Case Studies


A Manufacturing company based in Linbro Park Johannesburg asked us to provide a Time and Attendance system that would fit in well with their rapid expansion plans but not cost the earth.  The customer now has a fully featured system and an excellent reporting as well as exporting worked hours into VIP payroll.



Bovine Dairies have an EP300 Econo Fingerprint Reader that serves 60 employees.

  • They work a 40 hour week
  • For one week, employees are on day shift and then for one week they are on night shift.
  • They do not work on Saturdays or on Sundays.
  • Shift changes on Mondays.

Day shift: Monday – Thursday : 08h00 – 17h00 with half an hour unpaid lunch.

: They have 15 minutes paid tea time.

: They clock in and out  during tea and lunch times.

: The lunch and tea times are fixed.

Friday: 08h00 – 14h00 with no lunch, only 15 minutes tea time.

Night shift: Monday – Thursday : 19h00 – 06h00 with an hour paid break.

This case study portrays how Clockwatch can integrate into diverse work schedules and accommodate for paid/unpaid breaks and fixed as well as flexible times.


  • Blinds Manufacturers have 3 Sagem MA500 clocks.
  • They have 150 employees.
  • Their employees must clock up at least 45 hours at Normal Time for the week.
  • Thereafter, they are paid at time-and-a-half.
  • On Sundays, they are paid at double rates.
  • The day is divided into three shifts (except for Sunday) and employees rotate from afternoon shift to morning shift to night shift.

Monday to Friday:

Shift 1 : 06h00 – 16h00

Shift 2 : 14h00 – 22h00

Shift 3 : 22h00 – 06h00

They have one hour unpaid lunch and it can be taken anytime.


Shift 1 : 06h00 – 11h00

Shift 2 : 11h00 – 16h00

Shift 3 : 16h00 – 21h00


Shift 1 : 06h00 – 18h00

Shift 2 : 18h00 – 06h00


This portrays that Clockwatch is flexible and can accommodate different shifts as well as flexible lunch/tea times.
