Eagan, MN (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
The first DayPay module was recently implemented at Labor Solutions, LLC as part of Enterprise, a full range of front and back office functions developed specifically for the staffing industry. TempWorks Software developed the new module to meet the specific requirements of Labor Solutions, and provided on-site implementation and training.
Day pay is a challenge for any system.
Based in Chicago, IL and with offices in Illinois, Wisconsin and Arkansas, Labor Solutions issues about 1,000 employee checks per week.
Though workers arrive at Labor Solutions seeking job assignments at various times during the day, the firm had no software-based system for tracking and storing important information such as employee identification, work orders, returns or previous employee-client histories. The staff would simply choose from the available pool of in-person workers, write the work orders on paper and supply workers with copies for that work day.
Time to get to work.
Development was based on addressing a number of potential revenue loss points in daily staff dispatching. Labor Solutions realized that writing work orders on paper is not a viable long-term solution.
An additional challenge for TempWorks involved adapting the new dispatcher module to work with the hand scanner that Labor Solutions needed to use to quickly identify available employees.
In addition to development, the TempWorks implementation team worked tirelessly to migrate nearly a decade of previous employee data, plus detailed tax information into the Enterprise front and back office systems.
Employees now “punch in” by swiping their hands across the scanner, which identifies them and matches them to their TempWorks ID numbers in the Enterprise system. This works from hand scanners at each dispatching office as well as from those at Labor Solutions client locations.
Labor Solutions staff can easily view all available employees on the module dashboard. Icons signify at-a-glance information such as employee pay-readiness, employee returns and previous employee experience by client.
When the user issues payment, the information in the DayPay module works seamlessly with the Enterprise payroll system for fast, accurate payment. It also connects with electronic invoicing functions such as Timecard Linker, which allows the client to print invoices and their corresponding timecards together for faster verification and payment.
“It’s exciting that we were able to solve the varying needs of our client who, at the time, was completely paper-based,” said David Dourgarian, president of TempWorks Software. “The dispatcher module is a terrific example of our combined core strengths: our knowledge of software development and our knowledge of the staffing industry.”
Mike Nix, CFO at Labor Solutions, says that the impact has been immediate. “For the first time in five years, management can see real-time activity in at each of our labor halls,” said Nix. “I can pull up each office and see who has hand scanned in, what jobs are partially filled and which are fully filled. It’s all right in front of me at any time.”
