The SEFA Group faced two major challenges: rapid growth in both geographic locations and in the number of employees, and the new reporting requirements with the Affordable CareAct. At the time, they were utilizing the functionality in the Microsoft DynamicsGP payroll module, which gets the job done but can be laborious.
The Greenshades Solution
Transportation and construction are high-turnover industries, so it was critical for SEFA to be able to manage employee benefits efficiently. They turned to the Greenshades Payroll,Tax, and HR Platform, with a specific focus on the tax filing center and the associated tax reporting capabilities.
According to Angelo Tremolada, SEFA’s Corporate Controller, “The tax filing capabilities have been a huge time saver for us.” Other efficiencies have come in the form of reduced employee requests for information coming to HR. Through the Greenshades Platform,SEFA team members are able to access their pay, tax, PTO balance, benefits, and various other points of data at any time and from anywhere.
The noteworthy impact of the Greenshades Platform has been the efficiencies created in the payroll taxes area. Specifically, paying, filing, and searching for payroll tax information (such as during an audit) became “a breeze” for SEFA.
- 93.75% improvement in a process that was taking four hours per week reduced to only15 minutes per week.
- 60% reduction in time spent on benefits management and reporting.
- 87% to 94% improvement in a quarterly filing process that has been reduced from two days to roughly one to two hours.
- 2 days a month saved (at least) with EDI feeds to medical, dental, and vision insurance providers. This has eliminated duplicate data entry when enrolling or terminating employees and improved the insurance invoice.
