Simeio uses the latest biometric technology that has been designed to stand up to the dirt and external pressures of a construction site. Workers can either pre-register their details on a central online system or on the device itself and then simply clock in and out using the Simeio mobile device on site.

Sub-contractors and suppliers can also use it, allowing contractors to choose and pay for what they need while also providing a clear audit trail.
Simeio also provides additional tools including targeted health and safety updates and compliance data to communicate to workers. Site managers and head offices can access the reports, records and accepted health and safety declarations in real time from any location. Simeio’s cloud-based site Delivery Management System (DMS) also allows contractors and suppliers to plan, book and control deliveries of materials and plant in real-time.
