Timelink International announces a record year for its Time & Attendance division


Traditionally we think of employee ‘time clocks’ and ‘time and attendance’ systems as belonging to a different age, one of large factories and soulless offices with row upon row of clerical workers, all signing in each morning and dutifully checking out at the end of the day. Like many other mechanical systems from the fifties and sixties there is a perception that time clocks had gone the way of the ark – and that today we live in more enlightened times. Enlightened times – yes, but as far as the demise of clocking systems are concerned, nothing could be further from the truth.

As Richard Musgrove, Technical Director of Timelink Group International ( said in a recent statement “Time recording, web clocking and access control systems are very much alive in the 21st century”, and that far from dying out he added “our company sales are going from strength to strength.”

Staff now have the ability to work flexitime, often starting when they like and finishing at various hours of the day; other workers job share and yet others again work different shifts. Whereas in ages past when it was simply a matter of clocking in and clocking out once or twice a day, today the permutations are myriad and without the help of sophisticated technology, keeping track of all this on a manual basis would be exceedingly difficult.

Also popular are the company’s access control systems. According to Richard Musgrove even a simplest access system can be set so that only authorised persons are allowed entry to certain parts of a company’s premises, or allowed access at certain times of the day. Such systems also record invalid or illegal access attempts.

Started in 1992 by the then 21 year old Richard Musgrove and his business partner Sean Rourke, next year Timelink International celebrates 20 years in business something that in normal times would be an achievement let alone in the current economy. Even more noteworthy is the fact that unlike many of its competitors Timelink does not import cheap time and attendance systems from overseas but instead designs and manufactures all units in its Midlands factory where it also has a thriving CCTV division.

In announcing its results Richard Musgrove added that the company prided itself on its professionalism and commitment to both staff and clients throughout the UK. The size of his clients’ businesses ranged from small organisations with just 3 staff members to large multi nationals employing many thousands of staff.
