Ciphr HR - online HR software for the manufacturing industry

Ciphr’s cloud-based human resources (HR) software helps manufacturers stay connected and work efficiently when they need to most – even when operating remotely.

  • Improve efficiency
  • Enhance communication across your organisation, at all levels, across all stages of the employee lifecycle
  • Gain a holistic perspective of people and performance through data
  • Attract, retain, and reward top talent
  • Carry out relevant background checks
  • Record and report on essential employee information, including vaccination status

Employees can:

  • Manage, maintain, and view their own information – such as holiday, personal details, and online payslips – via self-service access
  • Take control of updating and maintaining their personal information
  • Enjoy fast and easy online access to documents and communications

Workforce management

Ciphr HR can help you manage complex work patterns – with employees working flexibly or on zero-hour contracts – by becoming your central source of essential people data, while also giving you access to an ecosystem of partners and solutions through Ciphr Connect.

You can also use Ciphr’s API – which enables data to be sent from Ciphr HR to other systems and to be received by Ciphr HR from other systems – to integrate Ciphr HR with a range of rostering and workforce management solutions such as HFX. Its configurable SaaS time and attendance solutions make it quick and easy to create staff schedules and handle holiday, shift and time-off requests.

HFX also has over 80 clocking options to choose from, ranging from biometric and mobile devices to card readers. Its advanced connectivity also means you can keep existing time recording devices.

Background checking

Ciphr’s identity and background checking functionality connects people data between the Ciphr Connect suite of solutions and Experian, empowering you to run background checks quickly and easily for both new candidates and existing employees, while at the same time maintaining data accuracy.

HR teams in manufacturing companies can automatically initiate checks as specified and carry them out in the early stages of recruitment to ensure the right hire is made.

This flexible system enables you to record details of any kind of check, for any employee or candidate, including:

  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks
  • Right-to-work checks
  • Reference checks
  • Passport checks

Against each check, you can record the validity, expiry dates, relevant documents, and any other pertinent information.

Absence management

From sickness to holidays and annual leave, you can easily manage absences for your staff with the absence management tools within Ciphr HR.

Staff can see who else is off in their team or wider organisation, and log absences including holiday, annual leave and sickness. HR managers can also view, verify and report on sickness and holiday. For employees on a flexible work pattern, Ciphr HR also allows them to select which days and hours they were absent, so managers can track and manage absences accurately.

Attract and engage the best workers

For companies in the manufacturing industry, skilled workers are essential to ensuring optimum efficiency and productivity – but they can be difficult to find and attract. Ciphr’s applicant tracking system (ATS), Ciphr iRecruit, enables you to find the best candidates with the right skillset.

Ciphr iRecruit – which can be integrated with Ciphr HR – enables you to publish vacancies to multiple websites, job boards, agencies, and social media channels, streamlining and simplifying the hiring process.

Once hired, you can use Ciphr Onboarding to make all staff feel like valued members of your company by providing them with access to relevant policy documents, handbooks, FAQs, and multimedia presentations, and informing and educating them about your organisation’s structure, history, ethos, and culture.

Engage diskless workers

When employees are out and about on the job, and not always at their desk, how can you ensure that they know about the latest updates or business developments?

With Ciphr’s mobile functionality, you can provide users with fast and secure access to their core employee data on a range of devices. Via their mobile phone, users can search for colleagues through the employee directory, review holiday entitlement, submit leave requests, and view all time off. Managers can also review and update team information quickly and easily.
