Flying High with Swift

Tamworth-based Crown Workforce Management is helping Swift – the UK’s largest manufacturer of touring caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes – soar to new heights with the provision of its time and attendance (T&A) software.

The manufacturer, which was founded in 1964, has a workforce of more than 1,150 employees and a turnover in excess of £270m.

It has gone from strength-to-strength in recent years with two sites – a head office in Cottingham and manufacturing site in Mexborough, Yorkshire.

The Crown T&A system has a self-service interface that allows staff to record hours worked and request leave, replacing a manual system for recording hours.

Swift is a family-run business which has grown organically and through acquisition to become Europe’s number one brand for leisure vehicles, and the only UK manufacturer to operate across touring caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes.

Mike Hawkesford, Managing Director of Crown Workforce Management said: “Swift is a fine example of a pioneering company that has led the way and set standards in its field.

“We hope that Crown’s workforce management system will help them achieve greater efficiencies by making time and attendance and payroll a seamless process which will support the company as it continues to grow and succeed.”

Richard Smeaton, Swift Financial Director, added: “The Crown system has already yielded a return on investment by streamlining payroll and providing greater attendance transparency for managers, an essential efficiency improvement as the business continues to grow.”
