IMI Webber Precision Engineering

How we helped boost productivity in precision engineering

IMI Webber, part of IMI Precision, is a world leader in motion and fluid control technologies. From its headquarters in Bristol, IMI Webber specialises in delivering precision, speed and engineering reliability to improve the productivity and efficiency of its customers equipment.

The Problem

Employing 160 people, across two buildings, IMI Webber required a modern time and attendance (T&A) solution to replace their existing, outdated system. The business needed the new system to record employees worked hours and to manage and control movement across the various sites. IMI Webber also wanted a tool to record time spent on jobs against specified budgets.
Having previously experienced unreliable hardware, IMI Webber was also keen to replace the existing terminals with a more robust and reliable solution and to allow the business to gather accurate data.

The Solution

IMI Webber rolled out a fully integrated workforce management solution that encompassed Time & Attendance (iTime), Access Control (iAccess), Job Costing (iJob Costing) and also a Human Resources (iHR) module to create one single database for all the workforce management requirements.
The business was able to secure it’s buildings in one go, by installing access control panels to all of it’s internal and external doors, creating access zones that could be entered using the same fob or card that was used for clocking hours.
IMI Webber also implemented an automated payroll export which resulted in a significantly shortened payroll process and reduced the amount of human error that was previously taking place in the payroll export. iJob Costing has allowed IMI Webber to easily track all of the hours worked against a cost code.


“Having evaluated the market it appeared that our requirements were challenging for most workforce management providers in the market, as very few companies offered a single
database solution incorporating all of the software.
In addition even less had an inhouse development team and the willingness to spend time customising their products to our very specifc job costing requirements.
