Hyson Products uses Replicon to streamline HR processes and save money

Hyson Products, part of the Barnes Group, is based in Brecksville, Ohio, and manufactures precision springs, stampings, and custom metal products for aerospace and industrial applications.

Before Replicon—manual procedures wasted time and effort

Before Hyson started using Replicon, the HR department had to collect paper timesheets submitted by nearly 100 employees, manually transcribe all the data into a spreadsheet, and then run each timesheet through a scanner. The spreadsheet and scanned timesheets had to be emailed to the financial accounting team, which used the data to process the firm’s payroll. This manual process took up to 16 hours each week, and created errors and recurring administrative snafus.

When it came to employee time off applications, a similarly cumbersome system was used, which involved filling out paper request forms for approval by managers, after which the payroll department entered the approval in a spreadsheet. If an employee wanted to find out how much accrued time off was available, the HR team again had to manually compute the data from their records. All these manual processes not only took up valuable time that HR staff could have used for higher-value tasks, but also jeopardized the company’s ability to stay in compliance with a plethora of labor regulations.

After Replicon—cloud-based system provides benefits at each step

Hyson Products started using Replicon TimeAttend about a year ago, and the solution paid for itself in just 2 months. Now, instead of collecting paper timesheets and manually keying into spreadsheets for calculation, with Replicon the company is able to capture time for the entire pay period on one screen, create approval workflows, and then send data to the payroll department at corporate HQ with just a few clicks. According to Dwight Warner, the company’s assistant controller, “As a cloud-based time tracking solution, nothing comes close to matching Replicon for ease-of-use, low total cost of ownership, and real-time analytics. The integrity of our transactions has increased greatly, and we can more easily comply with labor laws. It’s been a huge asset to the company.”
