Beware Experts

You receive an email that offers you a free “White Paper” on the Top ways to ensure ERP success.  No company names, just some innocuous non-specific wording that helps imply that the article is “neutral” and thus qualified.   You fill in your company and contact information and then you are allowed to download or are emailed this “fact filled” expert’s information.   The trouble is it is not always facts but often opinions, and it’s not natural at all, but rather from a firm that wants you business.   Their hope is to establish credibility with you based on the free information provided.  Next they contact you to meet and show you their “perfect fit” product ...

Just a couple months ago, you could not watch any major news show without at least some of the show being dedicated to the repeal and replacement efforts of the Affordable Care Act. However, since the passage of the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) by the House of Representatives in early May, the topic of healthcare reform has been relegated to the back rooms of the Senate. The AHCA contained some welcome changes for employers, most notably removing the coverage penalties aka the penalties for not offering coverage to qualified employees (> 30 hours/week on average) and for not offering “affordable” coverage. “simplified” reporting for employers. ...

Construction companies, healthcare networks, consulting firms and many other industries optimize labor resources through employee sharing. Skilled employees may work on multiple projects at the same time or within multiple departments throughout the day. While sharing skilled employees across your business works wonders for productivity, it wreaks havoc in the payroll and accounting department. Splitting time over multiple cost centers can be a tedious, time-consuming process when performed manually. Add automation and improve accuracy with Employee Accounts and Splits . Sharing employees is a common scenario for businesses who need to maximize their resources ...

With Best Money Moves, we believe that you can be taught the skills you need to manage money, just like you were taught to drive. Best Money Moves is a different sort of financial wellness program designed to help employees manage the cash they have, pay down their debt and develop short and long term goals that will relieve some of ...
