Tackling legacy HR and payroll processes
Isaac Construction had a number of complex payroll and HR processes that relied heavily on manual systems. These, unfortunately, fell short in the performance stakes and held the company back in its drive for perfection.
Timesheets were completed by employees that only captured daily stop/start information, which were then sent to managers for approval. The system wasn’t tailored to the needs of different employee groups and didn’t encapsulate or report on job costings. On-the-job use of plant items, like trucks, forklifts, diggers and graders, wasn’t automatically logged, and mobile access to timesheets and approvals was a no-go.
A fully-featured, modern HR and payroll application was the obvious choice to capture the kind of accurate, real-time information necessary to keep the business moving up.
The importance of a solid partnership
Isaac Construction selected MYOB PayGlobal as their new payroll and HR solution in 2014, and engaged Fusion5 as their implementation and support partner.
As the leading independent provider of PayGlobal services across Australia and New Zealand, Fusion5 works with well-known organisations with unique and complex operational and payroll needs. Customers range in size from a few hundred employees to over 5,000.
The partnership decision proved to be a good one for the business, says Arlee Folkers, Isaac Construction’s CFO (and a former PayGlobal contractor). “Fusion5 met all our requirements. They helped us successfully implement PayGlobal and — importantly — supported us going forward.”
The initial PayGlobal project went so well, and the ongoing support was so consistent and valuable, that Isaac Construction had no hesitation in turning to Fusion5 for other solutions.
Recently, Folkers asked Fusion5 to implement TimeFiler to replace an intensive manual timesheet process. The web-based time management system successfully cut out the close managerial attention previously required throughout each project.
“Working with Fusion5 to implement PayGlobal got us the desired outcome — and it was seamless, it went extremely well,” says Folkers. “So, when it came to implementing TimeFiler a couple of years after go-live with PayGlobal, we naturally decided that we would go with them again.”
And she’s more than happy having made that decision.
