‘One-stop shop’ debuts, will expand soon

CrewPro, a new timekeeping system, has debuted.

The Belt currently uses several platforms for timekeeping. Eventually, the new system, which went live on Dec. 10 for Transportation, will be the only system.

Director Business Development/Car Operations Michael Martinez is excited about the development because it will make for a better user experience, including offering employees easier access to their data. It also will create efficiencies and reduce the chance for errors or red tape. 

“It’s a user-friendly, one-stop shop,” he said. “The end user is going to be a lot happier.”

Employees can use the system to request vacations, bid for open jobs and view their attendance records and bulletins, including announcements of new jobs. 

Martinez believes having one platform will enhance the experience for administrators as well. He said once the system is adopted across departments, it will support even better communication and prevent data loss and human error. 

Martinez worked closely with the software developer to customize CrewPro. The work included discovery meetings and extensive user-acceptance testing. 

Eventually, the system will be accessible via an app employees can use on their personal devices.
