automated scheduling system

Challenge
Alliance Business Solutions is a leading nationwide provider of business insurance, health insurance, employee benefit packages, HR, and payroll services. Their clients are business owners who wear multiple hats and work long hours to be sure that customers are satisfied and payroll is met week after week. Focus on these areas ordinarily leaves little time to manage the largest and most important part of the business—labor. For example, many small business owners log employee time and attendance and coordinate scheduling on computer spreadsheets, calendars, or even paper time cards.

While these operations can get the job done, they come with multiple issues. For example, extra time spent following up with associates to find out the hours they worked could be spent on more crucial tasks. In addition increased errors from manual processes often lead to costly and needless overtime. Andconversations between employees and supervisors about important topics like vacation time or the need to swap shifts often results in misunderstandings that influence productivity and retention.

Solution
Alliance Business Solutions recently expanded its offerings to include the same workforce management solutions found in Workforce Management Suite. The suite includes TimeClock for automated timekeeping and attendance tracking, TimeSimplicity for advanced scheduling, and TimeWorks Mobile to enable on-the-go timekeeping for both managers and their employees. The complete set of integrated solutions help businesses increase profits and become even more competitive. Alliance Business Solutions is now more effectively helping their clients replace manual processes and become more efficient with workforce management solutions. By helping their clients solve their troubles, Alliance Business Solutions’ clients are more satisfied, and staying longer.

Results
Alliance Business Solutions has grown 30% annually since offering the new workforce management solutions. This growth has come from two main sources. First, Alliance Business Solutions can cross-sell its current small business clients with state-of-the art solutions to automate timekeeping and scheduling. Second, the company’s expanded end-to-end offerings allow it to successfully pursue larger companies that aren’t happy with the service they receive from the big payroll providers.

“Essentially, timekeeping and scheduling are new arrows in our quiver to go after both small businesses and larger clients.” James “JJ” Jagels, Vice President of Alliance Business Solutions

Timekeeping and scheduling are also ‘sticky.’ So, in addition to adding more clients, Alliance Business Solutions retains them longer. With the new solutions, the company reduced its turnover rate significantly, which ensures a steady revenue stream and a strong base from which to grow even further. “The ability to add new clients and keep them longer is a powerful combination that helps fuel our growth and profitability,” said Jagels.
