WorkForce Software's EmpCenter Exceeds Carhartt's ROI Expectations

Carhartt Anticipates a 340-Percent ROI Within Three Years

LIVONIA, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- WorkForce Software, Inc., a leader in workforce management solutions, today announced the return on investment (ROI) results for Carhartt, the premier manufacturer of work wear. WorkForce Software's web-based EmpCenter™ software solution has automated workforce processes, enforced business rules, reduced overhead costs, and significantly increased productivity for Carhartt.

Timekeeping and labor distribution processes were manual at Carhartt, which involved significant amounts of time for plant associates and the payroll department. Carhartt's complex business rules include union contract requirements, incentive pay, and project management. Some of the key findings show reduced time and costs, and improved accuracy.

The exhausting and manual process of collecting time and project data required the efforts of several payroll clerks each pay period, but now resources can be reallocated as the process only requires one payroll clerk. EmpCenter gives associates the opportunity to spend more time working on projects, increasing production as well as incentives. Carhartt also reduced several expenditures such as timecard stock and printing, and other third-party costs.

Automating data collection eliminates manual errors, significantly reducing Carhartt's auditing time. Associates simply swipe their badges when reporting or leaving work and when changing projects, ensuring accuracy in tracking projects and associate time.

"After a thorough review of software vendors, we felt WorkForce Software would provide us with the software and services that would give us the highest payback and we are not disappointed," said Katrina Agusti, senior analyst and project manager, Carhartt. "The feasibility report we put together showed that we would get a 180-percent ROI, but we have far exceeded that over the past three quarters, showing we will get a return at 340-percent over three years. EmpCenter has more than paid for itself."
