Bridgend County Borough Council saves £20k with Progression AEC

Bridgend County Borough Council Environmental & Planning Services Directorate’s use of the Progression AEC Electronic Time Capture facility has enabled them to make a saving of £20,000 on the cost of staffing their Central Administration Department.

The department provides administrative, personnel and finance support to four others within the Council: Planning, Transportation & Engineering, Public Protection and Architectural & Technical Services. In addition they have the challenge of keeping track of the time commitments of around 270 staff, many of whom are spread across the county and out on site projects.

The Directorate purchased the RedSky IT Electronic Time Capture module, ETCi, two years ago when they wanted to lower costs by reducing the resource required to input timesheets every week. Since the new system has been introduced 230 personnel submit their timesheets electronically, saving the Council £20,000 in staffing costs due to the reduction in administrative tasks.

Gary Ennis, Head of the Central Administration Services, explains, “The system has become a much more important tool over the last couple of years. We are now at a point where we can decrease resources. We have been able to reduce the number of staff by one in the Directorate, effectively saving around £20,000 off the budget.”

Clearly the use of this system over the last two years has had a positive impact on an organisation dealing with many different staff and clients, from Council departments to external organisations. With many different projects to track, and so many field-based staff, managers we now know exactly where they are in terms of both project budgets and manpower, thanks to the use of this new IT system. Gary Ennis concludes, “There is no doubt that this product has made a big difference.”
