OVERVIEW

Established in 2008, JGA have long been providing fluid labour solutions that meet evolving business demands.

They knew that to reach their aspirational growth numbers, they needed to improve their middle office functionality. Expedo has not only delivered true visibility and efficiency across JGA’s operations but complements a successful recruitment model that maintains the integrity of its workforce.

APPROACH

Simplifying processes for a
complex workforce
  • One solution: JGA require a timesheet-to-billing solution that can manage everything from the onboarding, timesheets, sales invoice generation and margin reporting of their workforce as well as assure incoming IR35 compliance. Expedo’s implementation team collaborate with JGA to start the transition to their technology.

  • Seamless integration: Leveraging Expedo’s existing integration partnership with JobAdder, a leading ATS provider, new contractor data automatically flows via API directly into Expedo. From there, workers receive one link to paperless onboarding and required compliance induction. Personal data also syncs direct with payroll.
  •  
  • Fast redeployment: Old processes required a lengthy re-onboarding of high-performing workers. Upon receiving an initial contract, JGA can instead send updated assignment specifications and deploy workers more swiftly.

  • Transforming timesheet-to-bill: Expedo’s flexible assignment architecture calculates shift wages, allowances and overtime based on a worker’s timesheet and pushes this data through to payroll. Multiple clients can now also be invoiced in a single batch and timesheet approvals automatically
    attached with audit trails, initiating faster payment.
  •  
  • Reporting in real-time: Margin reports and forecasting provide JGA with clear business insights along with performance and remuneration analytics per consultant, including the ability to split payments for commission purposes.
