Time and attendance system for Ford in the UK

Crown Computing : 28 May, 2009  (Application Story)
Ford will take a new time and attendance system including payroll functions from Crown Computing
Workforce Management software vendor Crown Computing, in partnership with Logica, has signed an agreement with Ford of Britain to provide a new payroll and time and attendance (T&A) system.

The new system will replace an existing bespoke solution that was ageing and becoming increasingly difficult to maintain and administer.

An extensive review of the various systems offered within the UK market was undertaken in January 2007. The process was spearheaded by Ford’s internal procurement team. In August 2008, the company selected Logica to lead the project, with Crown Computing as its preferred T&A vendor.

The deployment of Crown’s Open Options T&A system and Oracle Payroll will be hosted by Logica. The system will run the time and attendance, activity management and payroll administration of 13,000 salaried and hourly-paid employees at numerous Ford of Britain sites around the UK, including: Bridgend, Dagenham, Southampton, Halewood, Dunton and Daventry. It is anticipated that the project will take between 18-20 months to implement, with completion expected around December 2010.

Mike Hawkesford, Managing Director, Crown Computing, expressed his delight at the win: “It is enormously prestigious for Crown to be working with Ford and Logica on this major project. Open Options is very well proven in numerous enterprise-level implementations, so we know it will integrate seamlessly with Oracle Payroll to give Ford a comprehensive and very cost-effective solution. Working closely with Logica, we are both confident we will provide Ford with a high-performance system from which the company will derive a substantial return on investment.”
