Company Overview:

Canyon State Electric Co., Inc. is a leading provider of commercial electric contracting services throughout the Phoenix Metro area, Arizona, and California. Based in Phoenix, Ariz., the 44-year-old company has more than 200 full-time employees working throughout the state on multiple projects. Canyon State Electric specializes in energy-saving programs, design-build custom electrical projects, commercial and industrial electric services, tenant improvement, and many other aspects of electrical construction.

With multiple job sites and a small HR team, Canyon State needed to find a solution that enabled the company to hire, manage, and grow the workforce efficiently.  But with outdated processes, they struggled with hiring and retention as well as managing benefits and other critical processes.

ATS Helps Attract the Right Candidates

Before Arcoro, hiring and onboarding were challenging. Paper applications were sometimes misplaced or hard to read, taking valuable time from other critical HR processes. Once implemented and connected to the company’s website and Indeed, Arcoro’s ATS helped automate job postings and candidate communication while the cloud-based portal allowed managers to see the information at a glance. Now their recruiter spends less time on recruiting while also sourcing better candidates and getting that information to managers in a timely manner.

Onboarding Software Gets Workers on the Job Fast

Prior to Arcoro, the HR team struggled to onboard new hires. Getting information to and from new hires and inputting it into their system took a lot of time and energy. With Arcoro’s solution, information gathered in the Applicant Tracking System flowed directly into the Onboarding module, simplifying the process of completing required documents and better ensuring their accuracy. In addition, the candidates themselves enter and upload all information, so there are fewer data errors.

ExakTime Reins in Payroll Costs

Before Canyon State implemented Arcoro’s ExakTime Time and Attendance solution, tracking time was a laborious process that could take up to two days to complete. However, once ExakTime was implemented and paired with the accounting system, the process turned into a 30-minute task at most. “ExakTime has helped us greatly in how we do our payroll,” Chris Reyes, Director of Special Systems remarked. “We went from a tedious manual process to something that is easy to review in only a couple of mouse clicks.”

“With Arcoro, we could be remote and avoid being chained to the office.”

A Robust LMS Helps Boost Retention

Automation has the potential to help several aspects of a business, including boosting employee productivity and engagement. Previously on the backburner due to lack of time, Arcoro’s cloud-based Learning Management System allowed Canyon State to conduct, track, and report on any of the training that new employees need to be successful.

Arcoro’s HR solutions simplified several key processes and gave back time to focus on things that mattered – especially during a global pandemic. “I know that the number one highlight of 2021 for the HR Director was the Arcoro platform,” Reyes said. “The ATS and Onboarding Modules helped her team do their job that had become very stressful job due to the pandemic. There were many things she had to work on, and I know that having a streamlined process definitely helped to know that those things were handled and that she could take on the many things that came at her during the pandemic.”
