City prioritizes flexibility and ease of use to maximize efficiencies

Livonia, Michigan – September 20, 2011 – WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labour policies and stringent compliance demands, announces that The City of Red Deer, Alberta has selected EmpCenter to streamline workforce management for its 1,600 employees.

Operating 19 divisions and providing a full range of health, recreation, and safety services, the city required a flexible and robust web-based solution to ensure automation of all pay rules and policies across the organization.  Red Deer planned to leverage employee self-service as an efficiency driver, making ease of use paramount, as well.  After a thorough evaluation of best-of-breed solutions, EmpCenter was the unanimous choice.

“The benefits that EmpCenter provides help us eliminate paper and deliver true self-service,” stated Michelle Andrew, Red Deer’s Project Manager. “This program will allow employees to quickly manage their time and create efficiencies within the organization.”

Centrally located between Calgary and Edmonton, Red Deer represents the middle of a strong economic corridor that boasts a growing economy and burgeoning manufacturing, retail, agriculture, and petrochemical industries, among others.  The city joins dozens of municipalities that have adopted EmpCenter to streamline workforce management activities including time and attendance, labour scheduling, and labour analytics, and represents another example of WorkForce Software’s momentum in Canada.

“In conversations with organizations across industries, we’re finding that total cost of ownership (TCO) is the prevailing theme, and ease of use – the surest indication of high employee adoption – is gaining ever higher attention,” added Travis Burke, WorkForce Software’s Vice President of Business Development. “EmpCenter’s clean user interface and standards-based technology, which directly affect adoption and TCO, are significant reasons for our historic rate of client acquisition in 2011.”
