Infor Brings Benefits of Workforce Management to Mid-Sized Businesses

Infor HCM Workforce Management Business Edition Streamlines HR Process to Help Reduce Costs, Improve Productivity and Ensure Compliance.

Atlanta, GA, October 17, 2008 --( Infor today announced the availability of Infor HCM Workforce Management Business Edition, a workforce management solution designed to meet the specific needs of mid-sized businesses with 1,000 to 5,000 employees. The new solution delivers enterprise-level Time & Attendance functionality to mid-sized businesses, with the simplicity, low maintenance and ease of use they require.

Rising regulatory pressures from the Family and Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act and Sarbanes-Oxley continue to raise questions of how to enforce accountability, create audit trails and ensure new processes are implemented throughout an organization. Today, Managers and Human Resource departments need an easier way to balance management of these processes while keeping customer service as a top priority and employees happy and engaged. They currently have limited software choices to manage these concerns – either deploy a large, customized solution, or rely on out-dated, error-prone manual processes.

“Mid-sized businesses must play by the same rules as their larger competitors—complex legislative constraints, company and union policies, and pay rules—but with a smaller budget,” said Dale Kennedy, workforce management product manager, Infor. “Infor HCM Workforce Management Business Edition delivers big business features and functionality in a pre-configured, quick-to-deploy and simple-to-maintain package. Today’s announcement underscores Infor’s commitment to providing solutions designed specifically for mid-sized businesses that also allows them to easily upgrade to enterprise versions as their business grows.”

Infor HCM Workforce Management Business Edition’s Time & Attendance functionality helps companies reduce costs, improve productivity and ensure compliance with external and internal regulations. The solution provides strategic insight into key workforce performance indicators using at-a-glance dashboards and advanced reporting, including hours worked, overtime, labor costs, and more. Pre-configured reports and alerts allow users to take advantage of previously hidden information to act immediately and improve decision-making.

The web-based solution streamlines processes and reduces payroll errors and overpayments by validating time and labor data in real-time and automating zero-to-gross pay calculations. In addition, tools such as the Pay Period Summary and Payroll Close Wizard expedite the time review and approval processes. The solution also offers advanced features such as retroactive adjustments, labor metrics and reporting.

Infor HCM Workforce Management Business Edition provides enterprise features, such as employee self-service, without the costs, customization and maintenance associated with large enterprise deployments. By removing many administrative functions from managers, more time and energy is spent focused on core business issues such as customer satisfaction and productivity.
