Livermore, CA, March 2, 2017 – Access, the largest privately held Records and Information Management (RIM) services provider in the United States, today announced a partnership with Equifax Workforce Solutions, a leader in human resource compliance, analytics and verification services, and a business unit of Equifax Inc.
Access will extend the functionality of its leading document management solution, FileBRIDGE for HR, by integrating with Equifax Workforce Solutions Compliance Center, a configurable technology portal that streamlines new hire onboarding. Through process and regulatory update automation, Compliance Center helps employers manage the onboarding process by providing state and federal required notifications for new employees and insight management reporting.
“With rapidly changing labor and employment legislation, increased enforcement with growing fines, and increased risk of class action law suits, it is critical for organizations to properly manage all employee records,” said Jim Farrell, Senior Vice President of Products at Access. “With this partnership, FileBRIDGE for HR becomes an invaluable tool as it helps employers remain compliant with appropriate regulations, from the hiring process through the long term life of the document.”
Using Compliance Center within FileBRIDGE for HR, employers gain a standardized, automatic process where required forms are completed and correctly retained to support an audit or legal inquiry. In addition, Compliance Center reduces risk through market leading I-9 Management and E-Verify® solutions, turnkey electronic W-4 and state and federal required notifications.
Angela Lockman, vice president, Product Management for Equifax Workforce Solutions, shared, “Onboarding employees is far more complicated than handing new hires a stack of paperwork to complete, which becomes error prone and consuming to manage. At the same time, keeping track of nuances at both the state and federal levels would be near impossible without the support of technologies like Compliance Center. Strategic partnerships, such as this one with FileBRIDGE for HR, work to keep organizations current, encourage greater efficiencies across the function and advance the way employers interact with new employees.”
