“I would rate the system as excellent and give it 10 out of 10. None of the systems I’ve come across has its own analysis engine EU Driver Hours, WTD/AWR and Good Work Plan! ”
“Since using DRS our costs have decreased significantly and our compliance is automated. I can rest knowing that all drivers are legal, assignment schedules are sent automatically, invoicing and payroll is correct, and restrictions are in place to prevent human error. For Employ, compliance is our core value so ensuring insurance criteria is met and licence checks cannot be overridden is a great bonus. The system controlling the day-to-day activity to such a degree allows me to focus on strategy and sales and provide the best possible service to our clients and candidates.”
The biggest benefit for the finance team is the integration between the drivers’ hours and conversion into reports for invoicing the clients and paying both PSC’s and PAYE drivers. This has saved a considerable amount of time.
We’re delighted with the automation of vacancies and shifts, our candidates get regular appropriate shift options, our clients get excellent MI reports. We’ve saved so much time. It’s great having the time to focus on the bigger picture.
Automated candidate registration has saved an enormous amount of time, with the added benefit of assured compliance, it’s really transformed our working day as we can focus on filling shifts and building relationships.
“Having used the platform for four years to improve our booking processes, compliance, and client management, we couldn’t be happier with the results. The expertise and knowledge of the industry within the DRS team was evident from the offset. DRS is a very effective system for any recruitment agency who wants to safely stay within legal requirement. We look forward to continuing using the software. I will recommend DRS to anyone that I know, thank you again for the fantastic service.” Managing Director, Phoenix Personnel
Our clients find...
Our clients gain from multiple benefits from DRS, which offers much more than workforce automated software. The end-to-end, all in one software saves time for every department and improves efficiency. Many clients say they initially bought DRS for it’s compliance and finance features, but admit if they knew how much time it saved, they would have integrated DRS much sooner.
“One of DRS’ best features is the compliance functionality, DRS manages in real-time EU Drivers Hours and WTD which provides peace of mind that everyone placed is legal. DRS clients will also save huge amounts of time using DRS – one example is that candidates register and upload documents online and everything appears in the system, so there is no data entry for recruitment consultants.” Danny Phillips, Managing Director
“The DRS client portal is used for us to add our agency shifts and we have visibility in real time as the agency assign a candidate. Once shifts are complete we can confirm hours worked and can then view our invoices. Being able to see a live log of incidents and infringements as well as basic KPI information makes for a transparent relationship with the agency. Because the drivers use the app to clock in/out & record shift breakdown we can rest knowing that all parties are looking at the same information, which eliminates the risk of communication errors. The system also provides piece of mind that the agency are running the drivers legally.” Liam O’Neil, Managing Director, Express Logistics
“DRS is appropriate to our niche in the market. We wanted to ensure that our drivers were fully compliant with WTD and EU Drivers Hours. We were looking for a system that ensured that we calculated holiday pay correctly in accordance with Agency Worker Regulations, and moreover, had a pricing structure that enabled us to confirm that we were using a financially viable business model. It is also important to us that it’s easy to see which drivers have worked for each customer, and which drivers are preferred by each customer.
As a family-run business, we have chosen a system which provides detailed information about our two vital components: drivers and customers. We have spent too much time in the past relying on the memory of individual office staff. With training and practice, any member of the office should be able to run the business: we are trying to reach the point where our business no longer relies entirely upon key personnel.” Managing Director, Drivers Relief
The management information suite is excellent, it makes prepping for client meetings much easier, we present data clients want to see. We’re building stronger client relationships as we’re more in control.
We integrated DRS for the compliance feature, everything else seemed a bonus. Six months later, we’ve realised the candidate management is a massive time saver. The MI feature is an excellent tool to share with our clients.
The engagement with candidates has really impacted our candidate retention, as they’re getting regular vacancies which suit their preferences. We’ve also noticed clients requesting particular temps which we can also match.
What agency clients think...
Compliance is a must within our sector, we know Employ use DRS and we have complete assurance our drivers at compliant at all times.
We have extreme peaks during the year, utilising the MI reports helps to reflect and forecast for the future. Our complex rate structure doesn’t appear to be a problem.
We’ve noticed an improvement in candidate attendance, hardly any ‘no shows’, and there’s no admin anymore, we don’t know how we managed before!
The management reports we now receive really help to analyse our overtime costs, which enables us to forecast labour spend more accurately.
Invoices are accurate, finance reports are easy to understand, given the complex pay structures we operate this is exceptional compared to other agencies we use.
The management reports we receive clearly show cost vs budget per distribution centre which is ideal for managing budgets.

What candidates think...
Love the communication on the app, as you feel constantly connected, as I do mostly shift work it’s ideal for me.
Pay on time
Pay is always correct and on time, even when loads of changes with bookings occur my hours and pay match.
It’s great being able to check your earnings whenever you want, it’s so easy to use very simple even if you’re not used to Apps, highly recommend.
I get shift options in advance to suit me, and notifications to confirm once accepted. It’s just great.
The app is great, there’s hardly any phone calls needed, I can upload my hours, I even got a Happy Birthday message.
The app is so good, I get shift options that suit my preferred times, confirmation notes – it’s ideal for me.
I’ve started to get the same time of jobs over the last 12 months now, which is great just going to a couple of clients.
There’s no hassle with loads of calls or need for emails, everything is done via text which suits me.
At Employ I have found the payroll system absolutely superb getting access to payslips online and live before we get paid, definitely recommend.
