Having a number of disparate, disconnected HR applications motivated Iron Mountain India to launch an initiative to transform their workforce management strategies across its operations in India.
Iron Mountain’s goal was to have a centralised solution that could simplify the entire spectrum of people, process, and technology from a workforce management perspective. In addition, Iron Mountain wanted to be sure the solution enabled:
- Unified solution for all employees – including remote, offsite and regular employees
- Seamless integration with existing business critical HR systems
- Access to real-time information
- Enhanced, accurate reporting
One of the key objectives of implementing UKG Dimensions was to integrate workforce management with the other existing HR applications to get a single source of information on time and attendance, leave and accruals. Having multiple disconnected systems was not only hampering data visibility but was also impacting the overall user experience.
Integrating UKG Dimensions with the HR application stack has helped them now move forward with one consolidated system which has the same look and feel across the entire business.
Not just that, with UKG Dimensions, employees working remotely could virtually punch in/out their attendance – without any hassles.
With all the rules and policies configured in the application, payroll processing, identification of exceptions, calculation of overtime, etc. became easier and more efficient. UKG also provided the payroll output data file that included employee pay-related information such as days worked, days on leave, type of leave, overtime hours worked, etc. to their payroll application. Seamless movement of data across systems has not only helped improving HR/Payroll productivity but has also helped in reducing the overall payroll errors.
With the entire workforce management data now available on a centralised platform, automating the tracking and management of attendance and leave data has just been a breeze. The powerful visualisations and real-time analytics available in the solution has not only made the managers more confident that the attendance and leave data they have are timely, accurate, and relevant, but has also enabled them to make better decisions.
“UKG Dimensions will provide us with the right balance of ease of use and rich insights needed to really transform our workforce management. It was important that the solution we chose can integrate with our internal systems and meets our IT standards. With our company policies and rules configured into UKG Dimensions, we expect that payroll processing and managing policies should now become easier and more efficient.”
