Selection at 7,700 Bed Organization Extends Company’s Presence in Healthcare Market
LIVONIA, Mich. (September 25, 2012) – WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, today announced that Adventist Health System, a major healthcare organization, has selected the company’s EmpCenter® suite as part of an system-wide initiative to transform its HR and workforce management processes.
Founded in 1973, Adventist Health System is the largest not-for-profit Protestant healthcare provider in the nation. With a system spanning 43 campuses and 10 states, Adventist Health System needed a workforce management solution to automate time & attendance and absence & leave processes for a majority of its 55,000+ employees. Given the large and geographically dispersed nature of its workforce, Adventist Health System required a solution that could address the unique state-by-state wage and hour requirements – as well as all corporate and federal policies – at each location, yet deliver a centralized platform to make analysis, reporting, and compliance assurance processes simple, reliable, and complete.
Citing the flexibility and openness of the EmpCenter platform, as well as WorkForce Software’s innovative approach to data capture and employee engagement, Adventist Health System selected WorkForce Software’s EmpCenter 9 to meet the strategic needs of this successful and continually-growing healthcare organization.
“System flexibility and functional depth were critical factors in our extensive market evaluation,” commented Brent Snyder, CIO of Adventist Health System. “We believe that EmpCenter will provide us with a configurable solution that will allow for us to adapt to policy changes with minimal costs and effort.”
“The healthcare industry presents some rather unique workforce management challenges. From a diverse employee base to rapidly changing business needs, system flexibility and scalability are ‘must have’ traits for any HCM provider who wishes to serve the critical and growing needs of this industry,” said Lisa Rowan, program director, HR, Talent and Learning Strategies and Services for IDC. “A healthcare organization’s ability to improve the health of their patients – and the health of their bottom line – is directly tied to their ability to effectively manage a large and dynamic workforce.”
Adventist Health System also carefully considered ease of use, and gave EmpCenter top marks for its flexibility and simple design. The organization found that EmpCenter Engage, WorkForce Software’s next-generation, Android-based tablet for employee self-service and data collection needs, delivered an interactive and flexible user experience unlike anything else on the market.
Brent Snyder added, “Adventist Health System is committed to the employee experience, and EmpCenter offered a user-friendly solution. We are glad to be partnering with WorkForce Software and are confident that we will be successful together.”
Kevin Choksi, CEO and co-founder of WorkForce Software, said, “When Adventist Health System reached out to us to explore an enterprise workforce management solution, we immediately recognized a fit. Their vision of simplifying complex processes while also delivering a rich and compelling user experience is exactly what we had in mind when developing EmpCenter 9, our latest platform release. Effective workforce management is instrumental to healthcare delivery, and we anticipate this momentum to accelerate as other healthcare organizations adopt the strategic vision expressed by our partners at Adventist Health System.”
