MoreDirect Transforms its HR Function with the Help of ADP Workforce Now®

MoreDirect, Inc. began in the early 1990s as a business-to-business hardware reseller. Today, the Florida-based company provides a broad range of IT hardware, software, and services to private-sector companies with 2,000 or more employees throughout the United States. As the company grew, so did its need to support a larger—and geographically diverse—workforce. The current footprint of MoreDirect’s employee base covers 30 states, and the vast majority of its 350 employees work out of their homes. Prior to Grisell Martinez, Senior Human Resources and Payroll Manager, joining MoreDirect in 2004, the company used QuickBooks to do payroll and HR was the traditional paper mill of forms governed by manual processes and procedures. “We used to be a very transactional, paperwork-driven department,” she recalls. MoreDirect, Inc. solved this problem by choosing ADP Workforce Now® and its single-sign-on integrated platform solution for HR, payroll, performance and compensation management, recruiting management, and analytics. The HR department can now focus on its key initiative—recruiting new employees. Martinez says, “We’re definitely spending more of our...

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...

Heritage Bank: Managing Growth with a Single, Integrated Platform

Founded in 1927, Heritage Bank, a leading community bank in the Pacific Northwest, is focused on helping its customers build their dreams in their local communities. Shannon Carson, assistant vice president and human resource information system (HRIS) officer for Heritage Bank, joined the company 12 years ago when the bank had about 150 employees. By 2014, as a result of mergers, acquisitions and organic growth, the employee base grew to about 800. Carson discusses the growing pains that accompanied that rapid growth, particularly around trying to scale employee processes and engagement, and how ADP Workforce Now® helped address those challenges. “When we do hire great employees, we don’t want to lose them.

We can also use that information to monitor levels of engagement.” To learn more about how Heritage Bank managed their rapid growth with a single, integrated platform from ADP, click here.
