There are a selection of case studies on our Fusion5 website. You can also view specific EmpowerHR success stories below:  

Australian Turf Club races away with EmpowerHR.

EmpowerHR manages position establishment and vacancy management for the Department for Child Protection & Family Support in Western Australia (CPFS)

Fire and Emergency Services Authority of Western Australia (FESA) are firing ahead with EmpowerHR's workplace Health & Safety solution.

Scott Park Group brings the hammer down with EmpowerHR.

EmpowerHR outsourced payroll delivers cost savings for the Service to Youth Council (SYC).  

Since migrating the entire business into EmpowerHR software, ATC has benefited significantly from the security aspect.
— Australian Turf Club
This ease of access and visibility has led to a major surge of interest in Health, Safety and Welfare reporting.
— David Goyder | Workforce Planning Consultant and Project Manager, FESA
The system was up and running within three months of approval for the project.
— Sandeep Bordia | CFO, Metro Media Publishing
We embarked on a new payroll system due to multiple systems being used to produce payroll across the organisation. After much research, we finalised on the Empower system being supplied by Fusion5. Their approach was very sound, methodical and systematic. The system was up and running within three months of approval for the project. The benefits we have seen are on-time payroll, great customer service and organised payroll duties.
— Sandeep Bordia | CFO, Metro Media Publishing
One of the biggest benefits is the massive increase of visibility as every staff member can now see the status of their incident report and the resulting preventative actions anywhere and anytime. This ease of access and visibility has led to a major surge of interest in Health, Safety and Welfare reporting.
— David Goyder | Workforce Planning Consultant and Project Manager , FESA
One of the other major outcomes has been that the Health Safety and Welfare team have moved from an administrative function in spending most of their time chasing up on claims, forms, repair work etc; they are now actively becoming a business partner in working closer with the field staff, including educating staff, investigating problems (known and unknown) and putting in place improvement techniques and processes.
— David Goyder | Workforce Planning Consultant and Project Manager, FESA
With EmpowerHR, ATC is enjoying many benefits. ATC is now able to receive detailed post-race meeting and events reporting, it has the ability to record training and skills, and staff are able to receive information and payslips online. EmpowerHR has changed the IT culture of the ATC. In terms of access to information and processing, Employee Self Service alone has enabled access of information by over 1500 casual and 200 full-time staff at any time.
— Australian Turf Club
In addition to the cost saving benefits of an outsourced system and the inbuilt processes that EmpowerHR offered, the software ticked the boxes in providing capacity for growth and an all in one Payroll / HR system. To ensure cost containment for future requirements, Fusion5 recognised the importance of SYC in the community and ensured the software was affordable.
— Service to Youth Council (SYC)
Managers now have hands-on access in real-time to all their employee details and can make timely decisions without the need to request this information from a third party.
— Service to Youth Council (SYC)
EmpowerHR has provided good time savings, removed bulk printing and distribution of payslips and payment summaries and automated many functions that were once very manual.
— Service to Youth Council (SYC)
In order to build a solution to cater for these requirements, the Department worked closely with Fusion5 to develop the software and required business processes. This resulted in a simple On-line Establishment and Vacancy Management System, using EmpowerHR as the single source of truth for the data. The interactive functionality enabled business units to provide regular updates on status, which in turn provided aggregate reports at a corporate level, and the system itself ensured that processes were standardised across the board.
— The Department for Child Protection and Family Support (CPFD) in Western Australia
Prior to the EmpowerHR implementation, Scott Park Group had not had an Employee Self Service option available for their payroll. The business has now implemented Employee Self Service and as a result have largely automated their leave processes through Self Service. This approach has provided benefits for employees, managers and payroll by automating the old paper-based leave process.
— Natalia Smith | Group HR Manager, Scott Park Group
Many of Scott Park Group staff are quite mobile, working between different sites. The ability to have Self Service available on mobile devices has helped with the rollout and uptake of this functionality.
