Newport Pagnell, Bucks, UK, February 21, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - AAF International, a leading manufacturer and marketer of comm ercial air filtration products, has successfully deployed Carval Computing’s complete HR Unity portfolio of integrated Payroll, HR, Self-Service and Tim e and Attendance software solutions. AAF is u sing the software to streamline its HR administration and payroll software processes and support the company’s People Centred Managem ent (PCM) m ethodology . Ju st fo ur months after installing the new system, AAF has noticed a series of significant benefits including valuable tim e savings.
For the last 10 years, the company had outsou rced its payroll processes to a bureau, while its personnel administration system was heavily paper-based and tim e-consuming. After reviewing several vendors and conducting a series of cu stom er reference visits, AAF decided to invest in Carval to modernise the organisation’s people processes.
Tracey Johnston, Payroll & Benefits Officer at AAF International comm ented, First impressions count and, from the beginning, it was clear that Carval offered the type of ongoing rapport and excellent after sales support w e needed. They make cu stom ers feel special, involving them in future product developm ent and automatically upgrading them to the latest versions of their software. As an added bonu s, and one that sets Carval apart from the competition, their technology supports all o ur Payroll, T&A and Payroll software processes in a single, totally integrated system at no extra cost.
Despite a major data migration project that involved transferring 20 years of paper records onto the Carval system, the smooth implem entation process m eant that AAF was up and running very quickly. The company first introduced Uniwage (Payroll software) at the beginning of the new tax year follow ed swiftly by Unistaff (HR software), Unitend (T&A software) and Unity Online (Self-Service) in June 2013. AAF’s intensive and ti ly training programm e that encompassed all 320 employees encou raged widespread adoption of the new technology.
In ju st fo ur months AAF has realised significant tim e savings. The automation provided by Carval has saved one whole working day every month managing holidays and reduced the tim e taken to conduct payroll activities by an impressive 25%.
Furthermore, the introduction of Carval has impacted positively on employee morale. Staff are actively embracing Carval Unitend becau se clocking in and out provides transparency making their hard work clearly visible and subsequently recognised. Additionally, clocking provides the m eans for Managers and Supervisors to have full visibility of their team’s tim e and attendance records should they need to address any issues.
To support the company’s PCM approach, AAF has deployed Carval’s Self-Service software to create an online portal called urHR which staff can access easily, at any tim e and from anywhere to check their personal and em ergency contact details, view their own clockings, book their annual leave view and print their payslips and even check when their colleagues are on holiday all in real-tim e.
John Ovington, Sales and Support Director at Carval Computing said; Comm ercial organisations such as AAF are continually striving to find new ways to drive efficiencies, maximise resou rces and reduce costs. They rely on o ur integrated technology to effectively manage all HR/employee related processes and information from a single platform and deliver quick wins that prove the real value of technology to the organisation. In a very short space of tim e, AAF has u sed HR Unity to support the very heart of its corporate HR fram ework and release valuable tim e savings back into the bu siness.
