PDS, an award-winning developer of web-based human resource and payroll systems, today announced that United Fire Group, a property, casualty and life insurance company headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has completed the implementation of its Vista HRMS (Human Resource Management System) to further streamline and automate the insurance company’s human resource, payroll and benefits administration processes.
With more than 670 employees, United Fire Group includes United Fire & Casualty Company (NASDAQ: UFCS) and five other wholly-owned insurance subsidiaries. Vista’s fully-integrated HR, benefits administration and payroll system will enable United Fire Group to minimize the time invested in administrative HR and payroll activities and focus more on strategic initiatives.
"We were in search of a solution that provided online benefits enrollment, employee self service and that was more compliant with the Sarbanes Oxley Act than what we had in place," said Zondra Hopkins, Payroll/HRIS Manager at United Fire Group. "We thoroughly evaluated many of the products on the market and the positive reviews that PDS’ technical support received from its existing customers really stood out."

"By leveraging Vista’s self-service capabilities, United Fire Group will be able to reduce the administrative burden on its HR and payroll departments and better serve its employees."
