Professional Advantage, a staffing software solution provider, announced today that Contemporary Personnel Staffing Inc. (CPS) and Professionals Inc. selected Professional Advantage's 1Staff Back Office (formerly PAM) and Microsoft Dynamics GP as their staffing software.


CPS first became interested in 1Staff Back Office when they attended a Professional Advantage webinar and learned 1Staff could integrate with their current software applications, specifically their front office solution from Bullhorn. Originally they thought about keeping their current back office software and building an integration with Bullhorn.  However, since their back office was very antiquated, CPS felt it would have been too difficult to integrate. Once they saw what 1Staff could do with Microsoft Dynamics GP, and how seamless the integration was with Bullhorn, they were sold.


Many of the manual processes CPS currently does will be automatic with 1Staff Back Office and GP, saving them valuable time and money. For example, 25 companies require their invoices emailed electronically. To complete this process CPS would have to print all invoices, check their list for these 25 companies, go through all of the invoices to pull out the 25, scan them, and finally send an email with the scanned invoice to the client. "As you can imagine, this is a long process and we continue to get more clients requesting electronic invoicing, stated Jenn Silverio, Payroll Administrator and Technical Coordinator for CPS.

With 1Staff, CPS will also have access to Online Time Entry so they will no longer need to enter over 500 time cards manually each month.  This process is very time consuming because each entry must be checked multiple time for accuracy.  "Implementing 1Staff will automate our billing process and save us at least 7-8 hours of manual work each week," said Jenn Silverio. CPS is also looking forward to the advanced reporting available with PAM Web House.

Contemporary Personnel Staffing Inc. and Professionals Inc. expect to save valuable time and money by implementing 1Staff as their Back Office staffing software solution. "Over time 1Staff will pay for itself," said Silverio, "In addition to increasing efficiency, implementing PAM will also decrease our software operating costs."

The implementation of 1Staff Back Office and Microsoft Dynamics GP is currently in progress and CPS is excited to go live very soon with their new staffing software. Silverio stated, "The consultant from Professional Advantage not only has extensive accounting experience, but knows the staffing industry which is very helpful, making the implementation go very smoothly. Their consultant really took the time to understand how our processes work."
