Based in Shreveport, Louisiana, we began in 1996 by offering payroll processing and tax compliance services. In 2000, we made the strategic decision to develop our own technology. From that decision, the APS cloud solution was born and designed to help small to midsize businesses harness the power of the cloud to improve workforce management and mitigate compliance risk. Our workforce management solution is a highly flexible and powerful system for core HR, payroll, and time & attendance. In addition, we offer an expanded technology platform that includes self-service for employees and managers, mobile access, carrier connections, and data integration capabilities.
We’re proud of the software we’ve developed and how we help our clients achieve their goals by decreasing their labor costs, streamlining inefficient processes, and improving engagement with their employees.
