It’s nice to work with a payroll company that works hard to accommodate the specific needs of its clients instead of expecting them to fit into one generic mold. The transition to APS was so seamless that our employees didn’t even know we made a change until we introduced them to the new employee self service site.
When the organization decided it was time to make a change, Horne said that the following criteria guided The Arc’s selection of a new payroll company:
- More customized features to meet reporting needs.
- Cost effecitve technology with flexibility to scale with growth.
- Easy-to-use and accessible platform to save time.
- Solution that is customizable to specific business needs.
- Reporting tools that support strong management intelligence.
Accommodation of specific payroll needs.
GSCS selected APS as its new provider and ran its first payroll in January of 2012.
“APS was able to customize features to meet our requirements. For example, GSCS wanted multiple classifications for vacation accruals and APS was able to come up with a solution. The APS system also allows us to include reimbursements, which has saved us valuable time. It’s nice to work with a payroll company that works hard to accommodate the specific needs of its clients instead of expecting them to fit into one generic mold.”
Intuitive and user-friendly reporting and dasbhoards.
Shih described APS OnLine as very intuitive and user-friendly.
“The reporting suite is comprehensive and if I need to run a special report, I just contact my APS representative. The APS team is very helpful and responsive.”
Empowered and engaged employees.
The APS employee self-service site, eSELFSERVE.COM, has also been a favorite feature with employees, according to Shih.
“Our employees can access their own payroll information from anywhere. They have really enjoyed this convenience. The transition to APS was so seamless that our employees didn’t even know we made a change until we introduced them to the new employee self-service site.”
