Ames True Temper had been using a payroll service bureau that proved to be expensive, cumbersome, and lacked the end-to-end functionality the manufacturing company wanted in order to elevate its HR operations into strategic levels. Ames True Temper’s eight-person HR department had been very transactional, and its systems were used only by HR and payroll. The only information being captured electronically was basic personnel information, pay, and deductions.
