pay processes for 18 locations across 3 provinces
with rapid business growth (from 350 to 1,400 employees)
Pfaff has grown exponentially over the past three years. So, predicting the need for a more robust payroll management system, they rolled out Avanti when they had around 350 employees. Today, they have over 1,400 employees in locations all across Canada.
To accommodate their massive growth, Compensation and Benefits Manager Athina Tzakas began looking into solutions. She needed a platform that would be scalable, flexible, and consolidate every location’s personnel on one unified system.
Avanti proved to be more than capable of handling Pfaff’s growth. The platform effortlessly scaled with their growth and standardized the payroll system across all of their locations, removing the need to manually log in to each one and process them individually.
The platform also proved flexible. It helped Athina’s team to remain agile and meet deadlines no matter how much their company grew.
Pfaff’s team uses almost every feature of Avanti’s platform, including:
Today, all 18 of Pfaff’s locations have standardized processes in place, and Athina is confident that no matter how much they grow in the future, Avanti is robust enough to scale with them.
Tasks that used to take hours now take minutes. Company-wide workflows are now faster and more efficient. And Avanti makes payroll, which is often stressful and demanding, much more streamlined—which is a huge relief for Athina and her team.
Pfaff is now rolling out Avanti’s Time and Attendance feature which helps both Managers and Operations ensure that they’re paying for the time worked as opposed to time onsite.
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.”

“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.”

“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.”
