Streamline Workforce Management & Absence Management Processes for K-12 Institutions

Montoursville, PA and Livonia, Michigan – October 13, 2011 – WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, and CRS Advanced Technology, developer of the industry-leading SubFinder absence management and substitute placement solution, today announced a strategic alliance and software integration program which will streamline both absence management and time and attendance processes for K-12 institutions.

The integration between SubFinder and WorkForce Software’s EmpCenter workforce management suite will automate the process of transferring critical absence and substitute “time worked” data from SubFinder to the EmpCenter solution. This automated process eliminates the need for manual data entry and improves the accuracy of employee time, attendance and substitute scheduling processes, all of which are critical for payroll processing and other Human Resources functions.

“In today’s economy, K-12 school districts face a particularly challenging situation: contain costs while delivering a positive educational experience for students,” said Kathy Cannon, WorkForce Software co-founder and VP Product Management. “Through this partnership, we can help school systems to achieve these goals by transforming time-consuming and error-prone manual processes into a fully-automated, more accurate way to pay employees. As a result, administrative staff can focus more time – and more resources – on that which matters most: the students.”

“With more than two decades of serving the absence management needs of the K-12 community, and serving over 1,000 organizations, CRS understands the critical back-office needs of educational institutions,” said Pete Lupacchino, Vice President and General Manager of CRS. “By partnering with companies like WorkForce Software that share the goal of simplifying and improving administrative functions within these organizations, we can provide integrated solutions to deliver a potent cost-cutting and time-saving combination.”
