Ace Hardware Enables Improved Employee Investment Decisions With Infor

Infor Total Rewards Delivers Consolidated Benefits Access

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/13 -- Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Ace Hardware has successfully implemented Total Rewards, a module of Infor Enwisen HR Service Delivery. Through this application, employees at Ace Hardware's Corporate Headquarters and 14 distribution centers now have consolidated access to information such as benefits packages, profit sharing plans and salary increases from any location.

News Points

  • Ace Hardware originally selected the module because of its ease-of-use and Infor's proven expertise in Human Capital Management.
  • Ace Hardware employees previously used multiple portals to view information on benefits. Infor Total Rewards now presents data on everything from incentive plans to healthcare options in a more user-friendly format so employees are aware of the overall compensation they receive.
  • The module provides employees with enhanced understanding, clarity and insight into retirement savings so they can make better, more informed decisions about how to utilize their earnings.
  • Infor Total Rewards allows the human resources department to present complete packages to prospects when hiring new employees. These overviews outline each part of their offer in addition to base salary in an organized way, helping Ace Hardware to be more competitive when seeking top talent.
  • Managers can use Infor Total Rewards during merit or salary reviews to outline compensation employees receive in addition to their base salary, promoting greater understanding by painting a complete picture of their earnings.
  • Because Infor Total Rewards is built with flexible dynamic coding, Ace Hardware can more easily make changes to compensation and benefits, as well as customize the module to display particular data sets on an individual user basis.
