HR Department at National Heritage Academies Cuts Audit Time by More than Half

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., (February 12, 2013)ImageSoft, Inc., has released a new case study outlining how the National Heritage Academies, one of the nation’s fastest growing public charter school management companies, saw swift and significant benefit – including reducing its audit time by 54 percent – following the implementation of a document management solution provided by ImageSoft.

Like most Human Resources departments, the “People Services” department at the National Heritage Academies (NHA) was inundated with content pertaining to employees and job applicants, but lacked a central location for managing and storing the information. Instead, files were saved in multiple formats and places throughout the department. That made locating a document no easy task and presented an even greater challenge when preparing for compliance audits.

Document security posed another problem. With no central repository for storing and securing files, there was no way to manage or track who had access to personnel records.

But with the addition of a document management solution from ImageSoft, NHA quickly resolved these and other issues and realized substantial benefits, including:

  • Quick and easy access to all HR records, even from remote locations
  • Greatly reduced the time and labor needed to prepare for audits
  • educed compliance audit time by 54 percent
  • Cut labor costs by not having to hire additional staff, despite major expansion
