MiPro Enterprises is the parent company for four entities: Staff Connections, a medical staffing firm; MIPRO Consulting, an IT consulting firm; Bleu Cheese Properties, a property management company; and WPM & Associates, a business brokerage company.
The company wanted to deploy a comprehensive, integrated, and cost-effective human-capital-management (HCM) solution to manage internal processes for its four distinct organizations, each with different complexities—comprised of 300 workers across the United States.
While still in the early stages of its Oracle HCM Cloud deployment, MiPro Enterprises hopes to improve its ability to formalize and clearly define human resources (HR) processes to ensure consistency and best practices across the growing company. Additionally, the company hopes to gain visibility into HR information and trends (turnover rates, for example); automate HR processes, such as performance management; and streamline reporting compliance (headcount reports, for example). By having business-intelligence data at management’s fingertips, MiPro Enterprises hopes to enhance decision-making capabilities that will continue to grow its business instead of spending unnecessary time on manual processes.
The Oracle solutions will also enable MiPro Enterprises to meet the complex compensation needs of each of its entities. For example, Staff Connections requires the ability to track compensation that reflects varying rates for individuals that perform different positions (for example: a nurse could work at multiple facilities, each with different scopes of work and rates).
Further, with Oracle HCM Cloud, MiPro Enterprises hopes to launch a more structured and dynamic performance-review process—replacing cumbersome paper-based procedures to improve traceability, efficiency, and visibility. With the new process, MiPro Enterprises plans to effectively link employee goals to company goals—to optimize employee engagement and continue MiPro Enterprises’ commitment to being an employer of choice.
Even after deployment is complete, MiPro Enterprises will continue to evaluate company needs for additional features and functionality that will improve business processes and enhance productivity.
“We were experiencing many challenges with our previous HCM system, which we had been using for six years. We began our search to replace Workday and evaluated ADP, Ceridian, and Paychex applications. In the end, Oracle HCM Cloud had the most depth and breadth for functionality, flexibility, and security of all the solutions we assessed. In addition, Oracle HCM Cloud is a user-friendly system which will enable enterprisewide user acceptance even though not all the entities are technically proficient,” said Bernadette Sprawka, managing partner and chief financial officer, MiPro Enterprises.
“We are working with our internal partner—MIPRO Consulting—as well as Oracle Consulting on the implementation. Oracle provides technical expertise, and we provide the functional experts,” Sprawka said.
