Sage HRMS Tied HR Data Together Into One Seamless System

Gold Quote

Timesheet, mileage and expense data is completely integrated with Sage HRMS ESS and Sage HRMS Payroll. This is saving us at least $8,000 a year in outsourcing and postage costs, plus the equivalent of a half-time employee. With Sage HRMS Attendance, we were able to offer program managers and supervisors tools to monitor the proper usage of sick, personal and vacation time — and realized a savings of $40,000 a year with the correct application of benefit time. Sage HRMS has tied all of our data together into one seamless system, it's amazing how much more efficient we are now."

About The Company

Washington County Psychotherapy focuses on four major programs crisis services, outpatient counseling services, geriatric assessment and consultation services as well as crisis residential and residential services. The WCPA serves four counties in Maine, Washington, Hancock, Penobscot and Piscataquis. The company's mission is to improve the quality of life of the individual it serves by providing these individuals with the highest quality of mental health, substance abuse and related services.


WCPA was being challenged by their daily daunting HR tasks. All time and energy of their administrative staff was being spent searching through files for benefit and HR information. Manual and outsourced payroll required five days of effort every two weeks and staff that worked late night had no access to HR support. Dresser & Associates proposed a solution through Sage HRMS. With Sage HRMS WCPA was able to start managing all aspects of human resources, including recruitment, hiring, attendance, training, payroll and direct deposit. Their employee self service software (ESS) was able to create communication easily and efficiently between the HR department and those who worked late hours, giving them secure 24/7 access to HR and payroll information.


Sage HRMS has saved Washington County Psychotherapy $8,000 a year just in outsourcing and postage costs alone. WCPA has noticed a $40,000 a year savings with the correct application of benefit time. WCPA is now able to serve 50% more employees, more efficiently, and with the same number of staff.
