Challenges

BerganKDV spans 7 locations across Minnesota and Iowa. Its 300 employees provide traditional CPA services, human capital management (HCM), wealth management, and IT support. Previously, BerganKDV struggled to sell, implement, and support three disjointed databases that handled its customers’ HCM needs. The inability to report across separate systems provided limited visibility into workforce metrics. This left BerganKDV relying on requests to customers and vendors to get basic information, hindering proactive planning and inconveniencing clients.

What BerganKDV needed was a partner and a solution that could:

  • Provide a single database HCM solution that integrates with its CPA functions, including robust report generation such as headcount, turnover, contributions and census reporting
  • Deliver ongoing, top-tier product development resources to keep the software ahead of the ever-changing HR / payroll legislative compliance
  • Supply a more expansive range of HCM modules on a single database that customers can access from any web enabled device
  • Offer a fully stocked collection of customizable marketing resources and competitive intelligence information to support its sales and marketing efforts
  • Support an active and collaborative partner community for shared ideas and best practices
“Our clients and employees experience a ton of time savings and love the Kronos Workforce Ready® platform. Our team can easily access all the HCM data they need internally allowing us to serve our customers better and faster on both the HCM and CPA sides of our business.”
