One thing I did not like about our old solution was that every time we requested something to be updated to the system, it would be an additional charge or we would have to install another piece of software. CheckPoint HR's HRMS platform has everything already built-in, there are no extra fees, and you have your own dedicated client care person at the company to assist you with any problems.
Edison, NJ (PRWEB) April 28, 2009
CheckPoint HR, a trusted advisor empowering small and medium size businesses in managing their human capital throughout the entire employee life cycle, today announced that Primary Care Nursing Services - an Ohio-based Medicare certified Home Health Agency - is optimizing the management of its human capital and HR processes with CheckPoint HR's Web-based Human Resource Management System (HRMS) technology platform.
With 175 employees providing in-home nursing to patients throughout Ohio, Primary Care Nursing Services sought a centralized Web-based HRMS system that would eliminate the complexities associated with managing employee data, payroll, and benefits administration. Prior to selecting CheckPoint HR, Primary Care Nursing Services utilized a third party payroll provider. As the company continued to grow, Primary Care Nursing Services required a payroll/HRMS platform that was more cost effective and one that could scale accordingly.
"The CheckPoint HR system is truly comprehensive," explained Elvina Pettus, Director of Operations at Primary Care Nursing Services. "One thing I did not like about our old solution was that every time we requested something to be updated to the system, it would be an additional charge or we would have to install another piece of software. CheckPoint HR's HRMS platform has everything already built-in, there are no extra fees, and you have your own dedicated client care person at the company to assist you with any problems."
Once the product was implemented in January of 2006, Ms. Pettus started to use the system for various HR initiatives including payroll services and benefits administration. In April of 2009, PCNS deployed CheckPoint HR's 24-7 online access, employees are now able to update personnel information, view electronic payroll history, health benefits, track vacation and paid time off requests, company information, and employment reviews at any time, from any location.
According to Ms. Pettus, the state of Ohio has various statutes regarding taxes that are complex. However, CheckPoint HR's technology staff developed work location functionalities to quickly and easily produce standard and customized reports and facilitate the payroll process. This capability not only automates and simplifies reporting/payroll processes, but also provides a huge time savings.
In addition to utilizing CheckPoint HR's platform for payroll services, employees self-service, and customized reporting, Primary Care Nursing Service is taking advantage of the benefits administration functionality, which was not offered with their previous solution. From keeping track of an employee's life, medical or dental insurance, to COBRA administration, Ms. Pettus is streamlining the company's benefits, payroll, and HR processes all through CheckPoint HR's centralized platform.
"A centralized Web-based platform that integrates not only payroll and HR services but also benefits administration and employee self-service capabilities provides small-to-medium sized business, such as Primary Care Nursing Services, with the tools to better manage its human capital," said Steve Tessler, vice-president of sales New York region, CheckPoint HR. "With a comprehensive solution such as CheckPoint HR's, Primary Care Nursing Services can reduce costs, all while improving their operational efficiencies."
