For a company with numerous employees across various locations, it is imperative to have a system in place that can manage various areas of the HR process
Edison, NJ (PRWEB) July 14, 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 Chop't Creative Salad, a New York-based food services company, has selected CheckPoint HR's Web-based Human Resource Management System (HRMS) to manage its payroll services and other HR processes across nine locations.
Founded in 2001, Chop't Creative Salad opened its first store in New York City in an attempt to bring a creative, fresh and healthy lunchtime local scene. After the success of the first store, the founders of the company began expanding throughout the East Coast. Today, the company has nearly 300 employees located across their nine stores in New York, Washington, DC and Virginia.
"When I joined the Chop't team, we had a third party payroll system in place -- however, we did not see the value or return on investment (ROI)," said Victor Stevenson, Controller at Chop't Creative Salad. "We began searching for a replacement in early 2008, and shortly after, received a demo from the folks at CheckPoint HR. We were immediately impressed with the flexibility, price point and features of the CheckPoint HR HRMS platform and services."
The executives at Chop't Creative Salad selected CheckPoint HR's HRMS platform in March 2008 and after a flawless implementation began running payroll in June. Since deployment, the company has utilized the platform to manage employee data, payroll and benefits administration.
"CheckPoint HR is a comprehensive platform that is very easy-to-use," noted Mr. Stevenson. "In addition to managing HR processes such as payroll, our employees now have the ability to update their personal information, ask questions about W-2/W-4 and other forms, review benefits data, etc. - all through the centralized platform. The reporting functionality also provides an added benefit that our previous solution did not have. The ease of generating reports has saved us a significant amount of time and, in turn, has created an added cost savings for the company."
According to Mr. Stevenson, the greatest benefit since deploying CheckPoint HR has been the cost and ROI. The ability to process payroll at any time, from any place has provided employees with more time to concentrate on what matters most -- the restaurants. In addition, a significant ROI is recognized once payroll is processed, as the company receives instant feedback.
"For a company with numerous employees across various locations, it is imperative to have a system in place that can manage various areas of the HR process," said Pete Nahaczewski, VP of Sales (New York) at CheckPoint HR. "With the CheckPoint HR platform, Chop't Creative Salad is not only able to simplify HR processes for the company as a whole, but they are also able to improve operational efficiencies in each of their locations. It has also made generating custom reports a simple process, saving the company time and money."
