We were approached by our client – allianceHR – who specialises in improving employee human rights for the people who supply to big retail organisations.
They wanted a super-checklist tool created – called Complyer – to create an ongoing confidential recommendations report to map auditor’s findings to those of the UK Government’s GLAA (Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority) Licensing Standards.
Complyer gives a solid framework for consistent auditing and helps to improve standards for Labour Providers and helps to prevent tragedies like those of the 2004 Morecambe Bay cockle pickers disaster – when 21 illegal immigrant Chinese labourers drowned.
Complyer is used by Morrisons supermarkets and by suppliers to TESCO supermarkets to check they are behaving ethically and legally with staffing. complete the audit using the Complyer tool and can produce reports or export PDF documents to show their compliance and show what items are still outstanding.
What we did – Client meetings
In detailed meetings with the client, we determined what they wanted to do – convert and update data created by them in an Excel spreadsheet into Complyer’s database system that their clients could use to ensure they were following the legal standards.
We also worked closely to understand the methodology for scoring their clients’ responses and to give their clients’ a relevant Complyer rating.
What we did – software releases
From time to time the Complyer standards need updating, and Jet Net provide this in the form of “software releases”.
What we did – support
Computer software is never simple, and Jet Net Systems provide a support service to allianceHR to help their clients with any problems they may have when running the software. Any fixable errors are applied to the software and distributed in the next “release”.
Complyer is not the only tool that Jet Net Systems have created for alliance HR – there are also tools for their StrongerTogether, Fast Forward and Clearview programmes.
Complyer is written using a Microsoft Windows-based database system, and uses VBA Macros to convert the source Excel database data into the database system.
There is a future proposal to convert the database-based system to a web-based system, but this has not yet been approved by the client.
Complyer™ is used by Morrisons supermarkets and by suppliers to TESCO supermarkets to check they are behaving ethically and legally with staffing.
