Stay compliant & transparent
As a municipal government, staying compliant with Canadian legislation is crucial. The M.D. of Bonnyville needed a system that could ensure they could report quickly and accurately.
Eliminate manual payroll tasks & errors

Now they’ve eliminated 3 hours a week per pay giving their payroll staff back time to conquer other tasks.
Using the Avanti Self-Service Portal, M.D. Bonnyville employees can access the documents they need without the help of their busy payroll department. This reduced the payroll team’s time spent on one-off requests and back and forth emails by 25%.
