Key Benefits



  • Monitor staff working time

Capture attendance information / detail and eliminate any inaccuracies resulting from multiple time recording devices. This module is completely integrated with chris21 – our Comprehensive Human Resource Integrated Solution – to provide the level of control and information required for effective management of employee attendance and rostering.

Based on the ‘Timesheet’ principle, TA21 is available with interfaces for all time attendance devices – e.g. biometric solutions, magnetic swipe cards and iris recognition. Payroll calculations and payments can then be handled directly via chris21, based on clockings and time interpretations. Alternatively, timing data can also be taken from any software application that is being used to record an employee’s time and attendance.

A complete solution

Total flexibility is a key feature of TA21, so users can configure their system to meet organisation-specific requirements and schedule shift patterns with a minimum of effort. Define the parameters and TA21 automatically creates the rosters.

Options include:

  • Shift Patterns – define each working day in terms of normal, earliest and latest start and finish times. Any grace periods associated with these can be set
  • Work Patterns – an unlimited number of Standard, Rotating Shift, Flexitime and Time Driven patterns can be defined
  • Break Profiles – enter start and finish times and specify whether breaks are paid / unpaid / clocked or assumed
  • Overtime Profiles / Management Totals – define the rules relating to overtime attendance and payment calculations
  • Management Reporting – a variety of totals are maintained within the product and the report designer facilitates management reporting
  • Generated Pay Rates – specify pay rates based on customer entered formulas
  • Payment Rules – define allowances and payments for different working conditions and awards

Intelligence at your fingertips

Interpret employee timing data intelligently by setting system parameters and TA21 will highlight overtime, absence, lateness and total hours worked.

Timings can be entered using a variety of attendance devices or simply via a desktop PC. Managers and supervisors are able to review employee hours worked and decide whether to approve any automatically-generated overtime. Data is electronically passed to the payroll department – where chris21 then completes the payroll process.
