Report Date
April 2020

Achievements this Period

  • The additional functionality to incorporate visitors into the feed has been completed and successfully uploaded into the Cardinus system

  • The impact of the delay in automating the daily feed requires new employees to be added manually

Next Steps

RAG Commentary
Due to issues automating the daily file transfer and with not being able to secure any Development Technology resource to investigate the cause, the project remains open and is currently projecting an overspend of 15 days (25%). Whilst the system is fully operational for all staff and visitor accounts, there remains the requirement to manually add new accounts if required.
