Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) March 19, 2007
Stromberg, a subsidiary of Paychex, Inc. (NASDAQ:PAYX) and a leading provider of time and attendance solutions for mid- to large-sized businesses, today announced that the City of Birmingham has selected Stromberg to improve time tracking, attendance and payroll efficiency to its 5,000 employees. Additionally, the City's Fire and Police departments have selected PDSI, a leading provider of staff scheduling and notification solutions for public safety departments, for its staff scheduling and notification needs. Both solutions are rules-based which will allow the City to comply with regulatory constraints and organizational policies, and labor data will be passed to the City's new payroll/HR system resulting in less manual tasks and more streamlined operations.
"The Birmingham Police Department has historically depended on antiquated and labor intensive paper-based systems to staff and manage daily personnel needs. Such systems created many points of failure and could not hope to meet our future needs as we implement a new payroll system in 2008. Stromberg will integrate with our new payroll initiative and we also believe that it will show a tremendous return-on-investment by streamlining our internal processes. Stromberg and TeleStaff are a major component in helping us to operate in a more efficient and effective manner and we look forward to our relationship," stated Ray Tubbs, Birmingham Police Department.
"Using Stromberg Enterprise and TeleStaff software, will allow us to make quantum improvements to our older, legacy programs that require major administrative effort. These new systems will provide major retooling to the City's operating units," stated John M. Wade, Director of Information Management Services, City of Birmingham.
"We're pleased that Stromberg was chosen by the City of Birmingham to automate their time and attendance process," says Ian Sexton, vice president of sales and marketing for Stromberg. "Stromberg's Enterprise solution will allow the City the ability to optimize the management of their workforce."
