Workforce management with TimePlan eliminates manual calculation for Santander Consumer Bank
“We selected TimePlan because the program was more ambitious than its competitors and it supports the Finance Association’s collective agreements,” says Martin Wennerstrøm, HR Analyst at Santander Consumer Bank.
HR analyst Martin Wennerstrøm introduced TimePlan at GE Money Bank in 2013 and has since taken the program through the merger with Santander Consumer Bank. He is pleased about the fact that TimePlan complies with the Finance Association’s collective agreements, and that it makes everyday life easier for Santander’s employees and management.
”At GE Money Bank, a need had arisen for employee scheduling and a desire to step out of Excel due to increased complexity and audit trails. We looked at three providers, and we selected TimePlan because the program was far more ambitious than its competitors and it supported the Finance Association’s collective agreements,” says Martin Wennerstrøm.
When Santander took over GE Money Bank in 2014, TimePlan became part of the new setup because Santander’s model for shift planning was also based on Excel.
”We implemented TimePlan in stages during the merger, and today, we use the modules for employee scheduling, time tracking with fingerprint readers, absence management, illness and holidays, etc.,” says Martin Wennerstrøm.
Automatic per diem
”All manual calculation of pay supplements has disappeared. We save work hours and wage costs every month. If an employee works in the evening, TimePlan automatically gives them a per diem amount for food. The errors that we used to encounter in Excel are gone too,” says Martin Wennerstrøm.
