Clipfine has provided construction support services since 1975. In the 90s they identified the lack of integration between materials handling, waste removal, welfare provision and logistics operations. They recognised that the amalgamation of these services would lead to safer and more efficiently organised building projects.
They responded by restructuring their business to meet this essential need for clients and in recent years they have further expanded their portfolio by adding Construction Management, Security and Facilities Maintenance services.
Clipfine have a large number of security operatives all of whom need to be SIA licensed. The process of checking their SIA licence status and managing all the related data was manual and consisted mainly of maintaining multiple spreadsheets and using the SIA online checker.
This was both time consuming and prone to error, leaving Clipfine open to the risk of employing unlicensed guards or staff who no longer had the right to work in the UK. The possible penalties to their business in the way of fines for employing unlicensed operatives are severe.
The SIA themselves recommend that all operatives should be licence checked at a minimum at least weekly but their online checker whilst allowing registered users to upload and check a spreadsheet is manual and cumbersome at best.
SecuriSure Staff Manager completely automates the process of checking our operatives SIA licence status. We get a daily email that advises us of the current status and gives us plenty of notice of soon to expire licences, visas and LDN’s.
When we imported our data and SIA checked them for the first time we did see a large number of problems including revoked and expired licences and name mismatches.
This low cost solution is simple and yet powerful and enables at a glance visualisation of our workforce compliance. Since using SBM we no longer have to worry about whether our security operatives are compliant, we’ve saved money by just managing the exceptions and freed up time to focus on more important tasks.
It’s like insurance but better.
