Australian Heritage, Global Experience, and Strong Partnerships Bring Greater Value to Clients

Sydney, Australia (4 February 2015) – WorkForce Software today announced expanded investments in Australia and New Zealand with the launch of WFS: A WorkForce Software Company (“WFS Australia”). Blending global expertise with an Australian heritage, WFS Australia delivers award-winning workforce management solutions for companies of all sizes.

In May 2013, WorkForce Software acquired the Australian online rostering solutions company, RosterLive. Addressing the unique requirements of small to medium-sized businesses, the RosterLive brand is now incorporated into WFS Australia and its product suite rebranded as EmpLive. WFS Australia will also actively market, deliver, and support the enterprise solution, EmpCenter—bringing one of the world’s leading workforce management suites closer to organisations throughout Australia, New Zealand and the greater APAC region.

Through these two cloud-based suites, WorkForce Software provides employers with the tools they need to automate and improve critical processes including time and attendance, staff rostering, absence and leave, and fatigue management.

Leslie Tarnacki, VP and GM of WFS Australia said: “Australia has a growing, highly competitive workforce management market. Through RosterLive we have built a significant presence and great client relationships in Australia in the SME market. We currently provide workforce management solutions to more than 250 customers locally, such as Melbourne Racing Club, Baker’s Delight, Anglican Care, Armourguard and Priceline Pharmacies. WFS Australia will grow that footprint plus expand into the enterprise sector with EmpCenter, creating a unified brand that can further accelerate our growth.”

Both solutions are designed to integrate with a diverse array of payroll, HCM, and ERP systems. EmpCenter, for example, features pre-built integrations with SAP SuccessFactors, Oracle Fusion and CloudPay, while EmpLive features local reseller partnerships with ADP, NGA HR and TechnologyOne – covering Australia’s biggest payroll vendors. EmpLive with its established Australian heritage also integrates seamlessly with over 30 additional major payroll providers.

Leslie Tarnacki said,

“For Australian companies to compete successfully on an international playing field they need to focus on unlocking the skills and knowledge that their employees can bring to the organisation. WFS Australia can deliver the right workforce management solutions to help improve overall productivity and, ultimately, a company’s bottom line.”
