Addison Group Automates HR, Payroll and Benefits with Empower Software Solutions

ORLANDO, Fla. --(Business Wire)--

Empower Software Solutions, a leading provider of workforce and human resources (HR) solutions, has announced that Chicago-based Addison Group has implemented EmpowerHR/Pay™ to automate HR, payroll and benefits. The company is also in the process of implementing EmpowerTime™ for time and attendance tracking companywide.

Recently named as one of Chicago's Top 100 Workplaces by the Chicago Tribune, Addison Group, a leading provider of professional staffing and search services, came to Empower Software looking to automate a range of HR-related areas including payroll, HR, benefits and time tracking. With a current mix of 2,200 full-time employees and an ever-changing number of professionals on staffing assignments, Addison Group required flexible, high-performing solutions that could adapt to its evolving business needs. Specifically, the company anticipates adding 5,000 staff members as part of their growth plan. The company chose Empower Software because of its flexible solutions, high-touch client service model and competitive cost.

"While the solutions from Empower Software offer us the functionality and flexibility that help us adapt to the needs of our workforce we believe their client service model really sets them apart," says Ed Balogh, Corporate Controller of Addison Group. "As a company equally committed to client satisfaction, we feel Empower Software is a great fit for us."

Balogh continues, "With EmpowerHR/Pay we have already significantly decreased our manual processes and have more visibility into monthly costs due to Empower Software's fixed monthly charge."

"Scaling your workforce to contend with various changes in staffing and professional assignments creates a lot of variability for Addison Group," says Jim Hoefflin, President and CEO of Empower Software. "We are pleased that our solutions are helping alleviate some of the time-consuming manual processes associated with their business and we look forward to partnering with them in the future."
