Our staff is constantly expanding and we needed a flexible and scalable system that could grow with us
Edison, NJ (PRWEB) September 16, 2008
CheckPoint HR, an innovator and leading Administrative Services Organization (ASO) that offers mid-size organizations an integrated Human Resources Management System (HRMS) for payroll services, human resources, and benefits administration, today announced Atlanta Perinatal Associates (APA), provider of the most advanced level of specialized Maternal-Fetal Medicine for expecting mothers and their unborn child, is automating its HR functions using the CheckPoint HR HRMS platform.
With 55 employees across 10 locations in the Atlanta Metro area, Atlanta Perinatal Associates sought a centralized Web-based system that would eliminate the complexities associated with managing employee data, payroll, and benefits administrations across multiple locations. Prior to utilizing CheckPoint HR's robust HRMS, Atlanta Perinatal Associates' HR department manually processed tasks which was time-consuming and required coordination between sites. In addition, Human Resources Coordinator Gaynelle Jackson wanted an HR solution that would offer self-service that would assist in employee retention.
"Our staff is constantly expanding and we needed a flexible and scalable system that could grow with us," Jackson said. "CheckPoint HR was the perfect selection for achieving all of our goals. Their intuitive payroll/HRMS platform keeps all employee information centralized for easy retrieval and updating."
Atlanta Perinatal Associates began instillation in April 2008, and immediately saw the benefits of an online system as the HR office became more organized with the removal of excess paper waste and individual employees began utilizing the self-service capabilities. With CheckPoint HR's 24-7 online access, employees are able to update personnel information, view electronic payroll history, health benefits, track vacation and paid time off requests, company assets, and employment reviews at any time, from any location.
Atlanta Perinatal Associates' employees are also taking advantage of CheckPoint HR's wide selection of online classes that are accessible from anywhere with Internet access. With over 100 courses to select from, employees are able to sharpen skills and expand their knowledge.
"Our employees have embraced the online courses and self-service offerings provided by CheckPoint HR," Jackson said. "Having the unique ability to train your staff online has enhanced our company in many ways. Not only have we reached significant cost and time savings, but the ease at which these courses are available has helped motivate our employees to improve as both professionals and individuals. Also, by being more actively involved in daily business processes, our employees are more invested in the overall success of our company."
Additionally, Atlanta Perinatal is utilizing CheckPoint HR's insurance affiliate, The Wilshire Group, to improve employee healthcare benefits. The Wilshire Group carefully examined Atlanta Perinatal's goals in order to define a long-term strategy that addresses the needs of their employees as well costs.
"The Wilshire Group is an excellent complement to CheckPoint HR's services," CheckPoint HR Partner Michael Bock said. "It's advantageous to receive optimal healthcare coverage and other employee benefits from the same provider of your payroll and HR solutions because of the close relationship you develop. Together, CheckPoint HR and The Wilshire Group work hard to understand Atlanta Perinatal Associates and our success shows in our ability to consistently provide the best HR services."
