Professional Employment Group (PEG), an innovative, full-service staffing solution provider based in St. Louis, reported increased efficiency, and cost-savings since implementing paperless form management software.
Katie Baker, Operations Manager at PEG, is always looking out for ways to improve processes for her clients. When she realized that the many paper application forms slowed down the process of getting great candidates to her clients, she began researching a variety of electronic document products. After a careful review she chose TempWorks DocCenter and quickly found success.
DocCenter electronically captures form data and signatures electronically and stores them on secure servers. Out of the box, DocCenter handles W-4s, I-9s and other standard documents, but end-users can make the solution work with any document that requires data entry, signatures and storage.
The improved process takes the drudgery out off the application and interview process. Candidates like it because it saves them time. Recruiters like it because they can focus more on the candidate during the interview since. That means candidates find the right job faster, and customers of PEG get best-matching candidates sooner. Baker says that going green makes her company faster and more profitable: “Because DocCenter works seamlessly with our core products, it has noticeably improved our efficiency. It saves time for everyone from our internal employees to our job candidates to our customers.”
The security offered by paperless processing also figures into Baker’s analysis. Auditing credentials and verifying employment eligibility no longer require laborious movement of paper documents. “It’s been a convenience to have all of our documentation stored safely and securely in one central location. We can now access hundreds of thousands of candidate forms for our clients at the click of mouse.”
“Some staffing companies still have entire rooms dedicated to document storage, making it a hassle to retrieve any of the data, overall very inefficient. TempWorks DocCenter is another addition to the family of products dedicated to the “Green” Paperless Staffing Initiative” concludes TempWorks Director of Operations, Kevin Prow. “DocCenter has been a hugely successful product for us,” says TempWorks president David Dourgarian. Dourgarian is quick to add that it markets the solution to all larger employers, especially those with Peoplesoft, VCG, Paychex or ADP installations. “Whatever platform you are on including no platform at all, we can deliver improved profitability immediately by eliminating paper and reducing headcount.”
