Flexibility Leads to Best Practice Solution
Transitioning dozens of offices and manufacturing facilities, each with an independent means of processing and storing records, to a new personnel management system can be a daunting challenge. To ensure success, the Blount team felt it was important to not only choose the right software solution, but also a vendor with broad experience in the human resources arena and a thorough knowledge of industry best practices.
“We interact with a lot of vendors, but rarely do we see the level of interaction we experienced with the XFT team,” said Mardi Slick, Compensation and Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) manager for Blount International. “From day one, they understood our business – where we were, where we needed to go and how to help us get there, quickly and efficiently. To our benefit, the team demonstrated a remarkably deep understanding of industry best practices and a willingness to share that knowledge to help us improve our system. So while the personnel file software solution more than met our expectations, the XFT team really hit the ball out of the park.”
With XFT Personnel File, the HR team now has direct control over the design of its records system and daily work processes, enabling them to quickly make changes in response to internal requests, new regulations or changing market conditions. This level of control and flexibility has also enabled the team to quickly adapt to the specific needs of the company’s remote offices and manufacturing facilities, without compromising the integrity of processes or data.
