What our clients say

Read our case studies
We can now use Avanti’s web timesheets to do final pay, so we don’t have to email managers to ask them where their paper time sheets are anymore. It makes everything much faster than before.
Carolyn Lesyshen
Payroll Supervisor, Servus Credit Union
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.
Sherri Kisser
Manager, Finance & Accounting Systems, Glacier Media Group
We've been able to automate a ton of stuff that we had to key into the systems before...When we were using the old systems on a payroll processing week, it took us four days. Now, it takes us only two.
Candace McGee
Manager, Payroll & Benefits, Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts
Our employees now have access to their pay stubs, T4s, benefit information, and entitlement information online, where they did not have that access before. We have gotten some really positive feedback about being able to access that information so easily.

Corporate Projects Supervisor, City of Brandon
