With thousands of employees dispersed across many locations, Berkeley College had been using a payroll service bureau and another separate platform for HR, but the higher education company found that interfacing the two different systems was costly, inefficient, and cumbersome. HR executives sought a single, scalable solution—supported by strong customer service—that could deliver the full scope of HCM functionality and help them manage people and administrative operations in a more streamlined and strategic way.
