Functions specific to guarding services

The software comes with functions and tools specific to guarding services. The software allows two types of job scheduling: the so called service order and programmed guard tour. The service order is a special type of job scheduler which allows the fractioning of each working day in one or more time slots with the additional ability to indicate the number of readings expected for each tag belonging to the given service order. Tags included in the service order may belong to different customers. After having assigned the tags to the service order you need to setup a valid schedule (daily or weekly) and select the type of service required. The software allows you also to control the time gap between two back-to-back readings of same tag. Instead a programmed guard tour is constitued by a series of tags to be read once or more during the day. Each programmed guard tour is always identified by its start tag, maximum duration and related grace time. Some programming options are available among which the possibility to control the sequence of the tags and the time gap between them. A tour done with on-line devices can be monitored in real time through Datix RTS Monitor. The service order and programmed tour reports allow to compare the expected results with personnel performance during a specific period of time.

Functions specific to personnel attendance

The software comes with functions and tools specific to staff attendance management. The software allows two job scheduling modes for each employee: basic and advanced. By the basic mode you can configure the daily total hours expected at each customer’s site. Instead, by the advanced mode you can configure the employee’s exact clock in/out time expected at each customer’s site. Grace time options and rounding rules are available for both the programming modes. Daily, weekly and monthly job calendars definition is supported as well. The staff attendance reports allow to compare the expected results with the real clock-in and clock-out. The reports also provide the calculation of the total hours worked during a specific period of time.
