For example, if you have 25 employees clocking and two administrators managing the system you only pay £54.00 (ex VAT) per month. Smartphone and web clocking are free so you just pay monthly for the employees live on the system.
Administrators, supervisors and line managers with access to a Citadel online account and who use the system for managing timecards, reporting etc. are also charged at £2.00 per account user a month.
