Using a market leading proprietary Enterprise Resource Planning and payroll system running on a legacy server, Reddy Ice was collecting worker’s time and attendance data from over 300 field-based biometric time clocks and processing payroll via a leading software package. However, with minimal data validation and no ability to access analytics, it was impossible to examine the process in order to improve it. A team of more than 100 people was needed to normalize data and process payroll every two weeks, and the antiquated system was proving to be extremely time consuming, expensive and inefficient. “Our teams were often working until two o’clock in the morning to make sure payroll would be completed on time,” said Elliot Lester, vice president of IT for Reddy Ice.
The first step towards improving the process and maximum efficiency was to select a new Human Resources Information System (HRIS) provider. Focusing strictly on high performance cloud-based solutions that minimized requirements on internal IT resources, Reddy Ice selected Workday. Workday offered a powerful, yet easy to deploy and manage, automated solution for optimizing the company’s workforce across all endpoints.
