Shireburn Launches Indigo Insights

Insights is a new data dashboard embedded in the administrator’s portal of Shireburn’s payroll, HR and attendance management solution, Indigo. This new feature leverages Microsoft’s PowerBI, allowing Indigo users to analyse their employee data via powerful graphs and visuals, right from the Indigo portal.

Organisations and HR Teams that are able to leverage data effectively will be at a competitive advantage when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent. Such analysis of payroll data also allows you to gain an understanding of key operational metrics that affect overall company efficiency and profitability. The easy-to-use dashboard provides real-time insights into how your organisation is performing. It is an invaluable tool for companies who want to make more informed decisions about their workforce.

Current Indigo clients will now have access to a number of free dashboards such as a high-level summary dashboard as well as dashboards relating to age and gender. Clients can also upgrade their subscription to the newly launched Indigo Insights Premium which will allow users to have access to data dashboards such as headcount, employee turnover, leave and payroll costs.

Most organisations are sitting on a goldmine of data but are not leveraging it to its full potential. Fill in the form below to get in touch with the Shireburn team to start using Indigo Insights, allowing you to gain invaluable insights into your workforce and operation.

Autogenerating Clocking Data

This feature in Indigo Attendance may be used when a user needs to generate the correct allocations and assign automatic rewards and penalties based on the shifts found in the Scheduler. All this can be done automatically – without the need for the user to import or create clocking data and then spend time checking all of it manually before sending to Indigo Payroll!

There are multiple benefits associated with using the attendance auto generation feature in Indigo Attendance; since the whole process is automatic, users can benefit from minimised clicks within Indigo Attendance, reducing the effort and time spent on processing clocking data and human error significantly. This means that users can use the time saved on other tasks.

Start using autogenerated clocking data to save time and improve your workflow with Indigo!

Introducing Indigo’s NEW Timeline view!

Our Indigo team is proud to introduce a visual view in Indigo Attendance to help you process attendance exceptions more easily. The new Gantt chart visual, added to the Daily Attendance Exceptions Allocations modal under the ‘Timeline’ tab, aims to help provide a deeper, but simple understanding as to how an employee’s clocking and schedule information is calculated by Indigo Attendance.

This intuitive visual depicts an employee’s clockings against the schedule (or work profile) for a particular day; with attendance times, allocated break, any absence or excess, and leave utilised for that day too. Any tolerances allocated for late arrival or early departure can also be viewed easily in this chart.

This information will help you easily view how the system allocates an employee’s attendance data to understand why the record has been flagged as an exception.

Introducing Indigo’s NEW Time Tracking Add-on!

Whether your company is in a service business, or simply works on different client assignments, it is sometimes required to keep track of the hours worked per project.

Time tracking can be a key element within an organisation as it sheds light on how much time is spent on client work, which can then be billed accordingly. Keeping track of time manually can be quite time-consuming to businesses so our team made this easier for you.

You can now keep track of how much time is worked on a project by using Indigo’s NEW time tracking add-on. Upon configuring the right settings, employees can select a project when clocking in for work using the employee portal. This makes it possible to automatically log and follow time worked on specific projects.

This add-on also integrates fully with our clocking devices. When importing clocking data into Indigo, administrators can set the default project for a device. This is useful when a device is tied to a specific project, and on which all employees’ punches would only apply to that project.

All project-related clocking data and the relevant employee hourly cost rate can be easily extracted into reports based on either the raw punches or the daily attendance. The latter allows you to identify any overtime which can be attributed to a project.

Indigo’s BambooHR integration simplifies your workflow

Utilising our Indigo Suite gives you more time to focus on your people.

Ever since we’ve teamed up with BambooHR – one of the leading HR software solutions providers, we’ve learned that whilst some companies use it as an HR tool to manage essential employee information, others also use it to keep track of their employees’ leave request entries and leave balances. During Payroll period, these balances are manually inserted into Indigo Payroll so that the correct calculations are carried out before pay day. Although tedious, this step is required by many so as to keep both Indigo and BambooHR up to date.

We’ve facilitated this process and enhanced our integration with BambooHR to enable you to export leave request entries and leave balances from Indigo directly to BambooHR. This update will help users keep focus on their people, by simplifying and reducing time-consuming processes, whilst retaining peace of mind that BambooHR and Indigo remain in sync.
