Time and Attendance Brochure

Calculating elapsed time from day 1

In the 1980s ELF Productivity Ltd, provided work study engineers to evaluate business processes within the manufacturing and engineering sectors. Often deploying the early Ceequel® suite of products to streamline these processes and provide invaluable data when comparing actuals to standards.

Sector growth

Due to the infinite configurability of Ceequel® Time Management, we soon gained traction in other sectors and began to earn the reputation of no matter what your rules, Ceequel® will deal with it!

Moving with the times

As IT infrastructures, servers, communications and PCs became more powerful so did Ceequel®. During the 1990's Ceequel® became one of the first Time and Attendance systems to be deployed across Wide Area Networks. Thus allowing for multi-company reporting and centralisation of key systems.

It's good to share

As we push on to the future the Ceequel® portfolio continues to expand encompassing Access Control, Human Resource Management, Employee Self Service, Employee Tracking, Activity Based Costing, Machine monitoring, Performance Reporting, Shop Floor Data Capture and other browser-based options. This provided unparalleled functionality but most importantly this was delivered from a single database.

Play it safe

The technological world is forever changing, at ELF Productivity Ltd we take this very seriously. As an ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 registered company we ensure we are ahead of the game.
