AACOG Moves their Organization Forward with Help from ADP Workforce Now®

AACOG Moves their Organization Forward with Help from ADP Workforce Now®

Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG), established in 1967, is a voluntary association of local governments and organizations that serves its members through planning, information and coordination activities. John Clamp, chief financial officer for AACOG, was brought into the organization in 2015 to help bring AACOG to the next level. When he joined, AACOG utilized a number of legacy systems that didn’t speak to one another and employed disjointed processes that needed to be addressed to help the organization with many of its stringent reporting requirements. From a strategic standpoint, it was imperative that AACOG unify its systems under one integrated platform for reporting purposes. AACOG decided to bring in ADP Workforce Now® as the core system, integrating payroll, benefits, time and attendance and HR on a single platform. “We’ve taken our closing process from 12 days to six days, which gives us time back to analyze what we’re doing and provide more quantitative, actionable information to our board of directors,” Clamp said. “That’s how you move an organization...

Education Affiliates Turns to ADP to Streamline Payroll, HR, Time and Attendance and Recruiting Processes

Education Affiliates Turns to ADP to Streamline Payroll, HR, Time and Attendance and Recruiting Processes

After years of rapid growth and many acquisitions, Education Affiliates realized that having disparate HR and payroll systems in each of its more than 45 locations across the United States proved to be inefficient and costly. Having decentralized payroll and HR systems, made it difficult to standardize processes and have visibility into workforce data. To solve for this, the company implemented ADP Vantage HCM®, an integrated cloud-based human capital management solution. “Having our payroll, time and attendance, HR and recruiting information all on one easy-to-navigate platform, has been a game changer,” said Lydia Chodnicki, director of Payroll at Education Affiliates. “Prior to ADP®, everything was done on paper. Our time system wasn’t connected to our various payroll systems so importing and exporting payroll information would habitually cause problems. Since we’ve gotten rid of manual processes, I now can see and pull payroll data in real-time so I’m no longer putting out fires, but rather preventing them with relative ease.” “Within the first year of partnering with ADP, we saved...

Helping KIPP Houston Public Schools Spend More Time on What Matters

Helping KIPP Houston Public Schools Spend More Time on What Matters

KIPP Houston Public Schools has a mission with a heart the size of Texas – to help underprivileged students get to and through college. With 28 schools in Houston alone, they currently staff over 1,700 employees, many of them teachers. To support these teachers and the rest of the KIPP staff is a team of 25 HR and payroll professionals, led by Chief Talent Officer, Chuck Fimble. Together, the ADP team and KIPP team worked to identify and implement solutions for their struggles. They began enhancing and automating processes one by one, from payroll to benefits to time and labor. To reduce the risk of errors regarding employee information, KIPP implemented the self-service feature within ADP Workforce Now®. Employees could now control and access their own information, which not only increased accuracy but reduced time and labor for the HR team. Say Chuck Fimble, “At the end of the day, ADP allows us to focus on what really matters in our day-to-day lives. I don’t have to spend a...

ADP Helps Guide Sika Through a Rapid Growth Spurt

ADP Helps Guide Sika Through a Rapid Growth Spurt

Sika North America likes to grow – quickly. In the past five years alone, it took on the payrolls for seven acquisitions, expanding its workforce from 868 to approximately 1,500. With workers spread across 45 states, keeping pace with payroll changes is a challenge. Lisa Panagos, Payroll Manager at Sika North America, has one direct report to help her process three weekly and four semi-monthly multistate payrolls, which include union and nonunion employees. “We grow by acquisition. It’s been a very reliable, successful strategy,” says Panagos, “but because of that, we don’t grow it slowly. It’s more like leaps and bounds. And because we grow by acquisition, our payroll complexity can change in unforeseen ways.” As Sika North America’s payroll complexity increased, Panagos says her department required a more robust solution. As a result, Sika migrated to ADP Workforce Now® to meet their more complex needs for payroll, time and labor management and paid time off (PTO). To read more about how Sika flourished during their growth spurt, click...
