Ease of Configuration, Rapid Implementation and Comprehensive Support Services Cited as Key Selection Criteria
Livonia, Mich., January 27, 2010 – WorkForce Software, Inc., the leader in workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labour policies and compliance concerns, announces Ensign Energy Services Inc., Canada’s second largest land-based drilling contractor, selected its EmpCenter® workforce management suite to support their workforce by automating their highly complex time and attendance and activity based costing requirements.
“Selecting the right workforce management provider was critical in making sure our greatest asset – our employees – received accurate pay, on time, every time,” said Murray Paton, Ensign’s HRIS project manager. “Because we have highly complex premium and pay rule structures that vary by contract, we needed a system that would automate all of our requirements to eliminate human error. After an extensive evaluation process we ultimately determined that WorkForce Software could fully meet the needs of our complex labour environment.”
During the past 11 years, Ensign’s revenue grew four times in size; it expanded its oilfield services offering and began operating in international markets. As a result, the company’s workforce environment changed dramatically and introduced additional layers of workforce management complexity. Ensign chose WorkForce Software’s EmpCenter because it could support the various labour and business requirements across borders as well as the varying rules and requirements that are contract driven and unique to each client.
“System flexibility and configurability was a critical piece in our selection process and WorkForce Software was the only solution that could meet and automate 100% of our labour requirements,” continued Mr. Paton. “No other vendor offered us the ability to change our labour policies on-demand and without customization. EmpCenter will enable us to better allocate our HR and payroll resources and ultimately refine our workforce management processes while keeping employee satisfaction high.”
“WorkForce Software specializes in automating the most complex labour policies,” said Kevin Choksi, president and CEO of WorkForce Software. “When other vendors can’t, we can. The configurability of our EmpCenter workforce management solution allows us to meet any requirement as well as give Ensign the ability to change labour polices to meet the needs of individual customers. We’re proud to play an ongoing role in Ensign’s continued growth strategy.”
