Our implementation team listened to all our concerns. I was so amazed at how quickly they could analyze our data. They were able to make suggestions on things that we didn’t even see, and I’m in this data every day.

  • Due to organizational growth, Opaa! needed a more flexible way to manage payroll and HCM.
  • Disconnected systems required redundant manual data entry that was time consuming and led to inaccurate data.
  • The high volume of calls to HR were time-consuming and prevented the HR team from being more strategic.

How ADP helped

  • ADP Next Gen HCM brought Opaa! a single, integrated environment to holistically manage their workforce – eliminating the need for duplicate data entry.
  • Now Opaa! can rely on accurate data – for real-time reporting that leads to more confident decision-making.
  • A streamlined employee experience has increased self-service and significantly reduced calls to HR.
  • The flexibility of ADP Next Gen HCM enables Opaa! to add functionality as its company grows.
