Hotel Saves Thousands Annually by Switching from ADP to In-House HR and Payroll Solution from Dresser & Associates and Sage Abra.
Scarborough, Maine – January 20, 2010 – Dresser & Associates, the country’s leading Sage Abra HRMS solution provider, announced another successful implementation of Sage Abra, this time for the Royal Sonesta Boston Hotel. The hotel switched from its outsourced payroll provider, ADP, to the Sage Abra Payroll module, and added the solution’s integrated HR and Attendance components. As a result, the hotel is saving thousands annually while delivering better service to its 275+ employees.
By switching to an in-house payroll solution, Royal Sonesta Boston is saving thousands of dollars every year in outsourcing costs, while gaining full control of the company’s sensitive employee data. The hotel previously used stand-alone HR software, meaning that the company’s Payroll and HR departments each maintained their own separate databases which led to a tremendous amount of duplication and inefficiency.
“We’ve bridged the divide between HR and Payroll. Data only needs to be entered once and both departments have access to the same data,” said Paul Nichols, payroll administrator for Royal Sonesta Boston. “We’ve reduced the number of questions asked between the departments and are saving a significant amount of time as a result of the integration.”
Dresser & Associates implemented a link program that imports data from the hotel’s electronic time clocks into the Sage Abra Attendance module, eliminating time-consuming data entry tasks and providing the hotel with a single solution to address all of its human resource management requirements.
“We have a great relationship with Dresser,” added Nichols. “I can call and speak to a representative that knows me, understands our business, and has a complete knowledge of the software and the industry. With ADP, I was known as a company code. With Dresser & Associates, I’m Paul.”
