We have solved all of our payroll and HR challenges with Computer Guidance’s eCMS v.4.0 and have established a strong foundation for future growth

Computer Guidance Corporation, the leading developer of ERP software solutions for the construction industry, today published a new customer success story from Clark Builders that illustrates the reaping of quantitative and qualitative benefits by automating and streamlining the company’s end-to-end payroll process leveraging Hosted eCMS v.4.0 applications.

Clark Builders, a Turner company based in Edmonton, Canada, has experienced a 482% growth in headcount in the past 12 years. The general contractor, with over 1,000 full time employees, provides commercial, institutional, light industrial, industrial and residential construction services with three locations in Edmonton, Calgary and Saskatoon to serve Western Canada. Some of their differentiating factors include self-performance of most of their jobs, including unique metal work, as well as managing the materials and equipment logistics including transportation for their construction projects.

“With our exponential growth, challenges have surfaced which we had to address quickly and for the long term,” said Dean Doige, Chief Information Officer of Clark Builders. “With company-wide collaboration, we easily concluded that our enterprise-wide payroll processes must be improved to eliminate payroll errors, reduce payroll paperwork and eradicate all manual processes associated with the entry, processing and distribution of payroll. We have solved all of our challenges with Computer Guidance’s eCMS v.4.0 and have established a strong foundation for future growth.”

The customer success story explains how Clark Builders has automated and streamlined the organization’s entire payroll and human resources processes by integrating and optimizing several Computer Guidance ERP software applications, including payroll, human resources, eForms, document imaging, workflow, archival, integration suite and Tableau business intelligence. The benefits received have been tremendous:

  •     75% processing efficiency increase in payroll error auditing and correction, and timesheet entry
  •     85% efficiency improvements in employee personnel information capture, maintenance and availability
  •     100% automation of employee onboarding process
  •     Automated distribution of payroll records to 95% of employees, saving over $75,000 annually
  •     Eliminated paper-based documentation of payroll information, saving over $52,000 annually
  •     Empowered business users with on-demand access and built-in alerts of payroll errors and other related data
  •     Increased payroll processing capacity where no additional overhead is needed even if payroll reaches four times its current levels

“Clark Builders’ cost savings and automation success has been achieved by utilizing the power and flexibility of eCMS,” stated Mike Bihlmeier, President, Computer Guidance Corporation. “All contractors can benefit from reduced operating costs and improved productivity but the underlying gains that are so often overlooked include increased confidence in the accuracy and timeliness of payroll and HR data, higher user and overall company satisfaction, improved financial reporting, and tighter controls for smoother auditing and meeting on-going compliance requirements.”
