Learn how 1-800-Got-Junk simplified time off tracking
1-800-GOT-JUNK? is a full service junk removal company that removes obstacles and de-clutters lives. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? collects household appliances, furniture, yard debris, and other rubbish. Its professional crews also recycle and donate to families and organizations in need. Established in 1989, 1- 800-GOT-JUNK? has grown from one location in Vancouver to over 250 franchise locations internationally. The company has been featured on Oprah, USA Today, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and the Associated Press.
Previously, the head office at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? relied on one person to manually administer time-off requests, accruals, and balances on Excel spreadsheets and paper-based systems. However, as the company continued to grow, the maintenance of time-off requests and balances had become too labor intensive and prone to inaccuracies.
“We needed a system where employees could see their own vacation balances themselves, rather than always having to ask the payroll department or their manager” explained Harpreet Sandhu, Payroll and Benefits Administrator for 1- 800-GOT-JUNK? in Vancouver, British Columbia. “Our system was not efficient before; we had one person looking after so many people’s vacations.”
Sandhu explained that Replicon, Inc. was their vendor of choice because Web TimeOff (now Web TimeSheet Time & Attendance Edition) comprised all of the significant features they needed.
“Since it is web-based, all employees could log-in online and access the program” said Sandhu. The multi-level yet easy-to-use reporting function also highly appealed to them.
Since implementing TimeOff, Sandhu recognizes more time-saving benefits for administrators, managers, and employees. Their previous time-off tracking system was error-prone and time consuming. With Web TimeOff, administrators save a lot of time. Managers, for instance, no longer have to enter in days away for their employees because employees can now do this task themselves. Sandhu also noticed a rapid adoption process because Web TimeOff is easy-to-use.
