Global commercial transportation company

The Challenge

When two large, global commercial transportation companies merged, they needed to integrate two disparate payroll systems as part of the post-merger integration. The need for precision and a seamless transition was critical to the success of the merger, as well as to avoid costly fines and time delays. It was a complicated process, with over 90,000 employees involved, and the companies didn’t have the resources or capability to effectively manage the project in-house.

The Solution

Advanced Resources’ team was called into action to assess the scope challenge and develop a solution. We brought in 12 experts to manage the conversion and integration of the payroll system. The project lasted one year and included training to ensure a seamless transition back to the internal team, allowing their resources to focus on current daily activities demanded by the business.

The Benefit

  • The company was able to achieve it's goal by going live with no issues, on time, and 25% under budget
  • We helped our client save over 7,000 hours of project time
  • The company was able to have their employees focus on day-to-day operations and the completion of a successful merger
