Leading commercial cleaning company and social enterprise, APP UK, has invested in ‘Timegate’ – a comprehensive workforce management system. The new Timegate system has been implemented across its business.

A cloud based system, Timegate enables APP UK to optimise operational efficiencies, streamline its processes and provides real time performance information which is aligned with KPIs for the business and individual contracts.   Core functions include time and attendance monitoring, automated payroll and roster planning,  a suite of management information metrics, automated employee communications, and operational and audit protocol tracking.

Through the Timegate APP available across all mobile platforms,  APP UK employees have real time access to an HR engagement pack which enables them to submit holiday requests online, communicate directly when remote working, access ‘toolbox training’ and HR information, view pay information and their shift patterns, available overtime opportunities and vacancy details.

Caroline Demoulpied, Managing Director of APP UK, said: “Our investment in Timegate enables us to provide the highest level of support to both our clients and our employees. Clients benefit from a more streamlined and transparent operating system while our team is able to obtain 24/7 access to rostas, handbooks, guides and online training.”

The social enterprise arm of Welsh charitable organisation Platfform, APP UK applies a principled approach to cleaning and facilities management across all parts of its operation.  Its profits are donated to Platfform who work with people who are experiencing challenges with their mental health, and with communities which want to create a greater sense of connection, ownership and wellbeing in the places that they live.
