Challenges for Cerberus Security Group
Prior to adopting Celayix software, Cerberus Security Group encountered several challenges in their workforce management:
Ineffective Legacy Software:
Cerberus was using a legacy software solution that failed to provide an efficient solution for their scheduling needs. The company still had to rely on manual processes, such as Excel spreadsheets, to complete certain tasks. This redundant and time-consuming method not only led to spending excessive time on scheduling employees but also hindered the seamless management of their workforce, leaving ample room for scheduling errors.
Payroll and Billing Transition:
The company was compelled to transition from a custom-built payroll process to a new platform to streamline its operations. However, the new platform they adopted did not adequately cater to their complex payroll and billing requirements. This transition led to frustration and complications as it posed a significant challenge for Cerberus in managing the financial aspects of its workforce.
