19 Apr Valley Hospital implements API's solution for 3,500 employees
Hartford, Wis. – API Software, Inc. announced today that The Valley Hospital, a community hospital serving more than 300,000 people located in Ridgewood, N.J., has successfully implemented API’s Payrollmation time and attendance and ActiveStaffer staff scheduling applications.
Payrollmation automates time and attendance data collection and streamlines time card management. The company says that this will improve employee morale and help the organization to control labor costs. ActiveStaffer is an application that automates the time intensive employee scheduling process and helps to maximize resources, control labor costs and retain qualified staff.
“The facts are that API is dedicated to healthcare,” said Tina Caramagna, operations manager, human resources for The Valley Hospital. “Additionally, API’s seamless integration provides real-time employee information, and that was the final benefit that sold us on making the switch to their system.”
Labor expenses can account for as much as 60 percent of a healthcare organization’s budget, managing employee data is a critical component to success in a very competitive marketplace.
API Software based in Hartford, Wisconsin says these new real-time applications have replaced existing automation solutions and The Valley Hospital is already beginning to see improvements. This is a major tool in the organization’s goal of managing overtime for 2004. The fact that 100 percent of the organization’s pay policies are automated makes it easier to catch potential payroll issues before they happen, ensuring that errors are not realized after paychecks have been issued.
“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with The Valley Hospital,” said Luis Garcia, API president and CEO. “Having API’s integrated solutions throughout the organization will really streamline the processing of employee-related information and positively impact the bottom line for The Valley Hospital.”
