Perkins Eastman Architects a More Efficient Workforce with Epicor HCM®

Global Architecture and Engineering Firm Selects Epicor HCM to Manage Workforce

District of Columbia (PRWEB) September 7, 2010 – HRMS Solutions announces that Perkins Eastman, a global Architecture and Engineering firm, has selected Epicor HCM by Epicor Software Corporation to manage their organization’s workforce.

For Perkins Eastman, the key to finding a winning HRIS system was choosing one that worked seamlessly with the new project management system.

“One of the main reasons for choosing Epicor HCM was the ease of integration with Deltek Vision®. It was really important to find a solution that would give us a one-stop shop. Now we can do everything we need to do in the HRIS system, and it automatically gets distributed to the other systems within our enterprise including Deltek Vision and ADP,” HR Manager, Tracy Maher explains.

“Like so many of our other architectural and engineering clients that leverage Deltek Vision, integration of a 3rd party HRIS plays a significant part in selecting a vendor,” explains Mike Maiorino, President of HRMS Solutions. “The web-services integration from Epicor HCM to the Info Center within Deltek Vision eliminates the typical data redundancy and integration concerns of any two systems.”

With Epicor HCM, the Perkins Eastman HR department now has a global HRIS to automate, manage, and analyze employee data from candidates applying online to employees retiring, all from one point of data entry and common user interface within the Epicor HCM system. “Everything we did was either in a spreadsheet or Word document, or through e-mail,” Maher, recalls the cumbersome manual process. “There were numerous steps involved in any new hire and multiple places where the information had to be entered about the employee. We had to enter them in the payroll system, the accounting system, add them to another spreadsheet where we tracked salaries, and yet another spreadsheet where we tracked employee identification numbers. The list goes on and on.”

Maher appreciates the new paperless system to review resumes and search for the skills and qualities they look for in employees. “The applicant tracking system has just been wonderful. Searching resumes is so much easier now, as is keeping track of all our candidates. The ability to collect everything into one place and to find it easily is amazing,” explains Maher.

As for Epicor HCM, Maher can’t say enough about how happy she is to work with it. “It’s been a terrific system to use. Coming from no system, it’s a dream to have Epicor HCM. And to have Epicor HCM work so well with our other systems—it’s just really wonderful.”

“We would definitely recommend HRMS Solutions to other firms,” Maher relates. “They know the HR technology business and the workforce management marketplace, and they’ve done enough work with A & E firms to really understand our business. They’ve been terrific.”
