With their previous solution, De’Longhi America’s HR Manager, Roseann Gordon spent too much time trying to navigate the system’s complicated interface, which impacted the amount of time and cost of managing day-to-day HR-related tasks.
“Because I am the sole member of our HR department, I knew I wanted to automate payroll and mange benefits more effectively, but with a less cumbersome and more cost effective system,” explained Gordon. “Among the solutions we considered, CheckPoint HR fit our business processes and it was apparent that it would allow us to improve our HR service delivery while significantly reducing costs.”
Within a matter of weeks, De’Longhi America was fully operational on the CheckPoint HR platform. Gordon praised the “seamless and effortless” implementation. “There was no downtime during transition to the new system and by the very next pay period, our entire payroll was completed flawlessly through CheckPoint HR,” she said. Gordon also commended the ease at which she navigates the module to retrieve reports and employee information such as anniversary dates and birthdays, and update employee verification forms.
In addition, De’Longhi America has been utilizing CheckPoint HR’s insurance affiliate, The Wilshire Group to optimize its employee benefits. The Wilshire Group proactively manages the company’s employee benefits plan and has consistently delivered the most cost-effective rates.
“The Wilshire Group does a phenomenal job presenting us with an array of options that fit the needs of our employees and guides us through the process of selecting the best plan for our business,” added Gordon. “Our employees’ benefits have improved drastically since our use of The Wilshire Group.”
“In today's economic climate it is imperative that benefits plans are reviewed on a quarterly basis to ensure their success,” said Patrick Carragher, CheckPoint HR partner. “Over the past five years we have been able to implement a long term benefits plan with De’Longhi that has provided its employees with significant advantages.”
Looking ahead, De’Longhi America plans to expand its use of CheckPoint HR by utilizing the employee self-service functionality. The company also plans to install kiosks throughout its offices to encourage the use of the system.
