Accero Introduces Out-of-the-Box Workforce Intelligence Solution to Ramp Up Human Resource Decision-Making

Accero Workforce Intelligence™ comes preloaded with everything busy HR executives need to pinpoint trends and make strategic decisions – sooner.

Portland, OR – April 7, 2010 – Accero, a leading HR and Payroll solutions provider with blue chip clients in the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom, today announced the availability of Accero Workforce Intelligence™, a reporting and analytics solution that delivers actionable HR information quickly and intuitively, enabling HR managers to help drive strategic, informed decisions for their organization.

Unlike business intelligence (BI) tools that provide the upfront technology and then rely on IT departments to build the data mart, metrics and dashboards, Accero Workforce Intelligence is a usable product out-of-the box with immediate ROI. It includes more than 200 pre-defined metrics, scorecards, charts and graphs, as well as traditional reporting capability – all fully integrated with the Accero Cyborg solution.

According to a recent survey* of HR executives, more than 87 percent of respondents felt they could better drive business decisions with improved access to HR data. Yet, 76 percent of respondents felt they had to wait or it was difficult to get data into the format they needed with their current system. More than two-thirds of respondents could not get the data without technical assistance from their IT department. While these results speak to the importance of analyzing data in order to discover crucial trends and provide strategic insight, it also shows many of today’s reporting and BI tools require too much time and investment to convert the data into easy-to-use information.

“Accero Workforce Intelligence is the solution HR professionals need to elevate themselves from a reactive and tactical role to a more predictive, strategic role. With Workforce Intelligence, HR will provide their organizations with measurably increased value as they become the central focus for strategic workforce and overall business planning,” said Tom Malone, CEO of Accero.

Using Accero Workforce Intelligence, executives and managers can tap into the wealth of data that already exists in their payroll and HR system and use that information to reduce labor costs, minimize the risk associated with labor and employment issues, help ensure compliance across all departments, and increase employee productivity through proactive planning.

Accero Workforce Intelligence is fully integrated with the Accero Cyborg solution suite. Access is role-based and secure to protect sensitive information and ensures each user only views authorized data. Users work from a single, centralized database, ensuring accurate and timely analysis.
