NFC Selects eCase HR ER and LR for Integration with NFC Systems

Leader in Adaptive Case Management Solutions Will Enable NFC Customers to Manage Labor and Employee Relations Cases More Efficiently and Securely

AINS, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based, adaptive case management solutions, announced today that its eCase® HR Employee Relations (ER) and Labor Relations (LR) Applications were selected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Finance Center (NFC) as the ER/LR solutions of choice to fully integrate with NFC’s systems. This selection gives NFC customer agencies a seamless method to procure, integrate and modernize employee and labor relations case handling. 

Using eCase HR, AINS will provide NFC with an easily configurable, quick to implement software to help their customers better manage and analyze labor and employee relations for their approximately 170 agencies and 650,000 federal employees. The ER/LR apps are available to all Federal Government Agencies on the USDA’s NFC five year, $92 million Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for Non-Core Human Resource (HR) Applications. The BPA identifies the leading applications for ER/LR and further distinguished AINS as the best of breed and key integration partner in these two categories.

Built on the award-winning eCase Platform, the ER/LR apps make the process of filing and tracking grievances, employee actions and other case types a collaborative experience. Digitizing ER/LR supports NFC’s efforts to automate essential non-core human resource functions that ensure a mission-ready workforce for their customers.  Until now, most NFC agencies relied on legacy systems and manual processes to support labor and employee relations interactions, limiting their ability to centrally track all case types and compile comprehensive reports.  ER/LR can work independently or together as an integrated suite of tools inclusive of support for Telework, Reasonable Accommodations and Worker’s Compensation cases. Designed to provide a full perspective on the employee journey, these applications deliver a greater level of transparency and collaboration, while strengthening relations between employees, managers and labor unions.

“We are honored to have been selected by NFC in both categories” said Moe Goswami, CEO of AINS. “Modernizing how agencies handle labor and employee relations is a key factor in nurturing a high performing workforce. Innovative technologies, like eCase HR, give agencies the tools they need to align, empower and engage the next generation of workers. Our selection as the key integration partner shows NFC’s understanding of how critical it is for all agencies to utilize highly agile, adaptive case management systems to solve business challenges."

eCase HR is a workflow-driven, adaptive case management solution that unifies essential human resource functions. It puts employees’ professional growth at the heart of an organization’s HR processes to improve employee engagement, employee retention and streamline HR. From onboarding through retirement, eCase HR offers a highly flexible, case-centric approach to managing the complete employee lifecycle.  As a low-code solution, eCase HR can be easily configured to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the federal government workforce.

AINS is a FedRAMPSM certified HR solution provider. FedRAMP lowers risk by ensuring compliance with stringent FISMA and NIST standards and saves significant Assessment & Authorization (A&A) costs. AINS has also been granted Authority to Operate (ATO) by USDA.

USDA NFC Selects eCase HR for $92 Million BPA

Case-centric Applications for Onboarding, Performance Management, Employee Relations and Labor Relations will improve efficiency and employee engagement

AINS, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based, adaptive case management solutions, announced today that it has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Finance Center (NFC) for Non-Core Human Resource (HR) Applications in the areas of Onboarding, Performance Management, Employee Relations and Labor Relations.

AINS’ eCase HR was selected as one of a few awardees across seven HR Solution categories. The five year, $92 million BPA will serve over 170 agencies and 650,000 federal employees. This contract is available immediately to all NFC customers, as well as non-NFC government agencies, looking to automate and streamline HR functions. NFC is an Office of Personnel (OPM) certified Shared Service Center.

The four awarded eCase HR applications—Onboarding, Performance Management, Employee Relations and Labor Relations—are built on the award-winning eCase Platform. The applications can work independently or together as an integrated suite of tools to present a centralized view of employee interactions. Fully integrated with NFC’s EmpowHR and core Human Capital Management (HCM) systems, these four applications can be deployed quickly in either AINS’ FedRAMP-certified cloud or on premise, allowing NFC customers to realize immediate benefits throughout their HR processes.

“After a very rigorous multi-phase selection process, NFC chose the best of the best in human resource technology for its customers. We are honored that our continued innovation in these four critical areas was recognized,” said Moe Goswami, CEO of AINS. “eCase HR will transform the way the Federal Government manages human capital. It makes HR processes more efficient, collaborative and transparent – shortening the timeframe to complete tasks and improving the employee experience. Shared data and a unified interface gives a big picture view of the agency allowing leaders to strategically align resources to meet their mission.”

eCase HR is a workflow-driven, adaptive case management solution that unifies essential human resource functions. It puts employees’ professional growth at the heart of an organization’s HR processes to improve employee engagement, employee retention and streamline HR. From onboarding through retirement, eCase HR offers a highly flexible, case-centric approach to managing the complete employee lifecycle. As a low-code solution, eCase HR can be easily configured to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the federal government workforce.

Unlike other custom solutions, the eCase Platform is based on configuration and not coding. This adaptability allows for quick changes, agile implementation and simple maintenance to ensure NFC customers can evolve their solution as business, technical and operational demands change. “Agencies have seen measurable results from implementing these solutions. A NFC customer agency was able to migrate off of numerous legacy systems. eCase transformed its Human Capital Management processes which resulted in greater employee engagement and a 25% cost savings in the first year. The agency was able to get the system up quickly and modify it on demand with limited IT support. This equates to less risk, lower cost of ownership, and longer system life,” said Goswami.

AINS is a FedRAMPSM certified non-core HR solution provider. FedRAMP lowers risk by ensuring compliance with stringent FISMA and NIST standards and saves significant Assessment & Authorization (A&A) costs. AINS has also been granted Authority to Operate (ATO) by USDA. For more information about eCase HR and NFC’s BPA for Non-Core HR Solutions, visit www.ains.com/nationalfinancecenter.
