Retail Case Study - Floris
Established in 1730 Juan Floris married his English rose Elizabeth and together they began creating perfume at the Jermyn Street Shop in St James’s. Today, Floris is the only Appointed Perfumer to Her Majesty The Queen and is still run by the original family. Now in its 9th generation Floris remain purveyors of the finest English perfumes for women, men and the home.
With a London shop on Jermyn street and a distribution facility in Tiverton, Floris desired a system that could manage a workforce across multiple sites and track and record different work patterns and employees’ overtime.
Although one business, actually the operations across the two locations are in fact quite different. The shop operates as a true retail environment and the Tiverton facility as a true warehousing environment.
When replacing the existing timesheet process with a modern workforce management solution across both sites, Chronicle had to be able to account for both styles of operations and working rules.
‘What I liked about Chronicle is its simplicity. The layout and design is very intuitive.’

Like all customers of Chronicle Computing Ltd, Floris use Chronicle Online a completely cloud based workforce management solution encompassing Time and Attendance, Scheduling, HR and Reporting.
The PAYmate terminals were dispatched by courier which Floris self-installed. This kept the lead time and installation cost to a minimum. The software was activated remotely with training and set up done online. Over a period of time, rules and customisation was added to the shift patterns and rosters to accommodate paid and unpaid lunch breaks, overtime logic and rounding rules.
The Data Capture
Based on culture and staffing numbers, a simple and easy Proximity system was sufficient. Wishing to just clock in and out and the system to deduct the lunch breaks meant three PAYmate clocking terminal was a suitable solution.
