Access to the numbers has been a game-changer for Christy and Bart. With Paylocity's new Modern Workforce Index, a patent-pending AI dashboard, VStyles has a birds-eye view of key metrics. Being able to index where the salons are against the industry and make decisions on the data is driving the strategic vision for the franchise.
“Our current utilization score is 84%, which is great but also shows some room for improvement,” states Christy. “I love the transparency into industry benchmarks and where our competitors are currently ranking. It’s a thrill to see that we’re above the competition! But the best part as an owner, is to know that your investments are paying off. With MWI, we’re able to see how the time savings translate, and we’re on track to save $24,000 this year!”
Leveraging Paylocity reporting features saves 16 hours each month for Christy since she doesn't have to manually pull the reports together. “I remember actually the first time I used a graph in a presentation that I pulled from the Paylocity dashboards. I was able to demonstrate the growth and retention we’ve been able to achieve in a beautiful chart. It made it much more professional and impressive with very little manual work or formatting.”
During the COVID-19 crisis, as legislation changed, Christy turned to Paylocity’s support team and resources. “We had new codes to learn and understand. But Paylocity was able to help. They put out resources such as webinars and adapted the product to accommodate the changes. One of the biggest selling points for me is that their support team is very helpful. With our previous provider, we were routed to a call center somewhere on the other side of the world, and they could never really solve your problems. With Paylocity, the service is excellent. I've never had a situation that they couldn't figure it out.”
