Dilemma: The HR Benefits & Communication system used to administer Health, Dental, Vision, Life and FSA benefits has numerous gaps including lack of self-service, inadequate reporting for multi-employer needs, no file feed to G/L for invoicing and deposits, duplicated and inconsistent employee data between the benefit and payroll systems.
Solution: Standardized the payroll, timekeeping and benefits to one single platform that supports a multi-employer environment, eliminates multiple feeds from 100+ entities for ACA reporting and provides a long term sustainable platform.
Result: Reduced payroll processing time by more than 50%, significant reduction of payroll defects and moved to a single employee record. Providing a means for measuring progress and increasing accountability.
Dilemma: High degree of customer backlog in processing orders caused by multiple technology platforms.
Solution: Standardized technology from multiple platforms to single core channels by line of business and implemented processes and methodologies using PMBOK practices.
Result: Reduced project cycle time from 22 days to 3 days, decreased defect rates by 68% and improved customer experience with a net cost savings of $1.8M.
Dilemma: Difficulty for the N. American Sales force to efficiently meet with physicians and medical staff due to aging technology. Delayed communications with home office and inefficient consolidation of client account data to help drive sales strategies.
Solution: Converted from Siebel to iSales CRM to enable the N. American sales staff with mobile technology. Enabled integrated technology across the sales force and back office.
Result: Decreased office time and increased sales rep and doctor visit ratios resulting in $4.5M annualized savings.
Dilemma: Loss of market share for leadership product in domestic and international markets.
Solution: Re-prioritized resources and alignment strategy by identifying gaps in regulatory environment, platform architecture and customer demand.
Result: Increased market share by 21%, re-positioning corporate sales strategy.
