Minneapolis, February 8, 2010 — Ceridian Corporation, a leading provider of managed human resource, employee benefits administration, tax filing and payroll outsourcing solutions announced today that Lonestar Truck Group has acquired multiple Ceridian solutions. According to the multi-state truck dealership company, Lonestar’s use of Ceridian’s product suite should help streamline its payroll and HR processes and result in significant savings of both time and money.
Since its inception in 2001 Lonestar Truck Group had been using another payroll vendor’s application. Unfortunately the amount of ad hoc workarounds and related efforts required to process Lonestar’s payroll was complicated and overly burdensome. Lonestar decided to review other options, and requested more information from Ceridian and two other payroll vendors.
“From the very beginning we were impressed with Ceridian’s resources and their approach,” commented Dan Chase, Lonestar’s CFO. “The first thing Ceridian did was work to understand our business. Then they walked us through an ROI process that demonstrated how the use of their products and services could help realize both hard and soft savings. Once they understood our processes and applications they were able to demonstrate how their solutions met our needs.”
Ceridian’s team used several face-to-face meetings to acquire a working knowledge of Lonestar’s payroll and HR processes. Once Ceridian understood the details of Lonestar’s business, the team worked with the truck dealership company to walk them through a proprietary return on investment (ROI) process. The ROI effort identified several areas in which Lonestar’s processes and applications would benefit from Ceridian’s solutions. Ceridian’s sales executive and solution consultants brought in a team that consisted of Account Executives, implementation professionals and other knowledgeable experts to demonstrate how Lonestar could migrate their existing processes to Ceridian’s solutions to realize the value identified in the ROI process.
“Ceridian’s primary purpose in the marketplace is to help existing and potential clients create value,” commented John F. Hunter, executive vice president and general manager of Ceridian’s payroll business. “Some of the tools we have already built and others we are creating are designed to work with customers to help them identify ways in which they can work smarter and become more efficient, effective and profitable.” Ceridian’s knowledge of industry best practices and its own demonstrated expertise help inform those tools and can often be used to dramatic effect.
Ceridian will partner with Lonestar to help them implement Ceridian’s payroll, Self-Service, recruiting, COBRA and employee screening solutions.
