the system. With real-time reporting, it means that CFS can take the action required quicker, providing a more effective and transparent service to their clients.
