[Case Study] How BRC Saved Hours Managing PTO with PurelyHR

About the Company

Biodynamic Research Corporation (BRC) is a professional services firm located in San Antonio, Texas. This highly intelligent team specializes in biomechanical analysis and accident reconstruction. They currently serve clients across the United States and around the world.

Founded in 1986, the firm initially focused on analyzing automotive collisions, determining the application of the collision force to the vehicle occupants, and determining injury consequences. 

Over the years, they have expanded their services to respond to the growing demand in traumatic incident analysis including, but not limited to, both high and low-velocity passenger vehicle collisions, slip and fall events, and injury events involving aircraft, bicycles, motorcycles, ATVs, boats, elevators, forklifts, tractor-trailers, trains, amusement park rides, power tools and light industrial equipment.

The High Cost of Manual Data Entry 

We spoke with the HR team at BRC in order to understand more about the issues they were experiencing with human resource management.

Like many businesses, they were concerned with the efficiency of their attendance tracking process. Without an online system to track employee absences, the firm was left with a cumbersome spreadsheet to manage attendance and process payroll. This was costing them valuable time as all employee data entry was being done manually. 

Besides the time it took, it also couldn’t be handed off easily. This complex task could not be learned overnight and the risk of errors increased when the manager or payroll administrator was absent. 

BRC needed a new solution.

Finding the Right Solution

Armed with a list of criteria, BRC started their search for a time-off management tool. It had to be hosted online, easy to implement and maintain, provide functionality through email and, of course, fit within their budget.

In April 2017, the BRC HR team started a trial with PurelyHR and were excited to see how Time-Off™ could bring much-needed structure to the company’s leave management while meeting all of their criteria. 

Besides streamlining their process, Time-Off™ would provide necessary transparency. Staff would now have access to their time-off balances and could request time off in just a few clicks. Managers would be able to see who was out of the office in just a glance.

They decided PurelyHR was a good fit and started implementation. With a bit of guidance from the Customer Success team, BRC was up-and-running. 

The result: BRC went from spending an average of 7-8 hours a week on leave management to spending minutes now that their process is automated.
