Operating as TLC Employer Services in 2015, Journey Announces Upcoming Improvements
Journey would like to take this opportunity to thank you for entrusting Journey Payroll & HR with your payroll needs. The award-winning growth to become the largest payroll company in their region is because of the relationships with great individuals and businesses.
Below, you will find important information related to upgrades and improvements now and in the future.
Core System Upgrade
Great efforts this past year went into ensuring clients receive the best technology available. Due to recent software upgrades, Journey became a leader within the industry. In addition, this opens the door for various additional new features. Currently, with more than half of clients on the new platform, Journey aims to have remaining clients transitioned by early 2016.
Warned by many fellow business owners that software conversions are extremely scary, they hung onto their seats. However, they could not be happier with how the conversion went. Likewise, Journey recognizes the speed bumps and are putting 100% of their effort into correcting them.
Of course, the patience of understanding clients is crucial during the navigation of those speed bumps. Here are highlights of big things and improvements to come your way in 2016…
Speed and Downtime of Online System
If you have encountered any slow or downtime with the online system, understand it’s Journey’s top priority. When upgrading to a new, top-of-the-line software system, there’s a greater need for better servers. The original servers were not as efficient as necessary, and the best option has to be found.
Between Journey, IT experts, and software programming resources, the best servers for your needs will triumph. Downtime of any length can be frustrating. While it is impossible to promise you perfection from servers, they will certainly strive to have 99.99% up time. So, this transition will happen immediately.
Journey continues to believe that customer service is everything. As a result, they announce the new hire of a Payroll Specialist. Hopefully, another exceptional Payroll Specialist will join the team immediately.
Attention to detail is so important when handling payroll. So, Journey wants to ensure they are fully equipped internally to handle the growing needs of clients.
