Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) October 8, 2010
On August 28, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made its anticipated landfall on the Gulf Coast states of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi. The havoc wreaked by the category 4 hurricane caused Schumacher Group, based in Lafayette, LA, to consider how they could ensure the durability of their medical informatics and operational data should a similar natural disaster hit their main office.
Schumacher Group decided to move their business processes into the cloud in the event future storms might damage company headquarters. Interruption of continual access to their information systems by their emergency medicine staff was unacceptable.
When they investigated a SaaS replacement for their on-premise payroll and human resources system, data durability and security were of paramount concern as any solution had to meet stringent HIPAA requirements. What they found was a partnership between two SaaS companies, NETtime Solutions and Workday, that provided an end-to-end solution for their workforce management needs.
What made NETtime a superior value was the built-in interactive voice response (IVR), or telephony, a service where remote employees can use a phone to call in and record time punches. Not an add-on module, IVR is an integral function of NETtime that provides Schumacher with real-time employee work data, something the previous solution could not do.
NETtime, the available anywhere, anytime SaaS time and labor management product, “collects and records our time and attendance data that is then available in real time for payroll and workforce management,” said Karen Gerac, project manager for HR integration.
“The integration of telephony into NETtime has saved us a ton of time and provides us with real-time data about our employees’ activities,” stated Gerac. “Our previous provider couldn’t give us that kind of access to the data and it required extra steps for us to bring their data into our workforce management system. NETtime has eliminated those manual steps and made us more efficient.”
“Schumacher Group is a visionary organization and leader in adopting cloud computing or SaaS,” said Bahan Sadegh, CEO and founder of NETtime Solutions. “NETtime and the other SaaS solutions they’ve implemented have given them a needed business continuity solution in the event of future natural disasters as well as data security and durability in a business environment subject to stringent regulations, such as HIPAA and the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).”
