Marathon HR Eliminates Waste and Automates Storage of Payroll Information

Marathon HR Services, LLC is a human resources outsourcing firm providing administrative and consultative services in the areas of payroll, benefits, risk management, safety and human resource compliance for small to medium sized businesses.


The Problem
The traditional means of distributing a payroll check or stub is: print, fold, stuff, seal, send or distribute to employees. As the trend toward electronic payment (direct deposit) increases, employees, often dispose of the payment stub unopened.

The Solution
Marathon HR recognized the waste in the system and sought a solution that would eliminate work and cost for Marathon HR, save effort on the part of their clients, and give better access to payroll information to the client's employees. Rather than automating the current steps, Marathon HR chose to rethink the process.

Marathon turned to PaperHost to develop and automate their web presentment of payroll checks and reports for customers and employees from a secure web-based repository. This approach eliminated almost all the manual labor from Marathon's internal processing and alleviated the burden of storing, retrieving, and managing the payroll documents for their customers.

Customers and employees can now access any payroll related document from their home or office through a secure internet connection.

Marathon realized ROI the first month of their new solution because there was virtually no upfront investment for the service.

Marathon can now add new customers without expanding their staff which further increases ROI.
