Tayto Project Summary

A family’s passion for giving customers and consumers great quality snacks from a team that care.

Since 1956 the Tayto brand has been lovingly made in their factory based at Tandragee Castle in the heart of the countryside in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. Over the past five years this family owned company has grown from strength to strength since the acquisition of major brands including Golden Wonder, Real Crisps, Mr Porky and Jonathan Crisp. This has confirmed their place as the third largest snack manufacturer in the UK.


As the Tayto Group has grown over the past few years, so has the need to efficiently  monitor employee attendance and absenteeism. What we had, only a year ago, was a number of different systems across the group, some of which were no longer in operation, and some, which although working, were not providing the information required by the HR and Wages departments.


A number of companies were asked to tender for the project and to put forward a proposal for a live trial.  timeware® were short listed and following a three month evaluation period including over 400 employees, they were awarded the group-side contract.


The timeware® team worked closely with our IT department to install  the remaining attendance terminals.  Data was imported from our old systems and the training was completed on schedule and without any issues.  

As with any major project roll out there were teething issues, however, the timeware® team worked tirelessly to resolve these quickly and made it a very smooth installation. All of this affirms that we made the correct choice with timeware®.
