What our clients say ...

Cadbury (Ireland) (Manufacturer of Confectionery products)  
P&Q client: Cadbury Ireland
“We employ approximately 1400 employees between two plants in Ireland. We have been using QTAR since 1987 and operate it in both these plants. Our shift patterns are very variable. The staff at P&Q are always very helpful.”
(Catherine Murphy of Cadbury (Ireland))


Monarch Aircraft Engineering (Aircraft servicing & repairs) 
P&Q client: Monarch Aircraft Engineering
“We installed QTAR in 1991. It revolutionised our whole system of doing the payroll. QTAR is reliable and flexible and P&Q are always ready to help, they respond very fast.”
(Pat Thomas of Monarch Aircraft Engineering Ltd)


Goodyear Dunlop (world's largest tyre manufacturer)    
P&Q client: Goodyear Dunlop
“At the Wolverhampton site, the rules for calculating employees' gross pay are incredibly complicated, depending on a multitude of factors such as the type of work, when they are working compared with their normal shift, the reason for the overtime or shift swap and even how dirty the work is! So QTAR has to be used to calculate the gross pay for each period of work. The supervisors approve and record reasons for overtime, shift swaps and absences during the shift, directly into the system, which has streamlined the process enormously.”
(Audrey Woolvin of Goodyear Dunlop)


Caparo Precision Tubes (Manufacturer of Steel tubing)       
P&Q client: Caparo Precision Tubes
“We first installed QTAR in 1991. We have found QTAR extremely flexible - it can do anything you require of it. Day-to-day operations are simple. It rarely goes wrong or gives us trouble. The Support team is well-informed and comprehensive. P & Q have kept their focus squarely on T & A - they simply have to be good at it.”
(Bob Sharratt of Caparo Tubing)


Crown Cork and Seal (International packaging company)    
P&Q client: Crown Cork and Seal
“We've had QTAR installed for quite a few years, and we find it to be a good program. P&Q are very friendly and helpful. If I have a problem or question they are always ready to assist me.”
(Christine Wathan of Crown Cork and Seal)


Unisys Insurance Services (Administering Life Insurance schemes)    
P&Q client: Unisys Insurance Services
“We have been using QTAR since 1991. We have a flexitime system with complex flexible working time requirements. It is largely self-administered (within the rules configured into the system) by the 1,500 employees. A competing system was installed and then rejected, since it was unable to cope with our requirements.”
(Julie Coldridge of Abbey Life)


TMD Friction (Manufacturer of Brake friction components)    
P&Q client: TMD Friction
“Our shift patterns are complex – 5-day, 7-day, morning, afternoon, nights and rotating, and we also have people on fixed salaries. QTAR handles these fine. When we upgraded QTAR just before Christmas, that went very smoothly.”
(P. A. Rothwell of TMD Friction)


Kraft Suchard (Manufacturer of Chocolate and confectionery) 
P&Q client: Kraft Suchard
“We have a workforce of about 850 and have used QTAR since 1992 to keep track of shift work, contractor hours and salaried personnel for payroll. We also rely on QTAR in our costing processes, to authorise overtime, book employee holidays, report excessive unauthorised absences, etc.”
(Martin Buckle of Kraft Suchard)


LEONI Wiring Systems (Manufacturer of Lucas brand electronic vehicle parts)    
P&Q client: LEONI Wiring Systems
“We originally purchased QTAR in 1990 purely for payroll management, with up to 3000 individuals on the system. We found that using the system was simple, with a lot of standard reports included. But when we realised how QTAR could be expanded, we had extra ones written for reporting things like absenteeism in different ways that suited our requirements better. P&Q staff give good support and are easy to talk to, even if you aren't very familiar with computers.”
(Stella Pepper of LEONI)


British American Tobacco (Tobacco manufacturer)    
P&Q client: British American Tobacco
“The QTAR system has been in our factory since 1986 and has been very stable with few issues. P&Q support has been reliable and efficient. The application has outlived a number of HR system transitions, and migration of interfaces has not been problematic. A number of custom modules have been designed to meet our special needs, including absence and overtime reporting.”
(Hans Commandeur at BAT)


MBM Produce (Foodstuffs)    
P&Q client: MBM Produce
“We have been using the QTAR system about 16 years. It works well. It's hard to make set rules about this kind of factory. Work patterns change often. People work very variable hours. Sometimes they make time up when they need to come in late. I find it easy to go into the system and override it. We upgraded a few years ago, and we found P&Q very helpful. They are happy to talk me through any problems I may come across.”
(Jenny Hawkins of MBM Produce:)


Dunlop Oil & Marine (Manufacturer of Industrial hosing) 
P&Q client: Dunlop Oil & Marine “Dunlop Oil & Marine has been using QTAR since 1984. We have had no trouble with the system in all that time. Because P&Q concentrate on T&A, the system works perfectly.”
(Sue Thomas of Dunlop Oil & Marine)

Introduction to Privacy Policy

We are committed to the privacy and confidentiality of information provided by you to us. This Privacy Policy describes our current policies and practices with regard to Personal Data collected by us from you directly and/or through this website. The term “Personal Data” refers to personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, job description, e-mail address or mailing address.

Notification of changes to this Policy

We are continually improving our methods of communication and adding new functionality and features to this website (which may include micro websites or areas within this website) and to our existing services. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, our data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, we will notify you of the changes via this page. We encourage you to check this page frequently.

Collection of Personal Data including e-mail addresses

You may choose to register by submitting contact information, to receive or obtain additional information or services from us. When you register, we request personal information about you such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers and we may ask for demographic information. This information enables us to provide a personalised service to you. The information you give us is either manually or electronically stored in our databases.

We sometimes supplement the information that you provide with information that is received from third parties. For instance, if inaccurate postal or zip codes are received, we may use third party software to fix them.

We sometimes collect email addresses from prospect lists of other businesses or via marketing events, such as conferences, seminars and exhibitions. In such cases, we assume that individuals providing their email addresses have opted in to receive email messages from us.

Use of Personal Data

We process your Personal Data only for specific and limited purposes. We ask only for data that is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes. Where we send you information for any purpose, it may be sent by methods such as e-mail or post. When we ask you for Personal Data, we will tell you the purposes for which we will process that data unless confirmed herein. Some of these purposes may include the following:

Anonymous data collected through this website

In addition to the information we collect as described above, we may use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our website. For example, we may use technology to track which pages of our website our visitors view. We may also use technology to determine which Web browsers our visitors use. This technology does not identify you personally; it simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our website.

Our website contains hyperlinks to other pages on our website. We may use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on our website our visitors choose to view. Again this technology does not identify you personally – for example, it enables us to compile statistics about the use of these hyperlinks.

We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on a network, or in this case, the Internet.

We may also perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (e.g.: aol.com, yourcompany.com) to more accurately gauge our users' demographics.

We use this anonymous data to improve the content and functionality of this website and our e-mail updates, to better understand our customers and visitors, and to improve the services we offer.
