Whereas Iveco is responsible for lorries and buses, CNH develops and produces large plant and equipment for the agriculture and construction sectors. Both these companies fall under CNH Industrial, a full subsidiary of the FIAT (Chrysler) group. CNH Zedelgem is responsible for designing, developing, producing and assembling the plant and equipment. Of the 2,700 employees, 2,000 work in production and 700 in the office. CNH Industrial is stock exchange listed and turns over € 25.8 billion annually.
In the CNH operation in Zedelgem work 2,700 employees. Ann Castelyn, HR manager has been working for the company for 25 years and knows nothing other than the use of time logging.
When the company switched over to a new manufacturing system in 2012, ICT manager in charge of HR systems Johan Cloet looked around for a new provider for the time logging.
"We discovered that we needed to replace our time logging system. We were unable to integrate the existing system with the new manufacturing system. Time logging had to be part of the efficiency calculations and the labour cost.” Cloet: “We were looking for a player on the Belgian market. Protime seemed to be the best party for us because of the flexibility of its programme and the SaaS range. We were aiming to outsource the hosting of the data processing, with a view to the quality as well as to the cost aspect.”
