BLUE BELL, PA--(Marketwire - Feb 19, 2013) - PDS, a leading provider of human resource, benefits, recruiting, and payroll software, today announced that Liberty Tax Service has selected and implemented its Vista HRMS® solution to manage its ranging employee base of 1,000 to 3,000 people depending on the time of year. Vista HRMS has saved the tax service provider significant time on its HR, payroll, benefits, and recruiting processes and provided access to valuable information for the HR team, executives and managers, as well as its employees.

"We had a solution that did not offer a good reporting function and had no recruiting module," said Barbara Leach, director of Human Resources at Liberty Tax. "We triple our workforce for the tax season and with our previous applicant tracking process we had to enter our data in a standalone system and then re-enter it into our HRMS. This was extremely time and paper intensive and very prone to errors. Now, with Vista HRMS, we have a cost-effective solution that streamlines our onboarding process and enables us to quickly bring on a new employee."

Leach also explained how Vista HRMS provides her team with the tools to easily generate valuable reports for management and enables employees and managers to access certain information without having to contact HR with common questions. This self-service capability allows the Liberty Tax HR staff to focus their time and effort on more business-critical tasks.

"The significant fluctuation in the staff size at Liberty Tax makes onboarding employees, maintaining their records and ensuring accurate payroll processing and benefits administration a true challenge for the HR department," explained George Brady, vice president at PDS. "We are pleased to be able to provide Liberty Tax with a complete solution to help run their HR operations more efficiently and effectively."
