With Ceridian's HR solution we will have the ability to report on and improve the overall capabilities of our workforce
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 14, 2009
Ceridian Corporation, a leading provider of managed human resource, employee benefits administration, tax filing, payroll outsourcing and talent management solutions, announced today that Interface Security Systems has chosen Ceridian's solutions to help it become more efficient and better manage its human resources. In particular the use of Ceridian's Time and Attendance application will replace an existing manual, paper-based process, which will save time, decrease costs and ultimately increase revenue.
"From a financial leadership perspective there are three things we are able to do," explains Ray House, director of finance for Interface Security Systems. "Increase revenues, reduce costs and mitigate risks. If we can do any one of them it's a good start. If we can do all three it's a home run. We fully expect Ceridian's solutions will help us do all three."
Interface Security Systems is a security, life safety and managed IP services company. It produces leading edge security technologies for use in homes and businesses throughout the U.S. The company has approximately 600 employees. Interface headquarters are in St. Louis, and it has 20 additional locations in 12 states.
For over 20 years Interface's payroll has been produced by an outside vendor. Unfortunately, that provider rarely contacted Interface, except to try and sell them additional products and services. When Interface decided to automate some additional HR activities, it began researching other solutions, which is when Ceridian became involved.
A large percentage of Interface's employees work in the field, servicing residential and business clients throughout the U.S. Maintenance, technical support and related labor efforts are recompensed through hourly charges. Today, Interface uses a manual, paper-based process to capture workers' time. Employees estimate their time on paper and send the sheets to a central processing center for data input. The process is time consuming, prone to errors (in record keeping and data input), and can result in a two week delay in invoicing.
"Ceridian's automated timekeeping solution, integrated with its HR management and payroll, will enable us to better track our employees' time," explains House. "We expect to have a stricter, more accurate accounting of employee activities. And we will be replacing a manual, paper-based system with an automated solution. Taken as a whole Ceridian's solutions will enable us to increase revenue, by both having a more accurate, timely accounting of employee time, and by being able to invoice for it within 24 hours or less of the service being provided. At the same time, the automation and Ceridian's compliance expertise will help us mitigate risk."
Finally, Ceridian's HR module will enable Interface to better manage its workforce. With increased information about its people and their work habits Interface will be able to determine who requires coaching and who deserves praise. "With Ceridian's HR solution we will have the ability to report on and improve the overall capabilities of our workforce," notes House.
Ray House and Interface ultimately chose Ceridian because its solutions were solid, well integrated and delivered at a reasonable cost. "We did our due diligence," House explains. "We had our technology experts examine the software and we contacted several Ceridian clients. Our experts liked the solutions. And we heard good things about Ceridian's customer service." In the end, Ray House concludes, the decision to move forward with Ceridian's solutions was an easy one to make.
