Client Saves $250,000 in Annual Payroll Costs
Using Time Systems, LLRG saved one if its key clients $250,000 in annual payroll costs. The client has more than 300 employees and 30 plus locations throughout Texas. Employees were on the honor system for reporting time to the payroll department through various paper-based methods, which created two problems: 1) collecting time from every employee took an inordinate amount of time, and 2) owners had no way of telling whether their payrolls were being paid on actual hours worked.
“After doing a comprehensive study, the amount of overtime being paid compared to the industry average was outrageous,” said Chris Roberts, Director for LLRG. “When all the numbers were totaled, we found the company could save $250,000 a year in payroll costs. That is a significant amount for any size company, let alone small business.” After seeing the amount of savings, the company asked LLRG to rollout Time Systems using TimeWorksPlus with a biometric clock system.
LLRG rolled out their new Time Systems solution in phases over 90 days to let managers and employees adjust to the new system, learn about the differences by having the manual and automated processes run in parallel, and make needed adjustments as the automated system was rolled out.
The results were even greater than expected. In addition to achieving cost savings of $250,000 a year, the two full-time payroll employees reduced more than two days of work to just 30-60 minutes every payroll period by not having to call each location, follow up with managers and employees for time sheets, and enter information manually.
Automating the process freed payroll managers to do more strategic work for the company. The company can also make better labor decisions by having data such as who is approaching overtime and who has more time to work. And finally, payrolls are more accurate because most manual entry mistakes are eliminated.
“The ability for our partners to seamlessly integrate our workforce management solutions into their offerings is key to achieving these type of client results,” said Terry James, Director of Marketing for SwipeClock. “LLRG is a great example of how to successfully roll out time and attendance solutions that enable SMBs to save significant costs and allow payroll staff to focus on more strategic tasks than following up with employees to submit their time cards.”
