Calgary, AB (PRWEB) July 11, 2006 — Replicon, Inc., the corporate time and expense tracking vendor of choice for businesses, today announced that employees, managers, and administrators at TruStar Federal Credit Union—Minnesota’s financial cooperative—are enjoying a multitude of benefits with Web TimeOff. These benefits include simple deployment, rapid adoption with ease of use, total time off visibility with master calendar views, and many more.
Previously, administrators at TFCU manually tracked and entered time off requests, balances and accruals through paper trails and Excel spreadsheets. According to Debra Jackson, Vice President of Human Resources and Support at TFCU, one person was responsible for manually tracking all employees’ time off. Then, ten managers had to manually track their own time off because there was no centralized mechanism to access current time off statuses. Over time, it became apparent that their in-house paper trail method was “burdensome.”
“Requests weren’t always documented, resulting in incorrect data. We had to try and rely on internal emails such as ‘Deb J. is gone for the day’ to make sure we then got a paper form that was approved by the manager,” explained Jackson. “Managers did not have access to their direct reports and time off status when they needed it. There was a lack of an easily accessed, current calendar of current time off for approving requests and taking member service coverage into consideration.”
Transitioning from traditional time off to Paid Time Off, the company needed to find an efficient solution to remove all vacation tracking obstacles and ensure a successful shift into PTO.
For six months team members from HR, Payroll, Management, and Operations at TFCU evaluated several possible solutions. Jackson said that Replicon was “heads above knowing their product during the demo” and Web TimeOff’s product expert was “very professional in her delivery and quickly responded to their questions or concerns.”
“Since we had been searching and reviewing other software for about six months, it was real easy to make the decision to go with Replicon,” said Jackson. “The e-mail feature was the deal closer … Replicon is a professional company to work with and is willing to help us meet 100% of our needs.”
TFCU successfully and easily deployed Web TimeOff in just a few days. Jackson said that their experience with implementation, deployment, training and support has been a positive one. They are now enjoying the benefits of the product in its entirety.
