After conducting due diligence and speaking with three different solution providers, Baker and her staff turned to Caisson Group, a Sage Software business partner. The museum selected Abra Payroll as its new payroll solution. “The entire implementation process was so smooth,” says Baker. “Caisson Group knew their stuff. If there’s one aspect to this process that I vividly remember, it’s the time and effort that Caisson took to ensure we were fully educated on the Abra Payroll system,” compliments Borrer.
Clear Skies Ahead
MOSI has realized significant returns on its Abra Payroll investment. “Running a payroll cycle used to take nearly three days to complete,” begins Borrer. “Abra Payroll’s ability to integrate with our general ledger, and collect and allocate budgeting and financial data from our various departments, has reduced this process to just one and a half days.” The payroll department formerly spent more than eight hours entering and manually verifying timecard information using a basic Internet connection and standard reports.
Now the data can be entered, sorted, and verified in just three hours. “Abra Payroll is the complete solution,” explains Baker. “With the click of a button, my team can process payroll and generate the reports I need for our executive board. Now, I have the time to devote to other larger strategic issues, and [my team has] the reports and analysis to ensure MOSI remains profitable and successful.” “Abra Payroll really rescued us,” adds Borrer.
