OVER PAYROLL & HR SYSTEMS
FROM SIGN UP TO GOING LIVE
For over 20 years, Candace McGee has been processing payroll for different types of teams and organizations.
She has experience working in a wide range of industries, including environmental services, oil and gas, non-profits, and hospitality.
When Candace joined CRMR as a Payroll & Benefits Manager, she was able to immediately see that their system had a problem.
The company was using not one, but two different software solutions to track employee time and manage their payroll.
According to Candace, this process was not only cumbersome, it was also totally unnecessary.
For a company as large as this, with as many employees and facilities as there are, it just didn’t make sense. It was going to be a very cumbersome task, working between these two systems all the time.
In her travels as a Canadian Payroll professional, Candace has implemented and used Avanti at multiple companies.
Based on that experience, she recommended they try Avanti to streamline their payroll processing and employee time tracking needs.
With Avanti’s cloud-based technology, CRMR would be able to eliminate their dependence of two separate HR systems, and automate many of the payroll tasks that they were currently processing manually.
It was an easy to decision to make, so Candace and her new colleagues quickly began plans to implement the new software.
They set a goal for themselves to complete the project in just three months, which was ambitious considering they had to transfer data for nearly 1,000 employees before they could get the new system up and running.
But, working closely with the team from Avanti to make it happen, they managed to complete their implementation right on deadline.
Using Avanti has saved the team at Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts a lot of time. Rather than having to transfer information between two systems like they did previously, they now have all their employee data in one place.
And when it comes time for payroll, Candace says this means they are now able to complete it twice as fast.
Even better, Candace says they now have 100% administrative control over the software, and can configure it themselves to troubleshoot problems or add new elements.
The end result is a platform that simplifies just about everything for their team.
CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER
“Effectively, we now have one person managing the weekly payroll of over 700 employees. We would not have been able to do that without Avanti. We would’ve had to hire an additional eight to ten data entry people, so that’s saving us at least $250,000 in annual salaries.”

“I’ve used a lot of Canadian Payroll systems. By far, Avanti has the best features and the most flexibility.”

“With Avanti, we've saved approximately $25K in fees and $60K in payroll dollars, annually.”
MANAGER, FINANCE & ACCOUNTING SYSTEMS

“Because Avanti is so efficient at processing payroll, our payroll administrators don’t have to do a whole bunch of data entry anymore. They’re actually able to run the payroll and do some analysis… instead of just running to get it out the door.”
Convention Centre, Winnipeg
“It takes much less time now in Avanti than it did in the previous system. I’m not having to enter the data twice anymore or double-check the reports that are coming in from the managers. It cuts the time it takes to do our payroll by half.”
Pfaff Automotive Partners
“We were looking at massive growth, and we knew we needed something that would carry us there. With Avanti’s functionality, no matter how large we grow, the system can sustain it.”
“Avanti has proven to be a cost-effective, labour-reducing, and time-saving solution for everyone from the accounting team to individual property managers and employees.”
Manager, Payroll & Benefits
Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts
“I’ve used a lot of Canadian Payroll systems. By far, Avanti has the best features and the most flexibility. The fact that they upgrade the system based on recommendations from their clients…it’s incredible Other Payroll software companies just don’t do that.”
