Thanks to the scalability of the solution it will initially be deployed at HM Passport Office’s Glasgow site and then be rolled out to the other 6 further HM Passport Office locations throughout the UK.
HM Passport Office purchased Equiniti’s solution via the Government’s G- Cloud procurement framework. As a centrally managed web-based cloud platform, Equiniti’s solution reduces the work involved in recording, planning, managing absence, reporting and auditing plus scheduling of employees who work on a fixed or flexible hours working basis.
Equiniti’s experience in HR and payroll, covers processing payments for NHS trusts and clients include the Scottish Parliament, the Electoral Office of Northern Ireland and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, as well as processing payments for 20 per cent of UK pensioners and supporting 20 per cent of work-based pension schemes.
Nigel Farr, a Director at Equiniti said: “Working patterns have changed dramatically over the last decade and far fewer businesses operate the stereotypical 9-5 hours. Having a time and attendance system that is cloud based is increasing becoming essential in order to accommodate anything from flexible working or remote working to job sharing and hot-desking across locations."
Nigel continuted "Her Majesty’s Passport Office has increased its flexibility and capability to respond to extreme external pressures which have a direct effect on its workforce requirements. This ensures that critical citizen facing services can be easily scaled to meet demand.”
