Cities Digital Client Steinhafels Inc. Takes HR Paperless
Cities Digital client Steinhafels Inc. is a Midwestern furniture store chain with over 750 employees and more than 20 locations. With the company experiencing rapid growth, Steinhafels was faced with some technical challenges managing a growing workforce and staying efficient. This growth resulted in the companies HR department creating hundreds of non-standardized forms, an ad hoc method to gathering information and an absence of a standard streamlined process for onboarding new employees.
Laserfiche has helped Steinhafels become extremely efficient and consistent with their employment practices by automating redundant tasks and allowing information to be easily searchable and shareable. With Laserfiche Forms and Workflow, Steinhafel’s can now have their 60 plus HR forms accessed with the touch of a button by store managers, the HR department or any other employee, saving time and money.
They have been able to completely automate the hiring process from posting the job to external career websites through closing a job requisition. Implementing Laserfiche at Steinhafels Inc. has resulted in:
· The HR and accounts payable implementations alone have resulted in savings of $78,369.20 per year. Laserfiche paid for itself in direct money and time savings within the first two years of the implementation.
· All employee files are immediately available and detailed security settings allow Steinhafels to control who has access.
· The hundreds of disparate hiring and application forms across the organization have been consolidated into 59 structured and consistent forms.
WASWUG 2015 Conference in Bellevue, WA (March 8-10)
The WASWUG 2015 Conference proved to be a valuable resource for Cities Digital as representatives from over 100 different school districts throughout Washington came to learn more about technology solutions and services. With over 1,100 full conference attendees, 150 Presenters and 75 different Exhibit Representatives there was no shortage of interesting topics to discuss. Cities Digital spoke with many of these eager school representatives about how Laserfiche® products and integrations can improve their school districts productivity by going paperless.
The conference included breakout sessions on topics such as Microsoft Work Integrations, Excel Formulas and Functions, Long-Time User Data Cleanup and Setting up an Optimal Approval Process for Requisitions. Cities Digital had the opportunity to give a presentation on Digital & Electronic Signatures, breaking down the latest in digital signature technology using Laserfiche® document management, web forms, DocuSign and Topaz. Attendees were able to learn ways to improve efficiency and enhance workflow for contracts, employee requests and interoffice communication.
The Tenth Annual WASWUG Conference was made possible by the Western States Information Processing Cooperative. WSIPC is a unique public agency that provides quality information services at a reasonable cost to Washington State’s school districts. WSIPC was formed over 40 years ago when 10 Washington school districts formed a cooperative aiming to empower schools by sharing software development and hardware costs and providing centralized technology support.
