How to reduce employee onboarding time by 90%

How to reduce employee onboarding time by 90%Did you know that the average company spends $4,000 for each new hire? And that number doesn’t take into account the amount of lost productivity during those first few months on the job. Some sources estimate that it can take up to eight full months for a new employee to become fully productive. But since employees who are successfully onboarded are 69% more likely to stay, reducing costly turnover, it’s a process that is necessary. The good news is, there are ways you can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to onboard new hires. Let’s take a look at one such case study below.

Recently, one of Ayehu’s long-term customers – a large international shipping organization, won an award in automation and infrastructure from a respected magazine in Israel named ‘People & Computers’. This recognition was given due in large part to the impressive reduction the company has been able to achieve on their employee onboarding process. How did they achieve this? Simple. By shifting the process from human to machine through intelligent automation.

The company’s director of IT, together with the company’s HR Project Manager, realized that each time they hired a new employee, more than a week of time was being wasted performing the necessary but tedious onboarding functions such as opening an account and granting appropriate permissions. There was also lack of synchronization between the company’s cloud HR system and on-prem IT infrastructure. Furthermore, every time an employee changed status, the same time would be required to process his or her permission changes as well.

The managers began searching for a solution to reduce the time being wasted in performing these processes and workflows, and ultimately chose Ayehu to automate it. Together with Ayehu, the IT team created a fully-automated process that handles this task in mere minutes, rather than the previously required week of manual work across multiple departments.

In general, the automated workflow they created performs the following steps:

  1. Import the users’ details to a CSV file from the Active Directory
  2. Compare the changes in the current details to last weeks’ details, using their existing cloud HR system and IT infrastructure
  3. Update the new users and their permissions in Active Directory and several SQL databases
  4. Open and close permissions and send a report to IT team

This entire process is now handled automatically with zero human input, which has cut the process time down by an incredible 90%!

How much time is your company wasting on manual processes and workflows? More importantly, what could your employees achieve if they were no longer bogged down by these tasks? Experience for yourself the same liberating time and cost-savings that hundreds of global organizations have already achieved.

Ayehu Software Names Fernando Malta of Teleperformance Brasil as Latest ITPA Super Hero

IT Process Automation Super HeroPalo Alto – Ayehu Software, industry leading developer and marketer of enterprise-grade IT process automation and orchestration solutions for IT and security professionals, has officially named the most recent recipient of its ITPA Super Hero Award. This time around, Ayehu has chosen Fernando Malta of Teleperformance Brasil. Fernando was selected for his use of IT process automation to create a more efficient, streamlined working environment for his team.

In his role as Senior Security and IT Governance Manager, Fernando is tasked with overseeing multiple department functions, many of which, up until recently, were still being handled manually. Prior to using Ayehu’s automation and orchestration platform, Fernando’s team was drowning in manual processes which were problematic because they were subject to operational failures. Even with a dedicated person at the helm, the group was unable to meet the deadlines set in the security policies to remove disconnected users according to best market practices.

Initially, Fernando and his team attempted to do a POC with another solution from a large manufacturer, however, due to the high cost and complexity of deployment they ultimately decided to give Ayehu a try. Once deployed, the group was able to reduce incoming monthly tickets by an incredible 2,500. Fernando has been most impressed by how fast and easy the Ayehu platform was to implement. Thanks to the rich, built-in library of IT Process Automation templates, workflows can be easily configured and modified using a drag-and-drop visual environment. Adding or modifying steps can be done with no need for coding and scripting.

“We’ve realized a number of benefits from leveraging the Ayehu platform,” comments Fernando. “If I had to name just one, however, I’d have to say it’s been the ability to use it in various company automation processes, not being closed to a single activity or limited to a number of users. We’re really excited to see how much further this technology can take us.”

Ayehu’s IT Automation Super Hero Award is given in recognition of IT professionals who utilize automation technology to improve the way their teams, departments and organizations run. Anyone in any industry who uses the eyeShare product is eligible to receive this coveted award. To learn more, or to nominate yourself, your team or someone you know, please click here.
