Working with hundreds of companies across the UK & Ireland from banks to retailers, we are also specialists in biometric solutions for the construction industry.

Time and attendance data is captured along with H&S, skills, qualifications and carbon data using state of the art biometric hardware. Our software and reporting tools enable customers to create cost efficiencies, make key management decisions, ensure supplier compliance and improve internal processes.

Inaccurate time & attendance is one of the largest cost centres on the majority of construction sites. Donseed can demonstrate live customers who are saving £100,000’s from introducing our solution into their businesses. Let us know your sector and we will provide a relevant industry case study that will prove the benefits of our solution.

Site Management
With Donseed you can use our wide range of hardware options to map and monitor all of the human activity that takes place on a construction site. You save money on time & attendance and identify and minimise the exposure to financial risk and legal proceedings.

You can also manage deliveries, carbon use and other key elements of personnel, visitors, suppliers and sub contractors entering and leaving your site.

All hardware has been specifically designed to operate in the rugged environment of a construction site. We have both mobile and fixed hardware options for all types of site – permanent, long term, remote and temporary.

Key Areas
The platform covers the 4 key areas you need to monitor to ensure you are always in control of your whole business:
  • 1. Time & Attendance
  • 2. Health & Safety Compliance
  • 3. Carbon Use
  • 4. Project Risk Management

Business Intelligence
The intelligent software takes biometric data, collected by Donseed’s technology at the point of site entry and exit, and extracts the business intelligence; giving you all the information and reporting you and your team need to make informed decisions on projects at any time.

Comprehensive reporting on health and safety compliance, your CO2 output and workers’ and visitors’ time and attendance is available whenever you need it via the web platform, so if you need to prove your position in a legal or accounting challenge now, or in the future, you’re covered.

And the unique alerts service notifies you if a business critical situation arises, such as no first aider on site. Add in the email and SMS reminders of regular business requirements, such as when workers’ certifications expire or poor attendance records, and you’ll always be up to date and legally covered.

Easy to use and simple to sign up to, Donseed’s single registration ensures workers and visitors are automatically tracked across all of your projects, giving you complete control over who is allowed on all of your sites and ensuring you know who is on site and when.
