Founded in 1986, BRC 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 involved, it also wasn’t a task that could be easily handed off between colleagues. 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.

How PurelyHR met BRC’s Needs

Armed with a list of criteria, BRC started their search for a time-off management tool. It had to be cloud software, 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 PTO tracking 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.

PurelyHR can be implemented in hours (not weeks or months) and no need to get your IT team involved. With our free account setup call, our Customer Success team will walk you through each step and ensure your account is set up to match your business needs.

Implementation was a key opportunity for the BRC team to witness our commitment to prompt and friendly support. We want every one of our customers to feel confident about their decision to use PurelyHR, so we offer unlimited technical support, 12 hours a day, 5 days a week.
